Try stepping through the program, or unplugging the machine to release the door. Using a wet-vac on the drain line should pull most of the water out depending on the position of the program.

Tip

My Miele washing machine is locked.


Recently I received many requests from users in troubles because they could not unlock their washing machine.

I decided to publish a tip illustrating the unlock procedure.

These instructions apply to most Miele front loading washing machines. They will work on all the W4800 series washers.
Instructions on how to set on and off your Miele’s child lock function are also contained in the user manual.

If you attempt to open the door while the Child Lock function is activated you will get the message "Machine locked" and the picture below on display:

fcd46c0.gif


If the door lock is locked during the wash cycle, press the pause button, and the door will open.

In order to deactivate the Child Lock:

  • Press and hold the "Heavy Soil" button until the display shows an unlocked pad lock picture and says Ready to Use (hold up to ten seconds, it should be less).

If you want to re-activate the Child Lock:

  • Press and hold the "Heavy Soil" again, until the display shows a locked pad lock picture and says Ready to Use .



The drum door cannot be opened, and the machine may stay locked if one of conditions below is occurring:

  1. The water temperature is more than 55°C (130°F).
  2. The water level is too high.
  3. The Child Lock function is activated.
  4. There is a fault.

If the washer is in one of the above conditions, you will get the machine locking even if child lock is off.

If the door is locked because of a fault, and there is water in the drum, the machine will also lock up.

In that case the door will open only after accessing the drain pump.
The pump service door is opened using a tool stored behind the dispenser drawer.

The tool must be used only after disconnecting power.

I think I will post a detailed procedure on how to fix a blocked drain pump on the next tip.

I hope this tip has helped you to fix your problem.

Goodbye.

My simpson eziloader machine won't start - when I press the start button it clunks a couple of times then nothing - water won't enter have checked the inlet pipes


sounds like blocked pump or door latch sensor/switch more likely pump blocked.thats normally first to activate in wash cycle.if unsure seek help to locate and check.it ll be either accessable from bottom front of machine or you may need to tip it up as it ll be at bottom of machine.unplug first,and if you pull pipes off pump to access there will be some water.hold waste pipe as low as itll go to release any water left in machine

A key has appeared on the display panel and the machine won't work. What does this mean?


The key icon indicated that the door is locked(is that so cn you open door) most likely the door wont open once cycle is complete is because not all the water has drained,usually that occurs due to the screen on the pump filter being blocked, to clean that blockage access the pump via the door on bottom of front panel or by removing kick(toe)plate and you will see a small black plastic corregated hose,remove the plug from it and catch water into a bucket,pan or bowl ect,once all water is drained unscrew the lint screen located near that hose and clean what is blocking it

I have a samsung front load washer that is displaying 5E and door is locked wont open, i tried turning it off and door still wont un lock


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

Door on washing machine is locked with e20 code


This particular code is used when the machine detects a pump problem or water draining problem. In this case, the fault would occurr just before attempting to spin. It turned out to be a blocked filter, accessible from the bottom front of the machine. so the best thing to do is clean the filter on the front of the machine open the flap and undo the filter water will come out so be ready for that. after it is cleaned and filter all back in and secure switch machine back on at plug and run cycle this should fix it. hope this helps.
Here are some error codes for future problems. E10 - not filling
E20 - not draining
E40 - door open
EFO - Filter blocked

My whirlpool duet washer will not complete a cycle, it isn't spinning/draining and now door is locked & will not open. I tried unplugging it & plugging it back in but no luck..... What should I...


While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes to try the door. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

How abt a nice rating for the free help? Thnks

Door locked and will not open. i ran an empty cycle to see if that would work and it doesn't.....thanks! Margit


IF water is left in machine then door wont unlock, check pump, run drain cycle. If pump runs but doesnt remove water, then check filter at bottom (small door on bottom front) water will come out when this is done. If washer is completely empty of water and door locked then you may access lock release tab from bottom or reaching down from top to lock asm. Then check lock
