Door will not open on hotpoint bwd 129 catch may be broken

Your door lock assembly needs to be replaced to open the door try the following procedure.

To open the door, get a piece of string and feed it into the door recess, work it around until both ends come out opposite the door handle.
Pull the string to the side and with your other hand pull the door open.
You will need to get a replacement lock assembly for the machine which isn't too hard to fit if you are a bit handy with tools.

Door locked

Hi sometimes they become stiff dont worry about breaking it they are pretty sturdy just try giving it a hard pull their should be no reason why its locked as their isnt an electronic lock keeping it closed maybe their is a air vacume and its just stuck with air so try giving it hard pull let me know what happens.
Maybe the seal has become stuck to the door but it still should open ok

How to reset the break Sensor on vw touareg

Hi, You need to open the tailgate (liftgait). Pop off the two screw covers on the light assambly. Take out the two screws, then comes the hard part. You can either pull strait out and hope you dont break the locking pin or use a 2mm flat rope or string, slide it around the outside of the assembly then give a great pull to pop the pin. Be careful and good luck!

My washer will not drain, the door is locked and wont open and d5 keeps coming up on the panel. I unplugged, but nothing will open the door.

if you take the 4 screws out of the dispenser lid you can remove it and find a small green nylon string (looks like weed eater line) pull that and that will release the door. you will need to drain the unit and clear the drain pump as something is likely caught in it
