Question about AEG Lavamat 16810 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Door cannot be opened

As with another member, I can't open the door of my machine. It's just over 2 years old. I've too have tried turning the power on and off, running it through various programmes etc. The green light is showing when the programmes end and the door is clicking as per normal. Many thanks to anyone who can shed light on this problem.

After trying to find manual and doing it the right way with no success my son solved the door problem with a metal fork. Where your hand meets the handle (inside the door drum) shove the fork in to force the clip open. Not the outer edge of the door, theres no locking system there - behind the actual handle.

Sampsung wf7708n6w1 door won't open!

Your door switch/lock is broken, you need to unplug the machine and remove the top, you can then reach down (tight space) and using a small screwdriver you can pry around the switch and get the door to open, you need to get a replacement door switch for the machine.

Leaning the machine back can make it easier to access the switch.

Hi just read your posting.There are 2 common reasons your door will not open and they are,The handle on the door is broken or the door lock that is attached to the machine is faulty and not releasing. Did you try turning the machine off at the power point? Have a good look at the handle of the door and see if it is broken.My best guess on the problem with your machine,noting you had a power cut , is the door lock is the part that is faulty.The only way to fix this problem and release the door is if you remove the lid.If you would like me to help you reply back and I will guide you step by step to rectify this fault.Good luck and hear from you soon.

Door Lock LED flashing

Hello, This depends on how old your machine is mine is now 7 years old so I do not want to invest in long term soltions. So I repaired my own, I bought a new interlock and replaced the old one that did not work. So I shorted out the three links that go to the interlock, the machine now shows the lock is always on and you can open the door during the wash cycle so BEWARE. Also if you have never wired a plug or fixed basic electrics DO NOT DO THIS. 1. Turn off power and unplug. (Very Important) 2. Remove lid you will need torx drivers. 3. Unscrew door interlock from the front of the machine. 4. Lift out interlock. Try replacing the interlock with spare first (about £15). 5. If new interlock does not work do the following. 6. Put Interlock back on without wires attched to it. 7. From car spares shop buy spade conectors and create a three way shorting link (insulate well). 8. Put shorting link into each of the wires that go to interlock. Safely tie up wire to a loom (do not let dangle) 9. Shut the door remove hands and try starting the machine. 10. If that works put the machine back together. And warn people that the DOOR CAN BE OPENED DURING WASH CYCLE and STARTED WITH DOOR OPEN. So check when the machine has stopped properly.
