:-> If it's the direct drive model, to get to the internals, remove 3 screws from the back of the control console. Remove console and you will see two brass colored clips. Stick a screwdriver into the front side so it engages the front lip of clip and push forward. This should release clip. Pull whole washer frame forward, toward you, and lift off. Be sure to undo the lid switch. You should now have access to the internals. Hope this helps,

Hi, I have a zanussi wwashing machine model= ghg1200apm. The door won't open. I plugged out the machine after the wash and when i plugged it in again, the door wont open. Can you help me?


Hi.

The door does not open because there is water inside the machine. To open the door you need to empty the tub first.

To empty the tub disconnect power, open the door at the bottom of the machine's front side, unscrew the drain filter cap and collect water using a container.

Usually that is enough to allow the door to open. If the door does not get released, try running a cycle again.

If still no luck, then the door is locked either because the pressure switch detecting water level is clogged with soap or because the power surge has damaged some component. In that case the machine must be partially disassembled to reach the back of the door opening mechanism. The door latch is reachable either from drain filter access or from top of the appliance.

Emptying water through the drain filter and/or restarting a cycle usually is enough to release the door lock.

Regards.

Door locked and will not open. i ran an empty cycle to see if that would work and it doesn't.....thanks! Margit


IF water is left in machine then door wont unlock, check pump, run drain cycle. If pump runs but doesnt remove water, then check filter at bottom (small door on bottom front) water will come out when this is done. If washer is completely empty of water and door locked then you may access lock release tab from bottom or reaching down from top to lock asm. Then check lock

The washer fills and empties but no spin or agitate


I assume by empties you mean it pumps the water out.
That being the case you will need a way to make sure the timer is sending power to the motor. If it is emptying by itself then you have a siphon problem and need to raise the drain hose exit above the top of the washer or install a siphon break.

Cannot remove empty cartridge


moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpgThis may sound crazy but I had a friend call me and said he couldn't get his empty ink cartridge out of his ip3500. Same problem I think.
First you probably did this but wont hurt to ask. Did you lift the top deck cover up, then where the word CANON on the front panel is, did you open that by pulling it toward you. All this has to be done with the power on so the Ink holder can cycle to the center, so you can easily remove an ink cartridge. Hope this helps. Bud
