Question about Washing Machines
I cannot open the door to my washing machine, i have pulled plug and then reconnected and it does not open. It sounds like it is trying to open the door but cant. There is a load in there and its never happened before?
I suggest call ASKO on 1300 00 2756 and ask for the service dept. It could be something very minor like a blockage in the drain pump.
But it better to have someone look at this.

Make sure the programme selector switch is at an end of wash position as these door locks are interlocked to prevent accidental opening during operation. There is also a 2-3 minute time delay after the was finishes so disconnect for say 5 minutes and try again.
If it still doesn't open you will need to get access to the mechanism dependent on what type of relrase mechanism you have;
if it is a push button release with a cable to the lock sometimes you can remove the top panel of the machine and pull on the cable or linkage to open.
If it is a lever type release mechanism this is more difficult to open but you can sometimes reach and release it by the same method.
Always disconnect the machine from the electricity supply before working on it.
