My samsung door lock wouldn't let me open the door no matter what we tried. We unplugged it, turned off the power, ran the spin cycle again. The LO symbol came on and wouldn't allow the door to unlock. We took off the top panel and noticed by the front of the interior cavity by the door lock, a plug had come unplugged. We plugged it in and bingo, problem solved!! Thanks for being *** samsung.

Some washing machines have a mechanical/cable release hanging down underneath, perhaps behind the kick tray thing. the cable is attaches to the pulley at the back and it needs to push against the belt squarely to enable the door to open, otherwise, (after making sure it is unplugged) put you hand down behind the front fascia and lift the moveable part of the doorlock. This will not fix the problem but it will open the door.

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.

An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.
Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.
Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

this is a tachogenerator fault or the drive motor brushes are faulty. you will need a Miele service tech or a Miele service agent to look at this.
