Mechanical or electrical issue where you will have to seperate the front door outide panel from the inside panel and take a look.

This will keep the door from opening?

soap door problems

My whirlpool wouldn't stay closed and sometimes wouldn't open. If you open up the door you will find a lot of soap has accumulated over time. I cleaned mine out after 3 years of use and it has been fine since. Jell soap seems not to clog up as much.
As you open up the door take a few digital photos, it makes it easier to put it back together.
good luck

Yes. Since the soap door just doesn't open by itself with a mind of it's own, you have to access where the workings are. See post #4. Let us know how you make out.
