I would recommend getting the service manual for your model as some models have clutches that control spin and others have belts. The service manual would be the best route if you are planning on repairing this yourself. If you would like the service manual let me know and I will post a link to where you can get one emailed to you.

The latch may be broken.
Here are the instructions to manually unlock...

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" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Door won't unlock whirlpool wFs1073dd front loader


If it has water in the the machine, it has a safety feature that will not allow the door to unlock. There is a manual release but you have to take the bottom kick plate off. Unplug the washer. Then reach up on the right side of the washer and you will feel a plastic lever about the size and shape of a nickel pull down on this lever to release the door. If it full of water i would clean the pump first to get rid of the water. you can clean the pump by taking off the kick plate and you will see a pump with a lid with a handle on it. you can unscrew this and it will have a trap attached to the back of the lid. pull the trap out and clean any debris out then screw it back in. make sure to have buckets and towels handy once you unscrew the lid any water in the machine will fly out at you. the easiest way to avoid this is to clamp the hoses that go to the pump.

I want to open the door mid cycle and restart it. Instead when I push pause the door remains locked and I can't insert another item without draining the water and starting over.


Yes that is how that style washer works since its very possible if opening the door when water is in the tub that it would spill out when opening the door when water in the tub..all front loaders work ina similar manner where when water is in the tub the door wont unlock

I cant get the front loader door unlocked?


For some reason, your door lock isn't unlocking properly. You can manually override it, but this won't fix the root problem. Here's how...

1. Unplug the machine
2. Remove the 3 screws from the back edge of the top and pull it off rearward
3. Using a flashlight, look down along the RH inside of the machine (facing the machine). About half way down, you'll see the door lock mechanism which has a manual pull that will unlock it. Pull up on this to unlock the door.
4. You could take your chances and put the machine back together, plug it in and see if the lock acts up again. If it does, you'll have to replace the door lock, if not- it's your lucky day.

Good luck.

Light on reads control panel locked - how do I unlock it?


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
