Question about Amana Front Load Washing Machine Washer Soap Dispenser Nfw7200tw

Open Question

Amana NFW7200TW front loading washer door not latching. Possible that latch is locked shut. How to open latch? repair?

Looks like a black (plastic?) latch will not open in lock housing. Door will not fully close (so washer will not operate). I have manually pressed the door sensor so that the washer will start with the door open. When doing so lock will "click" and then when I stop the cycle it will "click" open. Both sounds normal, but there is no visible movement and door will still not latch.

    This is with the wash machine door... not the soap dispenser. Not sure how that switched.

SOURCE: amana front load washer door locked with door open

To get the front off. (All screws look to be #2 Phillips Screws)
1. You have to unscrew (2) phillips screws from the back that holds the top on.
2. Slide the top off. (slide towards the back)
3. Then where the control panel is there is about 4-6 screws holding that plastic piece on, take those out this will allow you to pull the control panel up and out of the way.
4. At this point you can unscrew the 4-6 screws in the door area that holds the front of the washer on, once you unscrew those screws there is a tab that you have to lift the front over to pull the front off. This will allow you access to the locking mechanism.
5. There are only 2 screws holding te locking mechanism on.

NFW7200TW hums and does not turn or fill with water


if it doesn't fill the water valve will hum,first thing is to see if it's a problem with the house water valve or the washer valve,shut off the water supply,reomve the water hoses from the back of washer,mark the hoses so they go back on the same way,stick the hoses into the washer or a bucket and turn the water on,if water comes out of hoses then you know the problem is just the washer,check the valve,look at the screens where the hoses connect to the valve,usually sediment gets in there and the valve on the washer has to be replaced,on some the screens can be removed and cleaned,also you say you have trouble with the lock,what's humming is it the lock or the valve,if you turn it to drain and spin will it run?you could have a bad door switch,if door doesn't latch washer won't run but most likely bad water valve

Ge front loading washer door won't unlock


Some machines do this when the power is cut, there should be what looks like a screw heat on the front of the handle which will allow you to unlock the door and open it. If there is still water inside you will need to empty the machine first. There is usually a hatch at the bottom of the unit, open this hatch and you will find a cap to unscrew, unscrewing this cap will empty the contents of the machine onto your floor so be prepared!!!!!
