Zanussi FL884 Washing Machine

Hi,

I cannot open the door and my washing is stuck in there. It seems like the catch is broken as the handle has no spring in it.

Am I right in thinking there must be an emergency release? If so, do you know where it is? I can't find it and there is nothing in the manual.

Many many thanks
rob

    thanks. got it open myself and have ordered the spare part needed. Spent around £15 instead of £100 to repair it or £250 for a new machine.



    Thanks so much. Greatly appreciated

There is no emergency release.
two ways of opening door.#
break handle off and you can lever door peg with a small screwdriver
or
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down to the door interlock and feel for the end of the door peg. push this sideways and you can sometimes release the door

Zanussi FL884 Washing Machine door lock broken.


More likel that the door latch or handle is broken.
Only way to open door now is to remove the top cover and force the door lock open from inside, you may possibly break the lock by doing this, but there is really no other alternative.

Lg washing machine wm-1460fhd door locked wont open


We have a WM-1480FHD, with the door stuck shut. It appears the door release mechanism in the actual door has broken, so when you pull the lver part, the catch is not released. You need to get a very flat knife,insert between the door and the front of the machine, right in the middle behind the release handle and push the hook towards the right side of the machine.Once open, you can check the release mechanism in the actual door. Ours is broken, so need to sort out how to repair/replace it next!

Door handle of washing machine broken


if clothes are still in washer? and machine has finished cycles? then handle broke so unable to open ??? your best option is to unplug/ and if necessary disconnect water supply hoses then remove the top screws from rear panel which also secure the top panel as you will observe ? then pull backwards top panel and loft off ? you now have access/visual of the door catch inside front machine look?? at the catch and you will see how it locks ? you can lever the catch gently and door opens to fit a new door catch is easy diy and not expensive if you are confident usual problem these break ? is the time delay micro switch sticks with age /moisture try dw40 and work plunger b4 you refit door back after replacing handle/catch assy

WF860 Door stuck in closed position.


FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

Door latch broken, clothes stuck inside!!


not that easy. best way to try is to chew away as much of the handle as possible till the door peg is in view then prise open with a small screwdriver. you can sometimes reach down the inside the machine from the top and feel for the tip of the peg and do it that way
