Front load Whirlpool Duet

Washer was in spin mode and went off balance. The door came open and we did everything, Unplugged and then held the cycle off for 5 seconds. The door now will not close at all. It seems to have sprung something. Help

    No the door catch is still there. It may be the door lock as you can hold the door with your knee and the washer will work.
    I found the part, but I don't know how difficult it will be to replace. It is called a door lock assembly.
    Do you know if it is difficult to replace?
    Thanks,

Hi, Has the door catch,which protrudes and goes into the hole, broken off, it should have a sort of hooked end. Tom.

    Usually when the door is closed the door catch holds it shut with the hooked end, then when the washer is switched on to start, the door interlock locks the catch in place so that the door can't be opened. If there is no hooked end on the catch it might have broken off and so not keeping the door shut. If you are certain it is alright then the interlock is usually accessed by removing the top cover. There should be 2 screws holding the plate where the door catch goes in, on the outside, and when this plate is removed there are 2 more screws holding the interlock to the front.
    MAKE SURE THE PLUG IS TAKEN OUT OF THE SOCKET BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING. Tom

My washer is out of balance when spinning.

Hi,
Your problem is probably much more than the washer being out of balance. The front load washers have shock absorbers that hold them from moving all over the place. These have a habit of breaking. Then the drum hammers and sounds like things are flying apart. Pull the bottom front off and check the shocks. Typically the rings where the pins go throuhg are where they will break. Sometimes at first they look okay and you have to grab them and move them to see that they are broken.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer Won't Turn On

MY WASHER WAS DOING BASICALLY THE SAME THING. I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL FRONT LOADER MODEL #GHW9460PL0. MY HUBBY REMOVED THE 3 SCREWS FROM THE BACK OF THE WASHER, UNPLUG IT FIRST, AND TOOK THE TOP OFF. WE THEN CAREFULLY UNPLUG THE WIRES AND REPLUGGED THEM BACK IN 1 BY 1 SO U WONT GET THEM MIXED UP. WE THEN TRYED IT, AND THE CONTROL LOCKED LITE STAYED LIT. HE HELD THE SIGNAL CYCLE BUTTON IN FOR 3 SECONDS AND THE LIGHT WENT OUT. WE THEN TRYED RUNNING A CYCLE AND SO FAR SO GOOD!! GOOD LUCK!
