* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.



When water is still present in the washing machine, the door cannot be opened.

The door may be automatically locked for two Safety Reasons and those reasons are:

• The washer is too hot.
• Water remains in the washer

However, to be able to open the door during the washing cycle, press ‘Stop’ Button.

You also must:

• Select ‘Spin only’ cycle to drain the water
• Wait until the unit cools down.

Note: Only after doing the above-mentioned instructions, the door could be opened safely.
