How do you unlock the door on a Maytag front loading washer?
Front loaders esp' don't unlock unless the cycle is done. Is there a chance your cycle knob is stuck on "rinse" or "spin"? If that doesn't work, you may want to unplug and plug in the washer to kind of "reboot" it. Beyond that I would call the manufacturer or get on their website and go to "troubleshooting". Good luck!!
Mine has done that a couple of times and I just reran it in a spin cycle and then it opened.
If the light will not go off, it may have some water in it. Unplug machine, wait a few seconds. then put plug back in outlet (elect). Should then be able to set instructions and wash

I noticed that my Maytag Maxim front load washer was flashing "Door Lock" and error code F6E1 (I think) along with annoying chimes or buzzing. It stopped right after it dispensed the detergent and I've tried all of the not so helpful repair advise on the Maytag website and I still can't get it unlocked.
Plug the washer in and give it 30 minutes. Here is mwww.justanswer.com/
Hi...having just gone through a giant washer machine kerfuffle and had to get a new machine (not an expense I needed at the moment) I respectively suggest that you call a certified repair person and have them check it out.
Washers are expensive puppies and playing doctor on them often leads to MUCH more expensive fixes than the original issue. Oh can I tell you stories about this situation :(
To me it is pennywise to spend the repair cost vs. a huge bill or worse, full replacement by being pound foolish! This is just me! I hope you can get it unlocked quickly!
