Question about Equator EZ 2512 CEE Front Load Washer / Dryer
I think my fan belt broke yesterday while I was washing some towels. I heard a loud bang and then the drum stopped going around.
The problem now is that I have a load of towels that I need to take to the laundromat to finish washing, and I can't get the door to unlock.
The only thing I can think of doing is to let it run through the cycle until it gets to the part where the pump pumps out the water, then turn it to Reset and see if that does it.
Is this wrong? Will I burn out the motor if I run it without a fan belt on it?
The motor bracket is broke, which allows the motor to "jump" causing the belt to come off.

Select a drain only option if the machine has one otherwise ok just let it run,
once the water has drained the door should open, then ask yourself why the belt snapped, which could be an entirely different situation
the only problem you will have is that the drum won't go round, this will not damage the motor or burn it out, if at all possible before doing this, try to remove the remains of the belt
