Most newer models do have a lock and usually the machine will not run if it is not engaged.

How do I increase water level in my wfxd8400uc?


I get this complaint a lot from home owners , I take it you have just got your first front loader washer , and you don't think it adds enough water to wash anything , this is the water saving feature of front loaders
but a simple test I tell most folks to do if they think there water level sensor is not working right
set washer to auto load sense on water level , normal wash cold water, permapress add nothing to drum completely empty! no soap unless you have a auto soap dispenser then it wont start to you add some and close door

start cycle wait till fill is complete just as it goes to agitate stop cycle (plug can be pulled for this if buttons have locked out )and open door see if water level is two fingers wigth under door seal , if its close your ok if it's a long way off then contact a repair department to look at auto sense water level

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

Kenmore front loader washing machine won't start


You will need to replace the door lock. Here is the part to order.
To replace the lock, remove the band securing the boot to the front panel and fold back the door boot. Now you can access and replace the lock. Let me know if you should need further help.

My washer works but it will not work in the spin cycle


Every washing machine, top or front loader, has a safety feature that disables the spin functions and that is the lid switch/lock for top loaders and door switch/lock assembly for front loaders. This is to prevent injury when the lid/door is opened during a high speed spin. Check lid/door switch harness and connections. Replace lid/door switch assembly if no issue found with the harness and connections.

Frigidaire front load, ERR LOC, washer won't run


Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!

Whirlpool washine machine #AWM 3082 - door wont open


Try to unplug the unit for five minutes, then plug back in. Try to start a load, as soon as the door locks agian, hit cancel. That will sometimes let you get back in. Im not sure if this is a top loader or front loader, but there is a way (if its a front loader) to remove the bottom front kick plate, then you have to reach up the inside to the door latch assm, on the bottom of that is a small round handle, pull it straight down, and the door will unlock. If its a top loader (i.e. Cabrio, Oasis, Etc), you can open the top only by unclipping the top from the base. You can do this by putting a putty knife in between the top and cabinet, then finding the clips, pushing them in and lfting, you can get your stuff out that way.
