Open the access panel on the front by sticking a nail in the hole and popping it open, and inside the area you will see a thin white plastic pull tab that goes up to the latch. Pull this down and pull the door open. it should open very easily, if not make sure you are pulling the tab all the way down

Check the door lock motor and switch assembly to ensure that the switch works correctly. Check with Ohm meter to ensure continuity when operated.

LG Frontloader WD 1023c door not opening


If it won't unlock when powered down for a couple of minutes you will have to unplug the machine and then remove the top lid. you will then be able to access the rear of the door lock and pull the locking switch back to allow the door to be opened.

I pushed the 'pause' button during the wash cycle of my LG WD-3274HD and now the door won't open.


Hi!

The machine knows it dint't finish the washing cycle, and, because it may be possible that water is still a lot inside, the door is locked.
If you are shure the door can be opened without the water coming out by the door, simply disconnect it from the electrical supply and wait a few minutes until the door unlocks. (you will hear the unlock click)

Good luck!

I load the clothes into the washing machine, I turn it on select cycle and the door locks and will NOT unlock. The door will however unlock after the cycle is finished.


Not sure if you're unable to open the door AFTER you stop the cycle. That may be normal operation as a safety measure (won't open until after your cycle has completed). However, if your model DOES allow for opening the door during cycle operations then your electronic door lock may be defective.

Hello. I have an LG intellowasher front loader wd-8015c which has finished its cycle but the door will not open.... how can I get it to manually open? I have tried doing another rinse cycle and pumped out...


If you've waited the normal time for the interlock to allow the door to open and it's still locked, the interlock switch itself is probably faulty. Tricky job. Best to find a repair technician........Nomess

Lg wd-8013, all lights on at end of cycle door wont open


It sounds like you have a faulty interlock. This is what locks the door during the wash cycle.Sometimes they won't unlock and need to be replaced. There may be a pull tab inside the pump access area at floor level to get door open....Not a big job for a tech......Nomess

My lg door will not unlock


this kind of door lock is called PTC door lock.It is designed for protecing you from opening the dooe during the washing and spining cycles which may hurt you.So, if you want to open the dooe during cycles,pls press "stop",then ,wait 2 mins,you will be able to open it by then.the other situation is that,the power is cut off during working cycles,solution is:re-start the washer and directly open the door.Pls note that this kind of lock has to work under power

Indesit wd 125. Wash cycle had finished, door lock was off but


Unplug machine, take lid off and locate the door lock. You will have to use a small screwdriver or something to release the lock. Then replace your door handle.

I have a front loading LG washing machine approximately 2 years old and now it will not unlock the door when the cycle is finished. The child lock is not on and there is no water in the tub but the door...


you will need to manually unlock the door... remove the top two screws in the back ..reach way down at the bottom of the door lock there is a pull down on the lock it will release the door... if your arms are not long enough use a bent coat hanger....once you have the door open .. remove the wire around the gasket .. remove outer gasket unscrew door lock. unplug wires and replace door lock...

hope it helps
