Unplug the machine. Remove the bottom access panel (three torx screws along the bottom). Reach up under the area where the door lock is and feel for a round door release mechanism. Pull down and the door will unlock.

Front load duet washer wont start because the door cant lock and we cant open the door.


You need to replace the door lock/switch. It is quite an easy job but is a tight fit behind the front so a bit tricky to get the old one out and the new one in.

Opened door after cycle started not stuck in cycle cant clear to restart


I would have to assume you damaged your door lock assy. You can remove the bottom access panel and there will be a tab you can pull to manually unlock the unit hanging down from the door lock assy. This may work, if this does not work then you will have to replace the door lock assy. The unit will not clear unless the door is unlocked. You could also try to unplug the unit for 10 mins or so to see if it will manually unlock itself.

Hope this helps _MJ_

I couldn't get the washer to start (HE 4T). It


DL stands for Door Lock failure, if your door isnt closing all the way, check to make sure your hinges are lining up and that one of the arms has not broken off on the door, there should be 2 arms going into the door lock. whats common on these is that the door latch has trouble unlocking so it is forced open and now the door latch mechinism is stuck in the locked position and cant re-open. problems with this lock opening and closing- 9 times out of ten, come from a main computer failure to send power to the door lock. this can be temporairily fixed by re-seating the door latch wire harness in the main computer, but its usually recommended to buy a new computer since this problem has been address on the new series of computer. there is no recall on this board at the moment. estimated cost $250-$400

I cant open the door


The door lock solenoid may be stuck. If the unit has a load in it, it could have a piece of clothing stuck in the door latch or too full of a load applying pressure on the door. Try to push the door inward with slight pressure and then pull out. If that does not work try unplugging the unit and then opening the door. The only other option is to remove the panels and manually release the door catch.

Washer door latch stuck, can't open


ahh..time for "Q" from 007, eh? this interlock feature is a relay controlled issue. Seems that your washer is telling you that it's closed. most likely a relay replacement in control panel area.
