Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer
Washer doesn't seem to recognize that it has finished cycle, eventually hours later it does and then door will open
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com
The most common cause of this problem is
1. A faulty or broken door catch.
2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.
also worth checking the spring inside the door lock mechanism attatched to the door, as these can become dislodged.
To open the door you will either require an engineer as the repair necesitates the removal of the lid. The engineer will ensure the machine is disconnected from mains of course. He will double check power is off before reaching down inside the machine to press over the door latch, which is just visible as a white pointed object, poking through the door mechanism. The engineer will push it towards the door seal.
Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.
Have a nice day.
