LG Front Loader WD-8074FHB

Hi There,
Our LG Intello Front Loader accidentally got door locked or child locked and we are unable to open the door. Do you have any idea how to open it. We have tried everything and do not have a manual
Thank You

    Ours' had a clogged drain filter, so it could not drain properly. The solution was to turn the machine off and drain the whole tub through the drain hose on the front bottom of the machine. This ended up being about 5 gallons of water or more. Once it was drained, I removed the filter and found it full of fuzzy debris and I cleaned that and put it all back together, then turned on the machine and set it to rinse and drain cycle. It finally was able to unlock and then relock itself and run the drain cycle and spin. I think I'm back in business, hopefully, once the cycle completes.

Sometimes you just have to force the door but first try hitting the machine near the door lock sometimes this helps the door interlock may be stuck in the closed position

The child lock on my LG front loader washer is now at about 5 minutes each load. How can I SUCCESSFULLY turn the thing off???


i think your issue is either the door lock itself or the control panel. i would start by unplugging the unit(or tripping the circuit breaker), then hold in the power button for about 10 secs--this resets many LG washer's electronics. then plug back in an see if that helps. i do not think your issue is the child lock feature, but rather the safety door lock feature. good luck.

Maytag front loader 2000 series code LF followed instructions in manual and has no power. Outlet works


Hi, is this a new washing machine? If not, then these Maytag front loading washing machines use a paraffin locking switch in the front panel to lock the door during operation. Now, if the switch has gone south and trip the the lock switch without locking the door. Then the washing machine want turn on.

What is a parfin locking switch work is a small container with paraffin (wax) in it with a heater. When the washing machine is turn on. The control board indicate that the machine is in operation and a small amount of current is applied to the paraffin switch to the heating element. This make the parfin to expand trip the locking mechanism and locking door during operation. Keep the door lock from accidental openings. It will take about 4 minute after the washing machine has quite it running operation to open the front loader door. The paraffin needs to cool down to release the locking mechanism. stewbison

Hi, my front loader washing machine (Bosch Logixx 8 sensitive) has child lock written on the screen and will not start the load. ive tried switching it on and off again but it does nothing. the door is...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry.

good luck going forward.

My neptune frontend loader will flash the door lock for 2 seconds and then it will go off when ever i start the machine, i think my child opened it with out turning it off.. is something broken


HI- It is possible that the door lock was damaged if someone forced it open mid-cycle. The machine will not cycle unless the door lock engages. Will probably need a to get a Tech out to have a look. Good luck.
