If the door is jammed, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains how:

If the latching mechanism is broken, I have included a follow-on link that explains how to replace one.


Replacements (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If any of the links I provide do not work, copy and paste them to your web browser.

Unplug washer and remove lower front panel by removing 3 screws on bottom of panel. You will need "torx" or nutdriver. Reach in and up on right side of inside of washer, right were the door latch is, at the bottom of the mechanism is a manual release. Pull downward on the release and the door should open.

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

My duet sport washer stopped washing,panel is not working and I cannot open the dorrs.what to do?My clothes are inside the washer for 2 days now.


You have to remove the top cover of the washer by removing the screws on the back that run the top edge, then remove the top panel by sliding it to the rear. With the top off, reach down the front toward the locking mechanism. There is a round washer attached to a wire on the bottom of the locking mechanism that when you pull it down, it will unlock the door. Mine has done the same thing and flashes a code of f-28 which I have found to be an electrical failure. I have not been able to fix it as of yet but this should get your clothes out.

I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.
