SOURCE: GE washer: door won't unlock

We had the same problem and there is a wiring harness right at the door and I guess over time closing the door or the vibration from the spin cycle worked it loose. It would click and click like it was trying to lock but then the cycle would not start and it would just humm like it was trying to start the water. Make sure before you start to unplug the washer. The harness plug is on the side of the drum right at the door. If you take the bottom panel off and take the bottom two screws out and pull the panel out as much as you can you can see it there on the side. Just plug it back in and you are good to go.

SOURCE: ge front loading washer door won't unlock

I had the same problem. I didn't want to spend the money or go to the trouble of replacing the whole latch assembly with the GE latch repair kit.
I found that the plastic latch piece screwed to the door had broken and one of the two latch "fingers" was stuck in one of the latch openings on the washer. I fixed the problem by removing the broken part from the washer and drilling and countersinking very small holes (1/16" I think) in the plastic latch piece on either side of the "latch finger". I then put the broken off piece back in place and drillled pilot holes for #4 sheet metal screws in the door where the latch is located. The door liner is plastic and I think I used a 1/32 inch drill bit. I reattached the broken latch piece with two 1/2 inch stainles steel #4 flat head phillips screws from Home Depot. The screws hold the broken latch piece in place as orinilally positioned.
The repair is working fine and the door now latches like it did before the latch part broke

I have a GE Model WSM2700 WSM2780 Spacemaker Laundry stacked washer/dryer combination which is about 8 years old. It worked perfectly until the dryer no longer would turn on. I opened up the unit and...


i had something similar, did the cleaning and double checked to make sure all the wiring was hooked up and not frayed. i then "jiggled" (technical term) the dryer door button and some sand came out. it has been working ever since.

My control panel has locked and I can't unlock it.


If this is a GE Spacemaker model, you can lock or unlock the controls of the oven by pressing and holding the CLEAR/OFF button for 3 to 5 seconds. If this is not a GE Spacemaker, please post back with your correct MODEL NUMBER. I hope this information helps you.

GE spacemaker dryer won't start


Have you tried keepin the dryer door open, depressing the safety switch which enables the dryer to work when it is closed, and then turn on the dryer to see if it turns at all? Sometimes its the smallest things that cause these problems. That switch that gets pressed when the door closes, sometimes malfunctions. Sometimes the door of the dryer gets out of whack and doesnt really make contact with the switch enough to trigger the flow of electricity.
