Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
There is a manual release that you should have used. You may have potentially damaged the door latch assembly now. These door latches can take some punishment but usually don't survive being pulled open or slammed real hard. If you need to replace it, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:
This is an easy repair that anyone can accomplish, if you read and follow the instructions. This can save you the added costs of labor charges from an appliance repair company.
You can find a replacement door latch at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search window and you can locate your part under the "Door Latch Parts" heading on the next page. The part you need is listed as Item number 7 (part #8181700). As I stated before, the purchase price is a far cry cheaper than paying a repairman, and you can repair this yourself.
For your reference: If your door becomes jammed in the future, simply remove the lower panel under the door and reach in behind the front of the cabinet behind the door latch. There is a small round pull tab at the bottom of the latch. Just pull it straight down and the door will open manually. Sometimes these doors will do this. Don't know why...call it a "glitch".
I hope this helps you. Please post back you have further questions.
