Question about Washing Machines
I have a brand new Sharp ES-V80HA washing machine. As per the manual I started doing a 12 minute rapid cycle with no laundry in it but the washing machine hangs after filling and rinsing and spinning (it should take 12 mins to complete but is hanging after 3 mins, leaving 9 minutes remaining). It will not unlock the door despite stopping the cycle, or turning the unit off and on again. How do I get this washing machine to open the door again so I can put a load in, as it should have flushed out any residual water from manufacturing.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There is a service manual behind the control panel it will show you how to test the door locks. If might have a bad lock solenoid.

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

"UL" means "Unbalanced Load" - make sure the washer isn't overloaded first or if you are doing rugs, blankets, or lots of jeans, split the load. You can also try running an empty or light load and see how the machine behaves.
If you still have the problem, you may have some issues with the drum bumpers, etc., but try the easy things first.
