SOURCE: Door won't lock

You either have to change the whole lock assembly, or just fix the catch magnet which might be malfunctioning. In parts shouldn't be more than 100$. you can try looking for the part here: http://www.repairclinic.com/ Good luck

SOURCE: indesit WIA 121 not working - door latch not shutting

At first thought it was door lock mechanism was at fault but proved it to be ok - removed rubber 'boot' which on this model was on two stretchable spring retainers and checked operation of door lock.
Thought door hinges may have been bent so dismantled door, finding the problem to be the pin that the door latch pivots on had come out on one side so not lining up properly. This was easily pushed back into position.

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on


On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

I own a maytag neptune washing machine. It was working o.k. and suddenly it won't start. I push the start button and it buzzes and shows a message that says,"It appears the door was not opened...


Hi Debi:
First I suggest to try unplugging the unit for 60 seconds to reset the control board. If that doesn't work then open the dispenser and remove the softner and bleach container. There is a cord near the front you can pull to open the door lock. If you still have issues with your door lock after manually opening the door, you will need to order and replace the door latch assembly.

Also I could bet you need to replace your door latch assembly. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.
