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

How do i open my machine?. wash is done but the machine just wont open ???


The usual ways for most front load machines are to try reset of the cycle(using normal reset buttons), completely unplug the machine for 5 min and try again or to turn off machine then press and hold on/off button for 10 sec. Unfortunately this is most often due to a faulty door lock and you will need to have it replaced.

Does not spin properly


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect. In this case it seems that the motor is faulty , the drive is jammed or the motor starter capacitor is weak.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Hi my washing machine is only going throught half it's cycle 7 not pumping out water


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Colins, Please, I have already checked: the volmetric with PTC door interlock, motor, electrovalves for water fill system, pressure switch, the drain pum, heating element, heating sensor, all the...


Ok..Not sure if this applies to your model however.The drain pump can be activated by a Float micoswitch if the machine is leaking water, also if the drain hose is too low then it will syphon away the water......Both of these will cause the drain pump to empty the machine..

The door on my Bosch washing machine 1605 is stuck on shut


Hiya,
the door not opening is normally a sign that there is still water inside if you can try a spin cycle or if you have a drain option try using that & if it was the water then the switch will trip & you should be able to open the door again.

Hope this helps

My washing machine is Neptune. The front door is locked and water is inside with wet clothes.


If you have a Maytag Neptune MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker then your wax motor might be the issue. See www.neptunehelp.com for info on the faulty door latch wax motor and how to fix it.

If unplugging machine does not allow the door to open then remove the 4 philips screws on the soap dispenser bezel ( under lid) and remove it. There should be a colored plastic cord in there you can pull on to unlock the door, It is an emergency pull cord.
