Latch stuck after each load

The latch remains in the door closed position after each load. I can manually reset it by taking the cover off and it works fine until after it runs a cycle and I open the door again. Is this a latch problem or a electronics problem. Note, I have replaced the latch assembly about a year ago for a different reason

Try to turn off the breaker for the washer for 5 minutes and see if the system reset.

If not the electronic door switch sensor is bad


Let me no how it goes.

1996 oldsmobile aurora door latch in closed position.


If you know the door latch is in the closed position, then I would assume you know where the latch is and what it looks like. You should be able to take a screwdriver of the handle of a pair of pliers and push the latch up until it clicks to lock open until you close the door. Hopefully this helps.

Frigidaire front loading washer door won't lock and is stuck on pause


Good Morning Mary, thank you for allowing me to assist you.

Let's try resetting the washer. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the unit. Now close the door and select a cycle. If the issue persists, then more than likely the unit could either be experiencing a communication issue with the control board and the door latch or the door latch assembly strike is not securely latching correctly and advising the sensor that the door is properly closed.

Unable to close door


I have 2 different door problems with my 99 Park Ave: one door opens more than it should and often can't get it to move to close it and the other door opens but when trying to close it, the door will not latch closed. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by door wouldn't close, but with your mention of the metal parts, I'm gonna take a guess that it doesn't latch closed (kind of bounces back open too). For that problem I do 2 things to avoid actually fixing the problem. First, I check that the door handles are in the closed door position (my outside handle stays stuck out in the pulled position); I push them both in. If that doesn't work, I push down on the latch mechanism in the edge of the door to find that it was stuck in the open position. Once I do those 2 things, my door closes perfectly.
I hope this helped!

My 2002 Ford Thunderbird's driverside door will not close. It seems that the latch is stuck in the closed position, therefore the door will can not shut properly


In some cars it is possible to take the latch with your hand and move the mechanism enough that it will pop back into the open position for you. Be carefull if it snaps back into place your finger could get pinched.

Good luck, if you cannot reset the latch then you will have to replace it.

If you are able to reset it then I would suggest that you lubricate it to help prevent it from getting stuck again.

TAKE A SCREWDRIVER OR SOMETHING TO PUT IN THE GAP IN THE LATCH WHERE THE STIKER IN THE DOOR JAM IS WHEN IT IS CLOSED NORMALLY,& WHILE YOU HAVE THE SCREWDRIVER OR SOMETHING SIMILAR IN THE LATCH,PULL TOWARDS THE CAR WHILE YOU PULL THE HANDLE LIKE TO OPEN THE DOOR AS IF IT WAS CLOSED NORMAL,& IT SHOULD OPEN THE LATCH.

A light remains on in the dash


It's most likely the switch in the door stuck in the closed position. Or it has failed/broken in the closed position.
Sometimes the switch is just a button sticking out of the cabinet where the door pushes on it when closed -- sometimes the door latch pushes on a switch inside the latch receiver in the cabinet.

If cleaning around that switch doesn't solve the problem, you should take it to a repair shop.

Whirlpool duet washer door is open. I can't close it because the latch is stuck in the "locked" position.


The first thing to try is to hold the cancel button for 15 seconds. The more labor intensive solution is this: Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.

Soap door latch won't latch close


Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!
