there r 2 ways to get the door open 1)use a normal knife and place in front of the door handle push it in and it should open 2)pull the plug out take the lid off now place your hand down to where the catch goes into the washer using your fingers u should be able to pop it open with a bit off fiddling

I went to the RV dealer and looked at a new unit to see how the door handle actuates. After I understood that, I was able to take a screwdriver and GENTLY duplicate the same action. I had some success for several months after gluing up the broken handle before it broke again. The second gluing attempt didn't hold at all so we'll be purchasing a new handle unit. From some of the reader's forums, it is indicated that this is a very common problem. Supposedly, they have reinforced this replacement part. Unfortunately, you can't just purchase the piece that's broken. You have to buy the whole assembly for $40-$50. Nice after market income for the manufacturer since it happens so often - expensive for us. I just hope the new one is sturdier.

Yes, follow the above instructions to open the washer. It happened to me last night. The machine was still locked and when I went to open it, the handle just broke off. You have to push the part in (where the plastic handle was) and use a screw driver to pull open the door (simultaneously). I was able to find a company in Toronto/Mississauga called Rapid Service who carry the parts and provide service for this machine. The door handle costs $55 and can be installed by yourself (at least if you are even slightly handy). I hope this helps others who come across this problem!

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

remove the control panel and there should be a plastic cord/cable that you can pull to manually release the door to retrieve your clothes,certain models you remove the panel below the door if so equipped for this cable
