    I had a similar problem. We got the door to unlock by tilting the machine back while it was on, and had to scoop the water out with a bucket. I still haven't fixed mine but go the stupid thing to unlock.

SOURCE: washer going through all cycles

hi - a bit puzzled here, the drum does not turn I'm assuming, the belt has to have come off or is broken.

Take 2 bolts rear corner only, under soap dispenser (4), remove the door & front panels, door lock screws above door to get to the inside & motor. Have a look if it has come off or boken.

It is a computer problem. My daughters machine did the same thing and the company came out and replaced the computer board and it fixed the problem.

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

Now in this case the failure of the motor drive or the agitator shaft could have resulted in total failure of the spin cycle. Now remove the panel and check manually the movement fo the motor and the main drive, if the shaft is struck up or if the motor bearings/bushes are worn out. It is important to check the voltage on the motor as the absence of the voltage means that the controller has some fault - possible failure of the drive after a heavy load of the malfunction.

For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link:

The washer was starting spin cycle. It stopped & started huming. The door won't unlock. It has water in it. unplugging hasn't changed anything.


If it has water in it it may not unlock the door, it depends on what type of door lock is fiited as it may be a pressure type. If you can get the outlet hose out and lower it below the level of the drum to drain the water that is in it then the door may open oncethe pressure is gone.

Washer Flashing Error Code ND; door won't open after turning washer off


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. ,

The usually reason the door remains locked once the cycle is over is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so not all the water could drain out...the door lock is tied into the pump and until the pump tells the control board that the wate r is out the door will not unlock. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer to clean the filter on the pump.

Hi

It seems that something is clogged in the drain pump assembly and you have to clean it to solve this issue. After cleaning if the issue returns then test the door lock assembly, if bad it should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

A string from one of the clothes got stuck in the lock mechanism and the door won't unlock


If the door fails to unlock after 11 attempts, you will see the "LO" code. If this was caused by foreign matter infiltrating the latch area try this. Open the dispenser lid and look for a plastic cord tucked away towards the front. It's the same as "weed whacker" cord. Grasp this cord firmly and pull it from right to left (away from the latch). This is the emergency cord to open the door after a latch failure. remove any debris that would hamper the operation of the latch assembly. Close the door and try going into a spin cycle to check the door lock operation.
