The washer started to fill and stopped. I turned off machine and it took 2 minutes before the the door would open . I shut the door and it pumped some of the water out and quit. Waited 2 minutes for the door to open and did the same procedure over and over. ????????????????????

A couple things may be going on here... you may not want to hear, but the Neptune has a had many "consumer related problems".
If your complaint is "will not stop filling with water" I would access your inlet water-valve(typically blue with 2 black battery looking solenoids; where your water-lines connect directly), test for continuity and replace as necessary. Sometimes inlet-water valves also go bad where the complaint is: "no water comes in at all".
You said, you are getting a no flow error code. This washer was installed today.If I
have an air pocket, how do you get it out so the washer senses the water
First I would unplug the washer for 5 minutes and see if it resets and clears the errors!
Make sure the door is tightly closed. (Unlike
top-loaders, front-loading washing machines must be closed in order for
water to begin filling. Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.)
Then make sure the machine is plugged in to a live (or working)
electrical outlet. It's a good idea to check the appropriate circuit
breaker and reset it if needed or check the fuse if you have a fuse box.
Next, turn the control dial to the proper cycle and push the START/STOP
button firmly. Then turn both faucets (hot and cold) on all the way.
Take a look at the inlet hoses (which go from your pipes to your
washer) and straighten them out if necessary.
Turn off the faucets and then disconnect the hoses. Clean the hose
filter screens to remove any blockage that could be plugging up the
Then replace the filter screens, reconnect the hoses, turn the faucets
back on, open and close the door, and push the START/STOP button firmly
one more time.
You should be rewarded with the sound of water beginning to fill up
your Maytag® Neptune® washer. If you aren't, please contact Customer

You shouldnt be able to open the door when the washer has started and for a few minutes after it gets finished. Id=f you can then you have a faulty safety switch. The only way to open it when its started is to turn the dial to stop, and wait a few minutes until the lock turns off ( you will hear a click) then you can open the door, if its filled with water, then you shouldnt open it unless you want a puddle, you can put in on spin and get the water out before opening the door
