You have to be VERY careful with the Axxis washer door switch. It is retained in the metal body of the front panel by a slot cut out of the body of a plastic switch and if you slam the door or over load the washer and punch the door in you WILL break the door switch. The door switch is a delicate part and so you must be very gentle with it to avoid breaking it. If it gets stuck you can unplug the machine for a few minutes and the solenoid in the door switch will allow the door to open. You can drain the water out of the bottom at the pump. The switch is worth about $50 and can be accessed via the door seal - again be very careful with it. Other European machines have much more robust door switch designs than this one but it works VERY well if you respect and fear that weak door switch design. Also leave the door open after washing on ALL front load machines to allow it to dry and keep mildew from growing on the door seal degrading it .

I had to wait a while with mine (Bosch Axxis). After having a regular washer, I think these are sh*t. Mine washes for over an hour starting and stopping and making noise. The dryer also takes over an hour.

Usually switching off at the mains and the machine and waiting for a few minutes should do it. Make sure the programme select dial is at the correct position. Have you tried emptying out the water first? (either by putting it on a spin cycle or physically removing the outlet hose from the pump and catching the water in a basin or bucket)

I load the clothes into the washing machine, I turn it on select cycle and the door locks and will NOT unlock. The door will however unlock after the cycle is finished.


Not sure if you're unable to open the door AFTER you stop the cycle. That may be normal operation as a safety measure (won't open until after your cycle has completed). However, if your model DOES allow for opening the door during cycle operations then your electronic door lock may be defective.

Door can't be opened


Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure First disconnect the machine power cable from the wall socket. You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit.
