Door won't open and is jammed.


We have an electronic Sears front load model with which that happened. . If this is a Sears machine contact the service number located in your manual and they should be able to talk you through it. For us it ended up being a door switch that had become misaligned. Make sure the machine spins the water out of the tub before you try to open the door if it is a front loader.

I have a whirlpool sixth sense washing machine. the door open light constantly flashing although the door is well shut. No programmes work


We had the same issue: the cycle would start then stop, with the door open light coming on. It turned out to be a faulty contact in the door. Took a technician 15 minutes to fix.

My parents bought a Haier HBF655TEME washing machine last year december. Last week it stopped working. The door light stays on continuously when clothes are put in and the door is shut and it doesn't...


It is possible that the door switch has failed as the bulb is ON even when the door is shut . This indicates that the SWITCH is not cutt off and so the program controller will not allow the module to go forward or work. It is needed that you start from this point to use a multimeter to check the switch/ poles contact to confirm.

Hi there. my machine suddenly stopped 2 mins


there may be something small that has stopped the pump from draining.use a shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove the water.once this is done unplug the unit for a couple of minutes then plug it back in this should open the door.then you need to remove the drain hoses from the pump and see if there is anything stopping the impellar wheel from turning.

Front load washer isn't spinning out


The first thing to check is if the door is locking. Put the unit into spin turn unit on let it go for about a minute then shut it off, try to open the door right after you shut it off if the door opens you need a door switch if not chances are you need a motor control board. Before replacing the board call for service they are expensive if it is a guess. good luck
