Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems the error is "od" not "do" which means that the door has not opened after two complete wash cycles and the door switch did not open since the last two final spins. To resolve this issue leave the washer unplugged for 10-15 minutes. After doing this if still the error appears then its means that you have a stuck or bad door latch. You can also try to clean the door locks, may be you can use screw drivers for this. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

The door on my Hotpoint Washing Machine WT741 won't open even though the programme has ended. We've tried running the programme again and pumping out but still the door won't open.


The door latch may have broken. You can sometimes open the door from the inside. You will know the door latch is broken if the door handle is floppy. If the door handle is not floppy - then the issue is probably with the door interlock. This is the electronic part that prevents the door from being opened during and after the wash has finished.
Either way - you'll need to get the door open.
To do this, unplug the washing machine from the mains and then move it out from where it is. Tip the washing machine to a 45 degree angle. Don't tip it over 45 degrees as you may break internal parts.
You need two people to do this - one person hold the machine at 45 degrees angle, whilst the other person puts their hand up into the machine - you should be able to feel the door catch mechanism and depending on the model, open the door that way. Sometimes the manufacturer has helpfully put a manual release inside - and sometimes they don't.
If you aren't able to open the door using that method. Get a length of strong string and poke the middle section of the string into the gap between the washer door and the machine body - to the right of the door handle. Use a flat headed screw drive to push the string into the gap, all the way around the door, so that you end up with the two ends of the string on the left hand side of the door. Now have someone put the ends of the string whilst the other person pulls the door handle. If the string is pushed in far enough it will release the door latch and the door will open. It takes a bit of persistence to get it right.
Once you have the door opened you can usually replace either the interlock mechanism or the door latch itself. Parts are easily available online from sites like espares and yourspares.

Door won't open and I can't find the release


I'm talking about machines used in Europe. It is normal that you cannot open the door few minutes after finishing. It is protection from electrostatic electricity. But if you still cannot open the door call authorised service. What type of machine it is about? Some solutions used to be offered in manuals.

Due pulling of the door forcibly the door interlock switch has damaged. So the door cannot lock properly &r the door lock switch is not functioning. Replace the door interlock switch.

Door light turns on when you start the machine but turns off a couple of seconds after that and the washer won't do anything. It's a frigidaire aft7000eg0. Any ideas.


check the door interlock sensor. Somewhere there is a tab or button that lets the washer know when the door is closed. If this switch isn't being triggered it could be that the machine thinks the door is open and won't function.

When washer starts it usually makes a clicking noise know it is humming and nothing happens the door is locked and wont open


your main belt is broken or loose i would suspect the latter,the reason the door will not open is the machine has started a wash cycle and because the belt is not able to finish the cycle the door wont open so the progam is not finished,switch the machine of at the mains and the door will open after 10 mins.But the problem remains the belt.please rate this answer thanks.adrian,,,,,,,,,

Washer stops w/ 19 min. left to finish and door pops open.


the same thing happened to our washer and a friend told us to take off panel below door and there's a opening that's covered with a circular plastic cover, open manually and remove all the junk that's accumulated from all washes, careful it may leak a great deal of water! Try that if anything else, unless you've already had it serviced!

I'm looking to try and solve yet another issue with the same washer...

It usually takes 2 minutes after the wash to open the door; do not force the door. Doesn't matter if the active light is on. Just try.
