SOURCE: Door won't open

My Zanussi has an outlet filter that is accessible by a little door at the front. It gets clogged if not cleaned for a month or two. Then the machine can't drain and the door won't open. Removing and cleaning the filter should correct the problem. You'll need some sort of container to catch the water that will pour out after you remove the filter.

You have probably knocked of the connector or the catch (and on these it is very fragile as I have changed the catch 3 times on mine) is broken

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

SOURCE: door will not open on hotpoint wd420 washing

Turn off the power and isolate the water supply, Move the machine in to the middle of a room - you need some space. If you then rock the washing machine backwards, there is a door release. It's extremely hard to reach, about level with the lock, so make sure the machine is both stable and that someone is with you to ensure the machine doesn't fall and crush you to death!

It basically looks like an little electronic panel, in the middle of which you can see a steel knoble. Press with some force, and the catch will release.

This just happened to ours, and the actual lock is broken, so that was why we couldn't open the door. Yours might have a similar fault. The mechanism is partially plastic and it looks like the plastic sheared off and then the electric release no longer pulls the catch in to the position where it will release.

Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 door won't open


on some hotpoint models you can remove the front kickplate and on there will be a yellow or green plastic pull toggle, pull this and it will bypass your door lock, if your appliance does not have this then you will need to unplug and leave unplugged for 10-15 mins to reset the door lock, you will however more than likely need a new door lock

Door will not open have wash cycle


Switch off, put in spin/drain cycle and switch back on; check water is fully drained and then check filter. If not all drained, lower hose to ground level and drain to a bowl.

Red light continues to flash to say that the door is open. Door is actually closed,but will not go onto program as the machine thinks the door is open.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Door lock


Switch off. Try some WD40 on the machine lock (not on door) and open & close door many times, to ease out the lock.
