Why my Washer door or lid won’t open?

Washer door or lid won’t open

When you’re trying to do your laundry but your washer door or lid will not open, that can seem like a problem. Don’t worry too much about it as there is probably a simple cause for your door locking and not opening. Whatever the problem may be, our experts are here to help you.


  • Blocked locking mechanism: when your washer door is locked and won’t open, the answer could be as simple as something has been caught inside the locking mechanism. If you can see that something is blocking it, try to gently wiggle it out. Don’t use too much force as you could risk damaging the mechanism.
  • Broken door lock: if the door lock is broken, it could get jammed in the locked position and will not be able to open. Check your machine manual to see if your washer has a manual release mechanism or suggestions on how to deal with this issue.
  • Broken pressure switch: if the pressure switch is broken, it could cause your machine to think it is still full of water, and therefore won’t open the door. This issue should be a rather easy fix by simply unplugging your machine and letting it sit for a couple of minutes. If this is the problem, keep in mind that you will need to replace the pressure switch to avoid future problems.
