Neptune front load washer showing code LO. Door


You can try either prying the door open and then replacig the door switch which is probably what caused the problem in the first place. Or try unplugging the machine for several hours, press and hold power button for a few seconds, wait half hour more, plug back in to see if it resets itself.

Can''t get my clothes out... water still inside


does it have a dial that you can manually turn to start the next cycle? You can usually drain the water by pulling the drain hose out from the wall drain behind hte washer....( usually just shoved in the drain not attached) but be aware that when you hold the hose below the water level in your washer it will start to drain. Then perhaps the door will unlatch.

Spin cycle


it sounds like there is either an obstruction in the pump, or the load is getting off balance during the spin cycle. two things to try, fill the washer with no cloths in it, when it starts to agitate, stop the cycle and put it in drain/spin cycle. the water should be out in under a minute. its hard to see because the door locks, but you can hear a difference in the pump when its out, or after 60 seconds, press cancel and open the lid to check. if the waters out in that time, the pumps ok. then run it through the spin diagnostic with a load of cloths. make sure the cloths are wet, and a normal load you wash. this will check to see if the load is getting off balance, and shutting down during the spin cycle. let me know if you still have the problem. good luck, shane

Try running the washer with detergent and a box of baking soda--no clothes--and HOT water. Do you have very hard water in your area?

A string from one of the clothes got stuck in the lock mechanism and the door won't unlock


If the door fails to unlock after 11 attempts, you will see the "LO" code. If this was caused by foreign matter infiltrating the latch area try this. Open the dispenser lid and look for a plastic cord tucked away towards the front. It's the same as "weed whacker" cord. Grasp this cord firmly and pull it from right to left (away from the latch). This is the emergency cord to open the door after a latch failure. remove any debris that would hamper the operation of the latch assembly. Close the door and try going into a spin cycle to check the door lock operation.

5d is actually Sd, which means too many suds. Make sure you're using "he" types of laundry detergent.

WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER


I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.
