Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump, maybe a sock. Remove the front panel by sticking a small screwdriver or putty knife just above the front panel to release 2 clips. Drain pump is located bottom right with 2 hoses connected to it. Drain the machine and remove the hoses. Check for obstructions.

SOURCE: The door on my front end Whirpool Duet Washer will not open?

Plug off the mains. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. There is a drain hose here, disconnect & drain out. There could be a lot of water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
For some front loader models after removing the panel, the filter is in the compartment having the white screw able lid. The big hose from the bottom of your tub leads to this compartment.

For the door to unlock, press & hold 'end of cycle' for 3 seconds, power shd be on for this, try door after 2 minutes. Your machine may not open if there is water inside, so first drain.

SOURCE: my Maytag front end loading washer is stuck locked

Open the detergen/bleach diospenser cover and there is a tab there that you can pull to open the door. You will likely need to replace the wax motor and control board.

The locking mechanism seems to be stuck on my Frigidaire front loading washing machine. When the door is closed it buzzes and machine won't start.


Hello Craig, thank you for your post!

I understand that the door lock on your washer is stuck and washer will not operate. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately 2 minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer will start. If your washer will not operate then it possibly have a faulty door lock assembly or a communication problem with the control board. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website.

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to assist you!

Frigidaire front load washer that will not start . it just buzzes. when it does start it stops after washing and leaves water in clothes asn buzzes.


it could either be a bad door switch or something stuck in the pump or a bad pump.if you set it to drain/spin will it drain out the water or does it buzz there?if it does drain i'd have to say you have a bad door switch.the model number you sent doesn't come up,you can unplug the machine,remove the hose that goes to the pump or run it before you unplug it and see if it's the pump making the sound or if the center of the pump can be removed to clean out the pump and check the pump for coins and junk,use a shop vac and vac out all the water in the tub and then lossen the hose or center of pump until water starts to leak out and vac it up as it comes out,check the pump and put it back together,add some water with a bucket or something and see if it drains out,if it doesn't drain and it sounds like the pump is making the noise you have a bad pump,if it buzzes and it's not the pump change out the door switch.the buzzing is electrical,things that could make this sound are the motor,the solenoids on the water valve or the door switch,if you can do some checks like see if it drains or try to find where the noise is coming from would be helpful.good luck and i hope this helps you out.

Makes buzzing noise and won't spin or drain


Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump.  If nothing is stuck in the pump replace the pump.  It won't spin until it drains, so fixing the drain problem will fix the spin.  You can get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel.

I have a two-year old Frigidaire GLTF2940FSO front loader washer that has stopped in the middle of a load leaving water in the drum and will produce a buzzing sound no matter what cycle you put it on. We...


did you try unplugging it and plugging it back in to see if you can get it to reset? Would it buzz when you try to drain it? Does the door latch lock when it goes into the wash cycle? Usually the door latch locks when it goes into the wash cycle and stays locked. So it filled up, the door latch should lock, then should go into wash cycle. Then you said few minutes later it stops. How did you get the door open? reason i ask is Usually i would see the clothes get stuck inside the washer because the door latch is still locked when it stops. Was the door unlocked when it stoped. If so maybe something going on with the communication from the board to the door latch maybe. Did you try operatin the drain?
