How do I unlock a whirlpool duet washer


from a previous discussion:

Wait at least three minutes after the end of the cycle before attempting to unlock your Whirlpool washer. The door will not unlock until the motor speed equals 0 and 180 seconds have elapsed since the motor control unit received the "Stop" command. If the water in the washer is warmer than 122 degrees Fahrenheit or the water level is set higher than Wool, Delicate or Hand Wash, the washer must drain before the door latch will unlock 2 Hold down the "Control Lock" button on your Whirlpool washer for three seconds at the end of the washing cycle. Listen, and when you hear the unlatching sound, the door should open.3 If your Whirlpool washer did not unlock at the end of Step 1, press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for five seconds to manually reset your washing machine.4 Unplug your Whirlpool washer and leave it unplugged for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, plug your washer back in. The washer's programming should be reset and the door should open.5 Manually unlock the door of your Whirlpool washing machine. Make sure to unplug the appliance before completing the manual unlock. Use a screwdriver to remove the metal strip, called the toe panel, at the bottom of the washing machine. Once you've removed the toe panel, reach up inside the front panel of the washer and feel around for the door latch. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab at the bottom of the door latch and pull it gently. When you hear a click, the door should open.

How do I get the door to open when still locked after normal cycle stopped with 1 minute left?


Try putting it through another cycle and see if it is still going to stay locked. That would seem like a timer problem. The door should only be locked normally, as I see it, when there is power applied to the locking solenoid so it should not remain locked with no power. You might call a maytag dealer and ask a sales or service person about this also.

    I want to stop my machines cycle. How can I unlock the door?


    you have to evacuate all the water. there should be a stop cycle position or button maybe press the start button twice, i am not sure on this model . the macine will then pump out the water and stop after a minute or sothe door should unlock. if the water is still in the machine it will stay locked.

    I hope this was useful.

    Keyless entry problem to 04 suburban the doors will all lock however the drivers side will not unlock. Last night the passenger door unlocked and I tried manually to unlock from that door and drivers door...


    FIRST TRY TO USE LITHIUM GREASE SPRAY CAN ON ALL MOVING ITEMS INSIDE DOOR. AS YOU SPRAY EACH ITEM PUSH AND PULL ON DOOR HANDLE, DOORLOCK PLUNGER. WHILE YOUR IN THERE DO THE DOOR WINDOW GEARS AND MOVE WINDOW UP AND DOWN TOO. SPRAY ALL YOU WANT THE GREASE WONT HURT ANYTHING.
    IF STILL DOES NOT WORK REPLACE DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR. USUALLY ONLY 2-3 BOLTS AND 1 CONNECTOR WITH 2 WIRES COMING OFF IT.

    Doorlocks keep locking even when out of the


    Dave, it would appear that at one point one of the manual locks were forced either to unlock or lock and has now repositioned the nuetral point at a different location on the locking rod, hence, sending false readings to the control unit to either unlock or lock, I would try this, close all doors and manually lock them see which lock lever look unlike the rest in that position, this will be the culprit and have to be reset on the rod behind the door trim panel. This advice is as best as I can give without manually seeing the car. Drive safely

    Oven door won't unlock


    I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!
