Ok are you able to open the door?

Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.

Ok remove the plastic trim on the bottom of the washer at the front.

Then from there look on the right hand side of the filter and you will see a green plastic tab.

Un clip this from the cabinet and then pull the tab down and at the same time pull the door handle and the door should open from there.

If it does then close the door again and if it locks again straight away then the door lock is faulty. You can still open it again by pulling the green tab again.

Then replace the door lock and that should cure it from there. Now for this its worth fixing as its not that expensive. Plus even if it was anything else Hotpoint do a fixed price repair for £110 all in so for that price they will call out and fix it for that price so that's another option for you as that's cheaper then a new washer.

So try the above and that should allow the door to open anyway.
