FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

My Tenants have broken the door release handle on this WD860 and I need to get the door open to remove the clothing and dismantloe the door for repair. How can I do this?


Remoove plug from socket, then remove top from machine I think on this model you will need to remove the small caps on side of the top. Then there are 2 screws to remove this will allow the lid to be removed. then you can normally reach inside to release the door.

Red light about door icon flashing


Sounds like a door lock problem. May just be a weak spring in the door handle which helps push the door lock pin against the contacts in the door lock switch. If you open the door and push on the pin or operate the handle the pin should return positively to its closed position, if very weak return then spring wants replacing. Take door apart to gain access to handle and spring and replace spring if broken.

Door will not close


It could be a faulty door interlock, or a broken or weak spring in door handle.
You would need to take the door apart to check this..
What ever is the problem, it is related to the lock or door handle.
Hope this helps.

disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down to the door interlock and feel for the end of the door peg. push this sideways and you can sometimes release the door

Wahing machine Tricity Bedix AW1260W-Door problem


probably handle mechanism broken. to open is a bit difficult.
disconnect from mains and take top off.
feel down the cabinet front on the side where the door handle and opposite the door handle you will find the door interlock. in the door interlock, you will find the end of the door peg. force this towards the middle of the machine and with luck the door will open.
anothetr method is to break the handle off and use a small screwdriver on the door peg
