Emergency door opening

In case of power failure or appliance failure the appliance door remains locked. The washing programme continues, when the power is restored. If the door remains locked in case of failure, it is possible to open it using the emergency unlock feature.

Before opening the door:
Make sure that the water temperature and the laundry are not hot. Wait till they cool down, if necessary.
Make sure that the drum is not rotating. Wait till the drum stops rotating, if necessary.
