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

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.
