Get a thin screwdriver and poke it in between the door frame and the front of the washer where the door latches in, push hard and see if it will release that way..
If no go, then remove top of washer , and with a long screwdriver or similar try to release the door catch from inside the front of washer, you may have to lever it open, and possibly break the door lock in the process.
There really is no other way of releasing door.
You obviously will have to replace the whole door handle assy, and the door lock.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Zanussi FL884 Washing Machine door lock broken.


More likel that the door latch or handle is broken.
Only way to open door now is to remove the top cover and force the door lock open from inside, you may possibly break the lock by doing this, but there is really no other alternative.

It appears that you may have a faulty door interlock or a faulty PCB. pcb is not really a DIY job as some boards require proramming on certain versions. Regards Advisor
