Question about LG WD-1080FD Front Load Washer
MY WASHING MACHINE DOOR IS STUCK SHUT. i'VE TRIED REWASHING, BUT IT SILL WONT OPEN. CAN YOU HELP. WITH THANKS YVONNE
Sorry for VERY late solution. I have an LG front loader machine and it has just broken. While surfing the internet, I found your blog. LG front loaders have a weak door handle, that breaks after a few years of operation. All the LG models seem to be the same. Replacement door handles are relatively inexpensive and readily available.To open your STUCK door, I would use a thin butter knife....slide the butter knife between the door and the frame of the machine until you hit the metal latch. Push the latch towards the centre of the machine and open the door.In the interim until you can get it fixed, this workaround method will work, enabling you to continue washing.Hopefully LG will make future models door handles out of cast, or something stronger!

The best way to open the the if stuck is to use some wire thin and put around the doorand pull it to the hinge end (don't forget to hold both ends ) it will pull the catch back

Firstly, for safety reasons, unplug the machine. I had the same problem and just found a quick solution without breaking the lock. Using a then object (in my case a butter knife) jam it between the door and the machine itself creating a gap through which the water can pass through (make sure you have a bucket handy!). Once the water has been emptied out of the machine plug it back in and it should open up (the sensors realise there is no more water in the system). Good luck!

Hello, I have the same problem with mine. I tried the extra load - nothing. I called LG who said unplug and leave for 15min as it tends to lose its memory and needs to be reset. No luck. Did another wash and tried again, nothing. It's still under warranty, but noone can come to look at it for a week and if I get anyone else out, the warranty isn't valid... If anyone has answer, it would be great! Becca

Ok so this is a year too late but if you select pump and start the machine will pump out the water and then the cycle ends and the door open light comes on and it should open. cheers, Bexta

Either clip on the door is faulty or its the door interlock in which the door locks into easily replaced by undoing the clip pullling back the door rubber and replacing ..
