How to Open a Jammed Washing Machine Door?

Open a Jammed Washing Machine DoorThere are times when a washing machine door may become jammed. On some models, it may be possible to unlatch the door from the inside by accessing the lock from underneath the washing machine.Safety FirstFirst and foremost, before attempting to work on the washing machine, be sure it is unplugged. Also, since the door latch for the washing machine must be accessed from underneath, have someone help with lifting the machine. This will help prevent any injuries, as well as possible irreparable damage to the machine.Manually Opening the Washing Machine DoorWhile having someone hold the washing machine at a 45 degree angle, place an arm up through the hole in the bottom and feel around for the latch and interlock. Once found, attempt to unlatch the lock. It is possible that this will take several tries, as it must be done by touch rather than site. After the lock is unlatched, push the door open.If the interlock and latch will not open easily, do not try to force it. This may damage the door. When this occurs, it may be time to consult with a professional to unjam the washing machine door. If the door continuously becomes jammed, it may be time to call a professional as well.

How do you wash cotton fiber?

Use the washing machine on a 30- or 40-degree wash cycle. Anything hotter than that and the material starts to almost rot away over time. Wash white items separately from color ones. Add a fabric softener; it's a must. Do not place the clothes to be dried on a radiator... it makes them go hard. If you have no tumble dryer, use the good old washing lines outside, or hang the clothes on a portable dryer. It's best to iron cotton fabrics -- in particular shirts -- when they are almost dry... it makes life much easier.
