Customer Question

2002 Maytag neptune front load washer model #1007621. I put a load in the washing machine and the code says do. I paused the machine and tried to open the door. I unplugged the machine and the door will not open.

How do I open the door?

DO means the unit thinks the door is open which means that your door latch assembly has likely failed. Open your dispenser and remove the bleach and softner compartment. There is a plastic cord somewhere near the front of the dispenser. Pull on the cord and it will manually open the door. If you still have problems, you'll need to replace your door lock components.
