SOURCE: unable to open door


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 !!

What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.

Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

There is a rod inside the door that connects the inside and outside door handles to the latch mechanism, if it gets bent or broke it won't activate the latch. The inside door panel will have to be removed and parts of the mechanism also to reinstall. Would recommend maybe taking somewhere unless it's an old BWM.

Hi my ford door wont open from the out side

This is a generic answer since you didn't say what year or model it is.
This requires removal of the door panel and PLEASE DO NOT USE A SCREWDIVER TO PRY THE PANEL LOOSE, you can get a cheap fastener release tool from an auto supply store. It looks like a carpet tack remover.
Inside the door there's a link that connects the outside door handle to the door latch. This link goes into a hole in the latch AND a hole in the door handle and is secured with clips. If one of these clips fall off, vibrations will eventually cause the link to fall out of these holes. Put the rod back into the hole and put a new fastener on it.

Rear door wont open-hatch or window - can open hatch with inside release

Sometimes there is a safety sensor that does not allow it to open if the vehicle is in gear. This sensor may be faulty but most likely not the problem. Remove the inner panel on the back hatch and inspect the linkages from the outside handles to the releases inside the door for the glass and hatch. These have most likely came loose from the latches they operate

F22 code door wont' open

We had called Sears for an appontment, and the repairman did exactly what your technician had shown as the way to open the door - fortunately, he found that the wire connection to the release handle had come loose, so he had to get inside and reconnect it. Thank you.

Washing Machine Door will not open

it is poss that you pressure system has not released, and this can keep the door closed. Unplugging it will not cure this fault. It is also poss that you have a blocked filter or waste. Unfortunatly has you are older people I would call an engineer
