    need help

    gonna take a long while.
    have liberal greenhouse/anti carbon emmitting washing machine.
    Samsung
    front door latch wont release.
    while continuing to disassemble this comical monstrosity of a democrats joke, i will occasionally be jumping back onto this here web page.
    i have succeeded so far too:
    shut off both water supplies
    drain the pressure off both hoses
    taken both hoses off completely on both sides
    removed and drained as much as i could the drain hose
    am now attempting to move the machine out in order to be able to indentify it
    by its nameplate

    When you do get it unlatched , cut the wires right below the latch mechanism. Then tape the feed wires together to by-pass that crap.
    Make sure they remain above water level at all times.

    Youtube is your friend. I had to replace the idler pully in our 2 year old Samsung dryer a couple months ago. Found a vid that walked me through it. Like everything these days, they are made cheap. They used a bushing instead of a sealed bearing on the idler and it squeeked like crazy. It was just a matter of time until it got so hot it locked up. Replaced it with a bearing version and now it works like a champ.

    Had the same problem on a top end range Siemens. The catch is time linked to open and sometimes if you try to open it prematurely it messes up the timer. Disconnect from the power source for 15 minutes and then try opening it, or run it on the shortest cycle and when that’s finished don’t try to open the door until you hear the click, or a little light comes on (whichever is the complete finished method). Won’t say it will work as the catch itself may be faulty, but it worked for me.

    Sounds like what I have done to many seat belt buzzers in my trucks.

    @jirqoadai

    What model is it?

    Is it throwing you error numbers?

    I have several friends who absolutely hate their Samsung front loaders.

    it has a huge assed comforter soking wet with who knows how much water in its clothing hold. the water table isnt discernable yet. its under the glass door veiwing area. ive had the cord unplugged twice now. first time under a spin load setting. that was for 24 hours.
    second time ubder an off type setting. that was for 12 hours.
    my plan off action is to identify the product, remove said product, drain as much water as humanly possible, plug it in and hope it self corrects adter i unplug it.
