Hi, I have a zanussi wwashing machine model= ghg1200apm. The door won't open. I plugged out the machine after the wash and when i plugged it in again, the door wont open. Can you help me?


The door does not open because there is water inside the machine. To open the door you need to empty the tub first.

To empty the tub disconnect power, open the door at the bottom of the machine's front side, unscrew the drain filter cap and collect water using a container.

Usually that is enough to allow the door to open. If the door does not get released, try running a cycle again.

If still no luck, then the door is locked either because the pressure switch detecting water level is clogged with soap or because the power surge has damaged some component. In that case the machine must be partially disassembled to reach the back of the door opening mechanism. The door latch is reachable either from drain filter access or from top of the appliance.

Emptying water through the drain filter and/or restarting a cycle usually is enough to release the door lock.

Dl F code

Code F/DL - Door Will Not Lock
This is a very common problem with Whirlpool duet front-loading washers. The first thing you need to do is to make sure the door is closed all the way. Clear the code by clearing the control. Then restart the washer and shortly after you should hear clicks coming from the washer. This is the washer attempting to lock the door and will do so 6 times before displaying the code. After you hear the clicks, pull on the door to see if the door is locked or not.

If the door isn't locked remove the top off the washer. Once done you should see the main control or CCU as Whirlpool calls it. On that control you should see 10 plugs on the front lip of the control. Counting from left to right the sixth plug is the door solenoid plug. Make sure that plug is connected on the board good. Also make sure that plug 8 is connected well, in fact make sure all of them are connected but these are the ones that will cause this problem. After doing this clear the display and attempt to use the washer again. If the washer works after doing this I recommend using tie straps to hold the plugs in place. I do this by wrapping two tie straps around the entire control the long way so that one strap holds all the bottom plugs in and the other holds the top plugs in. Note that one tie strap typically isn't long enough to wrap around the control so you may have to connect two together. Also look down in the washer and make sure the wires on the door latch are plugged in good.

Once you are done plugging in the wires good try the washer again. If it still doesn't work you need to test ohms across the door lock solenoid coils. To check this, first disconnect power from the washer. Then disconnect the plug that connects to the solenoid coils which is the sixth plug from the left. The plug should have three wires. The wire on the far left is common. This means that both solenoid coils connect to that terminal. Using your ohmmeter, check ohms from the far left wire to each of the other wires. There should be approximately 60 ohms to each wire. If not, replace the door latch. If the coils check ok it is possible the door latch can still be the problem but it is likely the main control (CCU).

If the door is locking but you are still getting the F/DL code you need to check the door switches. To check this, disconnect the power from the washer. Then disconnect the plug that connects to the door switches, which is the eighth plug from the left. That plug has four wires. Check ohms between the two wires on the left and the two wires on the right. With the door locked the ohm reading should be near 0 ohms between each of the wires. Note that if the door isn't locked, clear the code and start the washer and as soon as the door locks unplug the washer. If one or both of the switches are open (electrically) replace the door lock. If the door is locking and both of the switches check good (pass the ohms test) replace the main control (CCU).

If the door wont unlock to get at the latch, take the bottom panel off with the 3 screws along the very bottom of the machine. You can pull on a manual release that is at the bottom of the door latch.

Hope helps.

Ge profile front load washing machine demo mode

I called General Electric and this is the solution:

unplug the machine for 2 to 3 minutes.

Plug it back in the wall

Do not put the power back on.

Open the door

Press the start/pause button 5-6 times

The display will say demo exiting...

This works. Also don't forget to remove the shipping bolts before starting your washing machine!!

Good washing!!

I have a whirlpool thin twin waher/dryer and it will nt spin or agitate on any cycle

1) Be sure your clothes dryer is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don't plug into standard 120-

volt receptacles; they operate on 240 volts. 

Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected.

2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.

3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord.

4) Open the door, and check the door switch. Press and release it; it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken.

If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service.

5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic part may be faulty. The thermal fuse, found in the back cover panel, can stop working if the dryer overheats. Call an appliance service person if you suspect an electrical part may be malfunctioning.

Kenmore elite oasis he washer

Lets start by pulling the plug on this machine and while your back there notice where the three screws are holding the console to the machine and remove them until the top comes off noticing how it latches front to back and the screws secure it. Now you will see on the right hand side a grey box, look for a white plug top side left with only two wires sitting by itself and unplug it. Then plug the machine back in and you should still have no power. Next the cable with blue wires connecting the console to the grey box needs to be unplugged. Now we will test that grey box as it supplies your console. The test is as this unplug power, unplug console( blue wires ) then the next step is to plug the white plug with the thick dual black wires in. You should hear it cycle through all the valves, door lock and bump the tub. If this works and after you plug in the console and no power, guess what? Need to replace the console. Ps the plug with the grey sheath by the console blue wires is your door lock:) Write back if you need any help.
