Splendide 2000 Washer / Dryer door stopped opening

It seems like the electric latch stopped functioning correctly, will no longer open, I investigated a bit about bypassing it.

It has two white wires on the bottom and a red / blue / brown on the top.

Has anyone else experienced this issue its a wd802m

Thanks again

Well if anyone was reading this i sort of found a solution, while messing with the switch on the inside i snapped the bottom half with the two wires off, it seems removable but as soon as i did the the latch released.

If i leave that portion off it will engage and disengage properly....

I assume something internal to the switch failed maybe the solenoid mechanism protruding out of the bottom portion.

It's been about 15 years since I owned one of those combo units, but as I recall, the door is actually latched by a heating element. That being the case, you may not have a latch issue, but a control board/timer issue.

My door latch actually had a mechanical failure. I was able to remove the latch and took a dremel tool to grind off the plastic latching mechanism and reinstalled. Works great now now we just have to remember not to open door while in washing machine mode. Might have been able to bypass switch but this method seemed faster.

Splendide 2000 WD802 door lock failure

This WD is our 2002 Winnebago Ultimate Adventure that we purchased used a year ago. We used the WG combo twice at the most but preparing for a 5 week trip the door lock stayed locked. They seem to have built the RV around the washer so pulling it out to work on would require major cabinet work! I used a hold saw to make a 3 inch hole next to the latch. This was unnecessary in hind site! It helped ZERO. So I started using a screw driver trying to pry the door open near the latch. In pulling on the door, the out chrome ring snapped off like it's supposed to. This exposed the latch workings and I was able to pry the latch to get the door open. Two screws hold the solenoid lock in place and I removed and pulled the electric lock assemble out the 3 inch hole. I left it wired but have no intention of spending over $100 to replace something I find totally foolish! I reassembled the door and it latches as tightly as before. The minor imposition is that you hold the latch in the opening position while closing the door as the strike plate was removed as it was screwed to hold the lock solenoid in place.

If I were you, Iíd make a big label notice in a bright color to remind everyone NOT to try and open the Splendide machine anytime the machine is RUNNING and washing, rinsing, spinning, etc. Your machine should be labeled for your own good and to keep the inside of your RV DRY! I have a problem with our older Splendide causing the electrical breaker to trip anytime the DRYiNG CYCLE tries to come on. The plug-in electric cord begins to warm and trips the breaker. That safety feature works well! But right now I have no idea WHY itís acting up.

Has anyone else had this problem and if so and it was repaired, how did you fix this? Thx!

I donít believe I would try to open the door while itís in the wash cycle and if I was to error a label probably wouldnít stop me from making that mistake. As for your breaker tripping the power cord might have loose connection internally.
