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 !!

Door stay locked after finished washing hotpoint w/machine ref 9526


See if you notice any water still inside the washing machine, if so run another spin cycle to try and remove it as it will not open if there is still water inside.
If you don't see any water inside, try unplugging it and letting it cool off, the lock should release after this

Door light flashing and unable to use the washer


If you have ascertained that the door is closed properly, and that the door handle does not feel floppy or weak, then chances are it could be faulty module, as this supplies power to the door lock.

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

Can't open the kick plate of my samsung j845 washing machine


Happened to me too today. As I was pulling the handle, a piece inside snapped. The handle felt loose, as though it wasn't pulling the catch. To get the door open, I used a screwdriver. I pulled the handle as far out as I could, so that I could get the screwdriver in. The dark black metal part has to be levered away from the washing machine - in the direction the door would open. That will release the catch and then the door will open.

After the door is open, the challenge is to remove the handle. You'll need to undo all 10 (or so - from memory) of the little screws, so that the inner part of the door comes off. Be careful as you get to the last one - things will fall away. The handle and the small broken tab just fell out for me. Once the handle is out, you can put the door back together again. I use a small hex key to help open (and close) the door. With no handle, the catch springs a bit too far over for the door to close, so you'll need something (e.g. 1/8" hex key) to hold it over a little. So now, I can use the washing machine while I try to find a new part.

Door of indesit washing machine no opening model no WM12X


First thing if this unit has an electric lock you probably open the door at the wrong time and threw it out of sync. First try to do another load from the beginning cycle and let it finish. If this don't work unplug your machine and then try. I hope this helps you.
