You will need to remove the kick panel with ?? #10 ??torx bit.
Reach up in the latch area and you will feel a small teardropped shaped handle.
Pull it straight down, and the door will unlatch.

Try unplugging for 5 minutes though... sometimes a hard reboot is all that is necessary to re-sync.

Sampsung wf7708n6w1 door won't open!


Your door switch/lock is broken, you need to unplug the machine and remove the top, you can then reach down (tight space) and using a small screwdriver you can pry around the switch and get the door to open, you need to get a replacement door switch for the machine.

Leaning the machine back can make it easier to access the switch.

Kenmore 41729042991 front-loading washer door won't latch closed


It appears your lid switch/door latch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore F-28 error - door locked can't get in


Unplug the machine.
Wait 15 seconds.
Plug machine back in.
Press and hold the Power button until the lights come on.
Press and hold Start.
When you hear a click, press Stop.
Open door.

You still have an F-28 issue but you can at least get your clothes now.

Hope this helps.

Washer is stuck on spin and the door wont open. It is locked.


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

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.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.
