Check out your outlet drain filter. Possible this is clogged or something or the water shd just drain. To reset press pause and reset together for about 4 seconds. Suggestions, ideas.

The door on my Hotpoint Washing Machine WT741 won't open even though the programme has ended. We've tried running the programme again and pumping out but still the door won't open.


The door latch may have broken. You can sometimes open the door from the inside. You will know the door latch is broken if the door handle is floppy. If the door handle is not floppy - then the issue is probably with the door interlock. This is the electronic part that prevents the door from being opened during and after the wash has finished.
Either way - you'll need to get the door open.
To do this, unplug the washing machine from the mains and then move it out from where it is. Tip the washing machine to a 45 degree angle. Don't tip it over 45 degrees as you may break internal parts.
You need two people to do this - one person hold the machine at 45 degrees angle, whilst the other person puts their hand up into the machine - you should be able to feel the door catch mechanism and depending on the model, open the door that way. Sometimes the manufacturer has helpfully put a manual release inside - and sometimes they don't.
If you aren't able to open the door using that method. Get a length of strong string and poke the middle section of the string into the gap between the washer door and the machine body - to the right of the door handle. Use a flat headed screw drive to push the string into the gap, all the way around the door, so that you end up with the two ends of the string on the left hand side of the door. Now have someone put the ends of the string whilst the other person pulls the door handle. If the string is pushed in far enough it will release the door latch and the door will open. It takes a bit of persistence to get it right.
Once you have the door opened you can usually replace either the interlock mechanism or the door latch itself. Parts are easily available online from sites like espares and yourspares.

Maytag maxima door locked


Similar problem here - pump was set for a 58 minute normal cycle, I look in and see it is now showing 67. Hmm. Attempt to shut it off because it is just sitting there pumping and pumping. Power shuts off but pump keeps running and add garment light flashing red. Cannot open door (to add garment or not) Unplug the unit and the door will not open. Anybody got a clue what's up? I have a wash in, service is closed due to a storm today. Just bugs me that it is 6 months old and seems to act up a fair bit electronically.

My GE Spacemaker (HVM1540) will not turn off. Often when we use it and open the door to get food out, then we reclose the door and it continues to run. Even after hitting Clear/Off it continues to run...


Ok I have the same model and mine was doing the same thing. Apparently this model has a reputation of problems with the control board. I played with mine for hours and here's what finally worked: unplug the unit (or shut off the breaker--whichever's easier for you), take a dry cloth and wipe the door latches and control board clean of any residue. Then with the door still open, gently jiggle the control board by firmly grasping with your hand. Power up your unit again. This worked for me. The control board is really fussy and should be clean and free of any dust or residue. I notice this happens again when it gets dirty so I repeat the process and it's been working.....so far!!!

44082 is the model #


he code "dr" means the control doesn't see the door switch being closed.This can mean the door catch is broken or the door is bent and not shutting all the way or clothes are preventing the door from shutting all the way but most likely it means the door lock assembly needs to be replaced.
Check the door strike is not broken and make sure the door is shutting evenly. If the door is shut fully and the "dr" error keeps occurring then replacing the lock assembly 131763245 will most likely fix this problem.
The switch can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . Remember to unplug the washer first before attempting to change the switch.
The image below contains the instructions to access and change the latch. Changing the latch is easy the tough part is putting the spring back on. Sometimes it helps to have two extra hands when trying to reinstall the wire/spring.
I hope this information helps you resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Code dr keeps popping up even if the door is shut and the dryer will not turn on


It means that the door switch is making a bad connection. You should look around near the door switch for loose parts or wires. If everything seems tight, perhaps replace the door switch

Machine won't start


My friend got somebody in to fix it in the end. It actually did turn out to be a problem with the door switch. I don't think it was able to lock it's self properly even though the light was on. (Don't know the exact details though). Think they guy just played with the lock to sort it out rather than getting a new part. I noticed when I played with it that if you got the door open, pulled out the plug and switched it back on again it would make a clicking noise for a while as if it was trying to shut it's self if this is any help?
