SOURCE: faulty door which keeps beeping

I had a similar problem which was resolved by replacing the door interlock switch (cost about £10.00).

To get to it you need to disconnect the mains then remove the top lid. You can then see it by looking down the inside to the right. Remove the 2 screws inside the door opening and you can then lift it out after disconnecting the wiring plug.

Replacement is the reverse of the above, a 5 minute job.

SOURCE: WF860 Door stuck in closed position.

FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

SOURCE: door handle of washing machine broken

if clothes are still in washer? and machine has finished cycles? then handle broke so unable to open ??? your best option is to unplug/ and if necessary disconnect water supply hoses then remove the top screws from rear panel which also secure the top panel as you will observe ? then pull backwards top panel and loft off ? you now have access/visual of the door catch inside front machine look?? at the catch and you will see how it locks ? you can lever the catch gently and door opens to fit a new door catch is easy diy and not expensive if you are confident usual problem these break ? is the time delay micro switch sticks with age /moisture try dw40 and work plunger b4 you refit door back after replacing handle/catch assy

Keeps saying LE. Wont run. NEC Topload washing machine


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France, Frid afternoon, 14:24,

As you do not mention the model, I am going to guess it stands for 'Lock Error'. Either the lock itself is malfunctioning or the door lock sensor is, meaning that service is required. Sorry ;-0(
Good luck,

Washing machine says door is open and stops


I would make sure the door latch and door lock are both clean and free of debris as this will cause the machine to fault out from the latch not hitting the switch properly. If cleaning it thourghly doesn't do the trick you may need a new door latch/lock mechanism.

6. The door may now be opened.
