Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Disconnect power then manually unlock the door and restart cycle. Post back happens next after a cycle is restarted.
Whirlpool-made Front Loading washing machines use a door lock and switch assembly having a tab that can be pulled manually for emergency opening of the door. This tab can be accessed with the removal of the lower front access panel
Remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.
Once the panel is off, reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly on the right side. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab then gently pull it down until a click is heard, and then open the door.
The door lock and switch assembly may need to be replaced if the problem persists. The replacement procedure is here.
