SOURCE: asko washing machine w6342 showing f3 and cant open door or operate?

Make sure the programme selector switch is at an end of wash position as these door locks are interlocked to prevent accidental opening during operation. There is also a 2-3 minute time delay after the was finishes so disconnect for say 5 minutes and try again.

If it still doesn't open you will need to get access to the mechanism dependent on what type of relrase mechanism you have;

if it is a push button release with a cable to the lock sometimes you can remove the top panel of the machine and pull on the cable or linkage to open.

If it is a lever type release mechanism this is more difficult to open but you can sometimes reach and release it by the same method.

Always disconnect the machine from the electricity supply before working on it.

On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

Call the manufacture it will be under warranty if it's only 6 months old as the machine will have to be torn down to get to the defective switch, just the top will have to come off if your lucky.

Front load duet washer wont start because the door cant lock and we cant open the door.

You need to replace the door lock/switch. It is quite an easy job but is a tight fit behind the front so a bit tricky to get the old one out and the new one in.

The door wont open red light on door what s it means?

it means that the washer thinks that it is still running and you need to by pass the safty switch that is on the door to get it open the switch is there so you cant open the door while it is in spin cycle. most washers you can see the switch under the lid and just push down on it and it should open the door for you

You could try to force the door open by inserting a screwdriver or similar at the point where then door latches in at the front of the washer, failing that, you will have to remove the top cover, and force the door open from the inside.
You are probably going to have fit a new door lock.
Hope this helps.

Just bang the door again until the error goes away. The door is not lined up and won't latch properly. At least that is what ours does. I usually slam the door on my machine.
