Try to get water out first then the door may open with power on.there should be a little door or flap at the bottom front of machine to drain water manually,you may also find when you do this that rubbish will come out & machine will start working again & pump its own water out.The pump is probably just blocked & you need to clean it out..You would be surprised how many people dont even know that there is a little compartment down there at the bottom that they are supposed to clean out regularly.

Check drain light. machine won't open

You probably have a bad drain pump and the door lock wont release because of it. You're gonna need to replace the drain pump and if there's water in the machine, it's going to be a messy repair. I'd recommend a repair man on this job. If not order the drain pump for that model off the internet, take the top off, take the soap dispenser out, take the screw out, take the display board off carefully. Then take the front off, unscrew the door switch. on the door seal, use a flat head to take the ring out. If you got a drain at the bottom, take those screws out. Remove the door. There's going to be water everywhere if you didn't drain it out the front (if it's an option.) Replace the drain pump. (Kind of a little puzzle on every model.) Put it back together.

Have a whirlpool AWO 3551 washing machine. Door locked light flashes and machine stops at random points in the program. Pump works OK and drains water. Don't suspect door lock module as washer works on...

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

Door locked light stays on so cannot open door

Make sure that all the water has drained or the door will not open, lay the hose into a bowl or other shallow vessel and let any remaining water run out. Wait a for a while for lock to release,if it still does not open then the door is going to have to be opened by force.
Plz rate this solution.

Take the plug off the wall, remove the rear panel, there is a hose coming into the outlet area from the tub. With a pair of pliers ease the grip clip on this hose, be prepared for a lot of water. If possible you could collect it into something low like a basin. After all the water has come out, gently try the door to open. Do not force the door. If you dont succeed put on the machine switch on for a minute, and then off. Wait for 2 minutes, the door should open when you try.
