    Place handle face down on flat surface

    insert catch insert making sure foot shape points to the right

    place spring so that bar of spring crosses the back of latch

    feet end of spring should be on the right hand side pointing down

    insert pin to make sure all parts are in line

    remove pin, insert assembled part in lock space and re insert pin probably play around with this but will fit eventually

    I have the same problem and am having trouble following the instructions previously posted. Could a better explanation be provided? Many thanks

    Can you start from the beginning?!  Do I need to remove the door before fitting the handle?  if so do i remove from the front of the machine or from the hinge (so hinge still attached to M/C).  DO I need to prise open the 2 parts of the door?  how do i do that?

Guest solution 15/3/08-worked fine for me.
To help Jane, you need to remove front of door only (remove screws from inside of door + carefully prise part with screwdriver + be careful glass doesnt fall on floor.
Then proceed to fitting solution- remember it is only the last part of solution when you re-insert pin that you need to insert the handle into door.
Good luck.

Why can no-one supply a photo. Even with the last set of instructions there are still a lot of assumptions, e.g. which way is the handle pointing when it is face down!

Unable to open door


Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.

Thank you !!

I pulled too hard on the inside door handle now the door wont open from the inside the latch doesnt seem to catch

likely the rod from the handle to the latch has fallen off or the handle is broken where the rod need to take the handle off and perhaps the door panel as well and take a look in there. It isn't hard to do but too long to write out. Either get a chiltons or haynes manual or just be careful and remove all screws. the bottom part is held on by push in "Christmas trees" or clips and just pulls out.

My door catch on the front passenger side is stuck in a strange lock position and now I can't even shut the door. to be noted the interior door handle for that side did not work this is an 8th generation...

If I understand you correctly and I think I do, the door catch or sometimes called "door check"can break. When this happens the catch rod comes out of position and wedges against the door jam. The door catch will have to be replaced. The door panel will have to come off to replace it, so while your in there you can reattach the inner door handle cable back into place to fix your inoperative inner door handle concern. -hope this helps.

I have a hotpoint few12 washing machine and have just replaced the interlock door lock as door locked indicator kept flashing even though door was closed,sometimes happened mid cycle,and had to open...

check the spring on the door handle/catch,the easiest way to check this if you close the door and it indicates that the door hasnt locked,push the inner part of the handle towards the machine,if it locks then the spring is worn.(this is more commen than the interlock).

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside

Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

Hotpoint aquarius 1000wm 20 I have to bash front door to start

I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
