My ancient (2000) Neptune has had door latch issues almost from the beginning. But it finally did itself in last week; it is permanently locked with a load of wet clothes inside. The door can be pried open about an inch. My husband is pretty sure he's going to have to cut the latch. I'm hoping a genius here can help me by giving us an alternative. I know this machine is way beyond its normal lifespan but I LOVE my Maytag and hate the thought of tossing it in the dumpster.
