Try: Hold down "end of cycle" till the door light goes off.

or Hold down "start" & "pause" button together till light goes off. Caution, after light goes off, wait for 2 or 3 minutes before trying the door, do not force door.

Pl post back result..........

It could be a bad door lock switch. I had taken my machine apart to clean the boot and accidentally dislodged one of the plugs (there were 3 on the mechanism) on the door lock mechanism. I got the same actions from my machine as you are. Since you probably haven't taken anything apart, a bad switching mechanism can cause the same problems.

The door on my Hotpoint Washing Machine WT741 won't open even though the programme has ended. We've tried running the programme again and pumping out but still the door won't open.


The door latch may have broken. You can sometimes open the door from the inside. You will know the door latch is broken if the door handle is floppy. If the door handle is not floppy - then the issue is probably with the door interlock. This is the electronic part that prevents the door from being opened during and after the wash has finished.
Either way - you'll need to get the door open.
To do this, unplug the washing machine from the mains and then move it out from where it is. Tip the washing machine to a 45 degree angle. Don't tip it over 45 degrees as you may break internal parts.
You need two people to do this - one person hold the machine at 45 degrees angle, whilst the other person puts their hand up into the machine - you should be able to feel the door catch mechanism and depending on the model, open the door that way. Sometimes the manufacturer has helpfully put a manual release inside - and sometimes they don't.
If you aren't able to open the door using that method. Get a length of strong string and poke the middle section of the string into the gap between the washer door and the machine body - to the right of the door handle. Use a flat headed screw drive to push the string into the gap, all the way around the door, so that you end up with the two ends of the string on the left hand side of the door. Now have someone put the ends of the string whilst the other person pulls the door handle. If the string is pushed in far enough it will release the door latch and the door will open. It takes a bit of persistence to get it right.
Once you have the door opened you can usually replace either the interlock mechanism or the door latch itself. Parts are easily available online from sites like espares and yourspares.

Can't open door of ASKO W6883


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.

My Tenants have broken the door release handle on this WD860 and I need to get the door open to remove the clothing and dismantloe the door for repair. How can I do this?


Remoove plug from socket, then remove top from machine I think on this model you will need to remove the small caps on side of the top. Then there are 2 screws to remove this will allow the lid to be removed. then you can normally reach inside to release the door.

My old front load whirlpool isn't draining. Someone suggested opening a plug on the bottom left of the machine front that may have gotten clogged but we were unable to open it. any suggestions?


hello,

the solution giving to you i also a way of draining the water from the washer ,

But i will like to draw back your attention back to the drain pipe inside the drum of the washer..... what you need to do to fix up (solve)the problem of the drainage from here is that you have to bale out the waste water in the drum of the washer to see the cloth or dirty that have form up to block the pipe of the water out flow, remove any form of dirty around the pipe that have stop the water flowing as is expected to, with this the problem of blockage is solve.

please note this important information PUT OFF ALL FORMS OF POWER SUPPLY CONNECTED TO THE WASHER.

Thank you and thanks for using fixya.

My buttons aren't working


You have a bad control board most likely. You can replace it yourself if your handy or just have a repairman come and do it.
To do it yourself get the new part from an appliance parts shop using the machine's model number. They should be able to look up the correct part for you. You'll need to open up the whole microwave by removing the top casing. This is usually held on by a couple of screws on the sides or bottom of the machine. Once you have that off, just unscrew the old control board and start moving the wires over one at a time from the old board to the new one, making sure to put them in the exact same spots. Once its all replaced just put everything back together opposite the way you took it apart, plug it in and give it a go. Hope this helps.

Water remains under rubber seal. Water too high in bleach dispen.


Did you try taking the dispenser tray apart and cleaning it? The exit ports tend to clog over time. Best thing I have found is to remove the tray at the end of wash day, rinse it out, dry it and put it only partially in the machine, thereby allowing air circulation. Some water will always remain at the end of the wash cycle...inherent in the design.

As for the gasket, you'll have to wipe it down at the end of wash day and leave the door open to dry everything out. I leave mine open all the time.
