Unlocking a Stuck Door on a Maytag Whirlpool Alpha Platform Front Load Washer

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

In this scintillating safari into front load washer wasteland, Samurai Appliance Repair Man shows you how to manually unlock the door on a front load washer with the door stuck locked. This particular kata is for the Maytag-Whirlpool Alpha 2 platform front load washers but the same technique can be applied to most other models.

Early alpha washers have the manual unlock tab on the bottom of the lock like the duets. Makes it a little harder because as we know there is no bottom panel. i don't think many left the factory with that type of lock though. What PITA to reach it.
