I've had a similar issue occasionally;
First, try turning it off and on again.
Then push the door closed with your knee as you pull the release handle.

My door seems to close tighter at the bottom than the top, so I have to push the bottom of the door in fully sometimes to get it to open. I guess some kind of sensor is getting tripped, and keeping the door locked..

I hope this helps!
Will

The door on my Hotpoint Washing Machine WT741 won't open even though the programme has ended. We've tried running the programme again and pumping out but still the door won't open.


The door latch may have broken. You can sometimes open the door from the inside. You will know the door latch is broken if the door handle is floppy. If the door handle is not floppy - then the issue is probably with the door interlock. This is the electronic part that prevents the door from being opened during and after the wash has finished.
Either way - you'll need to get the door open.
To do this, unplug the washing machine from the mains and then move it out from where it is. Tip the washing machine to a 45 degree angle. Don't tip it over 45 degrees as you may break internal parts.
You need two people to do this - one person hold the machine at 45 degrees angle, whilst the other person puts their hand up into the machine - you should be able to feel the door catch mechanism and depending on the model, open the door that way. Sometimes the manufacturer has helpfully put a manual release inside - and sometimes they don't.
If you aren't able to open the door using that method. Get a length of strong string and poke the middle section of the string into the gap between the washer door and the machine body - to the right of the door handle. Use a flat headed screw drive to push the string into the gap, all the way around the door, so that you end up with the two ends of the string on the left hand side of the door. Now have someone put the ends of the string whilst the other person pulls the door handle. If the string is pushed in far enough it will release the door latch and the door will open. It takes a bit of persistence to get it right.
Once you have the door opened you can usually replace either the interlock mechanism or the door latch itself. Parts are easily available online from sites like espares and yourspares.

Hi, this is a Door Lock Failure Error.

The service manual lists the following causes:

Door Lock Mechanism is broken or removed from door.

Door Switch Unit Lock Failure-Unplug washer and check door switch, wiring connections, and the connection to the CCU (Central Control Unit (You have to remove the lid of the washer for this).

To get at the switch, you have to remove the lower front panel. These are torx, I believe 3 screws. By turning yourself on your head, you can visually inspect the lock, and manually lock/unlock to check for bind (pulling/pushing a black plastic handle about two inches long with a teardrop shaped handle on the end.

Beko WMA 765s washer, power works no display


If there is power and lights are showing, but the door will still not open, then it could be one of several things.
First and foremost the door lock could be faulty, or the door handle or latch mechanism could be faulty or broken, if the door lock is not getting power then it is probably the main cotrol unit at fault.
I feel you should get someone to look at it for you.

two ways
cut or break the handle off and you will expose the start of the door peg. this can be levered with a small screwdriver and the door will open.

feel down the front of the machine inside and you will feel the door interlock. sticking thro the interlock, you will feel the end of the door peg which with difficulty, can be levered with thumb nail so door opens

I have a Bendix Autowasher 800 washig machine. The door lock seems to have broken, with a load inside the machine, and I can't open it to get the load out. The cycle has finished. I think I broke it by...


Have the same problem myself.

Remove top panel from washing machine by undoing two fixing screws to rear and sliding panel forward to front of machine.
Door lock is located internally on right hand side, its difficult to reach and I had to loosen the control dial and switches to gain access.
However it may be possible to release the mechanism by touch.
At the back of the lock mechanism the latch protrudes by approx 3 mm if you can see it or feel it you only have to apply some pressure to the projecting end to release the latch.
The broken release lever can then be removed from the door and replaced by a new part which cost about €6.

Broken front door


you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards

WF860 Door stuck in closed position.


FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck
