I agree with mnilgwia40 that a springy steel tool.... I used an old long knife with a flat end and springy... worked a treat.

SOURCE: faulty door catch on my LG washer?

I have had the same problem for a week now. Until I find a spare part I slide a scraper to push the catch open. That just works.

I am unable to find that model number for your unit but I did find another that was close and is also an LG Tromm click this link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=28702783&pkw_=basket&model_id=5520802&NewWindow=1 you would have to remove the bottom panel the one that has the drain filter attached to it by removeing the screws that hold the panel in place. Once the panel is removed then you would reach up along the side that the door lock assembly is on and you will see and feel a cord with a ring that you would pull and then your door would open once you pulled this cord. In some units if you unplug the machine for 7 minutes this also causes the control to reset and sometimes this also causes the door to be able to open once the control is reset. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks Rick

Washer won't unlock


These doors are usually on a timer and so won't be released for opening until a couple of minutes have passed by after turning the machine off.

Assuming you've already allowed for this, try giving the door a good firm push (closing) on the mechanism. It may just have caught partially closed.

Door won't open


You will need to remove the top cover of the washer and reach down to release the door with the manual release.

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!

The door is jammed on my LG Intellowasher WD-1023C-Washing Machine - Front loader. It has finished it's wash cycle, but the door won't open


Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!
