Also the machine is now not working as it will not take the water from the tap to start the first cycle is this because of the door or is this another problem?

    Thanks have tryd that but still no luck! think the door handle maybe broken as have had problems with it since i bought the machine and now the door handle is loose. The lock symbol appears on the panel may have to break door open to get clothes out as have found no other way to get the door open.Think i will go back to a top loader atleast when the machine breaks down you can still get your clothes out :-) thankyou for your suggestion.

    Hi,

    HAve had the same issue - door lock mechanism has broken. To resolve,

    1. unplug machine
    2. use a butter knife and push the mechanism between the handle and the cabinet while pulling the door open
    3. if this does not release door then ring repair person

    good luck

Ok just did it - latch swings towards you - you may need a coat hanger to PULL not push. i actually moved the coat hanger between the handle and the door - not between the door and the face of the washing machine. there is a small black sleeve around the metal piece - if you can remove that you will find an eye to poke the coat hanger through and feed enough coat hanger through - then pull. :) good luck

    sorry - amendment - if you fit the coat hanger between the handle and the door itself you push - if you fit the hanger between the door and the machine itself you pull. (the latter option here did not work for me)

The door on my washer wont stay closed and lock


make this steps and fix it. God bless you

First to unlock depending on model. There will be a pull tab either under the lower kick panel, behind the filter cover, or under the top panel. Pull this tab to unlock the door. Now you can remove the clothes and water. Refer to the owners manual for the location of your emergency door pull tab.

Door Switch
You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further.

He3t washer door is locked with clothes inside. Manual release doesn't work; and disconnecting DP21 doesn't work.


Possibly an item of clothing between the door and frame. Unplug the washer.
Press gently against the door latch while you pull on the emergency cord.
