Latching a Front Load Washer Door

Latching your Maytag Front Load Washer Door

Is the door completely latched?

Close the washer door by pushing it firmly until the latch clicks.

The door may look closed, but may not be latched. Open and close the door firmly; the door must be completely closed and latched for the washer to operate. Once started, the door will lock, unlock, and lock again. This is normal and is a self-test of the lock mechanism. 

Ensure clothing items are not stuck in the door seal or latch.
