SOURCE: Washing Machine Door won't open

I had the same problem. I went through all the steps on this thread to no avail. Finaly I just pryed the thing open - with no damage, thank goodness.

Once open I saw that the latch in the door didn't move when I pulled the handle. The problem it seems was in the latch on the door itself. If you end up this problem and want to get wet clothes out, just stick a flat-head screwdriver, behind the door latch into the horseshoe-shaped metal bit and lever it open - no prying necessary.

Not sure how I'm going to fix this permantely but at least I got my wet clothes out and can do laundry as long as I keep the screwdriver near by.

To fix - I'll either need to figure out how to disassemble the door and replace the latch mechanism, or just buy a whole new door.

Tecnik Washing Machine 9290 Red light not gone out so not able to open door. I switched it off by mistake but put it on and did the whole cycle again but still on and unable to open door . Please help


from the manual always WAIT.
DOOR
Use the handle to open the door.
During the wash and dry cycle, a special safety device keeps the door locked.
To open the door, turn off the machine using the ON-OFF push-button and wait about 30 seconds after the switching off the warning light before turning the handle to open the door.
also...
WARNING: Set the cycle only when the machine is off. - Always turn the control dial clockwise. If you pass the desired position, make a complete turn and reset the dial to the
exact position.

When the remaining time is one minute but wait for long time but can not open the door


The door locks need to 'cool down' after the end of the cycle. So with one minute remaining you will have to wait for the cycle to finish this minute and a further 2 minuter approx for the door to release. Thats how the machine is designed to work unless there is a seperate door release feature.
If there is you should find the instructuions in the hand book

F-28 flashing. Door will not open


While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes to try the door. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. You can also plug off for half an hour to reset.

Door won't open


Check your instruction manual to see if there is a childlock feature that has been activated.
Is there water in the machine or has it completely rinsed out?
If you switch the power off and wait a couple of minutes, can you then open the door with the power still off?

These machines do not release the door immediately after wash cycle is complete. After final spin cycle wait until you hear a click sound.The door will then be able to be opened. This takes uproximately three minutes.

When the wash cycle is complete, the door doen' open?


the door may be locked electrically, pneumatically or mechanically. if you unplug it and wait 3 mins see if it opens. if not keep unplugged and check the door lock from the inside to see if there is a tube connected to it- if so pull it off. if no go the lock may be jammed.
