I have an Electrolux front loading washer. I just got done washing a load of laundry and the door will not unlock. I tried washing it for a second time thinking maybe it would open again. No luck.

    This is going to sound really stupid but the same thing happened to mine. After running the cycle twice- the door was still locked. I tried the pause button (which usually would pop the door open mid cycle) and that didnt work. The cancel button didnt work. So I decided to simply UNPLUG the machine for a couple of minutes. When I plugged it back in- CLICK! the door unlocked immediately! Saved me a visit from the plumber :)

SOURCE: WFMC 3200 Front Load Washer: how do i unlock door? bosch washer was just deliv...

Hi, welcome to fixya. The emergency latch release is behind the small round panel below the main tub door. **Unplug the washer or turn off the breaker before attempting any suggestion given here please** To open the access door ( small round panel ) you'll require a small round needle shaped object or really narrow screwdriver. Put it in the small hole in the panel push in slightly and turn to about 6 o'clock...clockwise that is The small round cover should now come off and expose the pump with the string going through a hook on the pump housing. Be very careful as the edges are very sharp. A string will be threaded through the pump housing and you just need to pull it to open the main door. Let me know how you make out and also if you require further assistance with this problem. If you don't require further assistance and this indeed was helpful to you, please allow a moment to rate this solution I've given accordingly. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer shows door not locked

Try pressing 'end of cycle' for 3 seconds. You hear a click? Then wait for 2 minutes before trying the door, do not force door. No luck? Plug off the mains. Tilt machine backwards to unscrew 3 screws below the front panel, the kick panel. Slide the panel downwards & out.

Put your hand up towards the lock portion (inside the machine that is), you will feel a tear shaped thing, pull this thing a quarter of an inch down, the door will click open. Check to see that all wires are connected well.

Next try some WD40 on the door mechanism on machine, not on door, & try the door open/close a few times. Would be nice to know what happened............free service remember.(!)

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?


Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.

Electrolux washer door won't open


Hi.

Usually the door does not open because there is water inside the tub.

Disconnect power and empty the machine through the drain filter. With Electrolux front-loading washers the drain filter access is located in the front lower side of the machine.
