You may have a problem with the switch jamming up.  You can open the door but you will have to pull very hard.  It may break the latch so be prepared to replace it.

Door stuck closed after wash is done


If the water in the machine is above a certain level a fail safe on the door lock will not allow it to be opened. Check the filter, make sure the machine has completely drained. Obviously, there may be a problem with the lock itself but try this first.
All the best

Door won't open and I can't find the release


I'm talking about machines used in Europe. It is normal that you cannot open the door few minutes after finishing. It is protection from electrostatic electricity. But if you still cannot open the door call authorised service. What type of machine it is about? Some solutions used to be offered in manuals.

I have a front loading Bosch washing machine and it was working fine on Friday. On Saturday morning I went to take a load of clothes out and the door won't open - I am getting an E13 signal. My...


Hi!

The door lock uses electrical power to keep the door closed. Unplug the machine from electrical power and the lock will be released in a couple of minutes. Please be sure not to flood the room if the water level inside is above the door level.

Regarding the E13 error itself, it means too long draining time, and it can be caused commonly by something stuck in the drain filter. To get to this filter and clean it, you have to look at the lower part of the machine and remove the circular panel, then insert a little screwdriver into the hole and twist , the acces pannel will get open. Now twist the handle of the filter and pull it out. Now it can be cleaned. CAUTION: opening the filter will cause all water inside the machine to get out, so have some towels handy to avoid water to spread all over the floor.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

The door is jammed on my LG Intellowasher WD-1023C-Washing Machine - Front loader. It has finished it's wash cycle, but the door won't open


Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!

LG FRONT LOAD WASHER MODEL. WD1238C. DOOR WONT OPEN, THE MACHINE CAN PERFORM NORMAL WASHING FUNCTIONS AND FINISHES ASPER NORMAL, THE DOOR JUST WONT OPEN. CHILD LOCK NOT ON...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

(It COULD be that there is water still inside which is why the machine keeps the door locked. It therefore could be a problem with the drain filter or the drain motor. I'm having to guess!)

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

My bendix washing machine door does not open after wash cycle ha finished


  1. Is there still water in the machine when the wash cycle has finished? If so, the door doesn't open because there is still water in the machine. Try clearing the filter at the bottom of the machine, in the front. If this doesn't work, check that the drain hoses are cleared. If it still doesn't work, try replacing the drain pump.
  2. Is the "door" light still on? You may have a faulty door lock assembly, or your control board may be faulty.

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause


I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

Spin cycle complete; door refuses to open


check if the water has completely emptied - maybe the filter needs clearing.
otherwise. switch off mains. take top off. feel down the front of the machine to the door lock. you can usually find the peg and operate it with thumb nail but difficult
i assume you have'nt broken the door handle

Cycle finished but door won't unlock, please help


normally, front loading machines have this bypass cables in case this things happens, if there is a small opening at the front to acces the drain filter, open it up then look for a small plastic pc with a ring at the end. this is the pull release cable of the door lock. pull it downwards and the door will be released.

if you do not have the small opening to access the drain filter, you can tilt the machine to its back, ( be carefull, its very heavy) then reach for the plastic ring underneath to pull to release the door lock.

tnx 4 using fixya..
