Broke handle off of siemens TOP WD1200 champion, the settings are all in chinese and my clothes are locked inside. help?

This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
If you have used force you have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.
Click if helped.

How do I stop my Kenmore front loader from leaking around the door. I have a Kenmore HE 2plus front loader

If this is a Kenmore FRONT LOADER you need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to inspect the cabinet interior for the source of your leak. The following link explains:

The most common source of leaks on a front loader is the rubber door bellow. The bellow can develop cracks, rips or tears with age and needs to replaced. The following link explains how:

Pulled the handle to early to open the 7kg front loader washing machine and broke the handle. Cant open the door now and wet clothes are the washer. What can i do to fix this up?

To manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened

Or pull out your dispenser tray, along the rear edge you will find a cord, pull this like above. Depends on your model.
