You should open machine's upper panel (release 2 screws in the machine's back and slide the cover out) and then you will have an access to it. You should buy a new door catch and replace the broken one. Be aware that you should disconnect machine's power cable before doing it. Good luck

The left back door won't open from the outside, it will only open from the inside.

Sounds like the door linkage from the outside handle to the door catch is disconnected / broken. Recommend take off door interior trim and have a look at the little metal linkages. Haynes manual for your vehicle should show how.

First turn the micro door upside down and shake it this may dis lodge it make sure its unplugged and rotating table is removed.If you can see the piece try tweezers or needle nose pliers but again make sure it is unplugged during any handling period!
Second UN plug the device remove its cover with phillips driver or what is needed after it is removed go to the safety switch where the piece is located remove it and shake the piece it may come out if not just replace the complete safety switch

Drivers door wont open

If it were me , I'd remove the inside door panel and take it from there. It may be that you can pry open the lock mechanism with a screw driver or a similar tool, allowing you to open the door - which obviously you must do. Even that, though, will not solve the cause of your problem. You may wind up at the dealer.

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.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Jason, I have the same problem... the catch on my Zanussi dryer has broken. I've ordered a spare part... and remembered how I took the thing apart.
I'd have to show you... it can't be put into words. LOL
Hopefully by now you've figured it out. (Just seen the date you posted this).

Hi We have a Zanussi Turbodry and when i tried to open the door it wouldn't move and i have now broken the handle off!!! How do we open the dooe?? Thanks Lynsey

Get a thin screwdriver and poke it in between the door frame and the front of the washer where the door latches in, push hard and see if it will release that way..
If no go, then remove top of washer , and with a long screwdriver or similar try to release the door catch from inside the front of washer, you may have to lever it open, and possibly break the door lock in the process.
There really is no other way of releasing door.
You obviously will have to replace the whole door handle assy, and the door lock.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a 1998 BMW 528 I. The drivers side door latch will not catch. So door will not close or lock

Wit the door open, using a srewdriver, use it to throw the catch, then see if the latch locks into position. if it doesn't then a new catch will be required as the locking latch spring inside the latch would have broken
