We have a dometic wmd1050 front loader washing machine in caravan we did some washing today went through washing cycle ok lights went out on door lock but can't open door how do we open door


The latch assembly broke so you will need to use a screwdriver to manually release the latch. It will not be easy to get the door open, you will need to get in behind the latch and pry slightly to the left. The parts breakdowns are available below so you can see what you are up against. See the 4th page at the URL below.

I was washing beach towels and during the rinse/spin cycle the door popped open on my whirlpool duet ht (model GHW9400PL4). I haven't been able to close the door since it opened before the cycle was...


those have a 2 latch system, sounds like the second latch that engages during the spin cycle never quite completed the safety lock , you could try and jumper the latch to see if that would release it, But it seems the secondary latch wasn't working properly in the first place, even the heaviest loads shouldn't pop the door open,

Our Samsung J1455AV door won't open, just over a year old. Have cleaned the filter, re-run a cycle, turned off at wall. Help!


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with if the door lock is stuck and wont unlock then you can pry it to open, and just don’t try too hard. The issue can be with the door latch that is stuck, to unlock it you can stick a flat screw driver behind the door latch and then lever it to open so that you don’t have to pry it to open. Once it’s done, please make sure to replace the door latch assembly to avoid any further issues. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My kenmore elite with digital face wont start. just beeps when you hit the start button


Hi,

If the washer beeps when you are trying to start a cycle, the control believes the door is open.

First of all check the hinge area, the door seal and latch/catch area to make sure something is not in the way of the door being fully closed. If it is closing fine and nothing is obstructing, you will most likely need to have the door latch mechanism replaced. If you can send me the full model number from inside the door I can get you an idea of what this might cost.

Door on WD420 will not open


There is an electrically controlled lock on the door that prevents opening while the machine is in operation, and sometimes for a short period after a cycle has finished.

Sometimes this lock can get stuck and requires some persuasion to release.

This may sound odd but try it:

Make a fist with your hand and bang the door, near the latch, with the side of your fist. Do this firmly, but obviously not so hard that you will damage the door or, more importantly, your hand. This can often release the latch that should have released automatically.

Washer will not open after washing cycle ie


Hi:
There is a door locking mechanism that won't let you open the door during certain cycles, and it might be hanging up. After the next time the door sticks, try gently tapping on the door , near the latch area. If the door releases, you need to get that solenoid replaced,

Sliding door problem


You probably have a burnt out door lock soleniod, it's part of the latch, stuck in the locked position, you have to pry the latch from the inside, to release the catch, just replace the latch when done. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

MAYTAG NEPTUNE DOOR LOCKED WILL NOT OPEN!


The comment posted 14 may 2009 it what helped me. DO NOT PRY OPEN the door. Find the release cord inside the soap dispenser,,,you may have to remove the 4 screws and lift it from the washer like i did. I had to lean into the door and pull the cord to release the lock. It was not a system error. The washer was over loaded and although the door was closed and locked...the load pushed the door enough to indicate that it was open and would not wash. After opening the door, rearranging the load and removing some, the door closed and latched locked and was able to continue with the wash. DO NOT PRY OPEN,,,use the cord release first,,,this worked for me.
