DOOR WONT OPEN

I went to start a wash and just as i did i forgot to put in a top and tried to open the door but it wouldnt open, i continued wash and at the end of the machine bleeped as normal to unload washing but i cannot now open door. I did another wash to see if it would release it but it still wont open. I have tried turning off the power and on again and this does nothing either. You hear the sound of the door lock unlocking at the end of the cycle but it seems the handle is jammed and wont open door, any ideas?

    My wash stopped halfway through , and made 3 quick bleeps every few seconds, the door will not open , filter ok, it was towels so may be overload but I have tried turning the machine off at the mains for 10 min but nothing, I'm considering smashing the door in any other ideas lol

I'm afraid I don't have a solution, just the same problem. Exactly this has just happened to me and I don't know what to do. Calling out an engineer will be too expensive and in the mean time, I can't do any washing. Have you had any success yet?

Door wont open on Hotpoint WM51 First Edition


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
In your case you might have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.

Dryer wouldnt turn on its saying door is open


most of the time. its the door switch that causes this. if door is closed and it does not start, its the door switch. try this! unplug power, remove the door switch, hook the wires from switch together. this will make a complete curcuit.put black tape on wires so it wont short out. plug back in. it should work, if it runs ok door switch is bad. good-day !

Hi yesterday the door of the washing machine hotpoint aquarius 1000 wouldnt open. i turned it off took the top off and undid the catch with my finger. Now the door opens fine but its not getting any power....


Mike, you probably have a failed interlock...The latch which locks the door during the wash. It has an internal switch...That's why the machine wont start till the door is closed.....Most probable answer is to replace the interlock...If you want to do it yourself, you'll have to undo and refit the door seal...Or...It's not a big job for a tech...Good luck....Nomess

Which is better a top loader or front loader washing machine?


Front Loading Washing Machine: Fully automatic.
1. Better washing than toploading as technologically proofed.
2. No extra effort except putting cloths and detergent inside.
3. No need to observe in between while washing. Start and forgot. You can go market and come back.
4. No issue if electricity or water went out during washing.
4. Take more water compare to toploading semi-automatic.
5. You can not open it once it started.

Top Loading Washing Machine: Semi
1. Save water and detergent.
2. Need extra effort to put the cloth from one box to another.

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.

Door clicks and wont open and washer runs but wont do anything


Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit. Be aware you should discconect machine's power cable first !! Good luck!
