The door on LG front loader washing machine won’t unlock


hi Margaret.
If the washing machine malfunctions or you need to stop the cycle and retrieve the clothing, you can force the door to unlock.
  • Open the door after the "Door Lock" indicator turns off. ...
  • Press the "On/Off" button, if the washer is not already on.
  • Select the "Spin Speed" button to turn on the Drain & Speed cycle.

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.

Lg Washing machine. WD11020D will not open.


door lock sounds like its broken, you will need to remove the two screws on the back of washer top and remove the top. (power off) now as you look at washer from the front you will see a round object with a pipe. remove the pipe and see if the door opens. this is just to check to see if its this part stopping the door to be open, you are going to need to use a flat blade to push the pin in the lock you should see the pin as this stops the door from being open. the part looks like this https://www.ebay.com/i/253266384384?rt=nc if the door is slammed or banged, it can damage the lock, easy to replace when the you can open the door. wiring plug only fits one way.

When i wash it smells like rooting eggs i tryed bleach and the tablets but smells up the hole house what wrong its a lg tromm wm-2487hwm steam washer


I had the same problem. You must take out your clothes immediately and leave the door open after every wash to let the inside of the washer completely dry. I believe I read to run a cycle of bleach water and wipe down the inside of the door and interior with bleach/water mixture. Then let it dry. You then can start washing your clothes again, but you must be diligent about leaving the door open to air out between washings.Hope this works for you. I almost sold my machines shortly after I bought them because my clothes were always smelly after washing. Leaving the door open has worked for us.

Top loader door wont open


Something has caused the washer to not release the door. Is there an error code that is flashing (FE?). A locked door can be due to too much water in the basket, suds causing false water detection (should be using HE), or perhaps the drain is clogged.

If you are sure that the water is not going to spill out on floor, then you might be able to get door open by unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes (mine took an hour) for the electric lock to release.

Adding clothes after wash started


It is best to finalise what clothes you want to wash, regarding front loaders. Or if you stop the machine, you have to wait for a couple of minutes for the door mechanism to release the lock, before u try the door. At times the door won't open for there is water in there; & if you force the door you'll damage the door assembly. So a lot of caution here!
