Re: Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing...
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

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.
