LG Front Loan washing machine

My wife washed a large sleeping bag in our LG Front Loan washing machine. She now informs me the door will not unlock and she has run through the drain cycle but door will not open. Is there a reset program on the machine to try and unlock the door?

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!!!!

The door on LG front loader washing machine won’t unlock


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.

Should I hand-wash my sleeping bag?


Probably. I wash ours all the time. What is the material and filling? Down or feather bags are hard to wash and I like dry cleaning those.

For synthetic bags, load loosely in a top load washer or better yet use a front-load machine. The front loader tumbles the bag instead of using an agitator. Use minimum soap, and do an extra rinse. SPIN SLOWLY. You do not want the weight of the water to tear anything inside the bag. After it is done, then you can spin it faster because most of the water will be out. Then dry in the dryer. Some people say to put a couple of tennis balls in with it or an old shoe -- apparently to fluff it around a bit more.

Is it recommended to wash a sleeping bag?


Actually no, you should avoid dirtying your sleeping bag as much as possible in order to prevent your sleeping bag getting washed occasionally. The wash procedure is very dangerous for the bag because the shell is not all that strong, and the baffles inside are even weaker and can rip under the weight of a wet bag.

How should I wash my sleeping bag?


There are two methods recommended for a sleeping bag wash. One is using a washing machine on the gentlest cycle possible, it's a bit risky but it saves some time. The other way is to hand wash the bag in your bath using a proper soap and gently massaging the bag until the dirt come off, this is a very safer way than washing the bag that's for sure.
