Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Releasing the door latch is different on various washing machine models. If this answer does not help, send me the model number.
1.) Unplug your machine.
2.) This is a two person job. You are going to tilt the washing machine up 45 degrees on the handle side. Do not lay the unit on its side, you may damage some of the internal components. There will be some water still in the washing machine, between a quart and a gallon.
3.) Reach up from the bottom to the back of the door handle. You may have a rectangular plastic box with a cross bar in the middle to pull down on or another mechanical mechanism you can move.
Once again I do not have your model number.

SOURCE: j845 washing machine door won't open

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened. Your door lock is broken; actually you have to wait 2 minutes after the wash is over to try the door. If you cannot have access through under the machine, you can try through the top. Some models have a cord behind the dispenser tray.

SOURCE: Washing finished it's cycle and now the door won't

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

Door stay locked after finished washing hotpoint w/machine ref 9526


See if you notice any water still inside the washing machine, if so run another spin cycle to try and remove it as it will not open if there is still water inside.
If you don't see any water inside, try unplugging it and letting it cool off, the lock should release after this

I pushed the 'pause' button during the wash cycle of my LG WD-3274HD and now the door won't open.


Hi!

The machine knows it dint't finish the washing cycle, and, because it may be possible that water is still a lot inside, the door is locked.
If you are shure the door can be opened without the water coming out by the door, simply disconnect it from the electrical supply and wait a few minutes until the door unlocks. (you will hear the unlock click)

Good luck!

I cannot get my washer to release so i can open it up and switch clothes over.. It has finished its cycle i even made it do another cycle to try and get it to release but it wont.. any suggestions? Kat


There are many reasons why the door may be jammed shut -

1. The water hasn't pumped out properly and the washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock (a rubber hose connected to the door interlock and connected to a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water forces air up this tube and locks the door)
2. Washing machine won't empty water
3. The water has pumped out properly, but a blockage of gunge inside the pressure chamber bottle is trapping the air that's operating the door lock (if a pneumatic lock is fitted - not many have these days due to cost cutting)
4. Door interlock jammed
5. Door catch, handle, or mechanism broken
Try running Just the rinse spin cycle again,

Indesit wd 125. Wash cycle had finished, door lock was off but


Unplug machine, take lid off and locate the door lock. You will have to use a small screwdriver or something to release the lock. Then replace your door handle.

Door will not open on my WM1480FHD after wash


Hi ii_goldie,What about the RINSE cycle... maybe the washer knows the "full cycle" is NOT finished.

The washer will display DONE... and make the door available to you. If not the cycle may not be finished. OR, turn it off, however, DON'T open the door if your machine has not drained all the water out, allow the system to finish.
