Servis easi logic 1500


the doors can be dismantled and a new handle fitted. if you go to google. type in the make, model and end it with spares, it should come up with companies that supply parts. in the uk i use espares.
changing it can be fiddly but take pictures as you strip the door down so you get the pin, catch, handle and retaining spring in the right positions

Broken catch


what has happened is that the ridiculously flimsy plastic that the catch spring pushes against has snapped off. I tried getting it plastic welded but still too weak finaly I took off the door unscrewed the transparent central part(remembering to keep the little black plastic rod at the top that operates the microswich when the door closes then snapped off a piece of hacksaw blade about15 mm long and put it where the plastic had been. I carefully lifted the end of the spring over the blade and while holding it screwed back the transparent part so that it held the blade in place. Works really well!

Door will not open on creda ied12, finished cycle looks like the handle is loose


Needs a new door handle kit which is the easy part.
the hardest part is getting the door unlocked, play with the handle to unlock it, or take the top off and try unclip the catch from the interlock .
You may have to break the door plastic, don't break the interlock though and buy a new door

The door catch on my easi logic 1200 washing machine has broken


The door catch will have to be replaced, depending on model you can buy these from a repair shop for a few pounds.

You will have to open the machine to get to the door catch from inside.

IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.

Remove the power supply as mentioned above, remove the top cover reach down inside and try to open the door, (BE SURE THAT THE DRUM IS TOTALLY EMPTY OR YOU WILL FLOOD THE FLOOR)

I can't advise exactly how to open the door from the inside, beacuse I do not know the make or model No.

If you are successful in getting the door open, the screws to remove the broken catch should be visible just inside the door.

Best of Luck!!

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck

Interior Door catch broken


You should open machine's upper panel (release 2 screws in the machine's back and slide the cover out) and then you will have an access to it. You should buy a new door catch and replace the broken one. Be aware that you should disconnect machine's power cable before doing it. Good luck
