Resolved Question:

We have a Maytag Model MAH5500BWW Serial A2955546CC clothswasher. It stopped mid-cycle and the door opened before the spin cycle. When we restart it the door lock comes on and then unlocks after two seconds and nothing happens. Any thoughts?

is there any error codes that pop up on the screen?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Only PF when we unplug it and plug it back in, but when we hit the start button that goes away.

how long have you waited after you press start for it to do something?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Not long enough apparently. Because I just walked back in the room and it took off. Why do you suppose it failed the first time.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 years ago.
possibly. But often if the door get pushed open the computer just needs time to try and figure out what's going on and it will go through a few extra sequences. If the latch had failed it would have actually given you an error code on the display so I don't think that was probably your issue.
