SOURCE: samsung front loader door locked and cycle is done

Some units have been built with a fail-safe system that will allow you to open the door only after you unplug and stop the power to the washer. This may not cure the plroblem, but it will get it open and you can address the cause later. Goodluck, Macgivor

SOURCE: Door won't open on Samsung washer

there should be a manual drainage trap door around the bottom of the washer. You just need to open it up and unscrew the cap and hose and the water should just drain itself free.

Be sure to check the insides of where the water is coming out from for debris. If it's dirty, clean it up and you shouldn't have a problem again.

SOURCE: samsung silvercare washer stopped working, won't unlock

My wife uses color sheets in the wash. Guess what jammed up the impeller! It was thin enough to get to the pump intake and wrapped around the impeller blades. Thanks for the tip!!! Saved a bunch of time and money on this fix! Plus made me look good ! ;-)

SOURCE: door won't close/lock

Just had the same issue. The latch, which rotates up and forward, is spring-loaded towards the rear. If 'tripped' to closed position, it cannot rotate back down until it's carrier/hinge slides slightly forward. I bent a sturdy wire into a long 'U', then bent both ends down (~3/8in) and slightly outward to hook over the latch-hinges and pull both sides gently (its plastic) forward, while rotating the latch downward with a small screwdriver. be careful to keep what appears to be a brown plastic button raised, if it pops down from above the latch. Yes, having 4 hands would help, but the 'U' wire can pull from behind the two outer edges with one finger. Once the latch rotates down, release tension on the 'U' wire and extricate it - problem solved.

SOURCE: i have a samsung front

This means your drain is blocked. You may have access to it through the front at the bottom but If you cant access it from the front You will have to tilt the machine back as far as safely possible to access the bottom of the machine. Locate the drain pump which will be at the bottom font or back corner and remove the hose that connects the pump to the tub, you will need to have a basin ready to catch any water. You most likely have a sock or something stuck. Hope this helps

MAH8700 Water and Clothes stuck in washer.. HELP!!


Well its tough to tell exactly what is goin on.... when you are in service mode and press chime it displays how many cycles its done not a command to unlock the door (thats what you were attempting.right?)...559 cycles in a little over a year?? Thats a lot! you do like one a day every day??? Anyway aside from that it sounds like the pump is clogged with foreign objects. Its not easy to service the pump/sump on this new chassis neptune made by samsung. But after 559 cycles theres bound to be some stuff in there. If you feel lke servicing it yourself there is an axcess panel on the bottom and the back or take the whole front off the machine to service. You can try using a shop vac to suck the water out of the drain hose. The control should unlock the door when it sensed the water has drained or so it thinks.

It's STUCK


Hi


The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer. Please post back for any further assistance.

Washer door won't open (hotpoint first editon 800)


I have just had exactly the same problem. 10 seconds of washing, fuse blew, replaced it, cycle completed but now the door lock is stuck on. Like you I tried a new cycle but this has done nothing. In the end (and I'm not suggesting that this a remedy to the problem) I unplugged the machine - pulled the door handle til a gap appeared at the top of the door and forced it open by working a pair of scissors in to the gap and pulling. Of course as soon as I shut the door again and turned on the power the lock light came straight back on the and the door was locked tight. Sorry but this is the best I have come up with short of calling some one out.

Tappan electric range door locked


Check the door lock switch/solenoids. You'll have to unplug the range/stove. Remove the solenoid and check to see if it has continuity or if the solenoids are stuck.
You also might have luck resetting the clean cycle. Even though the lock is engaged, try to open the oven door a little. Start the clean cycle, then cancel it.

Door lock stuck


If the mechanism is jammed, you might have to remove or loosen the entire front panel to reach back to the back side of the lock and work on it.
