Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Door wont close

I found advise you gave to another as how to manually release the door lock. My problem is that we can not close the door and since we had to just pull the door open without manually releasing it (i hadn't found this place yet) we are now trying to close it and it won't close.
There seems to be some type of black tab in the middle of the latch on tub that looks like it is in the way. Can you help before I call the repairman and spend at least 150.00 on this?? Thanks! cherie

    Thanks, part has been ordered but it will take 2 weeks to receive--my husband will TRY to fix it. I'll be sitting there reading step by step. I might be back on asking for advice again. Thanks so much, Cherie

I just posted a solution for you on your previous post. I understand that your door will not close. The door latch has probably been damaged. You can try locating the manual release on the door latch assembly and pulling it to see if it resets the latch. Follow this link to see how:

If it doesn't reset, you will need to replace it. Use the link I provided to you previously for the instructions on replacing the door latch. A replacement latch costs approx. $43 and can be repaired by YOU. It's not a difficult repair job at all. You can save quite a bit if you read the instructions I have posted and do this yourself. Don't get discouraged, if you need help I can guide you.

Why is my duet whirpool washer door not cycling through. It seems locked open


Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism. I found this at the Appliance Guru website.

Our schlage lock with thumbturn on inside and keyed on outside. When unlock inside, knob turns freely as if it is really unlocked but if I close door, I get locked out. Please help


Be sure the outside knob is unlocked before closing the door.
Schlage locks do not lock the inside knob or lever. After releasing the turn button, also turn the inside lever or knob, then check the outside knob.
What model of lock is this?

Citroen saxo 1.1 driver door will not open


hi drivers, i am looking into the same fault for my mums Saxo forte. there are three problems as well as the post above about the child lock. (on drivers door, remove the trim panel and cut the poly material away on the end near lock. look in to the right and with the 3 T30 size torx bolts removed, carefully tilt the lock towards you so u can see the white plastic.) the child lock is at the bottom. mums wasn't stuck so i looked further into it and found the handle mechanism to be jammed and broken. this has a linkage rod that needs replacing for a few pounds from Citroen. You will need a 4 mm drill and a rivet gun to change door handle. i fixed this and now door opens and closes and will work with the key. but door wont open from inside using the pull lever. looking closely at the top right of the lock unit check make sure the long link rod is connected at both ends, i have now found that there is a spring or connecting bit that allows the door to open from in car. i am trying to find the right part for this without replacing the lock mechanism at around 70. wen i find this and the door works fully again i will post the fix method.

2007 ford freestar lift gate will not open even though I can hear the lock disengaging. Still feels locked. It is manual open, but cannot lift it, feels locked.


Try pressing the door closed while unlocking and releasing. If the door previously has been slammed shut hard or just due to general wear and tear the latching mechanism can become slightly relocated. This means that when the door closes the door is pressing tighter than normal against the door seal. The compressed door seal will put a lot of strain on the latch mechanism and can hinder its retraction when released. By pressing the door closed and therefore removing the strain due to the door seal you might allow the release mechanism enough freedom of movement to retract when released. If having got the door open then immediately adjust/relocate and lubricate the lock/release mechanism such that you achieve a happy medium of the door closing with a weatherproof seal but not so tightly as to put the latch under a lot of strain.

I had the same problem with mine, I found that the door would open when I lifted the outside handle and at the same time pushed on the door from the outside. (as if closing it) This would let the door latch release.
