SOURCE: FRONT LOADER DOOR LOCK WONT OPEN OR JAMMED

On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

SOURCE: Door locked on compact Whirlpool front-load washer

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

Turn the power off and leave for 5-10 minutes then turn on. This should release the door lock the problem could be the pump drain filter is blocked clean this and it should resolve future problems.

SOURCE: My LG WD-8023 Fb front loader has the door locked

look down the very bottom of the machine you should see a couple screws on the bottom unscrew these and remve the lower panel you may have one screw also in the clean out you will be looking for a type of pull cord that is attached to the door pull the cord and the door will open. if the delay lock is not releasing then you would have to replace the door lock assembly in the unit if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

My bosch nexxt 100 series washer will not start. The spin, wash and finish indicator lights flash simultaneously when try to start.


Make sure dial is switched to 'off'. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. If if doesn't work, do it again.

To get the clothes out if you are having trouble, open door manually. Near the bottom of this cover is a small hole. Insert a piece of wire into this hole, and push in gently. While pushing, turn the cover clockwise, it will came off. The door release is a narrow white plastic strip hanging down on the right; Pull down on this strip while pushing in on the door, the door lock will release.

Click helped if helped.

Can't open the door of my front loader. Have done a load of washing now can't get door open, have tried to do spin cycle a few times, have switched the power off, still no luck?


if you have your manual it will tell you how to manually open the door,on most you remove the bottom panel.reach up new the door switch and you'll feel a piece of plastic that's on the bottom of the switch on a pull release for the door.next time send the model number and brand name so whoever helps you can answer you better.

I have a Whirlpool washing machine, front loader, AWM 323. I have just finished washing a load but cannot open the door!


If your machine is a Duet model or it's relative, first unplug the machine then remove the lower valance under the door (three screws on the botttom of the machine) reach up by the door lock and you'll find a plastic tab hanging down, that's the manual release for the door lock. Wile you have the valance off look inside the machine and pull out the technician sheets that are stuck on the inside wall of the machine, you may need them later.

Finished, wash and spin lights flashing. Door


I just had this problem! To get the clothes out, open door manually (follow answers on other threads here about opening toe panel and gently pulling down on door release). But as it turned out, I didn't need to remove the clothes, and now my washer is working again.

A local repairman gave me this advice over the phone. Make sure dial is switched to off. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. The second time I tried this, my washer worked afterwards. I've done several loads today with no problem.

Front door won't open at end of cycle


There is a safety switch on the door on front loaders which acts as a time lock. You have to wait a few minutes for it to release, if it does not open after about 5 mnutes the safety latch is faulty.
