      Remove the door seal from the front and press the 'pips' that push through the front panel either side of he lock hole and slide the lock hole frame away from the door. It should then hinge/lift away. To fit the new lock hook the hole frame into the front panel and hinge/slide it into position until the 'pips' lock it in place.

      If you have broken the handle by trying to open it before it unlocked then you may just need the handle. For more information see our videos: and

  • Q This is not the same as the original 1 Answer

    For a start it has no screw holes, also it seems to be magnetically operated (the old one was a pin pushed by the door catch also there seems to be nothing to hold the door shut. Yet it says it is the right bit!

      There are no screws. From what I understand from having a play about with the old one I just replaced, Its a electro magnet that pulls a pin down once the door is in the shut possition inside the lock, so the door is unable to be opened, after the washer is turned of the power is cut and the magnet releases and door is able to be opend.
