Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer
If it makes strange noise, then the door lock should be OK. When the door lock contact is open the machine will not start.
Before doing anything else disconnect power from the appliance.
Since cycle does not start, first part to test if there is no water inside the machine is inlet. Move the machine forward and check the inlet hose at the back, ensure that it is not kinked or blocked.
Check also drain hose. If more water is being detected and pumped out when you start the machine, a blockage at drain hose will result in machine making noise and cycle not starting (drain hose mentioned is the one at the back, not the filter).
As said, if there is water inside the machine, before filling the machine will drain the water. For this same reason, while machine is apart from the wall , try to understand if machine is pumping out water at the start of the cycle. If it is, then go back to the filter (disconnect again first), and double check in there. After that check the pressure switch. Pressure switch detects the level of water in the tub and starts/stop the drain pump. Try cleaning pressure switch screen and blowing into the pipe attached to PS.
If that does not work, then the problem is more complex. Next steps will be testing inlet valve, double checking door lock, and testing motor, motor control unit, wiring and central control unit. Pump is also tested by energizing it directly.
In that case better calling a technician by ringing the number listed in the owners manual. Some of the testing mentioned must be done with machine cycling.

If nothing else works, the washer door can be opened as follows:
•This must only be done in an emergency
if the machine's glass door does not open automatically when the program has finished.
•First check that there is no water left in the machine. If there is water left in the machine and it is not possible to run the Drain program, empty the machine by using the drain hose.
•Make sure that the main power switch is off and that the plug has been re- moved from the wall socket.
•You will find the emergency opener for the glass door in the double sealed bag.
•Open the glass door by putting the opener in the slot to the right of the lock on the door. Push the opener up or down and the door will open.
