Zanussi Zwg 1140M Door Won't Open !


Recommended Posts

Hi all this is my first post so please be gentle.

My Zanussi washing machine tripped the MCB half way through a cycle. I manually drained water out and upon closer inspection discovered that a couple of wires down towards pump had worn through sleeve( poor build quality) . Resulting in earthing out on part of the metal casing. Ive re insulated wire and the washing machine works, but the door will not open !

Im guessing that the interlock has been damaged by the shorting out.

Any way of removing the interlock without damage on this model ?

Will a new interlock fix this issue ?

Any help or experience would be appreciated ?
