I had the same Problem on a 17112e Creda, I took the top off and using a torch located the red plastic door release mechanism, I then pressed a white button in the centre of it and the door released. I believe that the washing machine was overloaded and auto cut out. I reloaded the machine with fewer items and it is now working.

Make sure the pump has pumped out all the rinse water. If not cycle washer to 9 and pump water out. Push door button and it should open, if not it is the electrical door switch.

Some washing machines have a mechanical/cable release hanging down underneath, perhaps behind the kick tray thing. the cable is attaches to the pulley at the back and it needs to push against the belt squarely to enable the door to open, otherwise, (after making sure it is unplugged) put you hand down behind the front fascia and lift the moveable part of the doorlock. This will not fix the problem but it will open the door.

SOURCE: door won't open at end of cycle Creda 1000 ecowash front loader

Hi Jenny. Do you have the model No. available?
Most common cause of this problem is
1. A faulty or broken door catch.
2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.

Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.

I have an Electrolux washing machine front loader and the door will not open after the washing has finished


Is the machine completely empty? Doors wont open as they can be hydraulically locked until the water is gone. Check the filter!. Some electrolux machines had a problem with mechanical door locks that wouldn't release - usually the cheaper machines. I used to fit a different style of lock to cure this, but you may only have a replacement of the same type.

My creda ww100fw washing machine will not rinse spin or empty.I think it may need filter emptying but it was only cleared by washing machine engineer 3-4 months ago!which cost £40.00so would like to know...


if not at front then at the back, usually has a plastic cover that has to be removed with filter attached. it may be that ur pump propeller is blocked or broken? However I would also check the motor coupler or belt depending on direct drive or belt drive, also check clutch and the door switch , check with multi meter for continuity. any of these can stop it from spinning and thus no draining?

Clothes smell mildewy after washing and drying


This is a common problem with front load washers. Mildew tends to grow in these washers due to it use of less water than top loaders, often leaves dirt and soap residue on the machine. To help prevent mildew, wipe the door gasket, leave door and detergent dispenser open after wash. Wash once a month empty, with hot water and vinegar to kill the mildew in the machine.

Mildew smell in front loader


Yup! I have the same issue with a WE206BNW (Canadian model). Did the same thing - dried the water off the door and leave the door open when not using it. Sort of helped, but then I ran an empty light load with bleach through it - no clothes, just water. Helped a lot.
