I cannot - it wll not unlock - the lock light flashes and it seems the drain pump is running and will not stop.I unplugged it for overnight and when plugged in again it still will not unlock nor will the pump motor stop
No other controls will work
Appliance Technician: Chas, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay, The model number you sent is for a dryer, can you post a picture of the machine for me to see which one you have?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
This is not fair - at this point you have not indicated any type of answer and now you want to charge me another $18 ro talk about it.
I would be better off just to call in a Tech to come to the house
Appliance Technician: Chas, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

What are you talking about? Ignore if it asked about the phone call, we don't need it

Chas the model # ***** ***** this is the # ***** on the warranty card the booklet on the machine shows W10649235A
Appliance Technician: Chas, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

DO you have a dryer stacked on top of the washer now?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No
Appliance Technician: Chas, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

We need to remove the top of the washer and reach down to the lock and unlock it while it is unpluged, There should be screws on the back of the top you remove to take the top off, then you can reach down to the latch, there will be a pull ring at the bottom of it, that will release the door, let me know when you get there

Appliance Technician: Chas, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Was the pump motor running with the door open?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The excess suds have caused a restriction in the pressure switch tube. The pressure switch is mounted at the top of the cabinet (with the top off). It will have a very small hose attached to it. If you remove that hose and blow through it (the hose), does air easily pass and the behavior change?
