How to get the door open:

Thread a shoelace between the door and the front of the machine from the top, over the latch on the middle right and to the bottom. Pull both ends of the shoelace towards the hinge on the left and this will manually pull open the latch with NO DAMAGE. Once open you can access the screws to remove the mechanism and simply buy a replacement.

LG, bloody hopeless support and no simple way to rectify this problem in the manual when it's so easy once you know.

My washer had a CL error and the door will not open. I can't even turn it on or press the door lock. Nothing is happening


Child lock has been activated in your washer.

Please press Temp and Option button together in your washer for about 5 seconds after you turn on the washer.

If you do not have these two buttons check whether you have any button with a child's face as symbol , press and hold that for 5 seconds.

Lg wd-8013, all lights on at end of cycle door wont open


It sounds like you have a faulty interlock. This is what locks the door during the wash cycle.Sometimes they won't unlock and need to be replaced. There may be a pull tab inside the pump access area at floor level to get door open....Not a big job for a tech......Nomess

Top loader door wont open


Something has caused the washer to not release the door. Is there an error code that is flashing (FE?). A locked door can be due to too much water in the basket, suds causing false water detection (should be using HE), or perhaps the drain is clogged.

If you are sure that the water is not going to spill out on floor, then you might be able to get door open by unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes (mine took an hour) for the electric lock to release.

Lg wd-8013c washer door latch broken. Is there an emergency release?


Hi,

Run a shoelace between the door and the face of the washing machine, starting at the top, over the latch on the middle of the right hand side and down to the bottom.

Pull both ends of the shoelace towards the hinge on the left.

This pulls open the latch with NO DAMAGE and allows access to the screws that remove the latch mechanism. Easily ordered and installed with two screws and a plug to reattach.

LG give no support or reference to this easy procedure in their manual. SHAME!

sometimes you just have to force the door but first try hitting the machine near the door lock sometimes this helps the door interlock may be stuck in the closed position
