    Thanks very much for your advice - it turned out that there was the casing from one side of a Swiss Army Knife caught in the filter! I removed this artifact with a screwdriver and then put the filter back in and went through the drain cycle which took about a minute then the door opened! Fantastic advice - thank you very much. Have a great Xmas and thnks again. Cheers, Andrew.

Make sure there is no water left in m/c otherwise this prevents the door opening.
If ther is a filter, remove and clean.
If you still have trouble opening door ,then do the following.
On the lower left corner at the front of the m/c, you should see a red tab there, pull on this and door should open.
This should solve your problem.
Plz leave feedback.

My stanley mod6500 1/2 hp lightmaker sometimes opens and when open to set distanve it kicks out to "reset mode" ( have to switch manually from operate to vacation then back to operate ) to reset and then...

You could have a problem with the door which is causing the opener to kick into a safety mode. Release the door from the opener, run it by hand several times. If you feel it bind, figure out where it's binding and resolve that issue. Then reset your opener again and it should be fixed. If it is not binding, then most likely you have a board problem and will either need to replace the board or replace the opener. Stanley's are known for these type of board issues. I would stick to a liftmaster if you replace it.

I have an akira washing machine. problem is that when it comes to spin...E2 will appear. what is the problem n how to fix it? thank you.

E2 is a faulty button on your control board. Rub your hands over the buttons to make sure none of them are stuck and if you find nothing, try to unplug the unit for 60 seconds. If you continue to have issues, the control board will just need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. Here is also a link for the manual.

2000 vw passat door latch

Sounds like something came loose on inside of door. People who lock there keys in thier car always try to unlock the doors with coat hangers and all kinds of stuff. Sometimes it knocks the clips loose inside the door and causes handle to not open door. Sometime they just wear out. I believe your going to have to take the inside door panel off to fix it..

Fuel door on a 2011 kia sorento has always been a little sticky, but now it wont open at all. Repeatedly pusing the button and it clicks at the fuel tank, but the lid doesnt oopen. just about out of gass...

Question is whether the cable/unlatch device is operating, or if the spring that pushes the fuel door open is out-of-position or broken. Have someone else operate the button while you have a fingernail or non-scratching inplement ready to gently pry the door open. If the door does not open, there may be a problem with the cable/unlatch device. If you can get the door to open by hand when the button is operated, you may have a broken or displaced sping, which will be apparent once the door is open. I fixed this issue on our '92 Sidekick by installing a small spring from an old flashlight, set up so as to push gently on the door near the hinge point, while wrapped around the original support bracket. Best luck!

Citroen C5 2004. rear doors dont always open. Sometimes one will and one wont, sometimes neither will open and sometimes both will work fine.

Hi! Its definitely the door actuators. The door actuators may be faulty thats why it fails to open at times. Once the actuators are replaced you'll be good. Hope this helps and have a good one!

My gas cap and trunk wont open. I need gas. Te button on the console won't release the gas cap to open or the trunk. Audi TT 2002.

Take your key and go to the drivers door, make sure the door is unlocked by pulling on the handle, open and close the door. Insert the key and "lock" the door, double check that it is locked by pulling on the handle. Insert the key and "un-lock" the door, use the handle to open the door and now press the fuel door key and it should open, same for trunk release button.

Audi's are a strange breed, sometimes you just need to "re-set" some stuff. But in the future if you lock the car with the key, the fob will unlock the car but the three buttons in the console will not work, the fob will function correctly.

I hope this helps.
