SOURCE: washer is stuck on spin and the door wont open. It is locked.

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

SOURCE: my front load kenmore washer is stuck on control

Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with washer however; your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Door will not open and oven will not shut off


The door latch will open after the shut down, therefore go to the home circuit breakers and shut off the power to the oven. Wait a few minutes and try to open the door. If still locked, reset the power to the on position and see if the oven rest and shut down properly and the door lock released.

Possible that the door lock is jammed, it can also be due to jamming of the door switch or the plastic lock being stuck on.

Had to loosen the lock -- loose enough that the door opened. Only thing that worked. Of course then door wouldn't shut! Cut off the lock and will have to replace.

Door won't open


the lock switch is probably stuck. make sure machine is off but plugged in still. Push in on the door while gently giving a couple of thumps around the lock area and the lock will probably "click" open.
