The washing machine has finished washing, but when you want to take the laundry out of the washing machine, you find that the door is stuck. In this case proceed from the simplest possible reasons.
Locking for safety reasons
For safety reasons, some programs keep the washing machine locked for a few minutes after the end of the wash. The lock should be indicated by a glowing lock on the display. Wait a few moments and then try opening the door again. A maximum of 20 minutes should be sufficient.
Turning on the child-lock
Sometimes it happens that you accidentally turn on the child lock. Check to see if the child lock indicator light is on and turn it off.
If your washing machine lets you do this, try running the program again. Or maybe just soak it. If your washer has a program to add laundry while washing, turn this option on, the washer may unlock the door.
Restart the washing machine
Your manual should tell you which button combination you should use to restart your washing machine.
Disconnect and reconnect the washing machine
If the washing machine is overheating or is reporting a malfunction in some programs, it may be worth unplugging the machine and letting it cool down. Unplug the washer, wait a few dozen minutes, and then plug it back in.
By no means do we mean forcibly opening the door with tools. However, try pushing hard on it, as if you were trying to close it properly, and then try opening it.
