SOURCE: Finished, wash and spin lights flashing. Door

I just had this problem! To get the clothes out, open door manually (follow answers on other threads here about opening toe panel and gently pulling down on door release). But as it turned out, I didn't need to remove the clothes, and now my washer is working again.

A local repairman gave me this advice over the phone. Make sure dial is switched to off. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. The second time I tried this, my washer worked afterwards. I've done several loads today with no problem.

Door stay locked after finished washing hotpoint w/machine ref 9526


See if you notice any water still inside the washing machine, if so run another spin cycle to try and remove it as it will not open if there is still water inside.
If you don't see any water inside, try unplugging it and letting it cool off, the lock should release after this

My Hotpoint wdl540 has finished its wash cycle but the lock light remains on and the door is locked. Tried all sorts to get it to unlock including running another cycle.


Firstly, to get the door open, if you unclip the bottom kick plate, you will find a small green tag hanging down on the right hand side. It is a door lock bypass. if you pull gently down on the tag about a centimetre, while it is pulled down, you will be able to open the door.

Turning to the problem its self, two issues can cause the door to remain locked. In order of which is more likely:

1) While it's ucommon, it's not unheard of that the 3 wire connector that clips to the bottom of the door swich inside the chassis develops a poor connection. Typically, this will cause one of the connectors to arc and burn the connection on the connector and if you're unlucky, the door lock mechanism as well. Remove the lid of the machine. Remove the door lock mechanism by unscrewing the 2 screws that can be accessed through the door aperture and lift the lock mechanism out to examine it (Note that the green tak is on a long strip that connects to this mechanism, so take care to lift this away in conjunction with the lock as you remove it. You may need to replace the connector and possibly the switch too.

2) Since power to the door lock runs through the motor circuit, if the motor brushes are heavily worn, the door lock won't disengage until they are replaced. This is absolutely counter-intuitive and it took me a few years of experience to figure out this little gem!

Hotpoint WMA62 washing machine door won't release


If the machine didnt finish the cycle due to the pump being clogged the door will remained locked also if the lock mechanism went bad, the machine will stay locked. Remove the top of the machine by taking the screws from the top back out. Once removed look down the right hand side and you'll see the lock mechanism, usually with a plastic tab you pull to manually release the lock.

Cycle finished but door won't unlock, please help


normally, front loading machines have this bypass cables in case this things happens, if there is a small opening at the front to acces the drain filter, open it up then look for a small plastic pc with a ring at the end. this is the pull release cable of the door lock. pull it downwards and the door will be released.

if you do not have the small opening to access the drain filter, you can tilt the machine to its back, ( be carefull, its very heavy) then reach for the plastic ring underneath to pull to release the door lock.

tnx 4 using fixya..
