Lots of noise, and no action. Machine doesn't work. Sounds like it's trying to spin. The noise is like a coin sorter at work.
I tried powering off and waiting to get door open and get the clothes out, but no luck.
I'm having the same problem! I tried turning it off and on, unplugging it, rerunning a cycle, as well as enter the service mode.

Sounds as if you have something doen in the pump preventing it from draining and in doing so shutting the machine off as a safety action. I think you can actually access the pump from the rear of the machine. just unplug the machine, prepare to get wet, take the back of the machine off, take the lines off the pump and check for the blockage.
Sounds like a belt problem. you can take the back off of this machine to see the belt and the motor. There is 3 screws on the back cover 2 on the rleft as you look at the back of the machine and 1 on the right. remove these to get a look at the belt and motor.
It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.
i also have this problem. to get the door to unlock, just unplug the washer and it should open in a min or two. you will hear a click. you may have a mini flood but at least you can get your cloths out and bail out the water. my problem started when i began using a new detergent from Tide called total care. Still tying to get the pump to work.
You said, you have a situation with my washer machine
(Maytag Neptune front loader). It was making the noise several times as
latching the door, then if would go off and you could not open the door, You found the under soap deposit cord but the situation is not opening
the door or no, it is getting he machine to work. Whichever cycle you press, the door makes the locking noise several times, sometimes the
door can not be opened and the lock door light is off, the thing is
that whichever cycle you try the numbers on the electronic pad would go
down several numbers and then it will again make the door locking noise
and will stop there, the start button begins flashing and the machine
does not wash at all on any cycle, neither it spins or rinses. Can you
please, please, help me? Ohooo... some times after trying and trying
get the FL code... you have tried keeping it disconnected from the
electricity for long periods, plugging it back and all you can think
off.... but nothing!!!
You did the right thing
The Maytag Neptune had a lot of very different defects that Maytag was, and is aware of still. That is why they discontinued that model . But if you call Maytag service this time, you may find that it will be one of those defects in their design and an authorized Maytag person will recognize which fault is taking place. perhaps they may cover the parts if you bring it to their attention.
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: No power
to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged
in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?
the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not
function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing
near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front
of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near
the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit
won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
