Cant open the door on my washing machine

My washing machine HOOVER HP11 1100AA has finished its cycle the timed lock has finished but the door will not open. There is a spring on the back of the handle and when you pull the handle the spring moves a hook, I think this is not happening as the hook is not moving into the unlock position. How can i open the door without smashing the glass?

If you can get a small thin metal object in there and jiggle it around, you may get it open. if not, sheet metal panels will have to be removed to get to there. do not smash the glass!

The washing machine has finished its cycle, beeped that it is finished but the red lock button is showing so I cant open the door.


There could still be water in the machine. Clean the filter and check machine is empty. Also it could be the door lock.

Switch off and for Door lock fault or Motor fault .
Check both are ok and make sure nothing is jammed or restricting the operation as it is according to which main board is fitted to the machine.

Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Indesit wd 125. Wash cycle had finished, door lock was off but


Unplug machine, take lid off and locate the door lock. You will have to use a small screwdriver or something to release the lock. Then replace your door handle.

Door wont open on my washing machine hoover select 1500


I just had the same problem and came here looking for a solution...I went back one last time and tried to unplug. That didn't work. Then I put it on drain/spin and after a minute interrupted by hitting the pause/cancel button - and it released! I am so happy!

Hoover 2305 washine machine wont spin


Your problem could be caused the interlock but it could also be that the machine is failing to drain in the time alllowed and therefore the machine will not spin, before buying a lock check the sump hose and pump area for blockages.
