Door Locked after Wash Cycle

Possible Solutions

Door is Locked at the End of the Wash Cycle

There are several reasons the door may still be locked after the Wash portion of the cycle is complete:

  • Water remaining in the tub
  • Tumble Fresh™ option is on
  • Unit has started Dry Mode

NOTE:  When pressing the "Pause" button to pause a cycle, the washer/dryer may not unlock immediately. If the water level is too high, or water temperature is too hot, the washer/dryer will wait until it is okay to open the door before it unlocks.
