Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer
Here is a video that shows someone closing an Asko machine. I think you just have to get your hand in that place where she shuts the door and pull.

Welcome to FixYa.
To answer your question, "i have an Asko 10505 washer. how do you open the door?" Aside from the door lock switch on the control panel (shown below), you can open it via the manual door latch safety release by the pump.
Even though the image above is the 12505 it's essentially the same, To access this latch release with these Asko machines you must first remove the access panel below the door.
The image I attached above is an example of a access panel I had to remove and disassemble to inspect it. There will be a red loop attached to a string next to the pump and fastened to the inner metal panel (not shown here) via single torx screw, if you remove the screw and pull the loop, the door will open.
Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

The washer has to be turned ON for the unlock button to work.

it is most likely your machine may have a draining problem. if it cant drain the water out the door wont open. if you open the small door at the front bottom of the machine you will find the little black drain hose. unplug the hose off the door and drain machine. when the machine is empty try powering on and opening the door. if still no luck you will see (in the same location) a red pull ring. undo the screw holding the ring in position and gently pull until the door releases. it would be worth undoing the button trap lid to access the pump and check for any blockages (most common coins **** pins etc) let me know how you get on.

SOURCE: asko 10505 washer will not spin
Hi, 2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know. Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others. Good Luck
