    Default WM2496HSM LG front loader door pops open mid cycle flooding

    Model Number: WM2496HSM
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    This LG, I haven't seen it. Customer called today. Not sure of the age. She says the door pops open during the cycle letting the water out. My first thought was the door lock not holding or the hook on the door damaged. After googling it I saw a complaint online about the door popping open on LGs . Maybe it is filling too full? Water valve sticking open or pressure sensor LETTING it fill too full? Then the too full water level pushing it open?What are your thoughts gentlemen?

    Hi,

    I guess no one has seen this before since you didn't get a response. I certainly haven't or I would of told you the fix.

    What I would do is stay during the whole wash cycle and when it does that, then you'll know what the problem is.

    Water valve sticking open or pressure sensor LETTING it fill too full? Then the too full water level pushing it open?
    Yes, that's possibly what's happening. But when she opens the door is the water still running out non-stop? If so does she turn the water off to the washer to make it stop?

    That's why you'll need to be the one that see's this problem happen first hand.
