Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
The lock button is stuck! and I cannot open the door eventhough I have attempted to turn off the power and unplugged it. How do I get the door to release?
1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Try Resetting the Lock by Turn off the washer or dryer .. press and hold down the lock button while powering it back on . Once it's on let go see if this corrects the problem

Good Morning Richard, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire oven door is stuck closed and you are unable to shut the door. You can disconnect power from your range for at least ten minutes and that will reset your oven. This may trick your door latch into opening.
You can also hold down the cancel or clear button for 10 to 15 seconds that may allow your door latch to release. Also attempt to hold down the light and cancel buttons. I hope this information has been helpful to some degree. -Matt
