How can you open the washer lid that is locked?

The lock mechanism could be to blame if the lid or door doesn't open after the cycle ends. The majority of washers have a manual release that unlock your mechanism and allows you to close the door. On some models, the release can be found inside the soap dispenser housing.



How do I unlock my Whirlpool washer locked?

After the wash cycle is finished, hold down the "Control Lock” button on your Whirlpool washer. The door should be open when the door is unlatching.

Why is my washing machine not opening? Water in the machine is most likely to be the cause. You can try running a spin/drain process. If that fails, you can drain the machine by placing the washer drain tube lower than the drum (into an empty bucket or tray). It is possible that the door interlock has become jammed.

  3. To restart the wash, close the door and press the Start/Pause key.

How can you open a jammed lock on a door?

To make it easier to insert your key, use silicone thread lubricant. If the lock is still not opening, you might try putting a little bit of graphite into the keyhole. After you have applied graphite, make sure to try opening the jammed lock at the least four times to ensure that the graphite is able to work.
