SOURCE: Door will not unlock

It sound like a lid switch problem .A defective lid switch could prevent you to open the door physically and as well will not move to the unlock light.The switch located inside the machine near the door frame. You should open the top panel (open 2 screws and then slide it out) then you will have an access to it . You can test it by multi-meter (it is an on/off switch). In case of a deffective switch, it should be replaced. Be aware that you should remove machine's power cable before starting your test !!!! Good luck !!!

SOURCE: Door can't be opened

Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure First disconnect the machine power cable from the wall socket. You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit.

SOURCE: MAYTAG NEPTUNE DOOR LOCKED WILL NOT OPEN!

The comment posted 14 may 2009 it what helped me. DO NOT PRY OPEN the door. Find the release cord inside the soap dispenser,,,you may have to remove the 4 screws and lift it from the washer like i did. I had to lean into the door and pull the cord to release the lock. It was not a system error. The washer was over loaded and although the door was closed and locked...the load pushed the door enough to indicate that it was open and would not wash. After opening the door, rearranging the load and removing some, the door closed and latched locked and was able to continue with the wash. DO NOT PRY OPEN,,,use the cord release first,,,this worked for me.

Door wont open


Late answer, but --- unplug the machine, wait for the door switch to cool. Not more than four or five minutes, it should open.

The door switch should be replaced, it's easy to do.

Broke handle off of siemens TOP WD1200 champion, the settings are all in chinese and my clothes are locked inside. help?


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
If you have used force you have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.
Click if helped.

Can't open the door


Have you tried to open it when turned off at power. Wait 5 secs after turning off door release should open. If this does not work, put on a wash cycle, start machine then turn off the cycle and switch machine off. Door should open. Failing this I would say door lock mechanism is faulty.

I load the clothes into the washing machine, I turn it on select cycle and the door locks and will NOT unlock. The door will however unlock after the cycle is finished.


Not sure if you're unable to open the door AFTER you stop the cycle. That may be normal operation as a safety measure (won't open until after your cycle has completed). However, if your model DOES allow for opening the door during cycle operations then your electronic door lock may be defective.

Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open


Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

Door won't open


Check your instruction manual to see if there is a childlock feature that has been activated.
Is there water in the machine or has it completely rinsed out?
If you switch the power off and wait a couple of minutes, can you then open the door with the power still off?

These machines do not release the door immediately after wash cycle is complete. After final spin cycle wait until you hear a click sound.The door will then be able to be opened. This takes uproximately three minutes.

"CD" ERROR ON LG WM-3677HW Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer


CD means cool down, press the pause start button, the door lock will open. It is an anti crease cycle. It mentions it in the owners manual, but it is hidden deep in the drying section.

Samsung Washer WT1101cw will not drain. Originally had a OE error. Running "Spin" or "Rinse Spin" cycles but pump cycles on for less than 1 second and goes into spin with water in it. _Laundry loaded with a OE error and water not draining. _I manually drained the system, took apart the drain and did not find a clog or anything to prevent the motor from turning. _Pump motor reads continuity. _Ran multiple SPIN cycles and then a RINSE and SPIN cycle and actually had the pump run for a few seconds and even for a minute or so one time but could not repeat and hasn't since. _checked the Pressure Switch and see continuity between common and outside contact. Tried to increase pressure by blowing into the tube using a straw on the end of tube but saw no change. Not sure how the pressure is created inside the bowl. _There was no overfill condition originally and I have not tried to run a normal cycle because the washer is in an upstairs location and draining is difficult and messy. ___I believe that something is preventing the voltage from being sent to the pump motor but I have am not sure what logic conditions need to be satisfied for this to happen.I keep looking at the pressure switch because the drum will perform a load sense and then go into a spin cycle with water in it which sloshes around. Questions: --Shouldn't the drain pump normally be running prior to the spin? --what causes the change in the pressure switch? Does the switch only change at a "full" level? Please only answer if you have a clear understanding of the system. I am trying to avoid excessive expense in this repair and swapping parts unnecessarily. I am beginning to think that it is the control board and do not want to spend hundreds of dollars if it is not. Thanks.
