Hello,
I just had the same problem. The door lock wires have clips so unless you uncliped them that would not be the problem. It should be listed in the reset error code section, but I would suggest performing the system error check first before clearing the error.
Step 1 go to http://www.frigidare.com
Step 2 click on CUSTOMER SERVICE on top of page
Step 3 go to PRODUCT MANUALS and click on DOWNLOADS
Step 4 type in MODEL NUMBER and click on search
Step 5 your error code information is in the TECH DATA file there you can perform a full system check PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS POSTED
Step 6 save all PDF files to a new folder name it FRIGIDARE for easy availbility.
Thank you and good luck.

FL code on Washer


FL is a door lock code. open the soap dispenser door, and find the thin flourescent green, or bright red color nylon cord located in the front left or right areas of the dispenser area, this will allow you to manually release the door lock. Empty the washer, close the door and perform another drain and spin cycle, if the door lock still fails, you may need to have the door lock assy replaced, especially if the door lock is making a click, or buzzing soung like it wants to operate, if it's completely quiet than you may need the board replaced...Pleazer Appliance...

Maytag Neptune front load washer door is locked with clothes in the machine. How do I get it to unlock?


there is an emergency release in this, you will need to open the detergent dispenser on the top of the washer, (if you have this type) not sure without a model #. and you will be looking towards the front of the dispenser for a florescent plastic wire, this when pulled releases the door lock so you can open it, sometimes this is hard to find and you may need to remove the cover of the dispenser, ( four screws in the dispenser) and look towards the front.

Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off


Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.
