Try all the previous posts (probably in order too). But if all else fails, use a flat, thin, flexible, wide blade (I used a butter knife). Slide this blade between the door & the body, where the latch is (on the right hand side of the door, centre height), sliding the blade towards the centre of the unit ie right to left. This will push the latch back allowing the door to be opened.

Use a thin utensil like an egg spatula to slide in the gap between the door and machine and push the door trigger to the left, if the door is on lock mode put it on a 2 minute cycle to finish the load and then try again

Turn the machine completely off once it's finished it's cycle and free of water, leave it off for an hour or more, then try it. Pushing the door inwards first slighty with your knee and then grabbing the handle and it should release. Good luck

Try pushing on the door and opening at the same time, gently nudge it upwards.
Tempo will send you a new handle, that you need to install and they'll charge you $15 for it.
The quality is lowsy on the handles, they are plastic and break too easily. Keep ringing them til you get a replacement handle, they are very very very slow.

I find pushing gently on the door (as if to close it) frees up the mechanism and allows opening.

I think you will find that it is still in programme running mode and the dor safety interlock is activted. What I did was turn off the power for at least 15 minutes. Then the door interlock should have deactivated.

If the programme has locked up the machine mid cycle take the power lead out of the power point and touch the three pin plug ON THE END OF THE POWER LEAD COMING OUT OF THE WASHING MACHINE and touch all three pins onto a metal surface or use a metal utensil to touch them (they need to be all touched at the same time) that is shorted out electrically and this CAN discharge the capacitor on the computer board that is supplying a very small voltage to keep the memory stored. Shorting out the plug (NOT THE WALL SOCKET) may be a solution.

Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!

LUMINA WM3011. Front Loader. I put in a load of washing, pushed start (quick cycle) then bad decision quickly opened door! Now cycle won't finish completely. Bring up error message of EO3 - don't know...


OK, I can't find anything on this machine for free. Do you have a user manual?
If not, try this. Unplug the machine, wait 30 seconds, plug the machine back in. At this point, I would think the machine would go back to a default setting. You should then be able to try to restart the cycle.
Good Luck, let me know how it goes.

The door on my front end Whirpool Duet Washer will not open?


Plug off the mains. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. There is a drain hose here, disconnect & drain out. There could be a lot of water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
For some front loader models after removing the panel, the filter is in the compartment having the white screw able lid. The big hose from the bottom of your tub leads to this compartment.

For the door to unlock, press & hold 'end of cycle' for 3 seconds, power shd be on for this, try door after 2 minutes. Your machine may not open if there is water inside, so first drain.

FRONT LOADER DOOR LOCK WONT OPEN OR JAMMED


On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
