Hi there,

Well if you remove the 1/4" screws along the bottom most panel, the lower front panel will come down. If you reach up where the door switch is, on the bottom of the switch, there is a pull tab that will manually release the door. Please post comments if further you have the same problem.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Kemore Elite Front Load washer was flashing F11 and i repeated the drain, spin cycle several times. now flashing dL and F . The door is locked so I am unable to remove wet clothing.


Try lowering the drain hose onto the ground and see if the water comes out. Turn off at the wall and then back on again a few minutes later. See if the door unlocks this time. Most front loaders wont let you open the door if it thinks its still full of water.

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.

I was washing a load of clothes and in the final spin the washing machine made a loud noice and then I saw a metal band in the machine with the cloths. But I can not open the door to find out what's...


Sounds like a front load washer ?. If it is, then there still maybe water in there which a sensor is detecting it thus keeping you from opening it even though you unplugged it then back in. It is a built in safety feature. Try pressing the stop button (unit plugged in) and holding it for several seconds. If that doesn't work, you need to call a tech. Last resort use a crow bar. Of course that will cause costly repairs. I am not a big fan of front loaders as there are too many problems with them and are harder to work on.

Good Luck

unfortunately we hvae created our own problems on front loads .all front loads all brands retain water in door boot .few people today wash with plain chlorine bleaches as result bacteria and mold are more likely to occur best solution wash door boot regularly with bleach and water solution run a bleach wash (no clothes) every few months and leave door open slightly after use don't give up too easily more than 1 cleaning may be necessary and should be done regularly
