Electric dryer not get heat


Inspect the front door lock if "F22" is displayed. Press the "Pause/Cancel" button two times. Close the washer door firmly to latch the door. Remove clothing preventing the door from closing and latching. Press the "Power" button, followed by the "Start" button.

When trying to start machine i get a dl then beeps then flashes f. when i try to open the door after its off it wont open. thanks carol


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” or "F dl"means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

Door latch is stuck


The latch mechanisim may just be jammed. You can try accessing and pulling on the manual release to see if this will reset the latch and enable you to close the door. The following link explains how:

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My maytag front louder door won't lock or even stay shut?


it sounds like you have broken the switch which keeps the door latched when not in use as well as locks when the washer is started. These latches often fail when someone forces the door open to add more clothes without pushing the pause button AND waiting until the "locked" light goes off. Older children and teens and yes, uninformed men, are apt to do this. You will need a repair person.

I have the neptune front loader. The lock light wont come on and the door wont lock. During a wash cycle the water just started comming out of the door. If I hold the stop/start button manually the light...


hi there,

you have a door latch problem. the reason you can still push on the button is because this particular washer has a time delay function. i would recommend taking a look at the latch itself and possibly the wax motor that runs the latch.

Maytag neptune won;t rinse


Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.

Washer door pops open during wash cycle


Start the washer in a cycle. When the door locked light comes on, before unit gets to full of water, see if you can pull door open. If so, you probably have a broken latch. The wax motor is activating the switch, but latch is not actually closing. There was a door latch upgrade for some of these models.
