NEXXT 300 FRONT LOAD WASHER SHOWS CODE E-01. DOOR WILL NOT OPEN AND THE HOW TO VIDEOS ARE ALL FOR MACHINES WITH COMPLETELY ROUND DOORS, THIS MACHINE DOOR HAS LARGE PORT HOLE IN A SORT OF THUMB SHAPED DOOR....


Have you tried powering off/disconnecting the power cord to the wall? Then try plugging it in and turning it on - it may revert to the default "unlocked door" state.
If the door is still locked there is generally a manual release that is accessed from a panel that you need to remove below the door lock mechanism. On my model I had to prop up the front of the washer to access the screws - the panel runs the full width of the washer in my case. Once the panel is removed you should find a plastic rod hanging down from the lock that you pull down on - and then open the door at the same time.
My door lock mechanism went bad on my Bosch washer and I had to replace it - but it did give me a warning (though I wasn't sure what was going on at first). My washer makes a loud noise when locking/unlocking the door - that's the solenoid engaging/dis-engaging. In my case it started making that noise more than just once - first a couple of times, then 3 or 4, then finally about 8 times before it gave up the ghost a week or so later.
There are a bunch of videos online that are generic in nature about how to replace that door locks on front load washers... but essentially you need to remove the retaining spring/wire that is holding the rubber seal onto the washer opening, then peel the rubber seal away from the washer to allow access to the door lock mechanism. Replace and reverse the process.

Whirlpool Duet washer will not start . Hear a clicking noise then receive DL F fault


The clicking sound is coming from the door lock/switch assembly trying to lock the door but it cannot. After six trials, the error code "FdL" shows up on the display. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear it.

The only way to fix the problem is by replacing the door lock/switch assembly with part numer 8181700 and costs about $40-$55. Some vendors listed it as part number 1094190 or PS972231. Below is the replacement procedure.

Door Lock/Switch Replacement Procedure
  1. Unplug the machine and open the door.
  2. Stretch the retainer spring of the seal boot retaining hoop then remove it. The seal boot is the gray rubber around the door opening. The retaining spring is located at the bottom of the door opening. The door lock/switch assembly is located on the right side of the door opening.
  3. Ease the part of the seal boot off the lip of the door opening near the door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the seal boot to gain access to the door lock/switch assembly behind the front panel of the washer. Be careful not to tear the seal boot because it will cause water to leak from the tub.
  4. Remove the three screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel.
  5. Lift the door lock/switch assembly and pull it away from the front panel then pull it out of the machine.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness connector and connect the new door lock/switch assembly.
  7. Reinstall the new door lock/switch assembly and the seal boot in reverse order of the procedure above.

Door lock lites keeps flashing but the door is not locked


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.
