Question about Thomson Washing Machines
My front loading washing machine is complaining that the door is not locked, even after I closed the door. The display panel keeps saying Lock the Door.

Its looks like a lid switch issue. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Good luck!

My machine just died. No codes, no nothing. I thought it had blew a fuse. But the outlet is fine. There is no power to the unit. There is a load in the machine and I can't get it out. Help

Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.
If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

Mine was doing the same thing. Upon closer investigation the drum seal was torn near the door locking mechanism, and when water got on the locking mechanism it shorted it out until it dryed. Then it would work again. You can check this by pulling the seal back on the locking side of the door to see if its torn.

i just went through the same thing.......you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds, this will unlock it.....so turn the machine on and press the two icons, dont worry about the beeping and flashing after 6 seconds the padlock symbol will go and you can use the machine as usual.....i wish they put that 'minor detail' in the manual...cheers!!

Hello Phyllis Emmett - Do you notice any error codes displayed on the control panel or lights blinking? If so and the panel displays "DR", the door may have a defective door lock switch. However, if panel displays "DDO" either the drawer is not closing, magnet may be missing or have a defective reed switch, which you will need to contact a professional to diagnose the unit.
