Pulling the door open during the wash cycle meant that it was pulled open with the latch in the locked position. The door cannot be opened in this manner while it is operating. If the door now does not latch, it has probably been damaged and needs to be replaced. The following link explains how to replace the door latch:

A replacement latch can be purchased on line at appliancepartpros.com. Just type in your model number and look under Section 5, for item number 7. The door latch is listed as part number AP3837611.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Thanks for Trying? You never mentioned anything about replacing the latch in your question. Would have been nice to have this information before I researched all that information for you. Did you check the latch on the door itself, or the door latch mechanism inside the washer? Did you very the wiring was correct when you reconnected all the electrical connections? Are you receiving any fault codes?

WASHERS have many different weight balancers but sounds like u need to take body off and have look at the counter weights set up while running machine, just jumper the door switch to keep a closed line. and then agin sometimes its as simple as making sure ur washer is leveled on ur floor, check ur leg adjusters as they do get funny at times..

My Whirlpool Duet washer was out of balance and almost fell over during the spin cycle. The washer was shaking and the front door came open during the spin cycle. Now the front door will not latch and stay...


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.

My washer is out of balance when spinning.


Hi,
Your problem is probably much more than the washer being out of balance. The front load washers have shock absorbers that hold them from moving all over the place. These have a habit of breaking. Then the drum hammers and sounds like things are flying apart. Pull the bottom front off and check the shocks. Typically the rings where the pins go throuhg are where they will break. Sometimes at first they look okay and you have to grab them and move them to see that they are broken.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Whirlpool duet washer door is open. I can't close it because the latch is stuck in the "locked" position.


The first thing to try is to hold the cancel button for 15 seconds. The more labor intensive solution is this: Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.
