My followup work-around: I unplugged the machine and drained the water out of the machine. Apparently there is a "lockout" safety feature that refuses to open the door when there is a certain amount of water in the machine. After draining the majority of the water out, I then cleaned the filter (and more water came out- have the bucket and towels ready!). The ultimate problem was that the pump was shot. While reseaching my own records, I discovered that I had purchased an extended warranty for the first and only time because LG was new to making washers. The pump was replaced at no cost within 24 hours.
ME TOO!! Good Luck Talking to Whirlpool! I unplugged mine for a few mins and plugged her back in and it unlocked the door. I have read in here that the F-01 Code is the death code! But I'm still waiting for the repair guy! Good Luck

F-01 is a communications error between the CCU and EEPROM.
The first thing to try is unplugging the machine for 5 or 10 minutes. If that doesn't fix it, you'll need a new CCU (probably need to replace that anyway). Though if you just got it 2 days ago, call the store you bought it from - they should replace it (and help you get it open to get your clothes out).
You can short the door switch and it will stay activated BUT the DANGER is that it will be available to be opened at any time specially after the water has loaded and if you accidentally open the water and clothes might flow out.
Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.
This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.
1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier. 2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose. 3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located. 4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

F/dU error means --------- Door Unlock Error A Door Unlock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to unlock the door 6 times before displaying the error. -------- to resolve the error --------- Door Lock Mechanism broken.Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objectsCheck Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure
Try to unplug the unit for five minutes, then plug back in. Try to start a load, as soon as the door locks agian, hit cancel. That will sometimes let you get back in. Im not sure if this is a top loader or front loader, but there is a way (if its a front loader) to remove the bottom front kick plate, then you have to reach up the inside to the door latch assm, on the bottom of that is a small round handle, pull it straight down, and the door will unlock. If its a top loader (i.e. Cabrio, Oasis, Etc), you can open the top only by unclipping the top from the base. You can do this by putting a putty knife in between the top and cabinet, then finding the clips, pushing them in and lfting, you can get your stuff out that way.
My Tech sheet reads F01 is a EEprom Error

and the EEPROM onboard the CCU occurred.
■ A power glitch may cause this error.
