Managed to work it out, you have to slide the outer door case away from the handle locking mechanism, slide left and move away (after undoing the 6 screws on the inside) :-)

Ultima WD860 - dryer has been stuck with 1 minute left for about half an hour. Have turned it off but obviously my stuf is stuck inside.


Hi!

Please disconnect your WD860 from the power supply. The door lock uses electrical power to stay closed. After you unplug the machine from electrical power, just wait a couple of minutes and the door lock will be released.

Regards,

Bogdan

My Tenants have broken the door release handle on this WD860 and I need to get the door open to remove the clothing and dismantloe the door for repair. How can I do this?


Remoove plug from socket, then remove top from machine I think on this model you will need to remove the small caps on side of the top. Then there are 2 screws to remove this will allow the lid to be removed. then you can normally reach inside to release the door.

The handle is broken on hotpoint bwd12, how do you open the door?


The door can be opened by pushing a piece of plastic such as an old credit card, or cut down lenonade bottle into the door recess releasing the latch. Or thread a peice of string around the door rim and give a strong pull to release latch.
hope this helps. GARY

I cannot open the door on my Hotpoint Aquarius wt740 after it finished a wash. Door handle is floppy and door light is off.


it sounds like you have a broken door handle Disconnect power before doing anthing remove lid , what you will need to do is usining a screw driver or somthing simular look down to where the catch is (you may need a tourch) and look carefully you should be able to to the door catch mechanisim from inside you will need to mimic the action of the door handel but using a screw driver it a bit fiddley but can be done there is no grate force needed and it the catch will only need to move a bout 3-8 mm to open

Remove top cover, and reach down with a long screwdriver or similar, and actuate the door lever from inside by pushing the catch over.

Repalce Door handle on GE Profile model number SCA1000DBB03


There're some half a dozen or so small screws securing that frame to the door face. These screws must be removed. Then, the frame can be pried out by releasing the plastic snappers (with a flat screwdriver) while in the same time gently helping the frame to detach from these snappers' hold and the door face. It's a tidious, somewhat annoying task. The snappers may and will even likely break in the process, but aren't needed for the frame to be resecured to the door face after the handle is replaced. Note that the broken ends of the handle must be held with a pair of pliers or a flat screwdriver needs to be inserted bewteen each of them and the hole, or the ends will turn with the screws. This is because the metal screws' grip of the plastic handle broken ends is very strong and will otherwise won't get separated.Once the above is accomplished, reassembling the door is a brease.

P.S.: The dual end latch may interfere somewhat with the job and can be removed for the prtocess to be undertaken without it disturbing. It's easy to remove and replace that latch, including its spring.
