Re: door will not release after wash completed

You may have a failed door latch.  Have it replaced and it should be ok.

Door stay locked after finished washing hotpoint w/machine ref 9526

See if you notice any water still inside the washing machine, if so run another spin cycle to try and remove it as it will not open if there is still water inside.
If you don't see any water inside, try unplugging it and letting it cool off, the lock should release after this

Miele W1712 honeycomb care front loader the door will not unlock after cycle has finished, it has been 24 hrs

Try unplugging the washer's electrical connection, wait for about 20 seconds then plug back in. See if that resets your cycle to Start mode from an unfinished mode. If not, see if you start another cycle, such as a spin to complete any draining of water. It might have blockage that is keeping the water from draining thus thinking the cycle is not over - or- a bad sensor not telling the computer that the cycle is over and it's OK to release the door lock.

Washing machine does not complete wash cycle. Gets to rinse than stops. Does not rinse or release water. When I manually move the dial to spin, nothing happens?

You need to check the pump it sounds like you have something in it .Clean out the pump and the unit will finish the cycle if the pump is not burnt out.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Water not spinning out. clothes still wet when finished spinning.

check that you have water going down the machine drain pipe when the machine would normally be draining, if not could be a faulty water pump or a water pump blockage the machine is spinning whilst still full of water I am suprised you can open the door after the wash has completed

To make sure it is not due to any water left that you cannot see, lay the drain hose down to floor level, and drain off any remaining water. The door locks works on air pressure, so will not release until all water has gone.
If it still does not open, then it could be the door release mechanism is faulty, or the belt come off.
This being the case, then the only way to open the door is from inside the washer.
Remove top cover, and reach down to the door lock and pull up on the lock from the bottom.
Hope this helps.

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.
