First of all try the reset procedure and see if it helps before proceeding towards troubleshooting:-- Close door
Turn machine on------
Select "Drain/Spin"------
Select "No Spin"------
Press the "Options" button 4 times------
----------
There is a short circuit in the door switch assembly.Its not getting opened due to short in the door switch assembly.You need to get the door switch assembly replaced.But before that open the door by screw driver manually then remove the door lock connections and check the voltage at the door lock switch if its check ok then the door switch is faulty and needs to be replaced.But if the connections checked short then its a short in wires not the switch. Most likely the problem is a bad door lock which has to be replaced. You can find the complete instructions in the Service manual.

- The part number for the lock assembly is AP3837611

Whirlpool duet ht.... Door will not unlock, cancel button turns machine off. will not start, unlock button does nothing. clothes stuck inside, not sure if there is water inside or not, but will not drain...


Hello there and thank you for chosing fixya
Here is a few things to check before you do a manual opening of the door
You may have already done these steps but please try this again in this order ok?

Check to see if the "Add a Garment" light is lit on the Duet's display. The light will only be on during the first eight minutes of a washer cycle, when the function is usable.
Press the "Pause/Cancel" button once to pause the washing cycle and unlock the door.Press the Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle if the "Add a Garment" light is not illuminated. THIS IS A BIGGIE HERE (Wait for the water to drain. The door unlocks once enough water has drained to enable you to safely open the washer door NOW IF THESE STILL DO NOT WORK THEN HERE IS HOW TO MANUALLY OPEN THE DOOR
UNPLUG THE MACHINE
Remove the three screws securing the lower toe panel to the washing machine. The lower toe panel is the small rectangular panel underneath the washer's front door. Pull the panel off the washer once the three screws are removed.Reach up into the front panel of the washer. Feel for the teardrop-shaped tab in the washer's door latch assembly.Pull down on the tab until you hear a click. The click is the sound of the door unlocking.

I was using the spin cycle to spin water from a scarf. I decided to stop the stop so I hit cancel button. Now the washer door is locked and I can't open it.


• If the cycle is interrupted during spin, it will take approximately 2-3 minutes for the door lock to release. DO NOT force open the door. • To stop the washer, press Cancel.

Buzzing noise when pressing start button


does the buzzing noise sound more like a hum, if so could be a bad motor or possibly something stuck in blower wheel.

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
