Lock on washer


On some door lock mechanisms there's a manual release tab either above or below the lock assembly. Old Maytag Neptunes had a cord near the dispenser Simply pull the tab and the door unlocks

Door won't unlock and the washer will not start to fill.


Check and see if the door is jammed or there is fault in the lock.
Click this link for tips to reset the lock: Door lock
Check the continuity of the door switch and see if the harness connects to the control board to trigger the start cycle when the door is closed.

My washer is locked won't open


Will Not Unlock
• Press off. The motor control is not responding if it
takes 4 minutes to unlock. The motor control is
either bad or disconnected.
• Unplug and reconnect power cord. Wait 20 seconds
for machine to unlock.
• Check lid locked switch circuit. Circuit should be
closed at machine control.
• Check for loose electrical connections at lid lock and
at machine control board.
• Push lid closed to make sure nothing from inside is
pressing against it which may keep it from unlocking.
• If necessary, remove clothes by disconnecting power

to washer, and open top cover with a putty knife.Here is the part to order.

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

Control locked light is on on my whirlpool duet front load dryer and it won't do anything


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Thanks

Machine made popping noise when started, now will not add water or do anything, and door keeps locking and won't unlock.


It sounds like you got a short circuit somewhere, first thing to do is check the circuit breaker to see if its tripped. If it did, reset it and try again, if it didn't then something shorted inside the machine and you should have a good understanding of electricity if you want to find it yourself, also you need a multimeter.

Replaced motor,now won`t spin


Something is locked in the transmission--can you turn the inner tub manually? Also, try to turn the driven pulley (the motor and belt driven). The problem could be anything from a seized bearing to a broken gear. Don't keep trying the motor while things are locked up, you could burn it out.
