- Find the power switch to the right of Neptune’s Start / Pause button.
- During the first 30 seconds of the start of the cycle, press the Off button to cancel the cycle in progress.
- Empty the washing machine if you press the power button while there is water in the tub.
The most common cause is the presence of water in the machine. Try doing a spin / drain cycle. If this is not possible, the machine can be emptied by placing the washing machine drain hose lower than the drum (in a bucket or drawer). The door lock clicks into place.
- Disconnect the washing machine from the mains.
- Find two screws about four inches from the floor near the bottom two corners of the machine.
- Pull the bottom of the front panel of the device, then pull down to release the two plastic clips on the top of the front panel.
- Lift the front edge at the top of the machine.
Disconnect the washing machine from the mains or turn off the machine’s power switch. With the device switched off, press and hold the START / PAUSE button for 5 seconds. Reconnect the washing machine or turn it back on.
You can break the cycle. When the cycle is stopped, it will take 30 +/- seconds for the locking mechanism to unlock.
Pull the handle and lift on one side of the door to release the barrel and spring mechanism. Spray the mechanism with the spray while operating the drum with the other handle. The spring should loosen enough to retract the barrel. Reassemble the button when you are satisfied with the operation.
If the AXI washing machine is disconnected from the mains or the power supply is interrupted during the wash cycle or before switching off on the control panel, the door remains locked. Simply reconnect or turn on the product, and then turn off the product using the button on the control panel. The door will now be unlocked.
Reach inside the front and locate the bottom of the door switch / locking mechanism. There is a teardrop tab at the bottom of the door switch / lock. Gently pull the tab down about 1/4 inch or until you hear a click. The door can now be opened.
To unlock the controls, intentionally press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 3 seconds or until the control lock indicator goes off. If the operation lock does not go off, I recommend disconnecting the washing machine from the mains for 5 minutes. Plug the device back in and see if the controls respond.
