SOURCE: Maytag Neptune front loader door latch won't release

rewpa, 98% chance the door latch has stuck in the locked position. Yes, follow Maytags suggestion to access the "rip cord" for the door latch... (this is the mechanical override for it) to get the door open. After it's open, run another load of wash and see if it happens again. If it does, it is the door latch assy. that's the problem. BTW, the door lock light is activated by a switch in the door latch assy. There's a "motor" in the assy... it's made of WAX! Yes, a "wax motor". Before the computer goes into spin, it sends 120V to this motor. The electricity heats the wax and it expands. As it expands, it pushes a plunger forward. This plunger trips both the door lock AND the switch. This sends the signal to the door light AND the computer saying "I'm locked! Go ahead and Spin!" When the cycle is complete, the computer drops the voltage to the wax motor. The wax cools off and contracts. This retracts the plunger... opening the door and shutting off the light. So... if this light stays on, the plunger is still extended and can be overridden using the rip cord. If this happens again, let me know and I'll step you through disassembly and replacement of the wax motor.

If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If 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 replace it.

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.

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper

How to unlock a Maytag double oven


Hi Mary,If the door locked after you started the oven!
Press Cancel/Off key to start a latch reset, wait 20-30 seconds and open door, or turn the power off at the circuit breaker or fuse box for one minute, then turn the power back on.
If the oven has a manual latch handle!
Allow the oven to cool, approximately 30-90 minutes, move the latch arm to the left to unlock the door.
If the latch arm will not move after cooling to room temperature, or is stuck in between full right and full left positions, schedule service.
Is the oven door locked due to power failure during Self-Clean? If the oven door locked due to a power failure during a self cleaning cycle!
Select the "Self Clean" option, then select "Cancel". Wait a couple of minutes then try to start the cycle again.
If you started the oven clean cycle by mistake!
Press Cancel/Off key. The oven will need to cool to approximately 200F(95C) before the oven door will open.
Was there an error message!
Follow directions in the display, and refer to the Error Code Symptom, or:
Reset power to the oven!
  • Power the oven down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) or fuse(s) or if you can, unplug the oven for one (1) minute.
  • Turn the power back on turning on the circuit breaker(s) or fuse(s) or plugging it back in.
  • Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.
  • Verify the ovens operation.
Kind regards
David

Why won't my Whirlpool Senseon Dryer start? The control panel will not respond. No buttoms will light up or beep. The dryer has power and the door latch works properly and the light comes on inside


Always disconnect power before attempting any service. Most electric dryers require 240 volts to operate properly.
You may have only 120 volts to supply the dryer which will give you your symptoms. Click dryer circuit breaker off then back on to reset 240 volt system.Still no heat/run

Normal wash lite flashing


Hi, try pushing Normal Wash - Heated Dry - Normal Wash - Heated Dry. This should enter the diagnostics cycle and reset any faults. If it will not reset or enter the diagnostics cycle then the door latch assembly must not be engaging when you close it. You will need to check the door latch to make sure that the switches are engaging. If they are not, you will need to replace the door latch switch assembly.

Maytag washer Neptune flashes ul code


Hi there,

Well most probably its FL error code it means failure to lock. Try unplugging the unit for 60 seconds to reset the control board and then plug it back in and see if it will reset. If not, then you will need to replace the door latch assembly. Try pressing STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. If further you have the same problem then you need to change the door latch assembly.

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

MAytag dryer will not run. Has Power but will not start. No sensing light.


Was your dryer taking a long time to dry clothes? If so you should first check your vent and then suspect your dryer thermal cutoff.
Or,
this problem could be your door latch switch. Is your door more difficult to open, OR, sometimes pops open / or opens really easy? Then your door latch switch could be bad.

Power not coming on


When a dishwasher appears to be dead, many times the door latch is to blame. On some models, that latch has a safety interlock switch directly controls the power, so that when the door is opened during a wash cycle, power is removed.

The problem is that the interlock switch can fail or get un-aligned, so the dishwasher does not get power.

Depending on your skill level, you can investigate the problem, using a phillips screw driver to open up the latch so you can see the interlock.
Good Luck!

Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW will not spin out. Unplugged to reset and all lights will blink and set to pause. When you press start, it eventually clicks like it is locking to start, machine turns off and...


it sounds like a door latch problem. the door latch has a small "wax" motor in it that causes a lot of problems. unless you have a bunch of time to spend learning about how it works i would suggest calling a professional.
