I opened it with a pair of needle nose plyers. You gotta press down on whats left of the handle and pull out on the door. It's a little tricky, but that will open it.

Try: Program the select knob at 6 o'clock position. Speed at 9 o'clock. Press pre-wash and the power button together for 4 to 5 seconds. Hopefully it will unlock.

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open

Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

Door of my LG washing machine(front load) is not opeining, Pls advise how to open it, Thanks

If there is water in the machine above a certain level, it will not allow the door to be opened.
To open the door, Open the hatch to the drain pump at the lower left front of the washing machine. If there is water in the machine and you can't put machine in drain, then you can detach the drain hose and drain the water into a container.
make sure that power is disconnected.
With the hatch open, remove the screws holding the red plastic handle in place. Pull the handle and the door will open. Put the handle back into its slot and put screws back in place.

How do you take the filter out to clean it? Front Loader Washing Machine LG

I assume you mean the filter behind the little door down the bottom. You open the door and unscrew the cover to remove the filter. if it won't come then it must be jammed. Try using a pliers to carefully work away at it . It probably has coins etc jammed inside. I have broken these by trying to remove them, but it has to come so if this happens it doesn't cost much for a new one good luck

Door Stuck after wash completed

You will have remove top cover, and release door latch from inside the front, with a screw driver pushing against the latch to open door.
It does mean that you probably have a faulty door lock, or broken door handle.

My washing machine door wont open

Sorry for VERY late solution. I have an LG front loader machine and it has just broken. While surfing the internet, I found your blog. LG front loaders have a weak door handle, that breaks after a few years of operation. All the LG models seem to be the same. Replacement door handles are relatively inexpensive and readily available.To open your STUCK door, I would use a thin butter knife....slide the butter knife between the door and the frame of the machine until you hit the metal latch. Push the latch towards the centre of the machine and open the door.In the interim until you can get it fixed, this workaround method will work, enabling you to continue washing.Hopefully LG will make future models door handles out of cast, or something stronger!
