Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.


That is a motor fault code, the motor or motor controller is bad, most likely the motor controller is defective. Both the motor and controller are expensive you may want to start looking for a new one. You can fix it, but parts can run 300+

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

look mate I know the motor is defective !!! what I asked you for was how do I open the front loader door so I can get my clothes out . I have brought a new one . If you cant answer how to open the door then I expect a full refund
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

You just have to drain the water or remove the small door in the lower right to access the filter cap and pull the release cable.

I have done all that . It is not happening
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Ok then you can remove the top of the machine and reach down and pull the release on the door latch itself that is the last resort
