Welcome to FixYa.

Have you checked the pump to insure the filter isn't clogged, or do you know where it is and how to check it ? In the event it is clogged or the filter obstructed, will prevent the door lock from releasing.

This is by design, but it's easy to confirm or dismiss.

Check as follows...

Let me know if any of this isn't clear and I'll attempt to help you move forward. Once you've cleared the pump filter or ruled out it was indeed blocked or not, you can now pull the manual door lock release located in the same area.



Let me know how you make out. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck. Please take a moment to rate the info provided for you here today at FixYa.

Testimonial: "Feedback was excellent. Instructions easy to follow and we have just started our first load. And we probably have over $2 in change from our pump!"

My Asko W6461 spins a great deal of vibration. I have tried to use smaller loads to stop it but it continues. Could it need releveling?

The "inside" of the machine should move pretty much during wash and spin, but if the whole machine is vibrating alot, it could be a levelling problem. Could also be a problem with the shock absorbers, but that is rather uncommon:)

With my Asko W6461, Right as the spin cycle starts, it sounds like something hard is banging against the drum (outside it) but inside the washer. Often, the spin cycle then does not complete. When I turn...
