If you can open the top portion of the unit, reach down near the front lock of the unit and feel a ring at the bottom part and pull it down to manually open the door. i hope i solve your problem,

After washing machine end cant open front door to remove washed clothes


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
In your case you might have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.

Door lock will not release after the washing cycle has finnished


sounds like a faulty saftey lock mechanism could try turning power of from wall socket somtimes it allows the lock to reset it will fail next time the machine is used so it still need attention (the safty lock is held in place by a electrical current by removing the current the door lock may return to its normal state that is unless its stuck in lock postion, if it is you could try turning of all power and stiking the area nera the lock to encourage its release i cant tell you how hard to bang it just a sensible bang if you dont feel confident about banging the machine its time fot ht e engineer

if there there are no clothes stuck in the machine i would recomend the engineer to call this procedure is only an attempt to allow the removal of trapped clothing

Musty/Mildew smelling clothes...


lg has a known problem with smelly mildew cloths. If you call LG they will tell you its not there problem. Cheapest solution is to wash door gasket with some clorox and then betwen washes leave door open. On the washing supply shelves there is a product you put in the washing machine run a wash without cloths and it does the same thing except it costs $7.If you bought it a t Lowes go back and ***** to store manager my friend did exactly that and got the machinje replaced

Can't get locked door open


For the door locking problem, on several of the Bosch washers, there is a round plate at the front bottom with a hole in it. One can place a thin phillips screw driver or some thing that goes in and turn the plate while pressing the plastic latch behind the hole to open the plate.

There is a mecahnical door lock release mechanism you can see or reach inside. Open the washer door while pulling on that. You can atleast get to your clothes inside.

There is a filter/drain mechanism inside this area. The manual and the postings here suggest a few more things you can do further to remove junk/blockages in this, but that is a messy job.
