It requires some specific tools to open it ,and you might don't have such kind of tools,and if somehow you open it ,the washing machine may not work properly .so it would be better to get it repaired from your area where you live to get it repaired..

My kenmore 98702 stacked washer/dryer washer lid does not stay open


Underneath the top unit (the dryer) there should be a spring loaded catch that holds the door open. See if it is gummed up and stuck or possibly broken off.

We have the Ariston Margherita front loader washing machine and cannot get the door open


if the machine is full of water pump blocked or broken if machine empty needs new door interlock or pressure switch blocked or broken


FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Belling SGE12X broken door handlw


it's not an easy job to replace a door handle, but to release it for the door to open, turn off the machine at the outlet and unplug. Take the top of the machine off and slide your hand down to the door catch. Depending which type of catch it is, you should either be able to push down a small lever on top or push up a small lever on the bottom or the door catch.

I hope this helps

Broken interior Door catch


You should open machine's upper panel (release 2 screws in the machine's back and slide the cover out) and then you will have an access to it. You should buy a new door catch and replace the broken one. Be aware that you should disconnect machine's power cable before doing it. Good luck
