When water is still in the washing machine, the door cannot be opened. The door is automatically locked for Safety Reasons when tub is filled with water.


Note: Add/remove laundry items is only possible within 5 minutes as you start a wash.


Please follow the steps:
1. Press the Start/Pause button to unlock the door. 
    Note: If the water level or the water temperature inside the drum is too high, the door can not be opened with the blinking “Door Lock door lock“ indicator. In this case, wait until the indicator stops blinking. (It will take approximately 1 or 2 minutes until the indicator stops blinking.)
2. Open the door and add/remove laundry.
3. After closing the door, press the Start/Pause button to restart the wash.
