Look down the very bottom of the machine you should see a couple screws on the bottom unscrew these and remve the lower panel you may have one screw also in the clean out you will be looking for a type of pull cord that is attached to the door pull the cord and the door will open. if the delay lock is not releasing then you would have to replace the door lock assembly in the unit if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

After washing machine end cant open front door to remove washed clothes


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
In your case you might have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.

Turn the power off and leave for 5-10 minutes then turn on. This should release the door lock the problem could be the pump drain filter is blocked clean this and it should resolve future problems.

Lg wd-8013, all lights on at end of cycle door wont open


It sounds like you have a faulty interlock. This is what locks the door during the wash cycle.Sometimes they won't unlock and need to be replaced. There may be a pull tab inside the pump access area at floor level to get door open....Not a big job for a tech......Nomess

Top loader door wont open


Something has caused the washer to not release the door. Is there an error code that is flashing (FE?). A locked door can be due to too much water in the basket, suds causing false water detection (should be using HE), or perhaps the drain is clogged.

If you are sure that the water is not going to spill out on floor, then you might be able to get door open by unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes (mine took an hour) for the electric lock to release.

I have a front loader washing machine that wont let me open the door even though the wash cycle ended hours ago


could be a door lock problem. try hitting the door lock a couple of times, the latch could release the hook.

another solution if you have your manual, it is stated there how to open manually your door.

there is a plastic hook at the back of the switch with a ring at the end, you can pull the ring down and the door will open.

in order to get to the plastic, you need to remove the front lower panel. remove 3 screws that are holding it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Error display "CL" - what to do?


THe child lock is on. Mine came on for some random reason. On my LG front loader there is a button on the right hand side with a cartoony picture of a child and a padlock. Press this.

sometimes you just have to force the door but first try hitting the machine near the door lock sometimes this helps the door interlock may be stuck in the closed position
