no manual way.
check machine has drained fully - if not door will not open. in this case, put drain hose down at floor level in a shallow dish to drain
disconnect from mains.take top off. feel down front of machine where door latch is and you should be able to feel door peg thro the interlock. pry to one side with thumb nail to open (this is quite difficult)
break door handle off and lever door peg with a small screwdriver

SOURCE: Door won't open

Usual reason for this is not emptied correctly. The filter on this model is in an awkward place so try lowering drain hose into a bowl to check if water still in.

SOURCE: door wont open on my hotpoint aquarius washer/dryer

Turn the dryer dial to off, making sure you can hear it click off, wait 1 min, and then try door. If it will still not open then you may have faulty door lock, or a prob with the door handle.
Plz rate my solution.

SOURCE: How do I change the door boot seal on a Hotpoint Aquarius WMA31N?

Ok - I will answer my own problem seeing as though I have now fitted it!
1. remove door (2 screws)
2. There is a tensioned wire loop holding the front part of the boot seal in position. - prize off the plastic cap at the 11 o'clock position, all will become clear and you will be able to remove the wire loop.
3. Remove top of washing machine (2 allen screws behind caps at the front.
4. Remove soap dispenser draw and any screws holding the front control panel and top of the door.
5. Remove bottom front plinth (just pull it off) underneath are a couple of screws holding the front panel part of the machine, remove these.
6. Remove front of machine giving you access to the steel band which locks the other end of the boot seal in position. Slacken this band right back using a nut-spinner screwdriver. Pull off the old boot and clean the lip ready for fitting of the new boot.
7. Fit new boot seal using a squirt of washing up liquid as lubricant if needed (mine didn't) to reseat the seal.
8. Refit and tension steel band.
9. Re-assemble front panel, ease boot back into front lip position then refit wire loop using a suitable pair of pliers/molegrips to crimp the retaining plastic cap back in situ.

Door locked no light to say locked no washing action on hotpoint wf430

Brusheson motor will be worn. The door lock is in series with the motor so if brushes worn it interrupts the signal telling the board the door is locked. New brushes will likely be all it needs.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF430 and the drum is not turning. How do I remove the top to see if the belt has come off?

If there are no screws along the rear of the top, try inserting a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring lock--push straight back. The top is usually hinged at the back, so you will need something to prop it up. Hope this helps!

Broken door handle.

Remove top cover, and reach down with a long screwdriver or similar, and actuate the door lever from inside by pushing the catch over.
