Broke handle off of siemens TOP WD1200 champion, the settings are all in chinese and my clothes are locked inside. help?


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
If you have used force you have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.
Click if helped.

I have a broken door catch for a Siemens Siwamat XB 1061. Can I get a replacement part


I feel for you because we have exactly the same problem : our door broke, the handle in fact. Everything else works wonder but the screw driver trick is bound to give in one day eventually and we'll be left with no washing machine at all. Has anyone found any infor on the door anywhere? thanks guys

Need a new door opening handle?? the handle broke


You should be able to order one from Splendide. In the meantime, try using a screw driver to manually push the door release button.

Door is locked, handle is broken, how do I open the door?


YES!!! Samething happened to me!!!
I haven't fixed it yet BUT I know how to get in~You have to take the handle off...completely. May have to break the plastic...
You'll need 2 flat head screwdrivers.
You have to push the metaal part that would have been attached to the plastic handle and then pull the door out where it meets with the machine. Like where the grey inner seal is. Be gentle but firm handed. Think push with one driver~pull out with the other. Be patient as it will be fustrating the first time.
Good luch tho!!!

Can't open the kick plate of my samsung j845 washing machine


Happened to me too today. As I was pulling the handle, a piece inside snapped. The handle felt loose, as though it wasn't pulling the catch. To get the door open, I used a screwdriver. I pulled the handle as far out as I could, so that I could get the screwdriver in. The dark black metal part has to be levered away from the washing machine - in the direction the door would open. That will release the catch and then the door will open.

After the door is open, the challenge is to remove the handle. You'll need to undo all 10 (or so - from memory) of the little screws, so that the inner part of the door comes off. Be careful as you get to the last one - things will fall away. The handle and the small broken tab just fell out for me. Once the handle is out, you can put the door back together again. I use a small hex key to help open (and close) the door. With no handle, the catch springs a bit too far over for the door to close, so you'll need something (e.g. 1/8" hex key) to hold it over a little. So now, I can use the washing machine while I try to find a new part.
