you need to teach children things, they never just know them on their own.
Why? Most devices function just fine with a door open. The only exceptions that I know of are microwaves, dryers, and dishwashers. If you haven't had your kid working with those before or showed them using those before then I don't think it's reasonable for them to just know it. I'll admit that I probably would've tried it but my parents encouraged me to explore and be inquisitive. So I naturally have been troubleshooting things. There wouldn't be logic behind it. I would have just been trying random things like pressing buttons again, checking the plug, and the like. But lots of parents don't encourage those values, especially for young girls.
Well I guess she had to learn at some point. On the bright side, she knows for the future and can help with laundry now
