Ge front loading washer door won't unlock


Some machines do this when the power is cut, there should be what looks like a screw heat on the front of the handle which will allow you to unlock the door and open it. If there is still water inside you will need to empty the machine first. There is usually a hatch at the bottom of the unit, open this hatch and you will find a cap to unscrew, unscrewing this cap will empty the contents of the machine onto your floor so be prepared!!!!!

How do I install a new Handle/Latch assembly on the door of a Whirlpool LHW0050PQ 4 Wash Machine...have to remove present one as broken---pull handle door catch does not release---have to release putting a...


I had to replace part No 8182408 - the washing machine door handle. There is a plastic bar in the middle of the assembly that broke because the door was opened too hard.

There are two springs, the latch, and the plastic piece that brings it all together. The smaller spring is the key, call it the L spring. It is shaped like an L and goes around the ends of the latch. The other spring is the larger and straight and goes around the tops of the plastic piece. The straight spring goes in with the crossbar facing on the outside of the washer. The latch with the L spring fits in between the plastic crossbar with the U shaped end pressing against the latches inside bar. The antenna of the L spring needs to wrap around the plastic bar and fit inside the straight spring bar. This applies pressure on the latch to stay closed. When the handle is pulled, it releases the pressure and allows you to open the door. The Metal bar is used to hold all the pieces together and once you have the alignment right, put it back into the door with the straight spring antenna tucked in the spots on the door, as well as the metal bar ends. Screw in the two spots that holds the assembly in place and you will be set. The door should open and shut easily.

We broke the door handle on our Malber 1000 Can we order a new one and can we fix it ourselves?


Mike, in Washington D.C., again. Of course you can do it yourself. First call Joel (Malber in NY) at 800-600-8913 or 516-294-6660 . Tell him which model machine you need a door latch for (if you aren't sure, check label in rear). Once you've received your new latch assy (about $20): Open door, and notice white plastic "ring" around glass is actually 2 pieces (front and rear) snapped together - with a seam around periphery. Unsnap (separate) them by either getting your fingernails into the seam and pulling them apart - or prying them open with a spackle knife or thin screwdriver blade. Once it starts coming apart, just work the opening all the way around. Remove front "ring" and set aside. Using a 1.5mm Torx screwdriver, remove 2 small screws holding broken latch assy. Note the way the ends of the spring go under the 2 screws. That's the way it has to go back. Slip new latch assy into place, pressing vertical "hinge pin" and ends of spring into slots (near screw holes). Replace 2 screws. Test latch with door open - is it working? Try closing door. All good? Replace front "ring": Open door and, while pulling out on latch handle, slip the ring over the latch handle and get it into approximate position. Let go of latch (it snaps into "closed" position) and adjust ring so it doesn't bind the latch handle (meaning it's free to move). Now, beginning anywhere on outside edge, begin snapping rings together - and continue all the way around. Test that door latch still operates smoothly and that door latches shut properly. FYI: There is no adjustment for this latch assy - it just fits precisely where it's supposed to. Good luck and God Bless ...

Broken catch


what has happened is that the ridiculously flimsy plastic that the catch spring pushes against has snapped off. I tried getting it plastic welded but still too weak finaly I took off the door unscrewed the transparent central part(remembering to keep the little black plastic rod at the top that operates the microswich when the door closes then snapped off a piece of hacksaw blade about15 mm long and put it where the plastic had been. I carefully lifted the end of the spring over the blade and while holding it screwed back the transparent part so that it held the blade in place. Works really well!

Door does not lock shut but machine still works. Is it easy to repair?


Exactly the same happened to our Hotpoint FWD70. The spring that holds the door latch in place has snapped. I removed all screws out of the door to find the spring and the metal rod it hooks onto and bend another hook into it (I didn't have a replacement spring), put it back together and the door works fine, although for some reason the dishwasher tablet doesn't release now!!

Getting a small plastic piece out of a door


If the piece is jammed (locked) in the door latch assembly, there is a manual release that you can use to open the door latch to see if the piece will come from free. The following link advises:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

This may require two people. One to pull on the manual release, while the other works on retrieving the broken piece from the door latch.

Another method may be to remove the door latch assembly so you can easily manipulate it outside the machine. This link explains how to remove the door latch assembly:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587965-door_latch_replacement_fdl_error

Now...if the piece is jammed too far inside the door latch assembly, a last resort would be to replace the latch. I hope it does not come to that, but it may be a last resort. The link provided will give you all the necessary steps to complete this repair, if required.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Broken door handle...


I have the same problem and I have a makeshift solution which I was able to do in 45 minutes and total cost was less than $1.

Step 1: Remove door from machine.
Step 2: Disassemble door with the two plastic donut shells. This means removing 6 or so flathead screws. Take care to note alignment of glass parts because they aren't perfect circles and only fit one way.
Step 3: Pull out pin that threads the spring and broken plastic handle remnant and metal latch piece.
Step 4: Discard broken plastic and replace the rest of the apparatus. The metal latch can move up and down, but that's ok.
Step 5: Purchase a paint-can opener:
http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/525566/2/istockphoto_525566_opener_for_paint_can.jpg
Step 6: Re-attach door.
Step 7: You can use the paint-can opener to the right of the latch to lever-open and lever close the latch in order to open and close the door.

Cheap, easy. Not pretty at all. Definitely something your friends would make fun of you for doing, but it saves you $1,000 of a new machine, in this economy.

Door Latch has broken plastic tab


The door latch assembly comes as one piece. It would actually be much simpler to purchase the new latch and replace the whole assembly instead of trying to put pieces and parts back inside a latch that may or may not work after all your hard effort. If you decide to replace the latch, follow these steps: 1. Unplug the machine. 2. Remove the lower kick plate panel if you like (this can help you reach the latch from a couple of different angles). 3. Open door and feel around the rubber door boot for a wire hoop. At the bottom of the door open is a tension spring. Pull the spring apart and remove the wire hoop from the groove. 4. Gently lift the rubber boot from the groove around the door opening and push inside the machine so you can access the inside of the casing. 5. The door latch assembly is located inside the case on the right-hand side. There should be a couple of wire connectors going to it (remember how they come off). Be careful with the wires, they are small and can break. 6. Unplug the wire connectors and remove the three screws holding the latch in place from the outside of the casing. 7. There should also be a plastic retainer holding the latch in place. Remove latch from retainer. 8. Install new door latch by placing it in the plastic retainer, first. 9. Plug wires connectors in. 10. Re-install the three door latch screws. 11. Re-install rubber door boot around the door opening. Make sure it is properly seated in the groove. 12. Reinsert wire hoop. starting at the top of the door opening, carefully push the wire hoop into the groove and work your way all the way around the bottom where the tension spring would be. (A second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in replace would be handy at this point). 13. Pull tension spring apart and snap into groove. Done. Hopefully this will take care of your problems. Of course, you may not like the idea of having to purchase a whole new door latch assembly, or the effort required to remove and replace. But, it sure beats trying to rebuild the old one. I hope this helps.
