See if you can see why the latch is caught. Give it a strong pull, but not too hard. Perhaps the latch didn't engage properly. You might have to remove the door hinges and troubleshoot from there.

Door wont open on Hotpoint WM51 First Edition


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
In your case you might have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.

hello,

There is disclosed a method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus
for a washing machine that includes the steps of determining whether or not there is an error in
an automatic door opening or closing operation carried out in response to a command to open or
close the washing machine's door; determining if the erroneous operation has been
repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the door; and when erroneous operation has repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the door.
1. A method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus for a washing machine door, the method comprising the steps of: determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation which operation is carried out in response to a command to open or close the washing machine door;
determining if the erroneous operation is repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the washing machine door; and
in the event that the erroneous operation is repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the washing machine door.


2. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: returning the door to the washing machine to an original position in the event that the error occurs.


3. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the step of determining if there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation is performed on the basis of whether or not an inversion occurs in an open/closed state of the door within a prescribed period of time after an automatic door opening or closing operation is initiated.

4. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: clearing the number of errors in the case where the door of the washing machine has been opened or closed manually at the time of occurrence of the errors.


5. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein said predetermined number is 3.

6. A method for controlling the operation of an automatic door mechanism in a washing machine, said method comprising the steps of: sensing a command to automatically open or close a washing machine door;
sensing whether a failure occurs in opening or closing the door in response to the command to automatically open or close the door;
incrementing a counter indicating the failure;
determining whether the counter is equal to a predetermined number; and
failing to engage the automatic door mechanism in response to a subsequent a command to automatically open or close the door if the counter exceeds the predetermined number.


7. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: returning the door to an original position if a failure is detected.


8. The method claimed in claim 6, wherein failure is indicated by a lack of a transition between a door open state and a door closed state within a predetermined time period following entry of the command to automatically open or close the door.

9. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: clearing the counter if the door is opened or closed manually following a failure indication.
