Hi there

The door will not open if the washer is still full of water... may be time for a service man to come take a look for you.

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!!!!!

Door of my LG washing machine(front load) is not opeining, Pls advise how to open it, Thanks


If there is water in the machine above a certain level, it will not allow the door to be opened.
To open the door, Open the hatch to the drain pump at the lower left front of the washing machine. If there is water in the machine and you can't put machine in drain, then you can detach the drain hose and drain the water into a container.
make sure that power is disconnected.
With the hatch open, remove the screws holding the red plastic handle in place. Pull the handle and the door will open. Put the handle back into its slot and put screws back in place.

Check the drain pump while you're there to make sure it is free of foreign objects

Door Stuck after wash completed


You will have remove top cover, and release door latch from inside the front, with a screw driver pushing against the latch to open door.
It does mean that you probably have a faulty door lock, or broken door handle.
Please rate my fixya solution.

Washer load became imbalanced and forced door open, now cannot close door, lock stuck and washer will not run


Perhaps you have to change your lock, this is a sensitive point & will affect the smooth operation of your machine. Re. the inbalance, you hv to screw up & lock the front 2 legs (with check nut), adjust the front legs (screwed up) only to see if the machine does not move during wash/spin.
