My fromt loader buzzes while running.

Usually, the door remains locked until the cycle is over. Now, it can be opened at any time and buzzes for the entire wash/rinse/spin cycle.

See above. The moving part of the solenoid latch may have stuck, that's where the buzzing comes from.

It will also buzz if it's blocked, by distortion of the plastic latch. On the door, observe that there are two plastic protrusions. The upper one is the 'soft latch' that keeps it closed when it's off. The lower one is the 'hard latch' that locks when it's running. Both the plastic protrusions are somewhat fragile and subject to breaking. They're also VERY easy to replace, just the two screws at the top and bottom.

Try some WD40 on the mechanism of the lock, not on door. And open & close a few times, while disconnected from the mains.

I have a front loader washer and can not get it off of locked door what can I do so it opens


A model would be nice. On my Frigidaire Gallery, you have to press and hold the Options and Select buttons until it unlocks. Unplugging didn't work for me, so one time I had to run a cycle until it finished to get the door unlocked - it didn't like being stopped mid-cycle. Another time, I unplugged it for a good while until it reset. I wouldn't try to force it open, you will break something you don't want to have to replace.

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

Bosch front loader washing machine door not opening


The door will not open if the machine detects excess water in it. Run the drain or spin cycle to check if water is being expelled. If necessary check the pump filter for obstructions and the outlet hose for blockages. If this does not work you may have a problem with the pressure system, the door lock itself or a crack or break in the handle and it is not catching the lock mechanism, let me know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

I have a two-year old Frigidaire GLTF2940FSO front loader washer that has stopped in the middle of a load leaving water in the drum and will produce a buzzing sound no matter what cycle you put it on. We...


did you try unplugging it and plugging it back in to see if you can get it to reset? Would it buzz when you try to drain it? Does the door latch lock when it goes into the wash cycle? Usually the door latch locks when it goes into the wash cycle and stays locked. So it filled up, the door latch should lock, then should go into wash cycle. Then you said few minutes later it stops. How did you get the door open? reason i ask is Usually i would see the clothes get stuck inside the washer because the door latch is still locked when it stops. Was the door unlocked when it stoped. If so maybe something going on with the communication from the board to the door latch maybe. Did you try operatin the drain?
