Door handle replacement

I have got a new door handle and all the bits to go with it. I took the broken part out, and now I can't remember how to re-fit all the pieces on the handle.

    I have the same problem. I have actually replaced the front and inner on the door and put everything back as I remember it but still can not get the door to 'click' shut. I am now doubting myself as to which way the latch should go, i.e inwards or outwards! Does anyone know of a drawing or a photo I can see?

I tried different ways of putting the door handle and lock together. It took me 5 hours to eventually work it out. Now the problem is solved.

I took a digital photograph of the lock before I put it back onto the machine, so now I have a permanent record to refer to next time. I say next time, because we've had 2 Servis Washing Machines, and between the 2 machines, the door handle has broken 4 times, through no fault of ours, each time having waited for the time switch to deactivate.

I think by now the company ought to make the plastic piece that keeps snapping, out of aluminium.

Servis easi logic 1500


the doors can be dismantled and a new handle fitted. if you go to google. type in the make, model and end it with spares, it should come up with companies that supply parts. in the uk i use espares.
changing it can be fiddly but take pictures as you strip the door down so you get the pin, catch, handle and retaining spring in the right positions

Door will not open on hotpoint bwd 129 catch may be broken


Your door lock assembly needs to be replaced to open the door try the following procedure.

To open the door, get a piece of string and feed it into the door recess, work it around until both ends come out opposite the door handle.
Pull the string to the side and with your other hand pull the door open.
You will need to get a replacement lock assembly for the machine which isn't too hard to fit if you are a bit handy with tools.

I cannot open the door on my Hotpoint Aquarius wt740 after it finished a wash. Door handle is floppy and door light is off.


it sounds like you have a broken door handle Disconnect power before doing anthing remove lid , what you will need to do is usining a screw driver or somthing simular look down to where the catch is (you may need a tourch) and look carefully you should be able to to the door catch mechanisim from inside you will need to mimic the action of the door handel but using a screw driver it a bit fiddley but can be done there is no grate force needed and it the catch will only need to move a bout 3-8 mm to open

Wahing machine Tricity Bedix AW1260W-Door problem


probably handle mechanism broken. to open is a bit difficult.
disconnect from mains and take top off.
feel down the cabinet front on the side where the door handle and opposite the door handle you will find the door interlock. in the door interlock, you will find the end of the door peg. force this towards the middle of the machine and with luck the door will open.
anothetr method is to break the handle off and use a small screwdriver on the door peg

Broken front door


you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards
