If you have a wet dry shop vac you can use it to remove the water from the unit.
Attach the vac to the end of the drain hose and remove the water once the water is removed then you will unplug the unit for a few seconds plug it back in and you should be able to unlock the door.

If that works then you will need to check the drain pump and hoses for any obstructions that may be restricting the flow of water.

    There is no water in my washer and the detergent was never dispensed either. The F-28 just keeps flashing and despite having unplugged the machine for 2 days, it still will not reset and allow me to open the door when I plug it back in.

Most lock out companies use a long metal rod that is inserted through the top of the door and is then used to push the power door lock button or the lock button. If you gently pull on the top of the door and insert a wedge to keep the door ajar slightly, you can use a coat hanger and manoevere it to touch the door lock button

Took my 2008 silverado to have it detailed, when I got it back all seats and carpeting were soaking wet, when i got it home to park it in the heated building to dry noticed the door locks didn't work and...


I'm sorry to hear about the troubles you are experiencing with your Silverado Jeanette. It sounds like the detailer may have gotten liquid inside the driver's door panel/armrest. Since you say the door locks still work with the fob and all the fuses checked good then I can only assume water intrusion in these switches is the problem. Water could also cause the speaker to short out and become non-functional. This year model truck is notorious for door lock actuator, power mirror, and speaker failure. I've had to replace all on my 2008 Silverado along with the mirror switch. There are several good videos posted on YouTube on how to troubleshoot these problems which may be helpful if you are a DIY kind of person. Otherwise you'll have to take it to a trustworthy mechanic to do the troubleshooting and repairs for you. Hopefully you know someone who is good at this sort of thing because the dealerships will charge you a small fortune to repair them. Have you contacted the detailer to see what he may do to help with the cost? It couldn't hurt!

How do I unlock my 2008 Chevy Silverado Truck?


Slim Jims won't work on the door. There is a tool called The BigEasy unlock tool. You sneak it between the jam and door frame and hook it on the lock knob and pull it to unlock the door or push the power lock button to unlock the door.

The battery is dead on my 2008 Ford Taurus X, the doors are locked and my keys won't unlock the door. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I've already tried the key less entry. That is...


I hate the way they have incorporated these new alarm systems so that you cant open the doors when the battery is dead, some cars will lock you inside unable to open door from inside. The electric door locks are what is keeping you from being able to unlock doors. Some people go to Auto Zone and rent the tool that can be slid into the door by way of the window opening, this doesn't always work. the best way to get in is to go under the car with a set of jumper cables and charge the battery from the large battery cable that is connected to the starter.. charge battery enough to access door locks P.s. it wont take much power to use key to unlock door after the battery has a small charge..

2008 chevrolet malibu door lock problem


My girlfriend has a 2008 Malibu. The door locks began to falter one by one until three of the locks had to be operated manually or by using a key. I checked the fuses, the BCM and the lubrication on the locks. The door lock actuators were the real problem. She was quoted about $1000 to fix the problem and replace all three of the bad actuator/ door lock assemblies through the dealer. I called and got a price of $125 for the front door and $105 for each of the back doors from the dealer. I was able to fix all three door locks in about three hours myself. It took a few star end bits, a 10 mm socket and a regular phillips screwdriver to get the job done. It has been two weeks now and she is ecstatic that the problem has been fixed and she saved about $750. This seems to be a common problem with this car, when ordering make sure you have the VIN number of the car you are working on to ensure you get the right part. Depending on the year of the vehicle there was a production date split for these parts.
