Hi,
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.

Hotpoint WMA62 washing machine door won't release


If the machine didnt finish the cycle due to the pump being clogged the door will remained locked also if the lock mechanism went bad, the machine will stay locked. Remove the top of the machine by taking the screws from the top back out. Once removed look down the right hand side and you'll see the lock mechanism, usually with a plastic tab you pull to manually release the lock.

My Samsung VRT washer was working fine. The cycle appears to be finished but the door remains locked. I get no response from any of the buttons. You would think that the washer wasn't getting any...


I don't know if I have the same model SAMSUNG front loader, but I have a similar problem. The door has decided to stay locked at the end of the cycle. I can turn it off and on and even send it through another cycle, but at the end of the washing, it drains, goes to END but does not go the extra step of unlocking, like it usually would about 1min after ending the cycle.

My clothese have been through about 6 different cycles, hoping it will magically clikc open at the end. I assume they are very clean, but getting dizzy.

Any help out there?

Hi i have a tecknik washer dryer, the machine did not finish a spin cycle left the clothes soaking, the machine door did open eventually but i get no lights on the panel , i have checked the fuse and it is...


If the washer started a spin cycle and some water was released, I would suspect a block drain line.
And the locked door reenforces my belief.

Tecknik does not have a good drain cover over the output line and sometimes something small like a sock will clog the line. If you disconnect both ends of the line you should be able to unclogg it. But be ready to deal with the soap and water released.

I had the same problem.....The start/pause button would flash during a cycle and the washer would not finish the cycle. After reading on this forum that there is a filter/strainer inline with the drain, I tried this solution.
Remove the (3) screws that hold the lower front panel (Just below the door)
Once the panel is removed, you should see a white plastic strainer hooked to the washer drain.

Please a large bowl under the opening and unscrew the knob/handle, pull the filter/strainer out and clean all of the lint/trash out of this area.

My filter/strainer was clogged with a baby sock, 2 doilies, a fewe pennies, 2 dimes and lot's of lint.
I believe all of this debris was causing musty odors in the machine as the lint would stink due to dampness.

Once I cleared out this filter/strainer the problem and my odors went away
I wish GE would add this "EASY" step into the owners manual for proper care and maintenace.

Thank you for letting me know about this filter/strainer as it did resolve my problem

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?

Won't turn back on and finish cycle


Press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds, & wait for 2 minutes to open door. You can then re-start the wash. It is possible you cld hv damaged fhe door switch. For front loaders you do not open the door during a wash, never. Less problems.
