Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Bendix Autowasher 800 washig machine. The door lock seems to have broken, with a load inside the machine, and I can't open it to get the load out. The cycle has finished. I think I broke it by trying to open it after I had started the machine, and put to much pressure on the trigger inside the handle.Is there anyway to open the machine without doing further damage, and is this something I can fix myself? Thanks very much

Have the same problem myself.

Remove top panel from washing machine by undoing two fixing screws to rear and sliding panel forward to front of machine.
Door lock is located internally on right hand side, its difficult to reach and I had to loosen the control dial and switches to gain access.
However it may be possible to release the mechanism by touch.
At the back of the lock mechanism the latch protrudes by approx 3 mm if you can see it or feel it you only have to apply some pressure to the projecting end to release the latch.
The broken release lever can then be removed from the door and replaced by a new part which cost about €6.

WFW9200SQ00 Whirlpool washing machine. Door strike doesn't go in the latch, seems a mechanical issue. There is a little white pin inside the latch on the way. Any ideas what can be wrong?


Hello,

Does the door strike seem to be broken and is that what you see inside of the latch asm.? if no the strike is ok i suspect the latch itself has broken apart and your seeing a internal part of it through the opening where the strike fits into, in which case the latch/lock assambly would need to be replaced.

The part numbers are

DOOR LATCH ASM. 8183270

DOOR STRIKE W10217552

My bendix washing machine door does not open after wash cycle ha finished


  1. Is there still water in the machine when the wash cycle has finished? If so, the door doesn't open because there is still water in the machine. Try clearing the filter at the bottom of the machine, in the front. If this doesn't work, check that the drain hoses are cleared. If it still doesn't work, try replacing the drain pump.
  2. Is the "door" light still on? You may have a faulty door lock assembly, or your control board may be faulty.

How do you open a locked door on my washig machine?


Unplug machine from wall. Remove bottom front panel. Reach up inside the right towards the latch assembly. There is a pull down tab at the bottom of the door latch. Pull down on tab, door lock should release. Be prepared to catch any water that may be inside the drum once door is open.

Is my bendixx 1000 autowasher hot or cold fill


Look at the top left rear of the cabinet, there you will see the connections for the inlet valve(s), if there is only 1 then it is a cold fill only, if there are 2 connections , then it is hot and cold fill.
They are normally marked H and C.
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
thanks.

Wahing machine Tricity Bedix AW1260W-Door problem


probably handle mechanism broken. to open is a bit difficult.
disconnect from mains and take top off.
feel down the cabinet front on the side where the door handle and opposite the door handle you will find the door interlock. in the door interlock, you will find the end of the door peg. force this towards the middle of the machine and with luck the door will open.
anothetr method is to break the handle off and use a small screwdriver on the door peg
