Check the filter located at the bottom left hand corner. There is a door that you can open and pull out the filter. Be prepared for a lot of water. Your door won't open if there is water in the tub

My washer stopped during the spin because it got out of balance. Now I am unable to open the door and my clothes are stuck in the machine.


Non of the answers are helpfull. Unplug power.Remove bottom panel and there you find a door lock release. Pull n the door will unlock. Drain water from from pum(it has drain tube). Remove clothes. Move n push the tub a little on each side. Now plug drain pipe. Close door n put it to spin. Should work

Machine only hums, will not spin, wash nor will the door open.


  • It sounds like the motor is spinning, but the drum is not spinning. This usually means the belt has broken, or come off of the pulley.
  • Not pumping out the water - if the washer cannot pump out the water, the washer will not be able to spin...check the pump for not pumping.
  • Door not locking - if the door will not lock, the washer will not enter a spin mode. See if the lock light is lite on the console.
  • Broken wires at one of the out off balance switches or a bad switch itself.
  • A fairly common trouble maker has been a burnt diode on the main control board.

Maytag's Neptune washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
  1. Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.
  2. Locate the red cord near the right front corner of the dispenser opening. Pull on this red cord. This will unlatch the door so you can rescue your laundry. Then call for service.

Spin cycle works with nothing in the drum but not with clothes in


if your washer does everything but spin, it is a door lock problem. Note: The door does lock, but does not send the correct signal allowing the washer to spin!!

Maytag washer


check to make sure the door is locking when it should. If the door isn't locking or sensing that its locked the washer will not go into high speed spin.

Door stuck Locked Control Locked light on


Try unplugging the washer for at 30 minutes to reset the computer, first. If this proves unsuccessful, you can retrieve you clothes by using the manual release. The following link explains how:

Once you retrieve your clothes, try running diagnostics on it. You can envoke the diagnostic sequence by selecting DRAIN/SPIN, NO/SPIN and then pressing any button under OPTIONS 4 times (must be the same button). The display should go to "C00" as the washer begins a sequence of tests that checks the fill functions, door lock, dispenser functions, motor speed, spin and drain. Allow the washer to run through the entire sequence and shut off. If anything is wrong an error code should be generated. Hopefully, all you had was a minor glitch. Let me know how things turn out. I hope this helps you.

GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing


It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
