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 1 year ago.
The door is locked and I can't get the washer our by my self

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
