You almost had it with turning it off at the mains. It's usually a matter of patince. UNPLUG from the mains (sometimes there's a sneak circuit and the interlock switch is still powered up even when switched off). Depending on the machine, you will have to leave it quite a while. I've not heard of a machine that, once unplugged will not let you in after 20 minutes.

Unplug, walk away and don't try the door for a full 20 minutes. It will open then.

TIP: If the machine is full of water, pull it away from teh wall and tip gently backwards until the water is no longer lapping against the door. Now you can open the door and bail the water out without getting a wet floor.

Your unit has an access panel, at the bottom of this panel are 2-4 screws. Remove them and the panel also, unplug the unit, with your right hand and to the right of the door, use you hand to go inside the unit toward the door latch. At the bottom of the door latch is a pull down looks like a tear drop but can only be felt. This is the door release, when you pull on this gently you should hear a click. This is the emergency door release for this unit. Good Luck

My washer door will not open its a wd645 model i cant find the lever when i took lid off


The door latch is probably broken. Emergency opening can be done accessing the door latch from the inside of the washer assembly.

Before attempting an emergency opening, disconnect power cord and empty water inside the machine through the filter located at the bottom front side of the machine.

After removing water connect back the machine and try opening again.

If that does not work, then the machine must be disassembled. Most models have an emergency cable located on the inside of the door latch. Pulling the cable will release the latch.
The inside of the door latch is reached either from filter housing or from top of the machine. Either the filter (usually held by screws) or the top panel must be removed to access the inside of the lock mechanism.
Power must be kept off while doing maintenance. Due to the safety issues involved the door latch emergency opening and repair must be done by a trained technician.

Door doesn't open

There is an emergency door release tab/pull ring attached to the bottom of the door lock assembly.

The lower access panel can be taken off by removing the screws and then reaching up under the door lock and pulling downwards on the pull ring. Pull down and then you can open the door.

The door lock will not release so I cannot get my washing out

these door locks usually work with solenoids (sp) if you unplug the machine( leave it unplugged). the door lock should release in no more than 10 minutes. there is also an emergency released built in somewhere, not being familiar with this modl i will guess if you remove the front panel there might be a string you can pull to release it.

Thanks for contacting

The wash is finished but the door will not open?

You door switch is most likely faulty.

Open the drain filter door in the bottom corner of the machine. See if you can locate a lever or ring to pull down. This will manually release the door.
