    Door wont open after wash, the water has drained, and all indications are that the load has reached the end of the normal cycle. We have re-drained it, turned the mains electric off and on again, but still wont open - what can we do to resolve this problem

  • worried mum Jul 26, 2008

    I have completed a standard load on the standard settings. The machine has notified me with the standard couple of beeps that the washing is complete and I cannot open the door. I ran the Pump cycle and when this was complete the door still would not open. I have run a Rinse&Spin Cycle and the door still will not open. Now 10.30 at night I have turned the machine off - hoping that it will reset itself in the morning :-)

    My Kenmore H2 Plus gave me a code f21 and the door won't open. I've turned it off tried to reset it but it still won't open and it ran longer than the 1 minute it had left on it. I hate this washer

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

I'm afraid I don't have a solution, just the same problem. Exactly this has just happened to me and I don't know what to do. Calling out an engineer will be too expensive and in the mean time, I can't do any washing. Have you had any success yet?
