Ome washing machines have a cord fixed behind the filter flap door that will open the door if pulled. Is the machine full of water, if so disconect the waste pipe and drain the water into a bucket, this may let the door open if switched back on.

Last resort use a thin flat bladed screwdriver, a blunt ended one of possible to get round the seal by the lock, you may be able to release the door

Washer. door lock wont lock. I hear a click click, like it's locked, but the indicator lock light is not on, then a couple seconds later I hear another click click like it's unlocking and then...


the actual door lock switch inside the wall of your washer where the door clips in has most likely burnt out or a piece has broken out of it i have found the only way to fix this problem is to replace the door lock switch

I would say that the rubber may have gone into the system, and is probably clogging up the water outlet hose, and or the Pump. This is a bit of a "Fix' it will require the taking off of the motor and Hoses, connected to see where that bit of rubber is.http://www.letsfixit.co.uk/html/washing_machine_faq.html

My ge washer shuts off at 19 minutes, but filter is clean


The rug backing may have gone into the pump (the white motor thing) you might take the motor out and flush it out if it is clear and it still won't pump out the pump needs replaced.

Hi..we washed a rubber backed rug and the rubber came off and the water will not fully drain. we washed several empty cycles since with no results


You will have to take the hoses off between the tub and pump, and the pump and weall drain. They are packed with rubber. Oh, don't forget to clean the inside of the pump too. Run clean water through all hoses and the pump before reinstalling and you should be fine. Don't wash rubber backed rugs in washers unless you go to the laundry mat. This should be put in the maintenance guide of your washer book, but I've yet to see it.

Small rug washing in front end loader washer


its problably not able to balenbace the load of rugs, if the machine cant balance itwont go to high speed spin. in actuallity your probalby better off bringing the rugs to the laundry mats, especially if the are rubber backed, the rubber backing will come off clogging your pump assy, then your looking at replacing hte pump for a few hundred dollars, for a clean set of $30 bath rugs.

Front load washer won't drain


Possibly a blocked pump. Sounds about right if it has only happened after that item was washed.
