Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If it will slide left but not unlock all the way, the lever is probably bent. Slide it to the locked position. When it stops, push it slightly farther to bend the lever just a small amount and then see if it will unlock. Repeat until the lever unlocks. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
