Re: Can't unlock door!

Press "end of cycle", & wait for click or 2 minutes before trying the door. Would be good to get the exit hose off the standpipe to let the excess water flow out at floor level. Do not force the door.

Aeg protex how to open door mid cycle

To open door during mid cycle, turn off washer by plug and wait a couple of minutes until you hear a click, then the lock light ( assuming it has one ) will release, but make sure there is no water in the tub before opening the door. If possible when door is unlocked, run the drain setting and let the water pump out before hand. Hope this helps.

Why would it stop mid cycle? You can hear the engine trying to start.

It is not the engine but the motor that makes the noise. perhaps it can be a mechanical issue that stops the machine at mid cycle due to friction on the drive or it can be due to faulty control panel or even a dirty/ clogged drain pump.

It seems that something is clogged in the drain pump assembly and you have to clean it to solve this issue. After cleaning if the issue returns then test the door lock assembly, if bad it should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

SUD message appears

My manual says that Sud means that you are using too much soap. The washer will say this mid cycle until it gets rid of the extra "suds" and should then resume the cycle. If it doesn't, then you have a different problem.
