You need to re-connect the power, leave for a few (20 seconds) then open the door. assuming you have emptied out all the water. the door have a timer fitted.

Light won't turn off of front loader model 796.4044


For a second i was thinking of a front end loader vehicle not a washer.
The light is on depending on the inputs into the main control board. The door lock could be causing this problem or the main control board could cause this type of problem.
Something a tech needs to analyse.
If you are mechanical at all try finding the door lock on repairclinic parts web site or appliance parts pro site. Many times there are fix it videos. Can't belive the switch would cost much. Alot less than the control board! Would eliminate one cause.
If you work on it unplug it!!

If you unplug and plug back in at least that should clear out the code and you can do a load. Not a permanent fix but better than not being able to do anything.

Hope this helps a little.

I just replaced the door latch on my kenmore front loader washer model 11047532601 the door locked light doesnt come on and the door locked light isnt coming on all i get is beep beep beep


Hello,

You have a bad CCU. This is the control board on the top of the unit. Remove the top, three screws on the back. The board clips into the position. You can try to unplug the wires one at a time, the control will probably have to be replaced.

With the model I would be able to better assist you.

My front loader door is locked and will not open, I have tried to restart, unplug and everything the machine is turned off and the door still will not open.


First unplug the washer. Remove the front valance under the door (three screws at bottom front of machine) reach up inside by the door lock area and there will be a plastic tab, pull that tab down and that should unlock the door.

Whirlpool washine machine #AWM 3082 - door wont open


Try to unplug the unit for five minutes, then plug back in. Try to start a load, as soon as the door locks agian, hit cancel. That will sometimes let you get back in. Im not sure if this is a top loader or front loader, but there is a way (if its a front loader) to remove the bottom front kick plate, then you have to reach up the inside to the door latch assm, on the bottom of that is a small round handle, pull it straight down, and the door will unlock. If its a top loader (i.e. Cabrio, Oasis, Etc), you can open the top only by unclipping the top from the base. You can do this by putting a putty knife in between the top and cabinet, then finding the clips, pushing them in and lfting, you can get your stuff out that way.
