Hood latch broken


You will need a needle nose pliers. Find the cable where it broke away from the plastic handle. Grip it and pull towards you. If you cannot easily get it to move you may use a stiff board and prop it in place in the area near the pliers and then work the pliers against the board in a prying, lever action motion while gripping hard so it doesn't slip.

The microwave works at times and then does not work. What is wrong? a Switch?


Full closure of a microwave door is a serious safety item. Check the door for full closure. Is there anything in or on the hinges that might resist full closure. Check the latch mechanism for foreign objects even food on the latch. Also check around the sealing point around the entire door and mating seal. Closure should be a distinct snap.

Emerson microwave door latch


I have an Emerson MW8999RD that all of a sudden yesterday wouldn't latch. I don't think you have to, but I took the door off (three screws hold the case on which needs to be removed to get at the top hinge). Then I took off the inner plastic picture frame - pretty easy with a thin blade to move the fragile tabs. Then I removed the metal frame that has the little microwave blocking holes. This was the hardest part because the plastic retaining tabs are even more fragile and I broke one. Then I found the loose spring due to broken plastic hook as described above. I was able to make a new hook by simply looping a small zip tie where the old plastic hook tip broke off. Now works great!

Ge front loading washer door won't unlock


Some machines do this when the power is cut, there should be what looks like a screw heat on the front of the handle which will allow you to unlock the door and open it. If there is still water inside you will need to empty the machine first. There is usually a hatch at the bottom of the unit, open this hatch and you will find a cap to unscrew, unscrewing this cap will empty the contents of the machine onto your floor so be prepared!!!!!

How do I install a new Handle/Latch assembly on the door of a Whirlpool LHW0050PQ 4 Wash Machine...have to remove present one as broken---pull handle door catch does not release---have to release putting a...


I had to replace part No 8182408 - the washing machine door handle. There is a plastic bar in the middle of the assembly that broke because the door was opened too hard.

There are two springs, the latch, and the plastic piece that brings it all together. The smaller spring is the key, call it the L spring. It is shaped like an L and goes around the ends of the latch. The other spring is the larger and straight and goes around the tops of the plastic piece. The straight spring goes in with the crossbar facing on the outside of the washer. The latch with the L spring fits in between the plastic crossbar with the U shaped end pressing against the latches inside bar. The antenna of the L spring needs to wrap around the plastic bar and fit inside the straight spring bar. This applies pressure on the latch to stay closed. When the handle is pulled, it releases the pressure and allows you to open the door. The Metal bar is used to hold all the pieces together and once you have the alignment right, put it back into the door with the straight spring antenna tucked in the spots on the door, as well as the metal bar ends. Screw in the two spots that holds the assembly in place and you will be set. The door should open and shut easily.

1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

Getting a small plastic piece out of a door


If the piece is jammed (locked) in the door latch assembly, there is a manual release that you can use to open the door latch to see if the piece will come from free. The following link advises:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

This may require two people. One to pull on the manual release, while the other works on retrieving the broken piece from the door latch.

Another method may be to remove the door latch assembly so you can easily manipulate it outside the machine. This link explains how to remove the door latch assembly:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587965-door_latch_replacement_fdl_error

Now...if the piece is jammed too far inside the door latch assembly, a last resort would be to replace the latch. I hope it does not come to that, but it may be a last resort. The link provided will give you all the necessary steps to complete this repair, if required.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
