Indesit WE14UK front loading washing machine door locked
I have an Indesit WE14UK front loading washing machine which this morning has stopped working. The display panel is displaying "door" but it will not let me open even though is at end of programme. Is there any way I can manually release the door?

Re: Indesit WE14UK front loading washing machine door...
Try turning the timer knob/programme selector dial round to a black dot, switch appliance off then back on again. the red light should flash once, then pause, then twice then pause then three times. the appliance should now be reset and your door should open, if not there could be a fault on the main pcb control unit.
hope this helps

its prob your inner door catch or door striking plate the inner door catch has a bymetal strip inside that looks the door they wear out but if the striking plate is worn on the door it will also stop the inner catch to lock it is better to replaice both at the same time they are not to expensive to buy and easy to fit just turn off the power to machine unplug take the top off and you can get your hand dowm the front where the inner lock is undue the two screws which holds the inner door catch lift out and unplug the lock plug in new one and put back you will see how to replaice the outer door catch best to take the door off and lay flat
Hi, I have an indesit IWDE12, I programme the washer which then starts to spin with no water, after 2-3 mins the rinse light, the clock light and the door lock light start to flash and tha washing stops. Does anyone know what this problem could be?
no easy way to open disconnect from mains take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam
