We have a computerised AEG 1600 washing machine and the door will not unlock after the wash - tried everything including turning on and off, putting it on another full cycle, and leaving overnight. The first time it happened it un-locked overnight on its own. What is the problem?
The way we were able to open the washer door was to run a short cycle with no spin. If you open the filter door, BEWARE when turning the filter knob (?), as WATER LEAKED OUT QUICKLY. Put down towels before doing this.

try this link..Pull down on the bottom panel and pull it away from the washer. Reach through the open panel and up to the door lock. Find the release ring below the locking mechanism. Pull down on the ring to unlock the door.
To open door during mid cycle, turn off washer by plug and wait a couple of minutes until you hear a click, then the lock light ( assuming it has one ) will release, but make sure there is no water in the tub before opening the door. If possible when door is unlocked, run the drain setting and let the water pump out before hand. Hope this helps.
It seems that your problem is with the lid switch and it should be replaced.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. You have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch.
