SOURCE: samsung silvercare washer stopped working, won't unlock

here is the most common cause for this problem, according to the Samsung repair guy that was here to fix mine today.
On these washing machines it is possible for some debris (in my case it was a small screw from my packet) to make its way passed the drum and into the pump. Once this happens then the impeller of the pump becomes restricted or completely blocked which will result in the above mentione symptoms.
On some machines the pump is on the front, on others at the rear of the machine. In my case it was at the rear, removing the rear panel will allow easy access to it. Have a bucket ready, when the hose is removed from the pump the water will be draining from the machine. 3 bolts and a hose clamp on the inlet and another on the outlet hose. Disconnect the electrical plug from the pump and you can remove it from the machine for cleaning. A very easy job, requiring little skills and not much in terms of tools. (make sure machine is UNPLUGGED from AC outlet)
Remove obstruction(s) from pump and reinstall in reverse order of disassembly. The guy says these pumps are really tough so if you hear it buzzing, trying to go while it's jammed it's a good sign it will work. If not, replacement will be necessary.
Cost me $140. Could have been worse I suppose. Advise: Empty pockets BEFORE washing clothes...

The machine has to reset to bringg tthe lock to release, check the link to the lock settings to make the program complete the cycle and release the lock. Do not force it as you end up damaging.

SOURCE: door won't close/lock

Just had the same issue. The latch, which rotates up and forward, is spring-loaded towards the rear. If 'tripped' to closed position, it cannot rotate back down until it's carrier/hinge slides slightly forward. I bent a sturdy wire into a long 'U', then bent both ends down (~3/8in) and slightly outward to hook over the latch-hinges and pull both sides gently (its plastic) forward, while rotating the latch downward with a small screwdriver. be careful to keep what appears to be a brown plastic button raised, if it pops down from above the latch. Yes, having 4 hands would help, but the 'U' wire can pull from behind the two outer edges with one finger. Once the latch rotates down, release tension on the 'U' wire and extricate it - problem solved.

SOURCE: How to manually unlock my

Hi

I think you have put a heavy load and the door is being pushed out resulting it from unlocking. Water level is too high. Drain the excess water manually by opening the drain hose holder. When display show LO then turn the washer off and on and perform a quick test mode. Check PCB and Door Lock Switch with a multi meter to test its continuity and output voltage of Door Lock Coil. If it reads 120V, change Door Lock Switch, and if not, change PCB. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

ED is a door not closed error code. The lock may be on and the machine will need to be reset. To do this either leave the machine unplugged for 24 hours or see if there is a reset option on the machine. If you need an owners manual, I can probably locate one for you .

Door sign flashing and keeps clicking - Hotpoint Aquarius WMF720


It seems that the door cannot be locked.
Check that the door closes correctly and you hear the click when it closes. If this is ok and you cannot start any cycle but continue hear clicking, then you have a problem with the door lock latch and needs to be replaced. Here is a video of how you can do it after you buy the spare part, according to the model and serial number of your appliance. The video is for a different brand of washer but don't worry the process is exactly the same!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with the 'door closed' sensor, unfortunately requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

A string from one of the clothes got stuck in the lock mechanism and the door won't unlock


If the door fails to unlock after 11 attempts, you will see the "LO" code. If this was caused by foreign matter infiltrating the latch area try this. Open the dispenser lid and look for a plastic cord tucked away towards the front. It's the same as "weed whacker" cord. Grasp this cord firmly and pull it from right to left (away from the latch). This is the emergency cord to open the door after a latch failure. remove any debris that would hamper the operation of the latch assembly. Close the door and try going into a spin cycle to check the door lock operation.
