SOURCE: Broken front door

you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards

SOURCE: j845 washing machine door won't open

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. Your door lock is broken; actually you have to wait 2 minutes after the wash is over to try the door. If you cannot have access through under the machine, you can try through the top. Some models have a cord behind the dispenser tray.

SOURCE: can't open the kick plate of my samsung j845 washing machine

Happened to me too today. As I was pulling the handle, a piece inside snapped. The handle felt loose, as though it wasn't pulling the catch. To get the door open, I used a screwdriver. I pulled the handle as far out as I could, so that I could get the screwdriver in. The dark black metal part has to be levered away from the washing machine - in the direction the door would open. That will release the catch and then the door will open.

After the door is open, the challenge is to remove the handle. You'll need to undo all 10 (or so - from memory) of the little screws, so that the inner part of the door comes off. Be careful as you get to the last one - things will fall away. The handle and the small broken tab just fell out for me. Once the handle is out, you can put the door back together again. I use a small hex key to help open (and close) the door. With no handle, the catch springs a bit too far over for the door to close, so you'll need something (e.g. 1/8" hex key) to hold it over a little. So now, I can use the washing machine while I try to find a new part.

I don't know if I have the same model SAMSUNG front loader, but I have a similar problem. The door has decided to stay locked at the end of the cycle. I can turn it off and on and even send it through another cycle, but at the end of the washing, it drains, goes to END but does not go the extra step of unlocking, like it usually would about 1min after ending the cycle.

My clothese have been through about 6 different cycles, hoping it will magically clikc open at the end. I assume they are very clean, but getting dizzy.

Any help out there?

Spin cycle wont work and error code 8E comes on display on Samsung Q1235S


It doesn't pump or spinIf it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
