Hiya
there is a good chance that the load has "bust" the door lock or maybe just snapped the door ******(part thats on the door itself)
if the ****** is ok, you will need to replace the door lock.

hope this helps

    hi

    sorry misread your question, you get to the doorlock by removing the retaining band around the front of the rubber door seal, then folding it back into the drum, loosen the two screws and disconnect the wiring block.

    refitting is the reverse.



    REMEMBER TO UNPLUG IT FROM THE MAINS FIRST.

I was using the spin cycle to spin water from a scarf. I decided to stop the stop so I hit cancel button. Now the washer door is locked and I can't open it.


• If the cycle is interrupted during spin, it will take approximately 2-3 minutes for the door lock to release. DO NOT force open the door. • To stop the washer, press Cancel.

My GE Washer Door Won't Lock


Try this, press the pause/cancel button twice. Open the door, ensure there is nothing blocking the door and close the door fully. Open the detergent drawer fully and re-close the drawer. Select Quick wash and press start.

If this does not correct the problem, call for service under warranty.

Adding clothes after wash started


It is best to finalise what clothes you want to wash, regarding front loaders. Or if you stop the machine, you have to wait for a couple of minutes for the door mechanism to release the lock, before u try the door. At times the door won't open for there is water in there; & if you force the door you'll damage the door assembly. So a lot of caution here!

Stopped operating in the spin cycle


With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
