Question about Creda W100FW Front Load Washer
Cannot open the door to empty
I had the same Problem on a 17112e Creda, I took the top off and using a torch located the red plastic door release mechanism, I then pressed a white button in the centre of it and the door released. I believe that the washing machine was overloaded and auto cut out. I reloaded the machine with fewer items and it is now working.

Make sure the pump has pumped out all the rinse water. If not cycle washer to 9 and pump water out. Push door button and it should open, if not it is the electrical door switch.

Some washing machines have a mechanical/cable release hanging down underneath, perhaps behind the kick tray thing. the cable is attaches to the pulley at the back and it needs to push against the belt squarely to enable the door to open, otherwise, (after making sure it is unplugged) put you hand down behind the front fascia and lift the moveable part of the doorlock. This will not fix the problem but it will open the door.

SOURCE: Door can't be opened
Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure First disconnect the machine power cable from the wall socket. You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit.

Hi Jenny. Do you have the model No. available?
Most common cause of this problem is
1. A faulty or broken door catch.
2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.
Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.
