Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The indications are that the door lock is not working or physically broken/misaligned. Alternatively there is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor probably requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: Samsung WF7708N6W1 will not finish cycle -just

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(I've pre-typed the following 'cos I cannot type fast!)

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: my washing machine says door opened even i closed the door it' always says opened

Sounds like a sticky or broken lid switch. Over time, detergent and dirt can settle in and around the switch, causing it to stick or disabling it altogether. Try pushing the switch in manually to see if the door open warning goes out.

SOURCE: Sampsung wf7708n6w1 door won't open!

Your door switch/lock is broken, you need to unplug the machine and remove the top, you can then reach down (tight space) and using a small screwdriver you can pry around the switch and get the door to open, you need to get a replacement door switch for the machine.

Leaning the machine back can make it easier to access the switch.

for a washing machine that includes the steps of determining whether or not there is an error in
an automatic door opening or closing operation carried out in response to a command to open or
close the washing machine's door; determining if the erroneous operation has been
repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the door; and when erroneous operation has repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the door.
1. A method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus for a washing machine door, the method comprising the steps of: determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation which operation is carried out in response to a command to open or close the washing machine door;
determining if the erroneous operation is repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the washing machine door; and
in the event that the erroneous operation is repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the washing machine door.


2. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: returning the door to the washing machine to an original position in the event that the error occurs.


3. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the step of determining if there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation is performed on the basis of whether or not an inversion occurs in an open/closed state of the door within a prescribed period of time after an automatic door opening or closing operation is initiated.

4. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: clearing the number of errors in the case where the door of the washing machine has been opened or closed manually at the time of occurrence of the errors.


5. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein said predetermined number is 3.

6. A method for controlling the operation of an automatic door mechanism in a washing machine, said method comprising the steps of: sensing a command to automatically open or close a washing machine door;
sensing whether a failure occurs in opening or closing the door in response to the command to automatically open or close the door;
incrementing a counter indicating the failure;
determining whether the counter is equal to a predetermined number; and
failing to engage the automatic door mechanism in response to a subsequent a command to automatically open or close the door if the counter exceeds the predetermined number.


7. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: returning the door to an original position if a failure is detected.


8. The method claimed in claim 6, wherein failure is indicated by a lack of a transition between a door open state and a door closed state within a predetermined time period following entry of the command to automatically open or close the door.

9. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: clearing the counter if the door is opened or closed manually following a failure indication.

heres the solution from washing machine manuals, dont know why fuses and powerre included in this...
odor in washer
• Water supply taps are not
open fully.
• Water line hoses are kinked,
pinched, or bent.
• Water inlet filters are clogged.
• Water pressure to tap or
house is too low.

section.
• Check another faucet in the house to make sure that
household water pressure is adequate.
• Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a
grounded, 3-prong, 120-VAC, 60-Hz. outlet.

under the door seal frequently.
• Clean around door seal/glass to prevent odor or mildew:
1. wipe dry the door seal/glass and the door opening area
