Likely that your pump hasn't let all the water out; try getting your outlet hose from the wall pipe and place into a bucket low to the ground; let water come out, your door will open after a short while. Do not force the door. After the water does come out then make sure your pump or drain hose is not blocked. Also clean out your outlet filter.

    Note: doors do not open if water is still in the machine; due to blockage or whatever.

Lg Washing machine. WD11020D will not open.

door lock sounds like its broken, you will need to remove the two screws on the back of washer top and remove the top. (power off) now as you look at washer from the front you will see a round object with a pipe. remove the pipe and see if the door opens. this is just to check to see if its this part stopping the door to be open, you are going to need to use a flat blade to push the pin in the lock you should see the pin as this stops the door from being open. the part looks like this if the door is slammed or banged, it can damage the lock, easy to replace when the you can open the door. wiring plug only fits one way.

Manually Unlocking the Door Lock System
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Remove the lower kick panel. 3. Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit. 4. Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a tear-drop shaped tab. 5. Gently pull the tab down about a ¼" or until a click is heard. 6. The door may be opened.

Top loader door wont open

Something has caused the washer to not release the door. Is there an error code that is flashing (FE?). A locked door can be due to too much water in the basket, suds causing false water detection (should be using HE), or perhaps the drain is clogged.

If you are sure that the water is not going to spill out on floor, then you might be able to get door open by unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes (mine took an hour) for the electric lock to release.

Door clicks and wont open and washer runs but wont do anything

Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit. Be aware you should discconect machine's power cable first !! Good luck!
