Door on washer will not open

I puchased a washing machine and ran a load of clothes through and now the door will not open. I think the machine is off balance. If i balance the machine and run it through a cycle again wil this unlock the door?

Re: Door on washer will not open

Select Drain/Spin to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door wil unlock at the end of the spin.The washer door will not unlock if the unit has not drained.

Smells musty and not washing clothes well

"In washing in the HE washers I think that if you have more than 3 loads a week you should maybe wash your washer at least once a week. I have started wiping the door off and leaving it open between washing and that helps a
lot with the smell.
This is why I think if you could wash the washer once a week it would probably do better. You never had this problem in the old washers." Try this in your washer.

Door locked on compact Whirlpool front-load washer

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

Can't Open the Washer Door---Our Clothes are held Hoatage

Check and ensure that the tubes and passages to the water level pressure sensor are not blocked by caked detergent, lint , etc.
( this may have caused the water overflow in the first place)
clean up the internal parts that are wetted by the overflow.

clean the door lock mechanism. ( this normally works on a temperature delay mechanism, if cleaning does not work, replace)

all the above done with the power unplugged and water inlets unplugged , of course

Smely Clean Clothes

We had a similiar problem. It was mildew in the washer and in the fabrics. We ran two or three empty loads with some bleach added in, and we leave the door open so the drum dries.
The towels and clothes we hung out in bright sunlight. The UV rays kill the mildew.
