Door of indesit washing machine no opening model no WM12X

Hi I wonder if you can help, my washing machine door is not opening.
After it had initailly started a wash I forgot to put something in so stopped the machine and waited to so I could open the door. To be honest I think I was a bit heavy handed, now it won't open at all. I have switch off and left for a while. The handle appears slightly loose as well.

Can you please advise on how best to fix this problem.

First thing if this unit has an electric lock you probably open the door at the wrong time and threw it out of sync. First try to do another load from the beginning cycle and let it finish. If this don't work unplug your machine and then try. I hope this helps you.

I need to replace a washing machine door seal (indesit wm12x). Do i need to remove the top or can i do it from the front ? Any other tips on the procedure would be great. Thanks

It would be adviseable to rempve the top, and also tilt the washer to the rear, as it makes it easier to change the seal, and gives you more room to get your hands in.
Please rate my comments.
