can someone please provide instructions on what goes where?
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.

It's easy enough to fit, after undoing the tamper proof screws holding the inside molding to the frame of the door you need to gently pry the molding off. You will see some insets in the molding where you can do this. The catch handle components will be revealed, before taking the steel pin out with the pliers take note of how the spring sits. Pointy nose pliers and tamper proof sockets were the only tools needed.

there is a lever if you can pry it open a bit and get some type of hook in there and pull it across you can get it open i can get it with just a flat blade screw driver but a have had heaps of practice
Hi, 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 !!
hi 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).
the spring may have gone in the latch on the door.
close the door and push the handle part by hand to move the latch into the lock more firmly.
to replace the spring or handle assembly remove the screws from the back of the door and prise the front off.
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.
it's not an easy job to replace a door handle, but to release it for the door to open, turn off the machine at the outlet and unplug. Take the top of the machine off and slide your hand down to the door catch. Depending which type of catch it is, you should either be able to push down a small lever on top or push up a small lever on the bottom or the door catch.
Open the door fully. Remove the door by unscrewing the two screws in the hinge. You will need a T20 star bit/screwdriver for that. Place the door face down on a flat surface. Remove the 6 screws (Phillips) holding the inner door ring. Starting from the hinge side, gently prize off the inner ring. Its a bit like taking the lid off a Tupperware. Remove carefully and take the glass and the pespex window out. With a pair of fine plyers gently remove the brass pin holding the door latch assembly in place. TAKE NOT OF THE POSITION OF ALL THE PARTS. Note that the brass pin has a ridged section and the orientation of the catch and spring. Remove the handle from the front of the door and replace. Rebuild in reverse order. Getting the pin back in is tricky. First line up the pin and the handle and the spring. Push in the pin using a gentle twist and push motion. When one side is in place ease the metal catch under the sping and line up with the pin. Once all thats in place keep twisting and pushing the pin until about 3mm is showing. If at this point you are tempted to take a hammer to it, either call a service engineer or retire to the pub for a couple of hours. Next is easy. Put the perspex window in place (convex outermost), sit the glass on top of it with the thicker part to the bottom. Fit the inner ring over the latch and jiggle it til all the parts sit comfortably. Tupperware the face back on, replace the six screws and refit the door onto the washer.
