Good afternoon,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

Have you cleaned the drain pump filter as well ?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
No, pulling the handle to open the door, fills loose as though it’s not catching lock
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Can you help me with instructions
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 20 days ago.

OK, please try this:

You will have to unplug the appliance and remove the bottom front flap.

Then keep some beach towels and shallow container under the filter.

Now, rotate the drain pump filter anti clockwise to open, clean it completely and make sure it is not clogged.

Also with your fingers check if impellor rotates, then reconnect everything and plug it back.

Ok will try that
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 20 days ago.

Then try a drain program and let it complete, the door should open.

However, if still it won't open or start the program then please check this VIDEO and try to open the door.

After the door is open try an empty wash program on its hottest setting.

If after this the door will still not open then I am afraid door lock is faulty and will need replacement.

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.

I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you.
