Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Door latch is in "LOCKED" position however the door is open!

The door to my unit is very much "open" and the "locked door light" is NOT ON, however the latch that locks the door in place during wash cycle is in the down or locked position. Have tried pressing the pause/stop button for several seconds and no luck, and have even unplugged the unit for 3 hours, and then when I plugged it back in ... no change ... so the problem is still that with it being in the LOCKED down position (the latch) it won't allow you to close the door securely!!! HELP!!!

Only thing I could say to you is if you remove the wire with the spring that holde the grey rubber bellows to the washer, you can remove the door lok switch, by first removing the screws that hold it to the washer. Once removed go to your apliance parts store and replace the door latch. Install in the reverse and your washer should work properly.

Es posible q tengas unproblema con el sensor de apertura de la puerta, tal vez este pegado o le cayera h2o, por eso el microcontrolador interpreta q la puerta sigue abierta y por eso no realiza la rutina de lavado, debes buscar el plano, determinar la ubicacion del sensor y verificar su estado.

It is possible that you have a problem with the door?s sensor, maybe it?s turned off or maybe some water fell on it. This is the reason why the micro controller interpret that the door is still open, and that?s why the washing procedure does not start. You have to find the manual and determine where is the location of the sensor and then see in what state it is (Turned off, wet, or damaged)

Grounding in a 120vac environment usually will cause a big spark and pop the circuit breaker. There is a possibility the latch is like a car door latch. If it somehow gets moved to the shut or latched position when the car door is open, it will never close and latch . The latch must be returned to it's normal door open position so that when closed it will latch securely.
Your machine's latch may be blocked by something acting like the car door latch described above. It may be the switch has broken and is the "culprit".

Oven latch will not open


Sometimes the latch arm is bent causing the latch release not to clear the hook on the door. If the arm goes under the front it is probably bent. Carefully pull the arm back toward the locked position and try to bend it back a small amount and see if the door will open after moving the arm back to the open position. If that fails sometimes you can insert a bent coat hanger between the door and the latch hook and move the latch enough to unlock the door. I hope this helps

Frigidaire door lock won't reset


Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

F5E1 or FSE1 error code DOOR LOCKED LATCH NOT OPERATING


On this double oven, each door has it's own latch mechanism that consists of a motor, a position switch, and the door switch used to activate the cavity lights. Because the error indicated a latch failure (and the bottom door was locked), Start by cycling the power to the unit. Each time the power is removed and then applied to these ovens, both latches will lock then unlock the doors to ensure they are in the home open position. By doing so, you might be able to get the bottom oven door opened allowing me access to the latch assembly. With the latch removed, I try to begin a clean cycle so you could watch the motor operate and you will probably find that it will start to turn, but never would rotate enough to lock the door. Since the position switch was not actuated at the end of the motor operation, the F5 E1 error was again displayed. Replace the motor assembly

Ok. Open the door and find the oven light switch(es) (some models had two switches). Press the switch(es) in and see if the latch goes back to the home position. If not enlist a volunteer to turn on the self clean cycle while you are holding the switch(es) in. Just after the self clean starts have them hit cancel and wait until the lock comes back to it's "home" or unlocked position.
Good luck!!
