How to unlock the door

Lamp M flashes slowly when the appliance is switched on and
a waiting instructions and at the end of a cycle, indicating that the door can be opened. It flashes quickly when the door should not be opened. A steady light means the appliance has accepted the selected programme.

If the door is constantly locked then you can access to interlock by removing the top cover of washing machine.

Door will not open

On my machine which is identical to this one I have to press and hold the stop button to end the programme and then turn off and unplug the machine to reset it. Following this run a spin only cyle(M) to get rid of the water.
Once the machine has drained and ended the M cycle try the door again. If this fails unplug the machine wait for a few seconds and then plug it in again and turn the program knob to any programme but do not start it running, just try the door it should open.
If all this fails it may be a problem with the contacts for the electrical stage of the door release or a faulty door lock.
Good luck, Al
