If you turn off your machine at the wall and leave it for 2 minutes the timer on the door lock should allow you to open it. If it still has water in then get some old towels before you open the door!

This is a hard one to deal with! You are better off going and paying a good bodywork garage to fix this!
To get at all the bolts and screws to fix the problem you need the door open.
For a home fix you would have to physically smash the outside door handle off and rip out the guts of it still in the door just to reach a small metal bar to open the door.
Pay someone else to deal with this headache.

How do I fix a door that opens on its own?

It is likely someone has the same type of remote and is trolling the neighborhood searching for a garage to clean out. Older openers without the rolling code feature are susceptible to this

The dryer stopped working for my hwd1000 --

Check your belt. It may be shot. And that will cause your machine to do that. The heat will still work but your clothes will not dry.

This doesn't work for me. I've tried everything. I'm getting very frustrated, and am trying anything to prevent me from purchasing a new garage door opener. I just bought the condo, and received no garage...

It seems you have done everything right. I would return the universal remotes to Lowes and purchase the correct remote for the opener. There have been several people with universal remotes and this same problem.

Craftsmen garage door opener 139.53919 door spring split in two and garage door will not open

Have someone out to fix the spring.
DON"T fix it yourself. These things are very dangerous and can cut off fingers or worse. Just Google replacing garage door springs to read up and the danger replacing these can be.
Have someone who know what they are doing fix it.

I'm asking about a problem my parents have with their Sharp Carousel microwave. When using the oven, it stops after about a minute, then when the door is opened, the turntable starts revolving and the fan...

If this is a countertop microwave and is not an expensive unit, it will not be cost effective to pay someone to repair it. Best thing is to just buy a new microwave especially if it is very old. The cost of the repairs could easily be more than a new unit and sometimes you pay to have it repaired an then something else goes wrong. With the condition you describe I would not use this unit until it is repaired or replaced with a new one.

Replaced sprocket and worm gear on chamberlain 1/2 opener

The easiest way to fix this would be to take the chain off the sproket with the door and the trolley in the down position. Next hit the wall button and pay attn. to weather the gear is turning clockwise, you want it to turn that direction, wait until the unit stops by itself, next put the chain back on and now you should be able to adjust the limits. otherwise you should call a local professional. They will usually service your door as well as fix your opener.

It sounds like you have a bad relay. If you know where the relay is or how to find it, you could fix/replace/disable the function. OR there could be a short circuit in your wiring because a brief overview of your owners manual, if you are the same as a 2004, indicates there are a few circuits that trigger the chime (i.e. door, lights, turn signal, safety belt). You could test for these with a circuit board safe probe, or a digital multimeter; or you can find the fuses related to each electronic circuit that triggers the chime and start by pulling those fuses to see if ends the chime. If any or all of this seems too crazy, I'm sorry to say but you will need to find someone who is good with troubleshooting electronics to help fix this. I'm not saying the dealer is your only option, but I would rather pay for somone who knows either the vehicle very well or is great with electronics. If you decide to bring this to someone, and you have to pay by the hour, I would pay more for a better technician opposed to paying less for a less qualified technician that will take longer to find/fix the issue. Just my 2 cents. Good Luck.
