Re: WF100 door wont open

The interlock has jammed, first try gently pushing the door frame on the latch side of the door and then hit the outer door frame with your fist, not too hard but a reasonable bang this may release the door, if this works spray a lubricant into the latch hole in the panel, open and close the door a few times before reusing, if this fails then you have to force the door open, the best way is to remove the lid and manouver the door lock from the inside, either the lock or the latck will eventually break, this is unavoidable, then replace the interlock and any other broken part.

Door stay locked after finished washing hotpoint w/machine ref 9526

See if you notice any water still inside the washing machine, if so run another spin cycle to try and remove it as it will not open if there is still water inside.
If you don't see any water inside, try unplugging it and letting it cool off, the lock should release after this

Door on Hotpoint WT540P Won't open

I have solved this problem now. I removed the top of the washing machine and opened the catch with a screwdriver to release the door. The plastic handle on the door has snapped so have ordered a new one on line for £5 plus p+p. Should be able to fit it myself. Hotpoint wanted £100 - £160 to come out and fix it. Beware!!

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped
