The door lock is there to prevent your washing machine door from opening during a washing cycle.
Does your washing machine not want to start any more, do the lights come on but nothing happens? It could be that the door catch is at fault.
Once your washing machine's cycle is over but the door remains locked shut, it's because it has not been authorised to open as the safety catch is faulty.
