How to open the door of a kelvinator kl75cm washmachine


Try unplugging the unit for 30min. Sometimes this will reset the washer. My washer also has directions in the owners manual how to open when this happens.

How Do I Access Door Catch Inside Machine Body


Hi Steve

Having taken off the top and runners you will need to take off the front control panel then the main front of the machine.
There are two screws on the top, two on the bottom and four on the front (one may be hidden behind the appliance sticker.
There then should be enough room to access the couping without removing the door.
Give it a play first as it probably will just need resetting and you will save yourself a tenner on a new part.
Good luck
Cheers

My hotpoint ultima wt761 door catch has broken how can i open the door


If you have a broken door catch you can get the door open by feeding some garden wire around the right hand outside of the door (between the door and the metal casing of the washing machine).

Once you've fed it in round the top right and bottom right curved corners pull the two ends of the wire to the left, so that the wire pulls against the lock mechanism, and the catch should release.

The door catch on my easi logic 1200 washing machine has broken


The door catch will have to be replaced, depending on model you can buy these from a repair shop for a few pounds.

You will have to open the machine to get to the door catch from inside.

IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.

Remove the power supply as mentioned above, remove the top cover reach down inside and try to open the door, (BE SURE THAT THE DRUM IS TOTALLY EMPTY OR YOU WILL FLOOD THE FLOOR)

I can't advise exactly how to open the door from the inside, beacuse I do not know the make or model No.

If you are successful in getting the door open, the screws to remove the broken catch should be visible just inside the door.

Best of Luck!!

Door handle of washing machine broken


if clothes are still in washer? and machine has finished cycles? then handle broke so unable to open ??? your best option is to unplug/ and if necessary disconnect water supply hoses then remove the top screws from rear panel which also secure the top panel as you will observe ? then pull backwards top panel and loft off ? you now have access/visual of the door catch inside front machine look?? at the catch and you will see how it locks ? you can lever the catch gently and door opens to fit a new door catch is easy diy and not expensive if you are confident usual problem these break ? is the time delay micro switch sticks with age /moisture try dw40 and work plunger b4 you refit door back after replacing handle/catch assy

Hotpoint aquarius 1000wm 20 I have to bash front door to start


I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Interior Door catch broken


You should open machine's upper panel (release 2 screws in the machine's back and slide the cover out) and then you will have an access to it. You should buy a new door catch and replace the broken one. Be aware that you should disconnect machine's power cable before doing it. Good luck
