Try and reset the power to the washer and check after 10 minutes if washer is displaying any error code on the display. If no error codes then check the wiring harness by opening the top panel of the washer. Also verify there is water entering the Hot and Cold Valves, use a multimeter to check the continuity of the inlet valves. Then check the Door Switch for proper operation, the door must be locked:
1. Begin with the machine OFF. Using the Program Selector, select any cycle.
2. Next, press the ON/OFF button "in" to the ON position. You'll hear the door lock engage.
3. Now, unplug the washer-dryer from the wall outlet and check for continuity at the following points.
NOTE: Because the washer-dryer will automatically unlock, the reading must be taken within 1-minute after the washer-dryer is unplugged.
Test Points Reading
Unlocked Door-- 1 to 2 -- INFINITY (OL)
Locked Door -- 1 to 2 -- 0 ohms
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Washer/dryer has completed two cycles and the door won't open

The door lock mechanism is stuck. You will need to get access to the back of the machine in order to undo the screws holding the top of the machine on. Make sure the machine is unplugged from the pains supply, there are wires attached to the switch and they may be live. Remove the top of the machine and reach down inside to where lock is (near door handle on front), push on the back of the lock/switch and it should release. If the problem re-occurs then the lock/switch will need to be replaced.

Constant clicking of door lock

Suggestion: Try a little WD40 spray on the door, not on the machine. Close and open 2 or 3 times while plug is off the wall mains.

Door lock not engaging on our spledide XC 2100

I'm Sorry to post a complete "Gerry Rig" solution to the problem: I inserted a plastic clip in the door lock to fool the machine that the door was locked; removed the clip then secured the door with a tension rod. It ran its full cycle without a leak. I think the plastic door mechanics was inadequately engineered. Our Machine is less than 6 months old?- Im on the road & have to make things work on the fly. Warning my next fix might include Duct Tape Good Luck Everyone Kevin_ByDesign

Door Stuck after wash completed

You will have remove top cover, and release door latch from inside the front, with a screw driver pushing against the latch to open door.
It does mean that you probably have a faulty door lock, or broken door handle.
Please rate my fixya solution.
