Hi, welcome to FixYa. CHANGING THE FUSE 1. Remove the fuse holder insert with a screwdriver (1/4 turn). 2. Replace the fuse. (The fuse must be a 250V, 15amp slow-blow fuse.) 3. Fit the fuse holder insert with the fuse into the fuse holder.
I'll start by addressing the later part of your post first, and that is by saying I wouldn't run out and buy a new washer...not yet anyway.
You should be able to get the garments out of the washer by way of manually unlocking the door. The door can be opened manually, see below for instructions.
**Watch for lots of water if it hasn't drained though...see below for manually drain as well**
Usually if the door won't open it's due to the unit not draining sufficiently (this may explain the "shuddering" as well if pump has debris within it) or perhaps a fuse tripping, thus no power. Just to be thorough you should check the pump to insure the filter isn't clogged, in my opinion, or do you know where it is and how to check it ?
In the event the pump, filter or hose is clogged or obstructed, will prevent the door lock from releasing...potentially causing a fuse to trip.
This is by design, but it's easy to confirm or dismiss.
Check as follows...
Let me know if any of this isn't clear and I'll attempt to help you move forward by way of possibly emailing this info to you.
Once you've cleared the pump filter or ruled out it was indeed blocked or not, you can now pull the manual door lock release located in the same area.
Once that has been done, I'd now check the fuses in both the washer as well as the dryer...if yours plugs into the dryer as most Asko do. To do so is as follows...
Let me know how you make out. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck. Please take a moment to rate the info provided for you here today at FixYa.
