Door lockedshut with washing inside


Disconnect from the power socket. Leave for 5 minutes.
If still not opening, ensure it is not plugged in and remove the lid by unscrewing fixings at the back and sliding forward.

Catch can then be released from inside casing by sliding lock bar.

Will need new door interlock assembly.

The door on my Hotpoint Aquarius Dryer CTD00 pops open during cycle is it the door catch that's worn?


If the door latches correctly at the time of wash then it is possible that there is a false trigger to release the door, if so you need to check on the lock.

HELP! Very urgent! I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WD440 washer/dryer and the door handle has broken off. My clothes are stuck inside and I need them by tonight. How do I get the latch to open. I know I need to...


Slide a thin knife from 3 o clock door position against the frame to push the locking latch pin towards your left, only about a centimeter and the door would then release

Door will not open


Hi,


Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.



Thank you !!

I cannot open the door on my Hotpoint Aquarius wt740 after it finished a wash. Door handle is floppy and door light is off.


it sounds like you have a broken door handle Disconnect power before doing anthing remove lid , what you will need to do is usining a screw driver or somthing simular look down to where the catch is (you may need a tourch) and look carefully you should be able to to the door catch mechanisim from inside you will need to mimic the action of the door handel but using a screw driver it a bit fiddley but can be done there is no grate force needed and it the catch will only need to move a bout 3-8 mm to open
