Pull the front panel off, look for a plastic piece , it has a filter that you need to pull out. turn it to the left pull it out and clean it. This solved the problem for me. had the same issues.

SOURCE: Door won't open on Samsung washer

This has happened to me twice. Both times I found the drain pump seized up with
1st time) The right rim from a pair of reading glasses
2nd time) A plastic toothpick
Both times the object was in the discharge port of the pump. You can see this by lifting the check valve with the pump removed. Removing the pump is simple. Unplug the washer. You have to remove the drain line from where its attached to the rear of the machine (one screw) to remove the rear access panel which slides into upper and lower slots. You will see the pump with an inlet and discharge line attached. The lines have simple squeeze clamps. When you remove the lines, you will drain the wash basin so have towels and a squeegie handy. Remove both lines and wait until the basin drains. When it stops draining remove the pumps electrical connector by squeezing the release catch on it while pulling it. The connector can only go on one way. Remove the 3 hold-down bolts on the pump baseplate. Remove the pump and lift open the discharge check valve and you'll find something there I guarantee it. Remove with needle nose pliers and re-assemble in reverse order.
This is actually a good design because the computer protects the pump by sensing a higher than normal current draw when foreign debris gets jammed in it. It will trigger the ND (No Drain) code and sometimes lock the door. Always check this first before you call the expensive repair man. If its not a jammed pump it will most likely be the control panel/processor. Good luck and always clean out pockets before loading the washer to prevent this,

Calypso washer runs fine until 7 minutes, then stays stuck on 7 minutes until it finally gets a LD or Long Drain error.


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions and check the pump. It isn't just whether the water drained, but how quickly it drained as well. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure that nothing is clogging the pump like that occasional stray sock, etc., and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If there are any broken/missing blades or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Kenmore washer model 82980120, stopped working


Check the sound of a CLICK when you close the lid door. If you do not here it then it's your LIMIT SWITCH that is broken. I had a similar problem and to get my water out quickly I removed the cover that wraps the washer and removed the limit switch and joined the two wires together so that the machine thinks the lid it closed. It is not a safe thing to do but it gives you time to go buy a new one in the mean time you can continue to do your washing. Just remember that when you open the lid door your washer will still SPIN on it's RINSE and DRAIN CYCLE. be very careful if you have KIDS. I hope this will solve your problem.

Water won't spin out of clothes


You have a "drain waterpump fault" To fix this the pump must be dis-assembled and, the obstruction blocking the pump impeller must be removed. First obtain a radiator hose pinch-off plier and, a hoseclamp plier from an autoparts store; place the hose plier on the pump hose just below the tub and/or, just above the pump. squeeze the plier until it locks closed; this will pervent the water in the tub from draining when you remove the pump cover. using a screwdriver open the pump and, remove the obstruction in the pump: be sure to cover the floor under the pump, with rags to catch any water still left in the pump.

Door stuck Locked Control Locked light on


Try unplugging the washer for at 30 minutes to reset the computer, first. If this proves unsuccessful, you can retrieve you clothes by using the manual release. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

Once you retrieve your clothes, try running diagnostics on it. You can envoke the diagnostic sequence by selecting DRAIN/SPIN, NO/SPIN and then pressing any button under OPTIONS 4 times (must be the same button). The display should go to "C00" as the washer begins a sequence of tests that checks the fill functions, door lock, dispenser functions, motor speed, spin and drain. Allow the washer to run through the entire sequence and shut off. If anything is wrong an error code should be generated. Hopefully, all you had was a minor glitch. Let me know how things turn out. I hope this helps you.
