Maytag MAH8700 - NP error code - Door locked and won't open
I don't know if you are aware of this, but Maytag did a recall on this washer in March 2007 where there was a risk of water leaking into the control panel and shorting out the board. You can follow this link to see if your washer was affected based on the serial number:
Here is a link to your user manual to see if it offers any help. The only thing I saw was to use the Cycle Selector button to unlock the door.
I found this on the Maytag site:
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment or Add Clothes light off?
If the Add A Garment or Add Clothes light is off, then the washer
door will unlock after the Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel button is pressed
twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running
due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water
temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for
the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock.
You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
You could also try their customer service number to see if they have a script for this problem: 1-800-688-9900
The only other solution I can offer is to disassemble your washer if its that urgent and you can't get a repairman out there.
