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

How to unlock door


Do not take the lid off and reach inside the washing machine to try and release the door if the washing machine is still plugged in as you will be electrocuted.
The most common cause of a jammed door is likely to be a faulty door interlock. Sometimes you can release the door from the inside by manipulating the door interlock or forcing the door catch out from it. But they sometimes just have to be broken away from the machine. If you need to do this make sure you -
  1. Completely disconnect the washing machine from the mains
Break the interlock off from inside the machine, don't force the door or you will just break more parts

How Do I Access Door Catch Inside Machine Body


Hi Steve

Having taken off the top and runners you will need to take off the front control panel then the main front of the machine.
There are two screws on the top, two on the bottom and four on the front (one may be hidden behind the appliance sticker.
There then should be enough room to access the couping without removing the door.
Give it a play first as it probably will just need resetting and you will save yourself a tenner on a new part.
Good luck
Cheers

My interior lights won't turn off and kills my battery where's the fuse or how do I fix it?


It appears that one of the door operated switches for the interior light is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light staying on. It could also be that the "Off/ Door/On" Control switch on the main interior is faulty. Check each door switch by operating manually with finger with door open to see if light goes out.

It this check makes light go out then it could be that one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in and observing if interior light goes off, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact. If these checks don't produce results then there could be a problem with one of the door switches being faulty and making constant contact.

Something is rubbing on the interior surface of the dryer drum.


Take the front panel off. First you have to remove the door hinge screws and the screws on the other side. Then slide the panel up. And the bottom should rotate away from the bottom. There are links out there how to do this. If you further have trouble email me. Good luck.

The door catch on my easi logic 1200 washing machine has broken


The door catch will have to be replaced, depending on model you can buy these from a repair shop for a few pounds.

You will have to open the machine to get to the door catch from inside.

IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.

Remove the power supply as mentioned above, remove the top cover reach down inside and try to open the door, (BE SURE THAT THE DRUM IS TOTALLY EMPTY OR YOU WILL FLOOD THE FLOOR)

I can't advise exactly how to open the door from the inside, beacuse I do not know the make or model No.

If you are successful in getting the door open, the screws to remove the broken catch should be visible just inside the door.

Best of Luck!!
