I queryed another site; justanswer.com with technician Larry, who provided the solution. Replace the door latch assenbly part # WH10X1006 $146.99 from GE. A local parts house had the identical under a Whirlpool # WP8182634 for 59.46. Install the new assemble and all is well.

Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

GFWH1200DWW GE front load washer won't unlock red lock showing


From an article I found online:

See if manually opening the door will reset everything. Unplug the washer and remove the lower front panel like you're going to clean out the drain catch. Once you remove this panel you can reach up behind the upper front panel and pull down on the small plastic pull tab attached to the bottom of the door lock assembly. This will manually unlock the door so you can open the door.

Now once you have the door open, plug the washer back in and see if you can start another cycle.

My Samsung VRT washer was working fine. The cycle appears to be finished but the door remains locked. I get no response from any of the buttons. You would think that the washer wasn't getting any...


I don't know if I have the same model SAMSUNG front loader, but I have a similar problem. The door has decided to stay locked at the end of the cycle. I can turn it off and on and even send it through another cycle, but at the end of the washing, it drains, goes to END but does not go the extra step of unlocking, like it usually would about 1min after ending the cycle.

My clothese have been through about 6 different cycles, hoping it will magically clikc open at the end. I assume they are very clean, but getting dizzy.

Any help out there?

My Maytag Epic Z washer stop in mid cycle then locked the door, we unlock the door via holding the cycle signal button down for 3 seconds, now we can open the door, close it, power up, start a cycle, but...


The low humming sound is from the pump. Remove the 3 screws on the bottom panel and remove it to check the pump filter. Here is a video for the "Duet Sport" washer. This washer is about the same. This video will show you the process and in this video the problem was similar to yours.

Making humming noise power not on door locked


turn off the unit.use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose this will remove all the water then you can turn it back on and should be able to open the door to get your clothes out.
after all thatis done you need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing blocking the pump.other likely problems are the door lock mechanism is bad or the main control board
