SOURCE: can't open door of lg wd-1018c washing machine

Hi, I don't know if this is much help to you now as it has been a while since you posted your problem. I had the exact same problem and after a lot of swearing and 2 days and no help what so ever from LG I took matters into my own hands.

I took the top off the the machine and removed the small steel plate, you will know what I am talking about after you have done the same.

I had my hubby hold the tub back as far as possible and used a screw driver to release the latch which is at the front of the machine about half way down. You will see a small silver steel knobby looking thing. After the machine was finally opened I unscrewed the screws on the inside of the door and used a flat screw driver to prise the housing apart. Be careful not to drop the glass window as when the housings start coming apart the window is no longer secure.

I found that a small piece of plastic on the handle had perished and broken not allowing the correct function. A phone call to Sunstate spare parts got the new handle to me within a few days at a cost of $20.95.

My only problem now is putting the bloody thing back together. I have been at it for 3 days with no sucess. If you manage to work out how to put yours together please let me know. I hope this has helped and hasnt come too late.
Cherie.

SOURCE: bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.

Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

Turn the power off and leave for 5-10 minutes then turn on. This should release the door lock the problem could be the pump drain filter is blocked clean this and it should resolve future problems.

Door wont open after cycle has finished, have put on a different cycle didnt work either, pluged out maching for 30 min didnt work either, can you help


Hi.

The door does not open because there is water detected inside the machine. Water must be removed through the drain filter connected to drain pump.


Disconnect power.
If front loader remove the trim panel at the base of the machine. Top loader have access at the bottom or at the back.
Locate the drain filter access at one side.
Remove drain filter cap.
Collect water using containers (have them ready, a lot of water will flow out).
Put back cap and trim and reapply power.

Emptying water from drain lines is usually enough to unlock the door. If that does not work, then the door is opened reaching back side of the door latch (from inside the washer's cabinet). Access is from top, after removing panel, or from bottom. Some front loader has an emergency unlock cord inside that can be reached undoing completely the drain filter. The procedure requires disassembling and should be done by a technician.

You can find parts and diagrams for most appliances using the links listed on this page:

The door is jammed on my LG Intellowasher WD-1023C-Washing Machine - Front loader. It has finished it's wash cycle, but the door won't open


Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!

Washing finished it's cycle and now the door won't open. Is there a manual overide to open it? How do we get our washing back?


If there is still water in the washing machine above a certain level, it will not allow the door to be opened.
To open the door, Open the hatch to the drain pump at the lower left front of the washing machine. If there is water in the machine and you can't put machine in drain, then you can detach the drain hose and drain the water into a container.
make sure that power is disconnected.
With the hatch open, remove the screws holding the red plastic handle in place. Pull the handle and the door will open. Put the handle back into its slot and put screws back in place.

Check the drain pump while you're there to make sure it is free of foreign objects

Bosch axxis door won't open


michele99, So when you put it on drain, do you here the machine trying to drain the water? After it finishes draining, (you have to wait a few minutes, it should then have a blinking light
on the Finished/Door locked light.
Are you waiting for it to finish?

Won't turn back on and finish cycle


Press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds, & wait for 2 minutes to open door. You can then re-start the wash. It is possible you cld hv damaged fhe door switch. For front loaders you do not open the door during a wash, never. Less problems.
