Hiya... how long are you waiting? there is a timer door delay.. on nearly all washers now... usually around 2-5 mins!... Wait a few mins and see if this cures the prob.

Door will not release

Make sure you left the machine on after a wash cycle completely finished as turning off may stop the delay timer for the door release. You should hear it click after 3 minutes and door should open.
If this doesn't work, set machine to a spin cycle and allow to complete. Leaving machine on - push the door at the side you open it and keep it pushed. Wait to see if it clicks after safety delay. This could help if the door didn't lock correctly, if its sprained or if something has become stuck in the release mechanism.
If still won't open try this...
On the front of your machine right at the bottom is there a panel about 5 inches high? If so you should remove it by either: pressing firmly at each side as if squeezing it to bend in the middle. At the same time try to either lift the panel upwards or pull towards you. They're usually just clipped on.
Look for a large circular lid that can be unscrewed. This is where any foreign objects have been filtered so they don't continue to the water pump where they would damage it. Often there are things like coins, hairgrips, buttons etc. Make sure you have a large towel as removing the stopper will release some water. Provided your machine has spun there shouldn't be more than half a litre or so. This is normal. TURN MACHINE OFF AT THE MAINS ELECTRICITY before removing any object. Once this reservoir is empty, you should look for a cable. This will either be plastic, or coated steel or similar. It may be tucked away and may have a diagram or arrows or other showing where to pull and which way. This is the emergency door release cable and pulling it should release the door lock. At least you can check for a cause once the door is open.
Hope this helps.

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.

1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.

Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

The comment posted 14 may 2009 it what helped me. DO NOT PRY OPEN the door. Find the release cord inside the soap dispenser,,,you may have to remove the 4 screws and lift it from the washer like i did. I had to lean into the door and pull the cord to release the lock. It was not a system error. The washer was over loaded and although the door was closed and locked...the load pushed the door enough to indicate that it was open and would not wash. After opening the door, rearranging the load and removing some, the door closed and latched locked and was able to continue with the wash. DO NOT PRY OPEN,,,use the cord release first,,,this worked for me.

Getting FL error with Beeping and can't open door now

This just happened to us.

There is a release cord/string that can be accessed from the front of the soap/softner dispenser.

Remove the trays in the dispenser and reach towards the front of the machine. Find the end of the nylon line. Grasp firmly and pull to your left if your are facing the maching. I had to pull a few time before the door opened because I couldn't get a good grip and I didn't know how hard to pull without breaking the string. It might help to push in on the door at the same time, to realease.

I have to say, I was really surprized to find the nylon line as I was looking for a way to remove the tray and try reaching to see if there was a latch release.

Door locked open

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

Washing machine creda front loader

I had the same Problem on a 17112e Creda, I took the top off and using a torch located the red plastic door release mechanism, I then pressed a white button in the centre of it and the door released. I believe that the washing machine was overloaded and auto cut out. I reloaded the machine with fewer items and it is now working.
