The door lock problem could be a main control board issue.if there is water still in your machine take a shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove all the water. unplug the machine for a minute or so and plug it back in once all the water has been removed this should unlock the door.the check you drain pump fo and foreign objects that may be blocking it if there is nothing there you may also have a bad drain pump.
good luck i hope this helps

SOURCE: Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing Machine

no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Front Loader washing machine - door won't lock

It won't spin because the door won't lock. The door won't lock because the door lock mechanism is bad. I ran into this many times with the Neptune's when I was working for Sears. It is not a very easy fix. It is a pain to get to that door lock and replace it. You will most likely need a repair person to come out and fix it. I hope this helps you, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend though and let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck.

SOURCE: Door won't open on Samsung washer

This has happened to me twice. Both times I found the drain pump seized up with
1st time) The right rim from a pair of reading glasses
2nd time) A plastic toothpick
Both times the object was in the discharge port of the pump. You can see this by lifting the check valve with the pump removed. Removing the pump is simple. Unplug the washer. You have to remove the drain line from where its attached to the rear of the machine (one screw) to remove the rear access panel which slides into upper and lower slots. You will see the pump with an inlet and discharge line attached. The lines have simple squeeze clamps. When you remove the lines, you will drain the wash basin so have towels and a squeegie handy. Remove both lines and wait until the basin drains. When it stops draining remove the pumps electrical connector by squeezing the release catch on it while pulling it. The connector can only go on one way. Remove the 3 hold-down bolts on the pump baseplate. Remove the pump and lift open the discharge check valve and you'll find something there I guarantee it. Remove with needle nose pliers and re-assemble in reverse order.
This is actually a good design because the computer protects the pump by sensing a higher than normal current draw when foreign debris gets jammed in it. It will trigger the ND (No Drain) code and sometimes lock the door. Always check this first before you call the expensive repair man. If its not a jammed pump it will most likely be the control panel/processor. Good luck and always clean out pockets before loading the washer to prevent this,

Samsung washing machine wf7604naw door is stuck and the lock sign won't go away- how do i force the door to open- my cloths are locked inside


It can be the door lock servo which is a ****** to reach or tamper with as it's a sealed unit, I sorted mine by draining via the filter port at the bottom right front behind the rectangular front panel ( this will normally fill a small saucepan half way when machine is level which is the best way to drain although you will be using a cellulose sponge to soak the water from the floor rather than directly into the pan) then tilting from the front 45 degrees or more backwards. This all being done with power off and water inlet pipe disconnected as this can and will snap readily. Having rested back down to a level try the door again and smile.

Hello,my fully automatic washing machine samsung is showing de when i on star the power switch ,it works without clothes but when clothes are inserted it shows the de display,why is it happening?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It's a bit unusual to have the difference between with or without clothes but 'de' normally stands for Door Error! There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
PS All I can think of is that the clothes make the drum/rubber surround drop sufficiently to trigger the 'DE'- strange!

We have a samsung j845 top loader and a de error came up while it was washing and i cant even drain the clothes


DE indicates a door lock error.
Either the door lock, wiring or main control board can cause this fault.
The door lock is relatively inexpensive so it would be worth trying a new door lock first.
Check the wiring between the door lock and the control board.
If a new door lock doesn't fix it and the wiring is ok you are only left with the control board.

My wash machine wash the clothes but not doing the final spin, all the clothes all soak and wet


Handyman here -

Its possible that the door is not locking properly. If the door doesn't lock the machine will wash, but not spin the clothes dry. If you wait 15mins or so after machine is done, then set cycle to spin, it will pump any water that has dripped off your clothes out, but again it will not spin. Helps a little.

Good Luck!
