Question about Washing Machines
I replaced the handle on my AWD129NA and mistakenly placed the hook facing the wrong way (i.e. inwards facing rather than outwards) and since it closed it, it won't open. I've tried accessing the lock by opening the top access panel, but I can't seem to open it. ] Is there any way I can open the handle now that it's been poorly installed? Do I have to break the lock from the inside and replace that? Any help would be much appreciated!

open the top lid.
reach down inside and feel a plastic sensor/release behind where the latch is.
towards the left center of that sensor, feel for a metallic manual release (you'll just feel the nub of it).
Push this in and to the side to manually release the door lock.
Call Ariston and complain about this common problem.

The round access panel turns about 5 degrees then it pulls off. If you try to pop it off you will break it. Once it's removed there is a twist on cover to gain access to the pump guts to look for crud. Unscrew the cover (put a pan under it because water will come out) and look around for anything that doesn't belong there. When you reassemble it, there is a piece on the cover that has arrows on it pointing down. Put that on the bottom and screw the cover back on.
My guess is that if your washer is full of water, it will all drain out when you disassemble the pump guts.

Managed to work it out, you have to slide the outer door case away from the handle locking mechanism, slide left and move away (after undoing the 6 screws on the inside) :-)

first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit
