The door is locked and won't open and the door lock icon isn't even lit up when the door is locked. The letters keep blinking the letters "FL" on the timer screen after about a minute after I try to start or pause the wash cycle? What do I do?

Re: I can't unlock the door
Fencer, you probably have a bad door lock switch. There was a technical bullitin out by Maytag regarding this (TS740). The deal is that the plunger of the switch is depressed but the contacts don't close. The machine control board senses the door is not locked and won't send the signal to unlock it. You can try to put the machine in the service mode by pressing delicates and heavy soils together for 3 seconds. Advance to the board output tests by then pressing rinse. After that press the max extract key to lock the door and the xtra rinse key to unlock the door. See if it works for you. You may want to call Maytag and inquire about the service bullitin, maybe you can get it covered. There is a manual door release in the dispenser section. The pull tab should be toward the front. You may have to remove the screws and remove the dispensor to get at it. Catriver...post back.

This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.
Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.
if you machine is warranty you must call to the whirlpool, and get the assistance via online chat. However you must wait about 180 seconds since you did the command STOP, and stop the motor, fi the water level is higher must be drain before the latch door unlock. 2) if do not obey press and hold END OF CYCLE, wait about 10seconds 3) reset the machine unplugged from wall by 45 minutes, and then plug again, and turn on and unlock the door
I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.
I held down the clear button for three seconds, it unlocked but still showed the lock button lit. It began beeping over and over. I opened the door and pressed the clear button again for three seconds. It stopped and the oven works just fine now. In fact, I used it right after I got it cleared out.
