    Unfortunately, I did not take note of the position of the parts when I took the door apart.

    Can somebody.... anybody please provide a diagram detailing how to refit the dam sping in the door catch.

Open the door fully.
Remove the door by unscrewing the two screws in the hinge.
You will need a T20 star bit/screwdriver for that.
Place the door face down on a flat surface.
Remove the 6 screws (Phillips) holding the inner door ring.
Starting from the hinge side, gently prize off the inner ring.
Its a bit like taking the lid off a Tupperware.
Remove carefully and take the glass and the pespex window out.
With a pair of fine plyers gently remove the brass pin holding the door latch assembly in place.
TAKE NOT OF THE POSITION OF ALL THE PARTS.
Note that the brass pin has a ridged section and the orientation of the catch and spring.
Remove the handle from the front of the door and replace.
Rebuild in reverse order.
Getting the pin back in is tricky.
First line up the pin and the handle and the spring.
Push in the pin using a gentle twist and push motion.
When one side is in place ease the metal catch under the sping and line up with the pin.
Once all thats in place keep twisting and pushing the pin until about 3mm is showing.
If at this point you are tempted to take a hammer to it, either call a service engineer
or retire to the pub for a couple of hours.
Next is easy. Put the perspex window in place (convex outermost),
sit the glass on top of it with the thicker part to the bottom.
Fit the inner ring over the latch and jiggle it til all the parts sit comfortably.
Tupperware the face back on, replace the six screws and refit the door onto the washer.

Hope this has helped someone somewhere.

All the best

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

If your seeing flashes from behind the dial I'm thinking that the timer needs to be changed. Even with the motor shorted out, it still wouldn't cause that effect to happen.

After fwashing, I tried to open the door. Unfortunately I broke the door handle. Now I hope to open it, and get the washed clothes out. But I can not open the door.


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

CANT GET DOOR OPEN ON WASHING MACHINE MODEL INDESIT 2099AOG


You could try to force the door open by inserting a screwdriver or similar at the point where then door latches in at the front of the washer, failing that, you will have to remove the top cover, and force the door open from the inside.
You are probably going to have fit a new door lock.
Hope this helps.
