Question about Washing Machines
We recently had to replace the door seal to our ASKO washing machine. We had an appliance repair man do the work because I didn't want the hassle of doing myself. Since the seal was replaced, we have had issues with the door locking mechanism. The washing machine gives the error code "LE" (locking error). We had the same repair man back and he said that it is a bad door lock and control board which requires replacement. He is claiming that the bad door lock and control board have nothing to do with the replacement of the door seal but it was locking just fine prior to fixing the door seal. Does anyone have any experience with these issues? Is it likely that the replacement of the door seal caused the locking issues or is it just bad luck? Thank you

SOURCE: Washing machine door lock
undo clamp holding door gasket on cabinet and peel gasket back in the area of the door catch.
door lock is just held in by 2 screws from the outside and will come away when these are undone. on some models, there is also a small diameter pipe going to the door lock and take this off. note where wires go before removing them

My front loader has the door locked and I can't open it. I have already turned off the power and that didn't solve the problem. The manual says that if you try to open the door too soon after the cycle completes, then the door locks. How do I open it now? What do I do?

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
