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: Broken front door

you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards

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

I need a replacement door for my Hoover Easy Logic 1100 aa Washing machine. I beleive that the model is discontinued but my machine is in perfectly good working order. Could you advise anywhere where I...


I searched for quite some time without success and I am Pretty good at finding things.

Contact Hoover using this link:
http://service.hoover.co.uk/spares

To order Hoover Genuine Spares & Accessories please call 08443 712758
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 8.30am - 5pm.

I could not even come up with the part number for the door. I did find the following:
1. Door Seal
2. Door Glass
3. Door Handle
4. Door Hinges

No luck on finding the complete door assembly.
Another alternative... if the Yorkshire area has an appliance recycling venter you may be able to find one there or in the classified ads "for parts only" But then your faced with disposing of the "junk."
I recommend you contact Hoover using the number or Lonk above and see what they can do for you.

I wish I could have done more for you but the whole door assembly just does not seem to be readily available.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

HELLO , I HAVE A HOOVER NEXTRA MEGA LOAD WASHING


Hi John,
it has been a while since i worked on one of these, but I might be able to talk you through it, first make sure you have the correct bits to replace. i.e. the inside of the handle and the latch match the same that is on that you can see before you go any further.
using a torx size 15 I think remove the two screws on the door hindge, and then remove door by pushing up by a 1/4" then the hindge should pull away from the machine. using a torx size 10 then proceed to remove the four screws from the inside of the door frame, ease the door pannels appart and the glass bowl and lock should be exposed. there should be a further two screws holding the latch in place, just be careful when taken these out as they may be under load from a spring, note the positions of the latch and replace all back in reverse order.
Cheers,

Cant open the door on my washing machine


if you can get a small thin metal object in there and jiggle it around, you may get it open. if not, sheet metal panels will have to be removed to get to there. do not smash the glass!

Can't open the kick plate of my samsung j845 washing machine


Happened to me too today. As I was pulling the handle, a piece inside snapped. The handle felt loose, as though it wasn't pulling the catch. To get the door open, I used a screwdriver. I pulled the handle as far out as I could, so that I could get the screwdriver in. The dark black metal part has to be levered away from the washing machine - in the direction the door would open. That will release the catch and then the door will open.

After the door is open, the challenge is to remove the handle. You'll need to undo all 10 (or so - from memory) of the little screws, so that the inner part of the door comes off. Be careful as you get to the last one - things will fall away. The handle and the small broken tab just fell out for me. Once the handle is out, you can put the door back together again. I use a small hex key to help open (and close) the door. With no handle, the catch springs a bit too far over for the door to close, so you'll need something (e.g. 1/8" hex key) to hold it over a little. So now, I can use the washing machine while I try to find a new part.

Cannot open door as handle broken for indesitw103


hiya easiest way to open is = first unplug power! then turn off water hoses to machine then draw machine out to gain access to pipe connections on rear and disconnect them ? now remove rear panel top screws as these also secure the top panel at rear then lift rear of top panel and pull to rear the panel now can be removed ? you now have access to the latch on front panel inside? if you reach down you can flick latch /hook clear to open door ? at this point after removing washing? you can observe the door inner remove inner panel that surrounds/secures glass? then you can observe how the door handle/lock assy is secured ? easy diy you can browse yellow pages for the replacement handle assy? machine repairs/spares reassembly is reverse to above wish you well this is a common occurance and should not have prob obtaining parts for the MAKE/MODEL NUMBER ? when enquiring for parts best wishes
