Hi Margaret.
If the washing machine malfunctions or you need to stop the cycle and retrieve the clothing, you can force the door to unlock.

  • Open the door after the "Door Lock" indicator turns off. ...
  • Press the "On/Off" button, if the washer is not already on.
  • Select the "Spin Speed" button to turn on the Drain & Speed cycle.
  • or go to this link and have a read up.

If your LG is similar to mine, there could be water in a hose that is located behind the small door on the bottom front of the washer. Open the door and drain the hose. Be sure to have a bowl or pan to let the water run into. Once the water is drained hopefully the washer door will open. When i brought my washer this was one of the selling features the sales person told me about.( The door and hose are accessible to the consumer to prevent them from having to call for a repair) Hopefully this will be your only problem. I bought an LG washer on June 28, 2008. It is now August 21st and my machine is still broken. It broke the FIRST time I ever used it (July 13th) and it still has not been repaired. (Per the repair person it is a water sensor problem which has been "ordered") I wish I had purchased another kenmore instead. I had my kenmore 16 years and never ONCE has a problem with it. I simply wanted to update my laundry room. WHAT A MISTAKE for me to purchase LG!!!!

SOURCE: FRONT LOADER DOOR LOCK WONT OPEN OR JAMMED

On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!

I pushed the 'pause' button during the wash cycle of my LG WD-3274HD and now the door won't open.


Hi!

The machine knows it dint't finish the washing cycle, and, because it may be possible that water is still a lot inside, the door is locked.
If you are shure the door can be opened without the water coming out by the door, simply disconnect it from the electrical supply and wait a few minutes until the door unlocks. (you will hear the unlock click)

Good luck!

LG WD12020D Inverter Direct Drive 7.5kg front loader. Has never had visible water level in the drum. I have even stopped the machine, turned off the power, waited for the door to unlock, pushed the wet...


No water that high. But you may have an extra water button that allows you to add slightly more water to each wash load. Water should be just above bottom of inside drum in the back of the drum as it rotates

i just placed my order @ home depot for the LG TROMM front loader washer. i purchessed the 5 yr warrenty and i belive after reading some of the comments in here that this was a good move. I used a maytag neptune @ work and it was a peice of JUNK! it has the mildue smell everyone is talking about. i was told of a remidy for this smelly issue. pour a good amount of casscade dishwasher POWDER not liquid into the washer drum and then pour bleach into the wash slot on the fron loader and then put the washer on the longest setting and let the machine run the cycle. i hope this works for you. i will try it once a month om my front laoder when its delivered. GOOD LUCK!!!!
