My washer dryer was on baby cycle wash and although the green light has come on to indicate it has finished, red lock key is also on and I am unable to open the door.


Martha, Try running another cycle, for some reason I think machine is sensing it still has water in it. If after running another cycle dose'nt do it, check links below to see (2nd link) how to open door manually with out damaging machine. press the helpful button

Door on WD420 will not open


There is an electrically controlled lock on the door that prevents opening while the machine is in operation, and sometimes for a short period after a cycle has finished.

Sometimes this lock can get stuck and requires some persuasion to release.

This may sound odd but try it:

Make a fist with your hand and bang the door, near the latch, with the side of your fist. Do this firmly, but obviously not so hard that you will damage the door or, more importantly, your hand. This can often release the latch that should have released automatically.

Door stuck shut hot point wd420


It happened on our machine. The soloution to this for me was to take the lid off (two screws). Unplugged from mains. I found the connector to the door had vibrated off and was just hanging loose. Plugged it back in and it worked straight away.Door opens as normal.
Don't forget to look in the manual for how to get the door open in an emergency

My aqurius WD420 shows that the door is locked. So i can't open it........


If the door will not open normally, then the only solution is to remove the top cover, and force the door open from inside the washer at the front

WD420 hotpoint door will not open ?


In some cases switching off and back on again solves it. Otherwise try to run Rinse & Spin cycle again, and if after cycle door will stay locked you'll need to check the door lock itself, its wiring and/or main PWB
Please Update me how is it going on this
