your going to need to replace the igniton or the electrical switch part in the back of switch may have broke apart and jammed it,take it apart and seeif the key turns once the switch part is off the key part,(electric ignition switch is removed from the cylinder lock).
remove the top of the fridge by removing the two screws on the back of the top and sliding the top to the back. that gives you access to the doorhinges. remove the three screews of the lower hinge, which allows you to remove the door from the upper hinge too. (sorry, non native speaker)

Disconnect the harness and replace the switch. #5 Reverse the above proceedure to replace the top
What you need to locate is the door switch mechanism for the fridge. These are normally located towards the top of the door and protrude so that when the door closes the switch is pushed in. To find out if you have a problem with the switch just press it when the door is open and the light should go off. The switch itself can appear in various forms either as a protruding rod or a curved plate which pushes upwards against the door side when it closes. If I could draw in this section it could be better explained. But if you look around the inside of the fridge on the side away from the door hinge then you should find something you can push. Sorry to be this vague. If you do need a replacement switch they are normally quite simple to change depending on where they are located, most are two screws, or just a push in type. Hope this has been of some help.
One of the main problems with Indesit front loaders ( apart from replacing the door interlock switch) is
If the door will not close and click in the lock, then take the door off with a tork screwdriver and take the screws of the inner plastic off the door (make sure you do this on a flat surface) and gently prize off the inner plasic by running round a flat head screwdriver..
Once you have taken off the door and glass bowel - check out the door catch to see if a metal rod has come out of its housing holding the catch and spring in place and refit or replace.
I have come across many door catches like this.
