    I am in the same boat. There should be a way to manually open the door if you have a power failure.

    WFR 2460 - have the same problem with the door not opening.

    Tried the emergency release to no avail (ran another cycle, turned off power, checked child lock...)

    Any suggestions would be most welcome.

    I noticed that the door made some noise when I closed it the last time. But after finishing the cycle (remove laundry on display) door won't open anymore: tried another spin cycle: no luck. Also tried pulling down the door release from the drain cleanout - but I am really afraid something in the lock mechanism actually broke off. Can I open the machine in any other way?

On the bottom right-hand side of the washer, there should be a door that contains the drain cleanout. Open the door and in the upper right-hand corner of the opening, there should be the end of a plastic handle. It may barely be showing, so look closely. Pull it down with your fingers or a plyers and your door should release.

Issue one: interior smells issue 2 : door won't open. have the cycle thru again.2 paused & started. 3 re-set. 4 turned off. 5 turned off at power point (1hr +)6. run the rinse & drain cycle...

Solution 1: leave door open when not in use and run enzyme cleaner like affresh, or 2 cups of distilled vinegar weekly until smell is gone.
Solution 2: Most of the front load waahers have a manual door lock release. This is usually accessed by removing the bottom front cover and reaching up to the door latch assembly, to pull onrelease cord/plastic ring. If door locks stuck again, you will need to replace the door lock/latch assembly.

Water in the detergent cup

Yes. There will be a bit of water in the tray. The best thing to do is empty the water out either into the washer or a sink. Then leave the tray drawer open as well as the washer door open. Mold can develop on front load washers just like it can with top loaders. Leaving the drawer and door open to dry will help to prevent this.

GE model WHDVH626FWW Front load washer won't run, can't open door

your drain pump is likely clogged,and is equipped with a clean out port. remove lower cover by 3 phillips screws on bottom front. you see the drain pump up front to the right. If there is a lot of water left in machine then have bucket/pan avail and plenty of towels. wet dry shop vac helps. you can open door and remove clothes from here. reach up on right side to where the latch is on inside (you have to go by feel) and find small round pull tab on bottom of latch/lock asm, and pull down, this will unlock door. carefull of water level when opening door.
to fix problem, unscrew cap on pump asm. water will pour out, and a tray will slide out with debris clogging pump. look inside housing for remaining ****. using finger check impeller area on right..
reassemble. machine should work perfect now. Pump is designed to be cleaned out and will not void warranty. newer machines have access port cut in panel for this clean out area.

I cannot open the door of my washing machine. Is there some sort of emergency button to automatically open the door? it's been jammed for 3 weeks now. Please help!

To manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened

Or pull out your dispenser tray, along the rear edge you will find a cord, pull this like above. Depends on your model.

My GE Washer Door Won't Lock

Try this, press the pause/cancel button twice. Open the door, ensure there is nothing blocking the door and close the door fully. Open the detergent drawer fully and re-close the drawer. Select Quick wash and press start.

If this does not correct the problem, call for service under warranty.

Dear publican,
Welcome to
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


If the washer will not turn on due to the open and unlocked door!
Then the door mechanism and door switch that that activates the washer to start have failed.
You can do it your self if you know how or call service and they will get you on your way to clean laundry!
Cheers , Bless You Huuum
