It's probably because there's something blocking it like coins etc
or socks!
its only a plastic frame behind the bit you turn so it may break if you force it.
you could free it by turning it back and forth untill it opens but it may be worth getting a new filter cover to replace it before you do in case it does break.

How do I open my hotpoint wmd 960 washer door when the lock is on as the pump has stopped working and cant get my clothes out


you need to get the water out before the door will open. One way is to lower the drain hose into a bowl / bucket to allow the water to run out. Another way is to tilt the machine back, place a bowl under the filter and loosen off the filter so the water gradully flows out enough to open the door. Once all the water is gone you may find a coin or something jamming the pump.

Aquarius hotpoint wf541 wont pump the water out at the end of the cycle


You need to clean the filter.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well
Hope this helps with your problem
