SOURCE: washing machine won't open

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Hotpoint electronic 800 delux 9525. can not open the door help


Make sure there is no water left inside washer.
If it still will not open, then you need to remove the top cover, and release the door manually from inside at the front where the door latches in.
Can be caused by the belt being off the pulley,or a broken ****** assy.

DEAR FRIEND,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

Her we go again!
Every week run your washer once with no clothes inside, and on hot water with a 1/4 cup of bleach! This will kill the mold and get rid of the smell.Just remember to make your next load WHITE CLOTHES , so if there is a drop of bleach still in it some where, that it does not put a white spot on your favorite clothing.
Hospitals use a mixture of 1/3 bleach to 2/3 water to disinfect! kills all even in your shower or bathe tube and leaves the groat white!!!

If you ever need service in the future!
Here is a good service that I recommend to my customers,
in our 65 year old appliance business! they answer 24/7
Not expensive!

They will help you, and all will be well!

Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You
Bless you,ngfam1
