The door to my washer won't shut tight enough for the lock to engage. We replaced the locking mechanism on the door itself and it will run if we hold the door shut.


A possible simple repair can be attempted at the hinge of the door place a towel/washcloth/or other suitable clothing to add a soft jamming space and GENTLY!!! push the DOOR in an attempt to close it, place one hand at the normal closing area and the other opposite 1/3 of the way from the hinge. If there is not enough wedge fold over garment at hinge and make it thicker do this until door will close properly.

I have a maytag front load mah4000aww. i replaced the wax motor and motor board put it back together. when i tried to wash a load water started to come out of the door. any suggestions would be gratefully...


The door is most probably out of alignment with the front shroud. Slightly loosen the door hinge screws and close the door firmly making sure it is fully and evenly seated into the shroud. Retighten the lower hinge screw but not fully tight. Retighten the upper hinge screw but not fully tight. Fully retighten the lower hinge screw then the upper hinge screw.

Door must be slammed hard to close.


Do you suspect that the reason the door won't close easily is because of bent door/hinges or some other reason? If it is because of bent hinges a trick is to take an 11/32" deep well socket (1/4" drive) and place it in the lower corner of the door and slowly close. Repeat on other side. This will bend the hinges back to a position where the door will latch easily. If you suspect a different cause, please let me provide me more information and I will try to help you. Hope this helps some and best wishes.

MAHW2000AWW washer front load washer leaks. Leaks from the front door.


Some of the new front load washers develop damaged hinges from too much laundry detergent..With that said, when you close the door..does it close easily or do you have to work it in? Try using your knee against the hings side to 'nest ' the door when you close it.. .. Also.. take a good look at the gasket material for any abnormalities or tears in it.. Hope that helps...

Bosch 500 series Front Load Washer Door hanging a bit lower than when purchased


Even if you do not realise it most people lean on the door as they open it, to rectify with the door open but almost in the closed position lift the door by pulling up on the door catch end, this will straiten the hinge, very common problem Regards Engineer
