Here's where you can find the part you need for your machine.

Also on the left pane are lists of Brand names, select Samsung then washing Machines. Select the model of your machine (J1045iW-XSA) then look for the door lock part.

You will need to loock from the bottom to get acess to the door swittch. The gravity of the jamming of the lock will depend on who it is stuck inside.
If you are tech savvy then you open this section and release the lock. This type latch on type locks are available but the end switch settings must also be present so as to have the safety mechanism of shutting machine when the door is opened or the door will be latched during wash rinse cycle and will be released only afterr the end cycle,
So this link of the door latch must confirm to the original or else get help from Samsung.

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

Front loader iwll not start DE error code Samsung model J1045


this means door error sometimes you have to rewire it, replace the computer & the door interlock all at the same time to fix it try the door interlock first beware sometimes if you dont do it all at once the new part gets taken out as well so fingers crossed its just the door interlock.best option to have samsung service agent out to check out with diagnostic tools.

My neptune frontend loader will flash the door lock for 2 seconds and then it will go off when ever i start the machine, i think my child opened it with out turning it off.. is something broken


HI- It is possible that the door lock was damaged if someone forced it open mid-cycle. The machine will not cycle unless the door lock engages. Will probably need a to get a Tech out to have a look. Good luck.

Broken front door


you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck
