I had this problem with my Kenmore HE4t -- when I pushed the Start button the door would not lock. It just made a little click noise. In my case the problem was solved by unplugging the machine (or flip circuit breaker) for a minute. When I plugged it back in, lights blinked, I pushed cancel, and after that the machine works fine. Hope you have such good luck.

You might have a defective door switch. this is the part that locks the door and sends a signal to the processor to say that the door is already closed.

check also the wires that goes to this door switch. it could just be loose connection.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

My washer works but it will not work in the spin cycle


Every washing machine, top or front loader, has a safety feature that disables the spin functions and that is the lid switch/lock for top loaders and door switch/lock assembly for front loaders. This is to prevent injury when the lid/door is opened during a high speed spin. Check lid/door switch harness and connections. Replace lid/door switch assembly if no issue found with the harness and connections.

My front loader door wont lock


Believe it or not, you may be able to fix that yourself with some spray lubricant applied to the shaft of the electric lock mechanism, but you will have to remove the lock to lube where it's stuck. Then you will need to work the locking jaw back and forth till it breaks free then reinstall.
