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

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.

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.

Whirlpool washine machine #AWM 3082 - door wont open


Try to unplug the unit for five minutes, then plug back in. Try to start a load, as soon as the door locks agian, hit cancel. That will sometimes let you get back in. Im not sure if this is a top loader or front loader, but there is a way (if its a front loader) to remove the bottom front kick plate, then you have to reach up the inside to the door latch assm, on the bottom of that is a small round handle, pull it straight down, and the door will unlock. If its a top loader (i.e. Cabrio, Oasis, Etc), you can open the top only by unclipping the top from the base. You can do this by putting a putty knife in between the top and cabinet, then finding the clips, pushing them in and lfting, you can get your stuff out that way.
