My washer is locked won't open


Will Not Unlock
• Press off. The motor control is not responding if it
takes 4 minutes to unlock. The motor control is
either bad or disconnected.
• Unplug and reconnect power cord. Wait 20 seconds
for machine to unlock.
• Check lid locked switch circuit. Circuit should be
closed at machine control.
• Check for loose electrical connections at lid lock and
at machine control board.
• Push lid closed to make sure nothing from inside is
pressing against it which may keep it from unlocking.
• If necessary, remove clothes by disconnecting power

to washer, and open top cover with a putty knife.Here is the part to order.

Washer won't unlock

Assuming you've already allowed for this, try giving the door a good firm push (closing) on the mechanism. It may just have caught partially closed.

Hello,

the most typical reson the door wont unlock when cycle is finished is because not all the water drained properly due to a blockage in the filter for the drain pump. This tip i wrote explains how to take apart the washer and clean the filter on the pump.

If you find the filter on the pump to be clear the door lock asm. will need to be replaced.
