Door jammed Indesit WIL 143 S. The door is jammed, the red light is on, not blinking. Clothes are in the machine. Tried to put on the different washing cycle, tried to put on spin cycle, drain cycle, turning off and back on, swithed off from the mains, turned back on. Still jammed. No water inside. Can anyone help before my clothes start rotting inside? Thanks

Re: Door jammed

Take the top off the machine,put your hand down to the reigon of the door lock and by using a small screw driver the catch on the door can be forced open without doing any damage.

Welcome to Fixya.
Try holding the Start/cancel button in for at least 2 seconds.
If there is another lamp flashing at the same time as the door lamp, then you will have to call an engineer.

Washing machine fault

Usually indicates door is not closed properly.
If it is shut securely, and still does not work, then you could have a faulty door lock.
Another possibility is the control unit could be faulty.
