Unplug the the machine for a couple of minutes. This should unlock the door. If not, you should remove the lower panel under the door. Simply unsrews 3 hex nuts. Pull the door tab (latch) from underneath. Is there any code error displaying on your LED?

The door is locked and will not open, please advise


Hello.

The most typical reason the door will not unlock is because not all the water has drained due to the filter on the pump being clogged. This tip i wrote will help ya to open the washer and check the pump filter to see if its clogged.

Washer is stuck on spin and the door wont open. It is locked.


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Front door is locked and I can't get it open


Hello shoya_garris,

There is a manual release tab you can use to open the door. Make sure you unplug it first. Remove the bottom front service panel. Carefully reach up and pull the manual release tab on the bottom of the door lock assembly until you hear it click. Wear some gloves there can be sharp edges on the inside of the machine panels. Hope this helps.

Thanks,
