    The handle broke when I opened the door (heard a crack and the handle is now "loose" but still in place)

    Have you tried unplugging the unit for at least 10 minutes?

If clothes are still in washer? and machine has finished cycles? then handle broke so unable to open ??? your best option is to unplug/ and if necessary disconnect water supply hoses then remove the top screws from rear panel which also secure the top panel as you will observe ? then pull backwards top panel and loft off ? you now have access/visual of the door catch inside front machine look?? at the catch and you will see how it locks ? you can lever the catch gently and door opens to fit a new door catch is easy diy and not expensive if you are confident usual problem these break ? is the time delay micro switch sticks with age /moisture try dw40 and work plunger b4 you refit door back after replacing handle/catch assy

More likel that the door latch or handle is broken.
Only way to open door now is to remove the top cover and force the door lock open from inside, you may possibly break the lock by doing this, but there is really no other alternative.

Cannot open door as handle broken for indesitw103


hiya easiest way to open is = first unplug power! then turn off water hoses to machine then draw machine out to gain access to pipe connections on rear and disconnect them ? now remove rear panel top screws as these also secure the top panel at rear then lift rear of top panel and pull to rear the panel now can be removed ? you now have access to the latch on front panel inside? if you reach down you can flick latch /hook clear to open door ? at this point after removing washing? you can observe the door inner remove inner panel that surrounds/secures glass? then you can observe how the door handle/lock assy is secured ? easy diy you can browse yellow pages for the replacement handle assy? machine repairs/spares reassembly is reverse to above wish you well this is a common occurance and should not have prob obtaining parts for the MAKE/MODEL NUMBER ? when enquiring for parts best wishes

Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing Machine


no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck
