Two ways
cut or break the handle off and you will expose the start of the door peg. this can be levered with a small screwdriver and the door will open.
or
take top off
feel down the front of the machine inside and you will feel the door interlock. sticking thro the interlock, you will feel the end of the door peg which with difficulty, can be levered with thumb nail so door opens
disconnect from mains first

Indesit wd 125. Wash cycle had finished, door lock was off but


Unplug machine, take lid off and locate the door lock. You will have to use a small screwdriver or something to release the lock. Then replace your door handle.

Top loader door wont open


Something has caused the washer to not release the door. Is there an error code that is flashing (FE?). A locked door can be due to too much water in the basket, suds causing false water detection (should be using HE), or perhaps the drain is clogged.

If you are sure that the water is not going to spill out on floor, then you might be able to get door open by unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes (mine took an hour) for the electric lock to release.

When I open the driver side door, the auto window drop feature malfunctions: either it does not open slightly, or it closes early, before I close the door. Where is the sensor/regulator? Car is a 2007...


Sensor is in the door switch. You could try a little wd 40 into the key hole(could just be sticking). Not easy to repair. You could do further damage to door.

Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing Machine


no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam
