SOURCE: check drain light. machine won't open

You probably have a bad drain pump and the door lock wont release because of it. You're gonna need to replace the drain pump and if there's water in the machine, it's going to be a messy repair. I'd recommend a repair man on this job. If not order the drain pump for that model off the internet, take the top off, take the soap dispenser out, take the screw out, take the display board off carefully. Then take the front off, unscrew the door switch. on the door seal, use a flat head to take the ring out. If you got a drain at the bottom, take those screws out. Remove the door. There's going to be water everywhere if you didn't drain it out the front (if it's an option.) Replace the drain pump. (Kind of a little puzzle on every model.) Put it back together.

Door wont open; water not draining. What's going on?


THe water must be totally drained and it is not. So go back into the area that you used to open the door and look for the drain. If you use that manual drain have a wet vacuum cleaner ready there will be a flood. When you take that drain plug out there should be a filter attached and you will find that a sock or something is plugging it up and not letting it drain. There is a chance the pump motor is bad but usually it is plugged drain.

Door will not open have wash cycle


Switch off, put in spin/drain cycle and switch back on; check water is fully drained and then check filter. If not all drained, lower hose to ground level and drain to a bowl.

My Asko W6021 won't start and the door won't open when buttons are pressed, although the power appears to be on (the red light comes on after power button has been pressed)..


Open the drain hatch at the bottom left of the machine. Open drain pump and check to make sure tat there are no foreign objects in drain pump. Object in the drain pump will prevent the unit from operating properly. If there is water still in the unit, you can use the drain hose to drain the washing machine. If you would like to open the door manually, disconnect power, remove screws holding red plastic handle in place. pull handle.

Door lock light is on door is not locked and


Hi,


Make sure you are allowing the washer to completely finish its cycle before opening the door. It is normal for the door to lock at the end of a cycle. The locking mechanism keeps owners from opening the door before all of the water has been drained. If the door on the washer is locked, select the "Drain" or "Spin" options on the front-load washer. This will completely drain the water from the system and unlock the door, allowing you to open it.

Thank you !!

Cherokee jeep internal lights not turning of draining battery also central locking not working having to do everthing from switch on door also alarm goes of everytime i open the door


one of the doors may not be properly closed. Check the spring by the door side, it may be weak. I recommend replacement. In the interim, use asoft object to pack this spring. the inner light will go of and battery will stop draining. Check all the fore doors to determine the one at fault. mostly driver or front passenger side.

Inside door lights stay on after engine is turned off


Check all doors for a sticking door open sense switch. Check all over-riding interior light activation switches are off. If all the above are ok, check for a sticking interior light relay.

Bosch axxis door won't open


michele99, So when you put it on drain, do you here the machine trying to drain the water? After it finishes draining, (you have to wait a few minutes, it should then have a blinking light
on the Finished/Door locked light.
Are you waiting for it to finish?
