The door lock is design to stay locked if the water level is above a certain level, therefore it is possible that you have a blockage in the outlet hoses or an obstruction in the pump. Check you manual for the procedure.

Error code d5 on front load neptune washer


d5 is a door lock error code,more than likely a bad door latch it's an easy repair,here is a link to the Neptune repair manual this the Mah 3000 but they all come apart the same way the only real difference was in the control panel and the door latch in yours uses a solenoid to lock instead of a wax motor

Maytag Neptune door lock stuck!!!


Try these steps:

1.) Take the washer outside. 2.) Loosen the two screws on the back panel and remove the back panel. The pump sits on the left-side of the opening. There's a black water hose with a metal clamp; 3.) squeeze the metal clamp with your fingers until it's loose enough to slide away from the pump. 4.) Separate the hose from pump and the trapped water will pour out and the door will then open; and 5.) clear any blockage from the drain hose and the pump.

I have a neptune MAH-1 washer, the door locked


if you remove the back console, youll be able to see the "machine controlboard". appro. ha;f way down and favoring the left side of circuit board youll notice a small blue relay cover(MAYBE 3/8"X1/2" in size. well just above that relay cover you see a resistor that will be physically burnt out( a real noticable burn ring around it) if this is the case you need to replace the board as well as the "wax motor" within the latch assy.

A string from one of the clothes got stuck in the lock mechanism and the door won't unlock


If the door fails to unlock after 11 attempts, you will see the "LO" code. If this was caused by foreign matter infiltrating the latch area try this. Open the dispenser lid and look for a plastic cord tucked away towards the front. It's the same as "weed whacker" cord. Grasp this cord firmly and pull it from right to left (away from the latch). This is the emergency cord to open the door after a latch failure. remove any debris that would hamper the operation of the latch assembly. Close the door and try going into a spin cycle to check the door lock operation.

E3 code showing sometimes on Neptune MAH-3


“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

Maytag neptune washer MAH-1 start button turns off, does not spin


Hi!

Is it pumping water? If not then pump is bad.
Is the door 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.

Check for continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch when the switch actuator button is pressed in. If there is no continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch, replace the Door Lock Switch Assembly.(Check for 120 vac across the Door Lock Wax Motor)

Please rate this solution and ask for further clarifications if needed.

Thanks
Rylee
