Can I open the locked door of the front load Washing Machine?

Last Update Date : Mar 27. 2018



You cannot open the door when the water is still in the washing machine. When the tub is filled with water, the refrigerator automatically locks the door for Safety Reasons.

If you want to open the door during the washing cycle, press ‘Stop’ Button.


The door may be locked for two reasons :

● The washer is too hot.

● Water remains in the washer.


You must :

● Wait until the unit cools down.

● Select ‘Spin Only’ to drain the water.


Only after following the above steps, the door will be open.
