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.

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.

there r 2 ways to get the door open 1)use a normal knife and place in front of the door handle push it in and it should open 2)pull the plug out take the lid off now place your hand down to where the catch goes into the washer using your fingers u should be able to pop it open with a bit off fiddling

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
