The interlock is stuck. You might need to get behind the casing to release it, you can do this by removing the top and reach down to the linkage just give it a pull and it should unlock. Remember to disconnect the machine from the electricity supply first.

Error code E07 on my Hoover WDYN 854 DB results in me not being able to open door after a wash cycle any ideas how to open door


Switch off and for Door lock fault or Motor fault .
Check both are ok and make sure nothing is jammed or restricting the operation as it is according to which main board is fitted to the machine.

I cannot get my washer to release so i can open it up and switch clothes over.. It has finished its cycle i even made it do another cycle to try and get it to release but it wont.. any suggestions? Kat


There are many reasons why the door may be jammed shut -

1. The water hasn't pumped out properly and the washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock (a rubber hose connected to the door interlock and connected to a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water forces air up this tube and locks the door)
2. Washing machine won't empty water
3. The water has pumped out properly, but a blockage of gunge inside the pressure chamber bottle is trapping the air that's operating the door lock (if a pneumatic lock is fitted - not many have these days due to cost cutting)
4. Door interlock jammed
5. Door catch, handle, or mechanism broken
Try running Just the rinse spin cycle again,

Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Cant open the door on my washing machine


if you can get a small thin metal object in there and jiggle it around, you may get it open. if not, sheet metal panels will have to be removed to get to there. do not smash the glass!
