My malber wd2000 door won't open


Malbers use a thermal (heat acting) latch to hold the door closed, so it stays latched for about 2 mins after being turned off. This is to give you time to think before you open the door and possibly spill water all over your feet. When the little bi-metallic piece cools off, it bends to one side (inside the latch assy) releasing the catch, and the door can be opened. Sometimes, the bi-metallic part bends OK, but the latch catches and won\'t release. It just needs a little vibration to free it up. A smack to the latch area (on door or face of Washer) will free the latch.

I tell my customers: Don\'t pull too hard on the white door handle. If you can\'t open it with your little finger (seriously) it\'s not ready to open!

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start


sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

Candy CNW136 Washer Dryer. The door will not open.


you might be able to get at the cable to open the door by taking the top of the washer make sure you unplug it first as you will have to put your hand in it its a tight fit though or the cable could of come off thats why it wont open

Hi i have a tecknik washer dryer, the machine did not finish a spin cycle left the clothes soaking, the machine door did open eventually but i get no lights on the panel , i have checked the fuse and it is...


If the washer started a spin cycle and some water was released, I would suspect a block drain line.
And the locked door reenforces my belief.

Tecknik does not have a good drain cover over the output line and sometimes something small like a sock will clog the line. If you disconnect both ends of the line you should be able to unclogg it. But be ready to deal with the soap and water released.

Hoover washer/dryer VHW854D SHOWS ERROR CODE E11. Machine switched off and door opened. Wash cycle had not started. Door closed and machine switched on and all works OK. Any ideas?


I have exactly the same problem. Hoover Service Centre told me to tip a bucket of warm water into the drum and leave for 5 minutes before switching it back on. The idea is that the machine may be affected by the cold weather. Needless to say it made no difference and Error 11 remains - I am expecting an engineer on Thursday 23 I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

Door on WD420 will not open


There is an electrically controlled lock on the door that prevents opening while the machine is in operation, and sometimes for a short period after a cycle has finished.

Sometimes this lock can get stuck and requires some persuasion to release.

This may sound odd but try it:

Make a fist with your hand and bang the door, near the latch, with the side of your fist. Do this firmly, but obviously not so hard that you will damage the door or, more importantly, your hand. This can often release the latch that should have released automatically.
