Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

The computer is on the fritz in my front loading "Duet" washer. I was washing some clothes and the door won't open - they can't send a repairman until Friday and this happened on Monday. I need to get the wet clothes out and I've tried everything the instruction book said. PLEASE HELP before my clothes ruin.

You need to access the manual release for the door. Click on the following link for instructions on how to do this:

In some cases simply using the manual release will reset or clear the problem. Once you get your clothes out, try running the washer with no load to see if it will run error free. You may be able to cancel that service call.

Our whirlpool front load washer will not open, even when the "done" light is lit. Any suggestions on how to get my clothes out?


Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.
