in the inner door lock there is a bi-metal strip they burn out some times or the door striker plate wears they only thing to do is replace the inner door lock ans striker it is a easy fix yourself there are two screws on the inner door catch undo and take the top off your machine screws are at the back lift out the door catch there is a plug on the catch with 3 wires pull out plug if no plug mark wires before taking off there you can take the catch to your local domestic appliance shop give them the make model of your machine and show them the inner catch they might have one in stock if you have not got a local appliance shop go on line and type your make model in and look for parts for your washer they should come up with pictures i use euro parts
It sounds like the classic "someome brushed up against the lock on the door and changed the position to the locked position" ordeal. Try changing the position of the lock in the door. You should be able to look at the lock before you change it and see that it is in the wrong position and can not mate with the receiver (or nader pin). It is classic tha the door won't close when this is the case.
I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)
