Door catch not opening - Fagor Washing Machines

Posted by on

    Managed to open it by threading a piece of garden wire around the door and lifting the two ends togher at the left hand side i.e., opposite side from lock. Pieces have actually broken off lock mechanism and lock prong is stuck in closed position so using a scraper to close the door and the garden wire to open it untill the new lock mechanism arrives. ;-)

How do I change the door catch after I've reversed the door


Please see this video:

Your goal is to switch the door catch to the opposite side of the door opening, and move the catch opening plate/cover to where the door catch was originally installed.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

How to open the door of 773 model for replacing the damaged latch.? Hook like thing of the latch at the upper part is damaged and i have to replace it witha new latch. But I am not open the door.


To open the door, remove the appliance case and with a long small diameter screwdriver, gently lift the catch holder assembly up to release the door catches.
When you replace the door catch, ensure that the door fits correctly.

The soap dispenser does not open to let the detergent out during the wash cycle.


Sometimes if the tablet is not put in correctly it makes the door catch jam as the tablet is pushing against the door and not leting the catch move to open. try putting the tablet in then close the door then just flick the catch to open the door to see if it opens easy. if this dose not cure it then the door catch has moved or got loose behind the door cover. with the electricty off and plug removed you migh try taking the screws that hold the main door front on and then checking the plastic arms are all inline and move easy. the door catch works on a selonoid that throws open the catch, its unlikly that this has gone open curcuit but if this is not opperating i think you need to call an engineer.

The door catch on my easi logic 1200 washing machine has broken


The door catch will have to be replaced, depending on model you can buy these from a repair shop for a few pounds.

You will have to open the machine to get to the door catch from inside.

IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.

Remove the power supply as mentioned above, remove the top cover reach down inside and try to open the door, (BE SURE THAT THE DRUM IS TOTALLY EMPTY OR YOU WILL FLOOD THE FLOOR)

I can't advise exactly how to open the door from the inside, beacuse I do not know the make or model No.

If you are successful in getting the door open, the screws to remove the broken catch should be visible just inside the door.

Best of Luck!!

Faulty door catch on my LG washer?


I have had the same problem for a week now. Until I find a spare part I slide a scraper to push the catch open. That just works.
