The Famous Forry :

Thankyou for using 'The Famous Forry' on Just Answer.

The Famous Forry :

This seems like the door interlock device has failed and therefore requires changing. They are relatively simple to fit and you can expect to pay about £30 for the lock. I can help you source the spare part if required.

Customer:

is there no other quicker solution? i have a ton of clothese to wash. i would need to check with my landlord first.

The Famous Forry :

No it is against the law to by-pass door interlock devices. There was a case recently where a 2 year old lost his arm, so very very dangerous. The part is available by mail order and can be with you by Tuesday in most cases or monday if you can find a local shop with it in stock.

Customer:

ok, i will have to check that with my landlord see if he or insurance will cover. satisified with the answer
