Resolved Question:

I have just purchased a maytag front loader Maxima QS 400(just got it yesterday) and today when I did the third wash it ran for about 15 minutes and then flashed F01 and then right after F08. The "door locked" light began to flash. The machine continued to run because I could hear it humming but the washing and tumbling etc stoped completely. I did what the instructions for troubleshooting told me - to press power/cancel to clear the code and then press power/cancel again to restart washer. The washing process did not start. I eventually had to pull the plug because pressing the power button would not turn the machine off. I was able to move the setting to a rinse/spin cylcle and that cycle completed. I tried again with another load and the exact same thing has happened.
