If your door hinge is broken or door handle is loose and you can't open the door it's likely the door handle is broken and it needs replacing. The most common part the door handle to break is the in a plastic molding, and this is usually due to excessive force being used to open the door when the door is locked shut.

Safety first, always unplug an appliance before carrying out any work.

the first thing you will need to do is to peel back the door seal to give you access to the rear of the door hinge there is a retaining plate which you need to keep hold of while you are undoing the screws this will stop it falling inside.

Once you have removed the door you need to place it on a flat surface covered with a tea towel this will stop scratches appearing on the door frame,

 The next thing you will need to do is remove all the screws around the Frame, then using a thin screwdriver flat blade prize the two halves of the door apart.

This will now give you access to the door hinge,  and also the door handle,  the door hinge is pretty self-explanatory and can easily be replaced.

  the door handle and catch  will need to have the pin slid out  so this will come apart,  it is very important to this point  to make sure you have some good photographs of the way  washing machine door handle was assembled,  Slide the pin out  replace the door handle  and reassemble the machine  in the Reverse process
