Problem with washing machine

Washing machine was either turned off during cycle or just stopped functioning, i released the door catch to open and empty. now all that happens when trying to restart is the lights come on the start button flashes but when pressed the door catch clicks about ten times and then stops and the lights go off.

New door sensor im afraid,unless the machine senses that the door is properly shut none of your wash or spin cycles will start.Sensor located inside washer casing , where lock pin on door handle enters machine.It may just be loose,try tightening the two screws either side of lock keep.If it needs replacing you will need to UNPLUG washer ,remove lid and slide your arm down inside front of washer to access.Good luck.

How do i open the door

You don't give the reason for your question.

The door catch generally has an electric lock to prevent the door being opened during a cycle. When the machine has finished it's programme or sometimes is switched off (check in the instruction manual) the lock remains engaged for about a minute and then the door will open.

If the door catch or lock develops a fault the machine top will have to be removed and the lock released manually.

Aeg protex how to open door mid cycle

To open door during mid cycle, turn off washer by plug and wait a couple of minutes until you hear a click, then the lock light ( assuming it has one ) will release, but make sure there is no water in the tub before opening the door. If possible when door is unlocked, run the drain setting and let the water pump out before hand. Hope this helps.

The door on my Hotpoint Aquarius Dryer CTD00 pops open during cycle is it the door catch that's worn?

If the door latches correctly at the time of wash then it is possible that there is a false trigger to release the door, if so you need to check on the lock.

I was using the spin cycle to spin water from a scarf. I decided to stop the stop so I hit cancel button. Now the washer door is locked and I can't open it.

• If the cycle is interrupted during spin, it will take approximately 2-3 minutes for the door lock to release. DO NOT force open the door. • To stop the washer, press Cancel.

Door will not open


Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.

Thank you !!

Whirlpool Washing Machine Quitting during rinse cycle

I would say that based on your problem description that the lid /door switch has a loose or faulty contact .. If you open and close it a few starts to spin and yet when you open it.. it doesn't always stop the spinning.. It is either the switch or the actuator that bumps that switch.. That is where I would begin diagnosing the problem... Hope that helps..

Dead in the water

End of cycle? After the end of cycle you have to wait for 2 minutes minimum (or hear a click), only then you have to try the door; or your door won't open & if you force it you'll damage the door mechanism (not good). End of cycle means "your wash is done".

Pl rate if helped.
