Pull the door release cord at the bottom of machine. make sure there is no water in the drum.
worst case scenario is you may need a new interlock or module(thats if it keeps clicking)

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open

The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.

Hello my splendide wd2000s wont drain or spin and wont release the door lock...what do you think

If the machine senses that there is water still in the tub, it will not release the door. Unplug the machine you should her a click and the door should release itself. should take about a minute. As far as the drain and spin, remove the washer/dryer back and check the drain pump, check that the lint filter is clean and that the drain hose is clear of foreign objects. I have instructions for how to unlock the door when the machine is in a cycle. If you're door lock is continuously giving problems,i can walk you thru the steps to test it, to see if needs to be replaced. Lets start with those solutions first, if they don't work we can go to the next step, which would be to test the drain pump and the door lock, and also to put the machine in diagnostic mode

My machine has the door lock light on and wont start, the door is locked as i have to press the release to open it!


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 !!
