Some of these machines have a door lock that dose not unlock for a min. or two after wash is done. If so try the door now & it should open.

2. Press the Start/Pause
3. Wait for the door lock light to go out (Immediately).
4. Add the item, close the door, and press the Start/Pause
The door safety state continues for 15 seconds and the cycle is restarted.
ensure thorough cleaning,
To
Try washing bedding, towels, undergarments,
contact using the ActivFresh
GETTING STARTED
1. Load your washer.
2. Close the door.
Z_
Push the laundry into the drum completely to prevent the laundry from being caught in the door or
....... from falling out of the drum.
3. Press the Power button.
4. Add detergent and additives to the dispenser (page 20-21).
5. Select the appropriate cycle and options for the load (page 14-16).
6. Press the Start/Pause
7. The Wash Indicator light will illuminate.
8. The estimated cycle time will appear in the display.
The time may fluctuate to better indicate the time remaining in the cycle.
The actual time required for a cycle may differ from the estimated time in the display depending on the
water pressure, water temperature, detergent, and laundry.
9. Before your washer starts to fill, it will make a series of clicking noises to check the door lock and do a
quick drain.
,
When the cycle is complete, the door lock light will go out and "End" will appear in the display.

DO NOT attempt to open the door until the door lock light is off. To add a forgotten item, see
"Loading your washer" section (page 13).

When your washer is restarted after a pause, expect a delay of up to 15 seconds before the cycle
continues.

Pressing Power button cancels the cycle and stops your washer.

The pre wash, wash, rinse and spin indicator lights will illuminate during those portions of the cycle

Door stuck closed after wash is done


If the water in the machine is above a certain level a fail safe on the door lock will not allow it to be opened. Check the filter, make sure the machine has completely drained. Obviously, there may be a problem with the lock itself but try this first.
All the best

Once the wash cycle begins, the washer door is locked and cannot open until complete cycle is done. Is this normal or is there a way to stop wash cycle and open the door?


If this is a front load washer, yes it's normal.
You wouldn't want your laundry and all the water falling out on the floor because the door didn't lock, would you ?

If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


  1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
  2. Do
  3. Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.
  4. FL
  5. The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
  6. Sd
  7. The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.
  8. PF
  9. The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  10. Nd
  11. The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.
  12. LO
  13. The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  14. Lr
  15. The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional.

MAYTAG NEPTUNE DOOR LOCKED WILL NOT OPEN!


The comment posted 14 may 2009 it what helped me. DO NOT PRY OPEN the door. Find the release cord inside the soap dispenser,,,you may have to remove the 4 screws and lift it from the washer like i did. I had to lean into the door and pull the cord to release the lock. It was not a system error. The washer was over loaded and although the door was closed and locked...the load pushed the door enough to indicate that it was open and would not wash. After opening the door, rearranging the load and removing some, the door closed and latched locked and was able to continue with the wash. DO NOT PRY OPEN,,,use the cord release first,,,this worked for me.

Door is locked! Won't open! Laundry is stuck inside!


If the water has not completely emptied, this wont allow the door to open. Check by lowering the outlet hose into a bowl. If a fair amount of water comes the problem is likely to be a pump blockage
