SOURCE: Door will not open

Hi,

Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.


Thank you !!

SOURCE: I've an Asko Front loader W600 bought in 2001.

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

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.

i.e.

macmarkus_24.jpg

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...


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.

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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: My door won't open on

unplug the machine for about ten minutes and then try to open the door after you plug it in. If the plug is not easily accessable, locate the fuse in the fuse panel for it. i may add after you have interupted power to the machine, you may want to try opening the door then.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

Similar problem here - pump was set for a 58 minute normal cycle, I look in and see it is now showing 67. Hmm. Attempt to shut it off because it is just sitting there pumping and pumping. Power shuts off but pump keeps running and add garment light flashing red. Cannot open door (to add garment or not) Unplug the unit and the door will not open. Anybody got a clue what's up? I have a wash in, service is closed due to a storm today. Just bugs me that it is 6 months old and seems to act up a fair bit electronically.

Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

Hi
Check the power supply/fuse in the first place. If the supply is right then the problem is of the door. Try to push the door a bit hard and try to open the door. When the machine is switched off the door has to open, find out if it is not stuck. Finally if things dont go your way call a mechanic.
Regards.
