Turn off the power. The lock is electromagnetic.

SOURCE: Door lock stuck

If the mechanism is jammed, you might have to remove or loosen the entire front panel to reach back to the back side of the lock and work on it.

SOURCE: Oven locked so I can't shut door/operate oven

Thanks a million, solved the problem like a charm. For those that can't find it, it is on the left side orf the OVEN, not the stove. Once you open the door, you'll find it on the frame's upper left side corner, can't miss it. Good luck

You will need to remove the hatch panel, and release it manually. It is a pain in the **** with the hatch closed, but it can be done.

I cannot get my washer to release so i can open it up and switch clothes over.. It has finished its cycle i even made it do another cycle to try and get it to release but it wont.. any suggestions? Kat


There are many reasons why the door may be jammed shut -

1. The water hasn't pumped out properly and the washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock (a rubber hose connected to the door interlock and connected to a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water forces air up this tube and locks the door)
2. Washing machine won't empty water
3. The water has pumped out properly, but a blockage of gunge inside the pressure chamber bottle is trapping the air that's operating the door lock (if a pneumatic lock is fitted - not many have these days due to cost cutting)
4. Door interlock jammed
5. Door catch, handle, or mechanism broken
Try running Just the rinse spin cycle again,

Locking Gas Door will not open when release button is pushed. Solenoid snap can be heard. Trunk pull-cable will not release latch either. Can release be accessed from trunk-side via carpet...


Trunk pull-cable Access Is by way of IN TRUNK, A HIGH QUALITY SPRAY TYPE Lubricant Should Be Used here to Free Up Mechanical Parts, Allowing for Proper Operation of this Door

2004 Chevy Trailblazer - Randomly the liftgate does not unlock. Have to crawl in the back and manually release the lock through the small access hole. Doesn't seem to matter how many times I cycle through...


That's one of those thing you will need to look at. check the electric solenoid to make sure it has a good ground and "hot" connection. Also make sure that the lock mechanism is operating freely and not binding.

Nissan Altima fuel filler release latch broke ... need alternate


Never heard of anything like that.  But those latches are not as secure as most think, just take a flathead screwdriver, put a piece of cloth around it to protect your paint, and pry the door open, just when you think it's about to break something...pop, it opens just like that.  I've done this quite a few times, only broke one so far.  :-P

Asko washing machine w6342 showing f3 and cant open door or operate?


Make sure the programme selector switch is at an end of wash position as these door locks are interlocked to prevent accidental opening during operation. There is also a 2-3 minute time delay after the was finishes so disconnect for say 5 minutes and try again.

If it still doesn't open you will need to get access to the mechanism dependent on what type of relrase mechanism you have;

if it is a push button release with a cable to the lock sometimes you can remove the top panel of the machine and pull on the cable or linkage to open.

If it is a lever type release mechanism this is more difficult to open but you can sometimes reach and release it by the same method.

Always disconnect the machine from the electricity supply before working on it.

Stuck Microwave door


In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
