It appears your switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Contact the manufactures web site and request the needed information through their customer support. There should be a link at the very bottom of the web page.

Replace boot gasket


Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Thanks

The door is bent a bit and now won't shut right unless slammed just right. I doesn't look bent but must be. I know I have trouble opening it after a wash where it seems stuck and I am sure the previous...


That model has 2 hinges on the door, and one or both of the hinges are probably bent, not the door. The good news is that they are pretty cheap to buy the hinges, and it only involves 8 screws, its an easy fix. After you do that, if you still have problems with the door lock, then it probably got damaged from the door closing when it was bent, and you would need to replace either the door lock or the door strike if the strike on the door is broke. I have replaced many of these hinges for this problem, and havnt come across the door lock getting damaged in the process, but have had to replace a few broken door strikes. hope this helps, good luck.

Lg wd-8013c washer door latch broken. Is there an emergency release?


Hi,

Run a shoelace between the door and the face of the washing machine, starting at the top, over the latch on the middle of the right hand side and down to the bottom.

Pull both ends of the shoelace towards the hinge on the left.

This pulls open the latch with NO DAMAGE and allows access to the screws that remove the latch mechanism. Easily ordered and installed with two screws and a plug to reattach.

LG give no support or reference to this easy procedure in their manual. SHAME!

Broken door hinge replacement on Hotpoint Ultima


Remove all the screws securing the 2 door halves together, and gently prize apart the two halves with a screwdriver or similar, be careful not to drop the door glass.. You will probably be better off removing the door from the front of the m/c altogether.
Replace broken parts as req'd.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Belling SGE12X broken door handlw


it's not an easy job to replace a door handle, but to release it for the door to open, turn off the machine at the outlet and unplug. Take the top of the machine off and slide your hand down to the door catch. Depending which type of catch it is, you should either be able to push down a small lever on top or push up a small lever on the bottom or the door catch.

I hope this helps

Remove doors


on top of the refrig is a plastic cap that snaps over the hinge. pry this off. there are some small bolts with 5/16" hex head bolts. remove these and the door should lift off the bottom pin. if you wish to change the opening direction of the door, you need to change the bottom pin location to the other side of the fridge. there should be some plastic plugs in the door mullion on the opposite side of the original position which you pry out. unscrew the bottom hinge and refasten it to the new location. same goes for the upper hinge pin and its hardware.

Change rubber gasket


Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversable, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everthing. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. We used strong vice grips and much struggling and sweat, and #@*&%!&@ and finally got it on without damage to the new gasket. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.
