Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Duet Washer

Open Question

Door will not stay locked on ghw9200lw

Door initially locks and cycle begins. Then cycle stops and door will not open. If additional pressure is applied to door at locking point, washer will reengage cycle. Have found that if I use straps with a cinching mechanism around the washer, enough pressure is applied to door to complete cycle. Is the underlying problem mechanical or electronic? If so, what part(s) do I need to replace? Thanks.

SOURCE: Door lock stuck

If the mechanism is jammed, you might have to remove or loosen the entire front panel to reach back to the back side of the lock and work on it.

Whirlpool wfc7500vw when put into any cycle selection the door lock lights comes and stays on and the draining/unlock light flashes for a minute then the door unlocks once opened and closed the cycle...


When you first start a load, the machine does perform several self checks. One of them is the door lock test. It locks the door and checks a loop back signal from the lock. At this point, it usually tests the drain pump to make sure it cycles on and off. In my case, the Maytag unit we own actually unlocks the door and immediately locks it again right before the actual wash cycle begins. I suppose this is a double check because if the door indicates it is unlocked, the washer won't do anything (like fill up with water, or spin...anything that either floods the room and hurts somebody). The door switch should be the impetus to start the tests. If the switch is mounted to an adjustable bracket, or the bracket is loose, then maybe it is being pushed out of position when you close the door. The fact that you can open the door after it unlocks, re-close it and the machine works normally tells me there is adjustment that needs to be made. Either the the little lever or pin that actuates the switch is bent or broken, or the door needs to be adjusted on its hinges to get the pin aligned correctly. Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Kindest regards, Carl

Kenmore elite he5t front loading washer door locks, unlocks, then locks again before beginning cycle


This is aself test procedure on the door locking mechanism . You will also hear a click, the drum will make a partial turn,and the door will unlock berore locking again. Once the door has locked a second time the washer will begin tumbling and adding water. The sensing process will continue until the correct amount of water is added to the load.

Once the wash cycle begins, the washer door is locked and cannot open until complete cycle is done. Is this normal or is there a way to stop wash cycle and open the door?


If this is a front load washer, yes it's normal.
You wouldn't want your laundry and all the water falling out on the floor because the door didn't lock, would you ?

It starts cycle and stops after a few questions but when i open and close door it starts again and stops...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem appears to be with the door switch as initially it starts cycle and then the control senses open door so stops the unit completely. Take a hair dryer and blow some air on the door lock/switch assembly, if this won't help then replacing the door switch/lock assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Washer won't start, stopped at beginning of cycle and the door lock flashed. after about 5-6 flashes the display read: FL. Tryed to start again, unplugged it for a while several times. nothing happens....


FL:
Failed to lock.

Trigger:
Door lock monitor switch in door lock mechanism unable to communicate to control board the door is locked.

Action to be taken:
1.Check wire connections in harness leading from machine control board to door lock mechanism.
2.Check solenoid and door lock enable switch in door lock mechanism.
3.Replace responsible component.

If you need to open the door.
Maytag's Neptune washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
1) Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.

Whirlpool washer model ghw9200lw


Either your door lock or latch is broken.

Door lock part # WP8182634

Door latch (Striker) part # WP8181651

If it is latch striker you will see it broken and this part is in the door itself.

Door lock is in the frame of the washer.

Stops agitating when door is open


I thought that all front loading washing machines were supposed to stop when you tried to open the door.
And I'm as perplexed as "dauphine." How did you get it opened? Mine won't work at all if the lock/latch doesn't lock at the beginning of the cycle.
