To Manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened.

Door will not lock to start wash cycl


This sounds like a classic door lock problem. There was a design change in the lock assembly because of numerous problems.
You say you had the door replaced, did they replace the lock assy also?
The control puts power to the wax motor that operates the latch. As the door locks, the latch activates the lock switch that tells the control the door is locked.
What kind of reading are you getting on the lock switch?
Thanks/Mike

How do I fix the front load washer when it flashes E-40?


This is normally due to the door lock failing. If you remove the clamp holding the door seal on the front.
Then peel the seal back and remove the 2 screws holding the door lock on. You can change the lock from there and hopefully this will sort the problem out.

However if still doing the same after changing the lock then the control board will be faulty. But 9 times out of 10 for this fault its the door lock thats the problem. You can get the part from here or your local spares center: washing-machine-door-inte.

Hope helps.

DOOR WILL NOT LOCK


assuming that you didfi not unwire ther door lock, the problem is probably just that the door seal just needs bedding in and you should be able to start by closing more firmly and pushing in till the door lock catches. did you properly seat the door boot on the cabinet?
