Easy way is to cut or break away the handle so the start of the door peg is exposed and use a screwdriver on the peg to lever it out

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust


It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.

Thankyou.

Got a hotpoint washing machine aquarius WT540 think catch is broken how can i open the door


If the catch is broken you are going to need to get at it from inside to release it.

This is usually best done by taking the top or back off and reaching in to release the lock.

Make sure you disconnect the electricty and water before trying this.

I cannot open the door on my Hotpoint Aquarius wt740 after it finished a wash. Door handle is floppy and door light is off.


it sounds like you have a broken door handle Disconnect power before doing anthing remove lid , what you will need to do is usining a screw driver or somthing simular look down to where the catch is (you may need a tourch) and look carefully you should be able to to the door catch mechanisim from inside you will need to mimic the action of the door handel but using a screw driver it a bit fiddley but can be done there is no grate force needed and it the catch will only need to move a bout 3-8 mm to open

The door catch on my Hotpoint Aquarius WT540 washing machine is broken. I have ordered replacement parts but need instructions on how to fit them. Can you help please?


You need to seperate the 2 halves of the door, remove all screws securing the 2 halves together, and prize apart.
You will then see how all the parts are fitted.

How do i open the door on hotpoint WD440, latch is broken?


Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.
You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.

Hotpoint aquarius 1000wm 20 I have to bash front door to start


I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
