I have a lg wm3677hw washer dryer combo. the door lock has been acting odd. so i figured i would replace the door interlock. after replacing the interlock the door will not unlock. i hear it make 3...

  • Hi Chris,

    This is late for you, and probably you've done something already --- but.

    The door lock is easily replaced. It works with a little heater inside it that is supposed to delay the unlocking by pushing on a tiny lever that prevents the lock from sliding to unlock.

    The washer runs power through a resistor when the door is locked, and this heat keeps the bimetal strip (like in a thermostat for aquarium heater etc) bent, preventing the door from unlocking. When the washer turns off, the power to the heater/resistor is shut off, an when it cools off in a few moments, the bimetal strip relaxes and pulls the tiny lever out of the way.

    I expect there is a problem with the position or the flex of the bitmetal strip.

    If you don't have another switch handy right now, you can TEST the functionality by simply jumpering the two wires on the connector. This will bypass the lock altogether, but the latch will still work. When TESTING be careful not to let the door come open because at high speed that drum could grievously injure someone.
