Front load washer doesn't turn itself on when door closed and cycle picked

I load the washer, pick the cycle, close the door and push the 'on' switch. Nothing happens. I have to push on the bottom of the door to activate the switch to start the cycle. How can I access this switch and adjust it to activate when the door is closed?

First check the door if it is still properly aligned try to tightened first the two screw of the door sometimes it is loose align it, reset your machine, if it is still the same, now take a look on the rubber gasket attached to the shell cabinet, there is a big plastic clamp or a rounded wire with spring on the other end it is the gasket lock, pull it u can return it by reinserting it back, wire lock-just stretch it and put it back,after doing that-pull the gasket slowly,to your right the door lock is located, check if it is misaligned-difinitely no problem with your door lock it is a matter of alignment - happy washing

Washer smells like mildew after a load of wash, clothes smell.


Use a washer cleaner like AhFresh (all three tablets) with the tub clean cycle, no clothes in the washer. Now, only use 1 to a maximum of 2 tablespoons of HE laundry detergent per cycle. Due to low water consumption of these machines, you must adjust soap usage or odors will result. It may also help to leave door open for a hour or so after cycle is finished to allow inner tub to dry completely.

Washer runs when timer dial turned though ON button not pushed


Problem solved by ourselves! It was NOT in the circuit board (brain) of the machine. It was NOT in the door locking assembly as others would lead us to believe. It WAS the on/off switch on the control panel--part number 22002560 - a $22.00 problem fix.

Maytag neptune won;t rinse


Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.
