Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of you situation.

I'm going to open this up to my colleagues so one of them can help. Please don't respond (even to acknowledge this post)until you get a response from us. If you respond first it will only delay your answer.

What is that actual model number of the appliance please... This will be on a label stuck on the inside of the door or on the door opening; if it can't be found there, then look on the fascia panel, or rear of the appliance.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The door is locked and I can't get the washer our by my self
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 4 months ago.

I'm confused; please explain the full fault with your appliance and tell me why it is that if you are replacing the valve, the door should be locked beyond your control
