What model is it?

Perhaps try: open the filter door at bottom turn screw with coin, door should open. That's for a 1600 model though.

AEG ERROR CODE F9
Found this on the net,hope it's revevant.

DOORS NOT OPENING
HOLD PREWASH AND SHORT WASH BUTTONS TOGETHER THEN TURN KNOB FROM OGG TO THE SHORT SPIN CYCLE POSITION..ALL THE LIGHTS LIT UP I TURNED MACHINE OFF THEN ON AGAIN VOILLA I AM NOW WASHING AT HOME AGAIN AS THE SITE SAID IT IS LIKE PUSHING THE CTRT-ALT-DEL BUTTON ON YOUR COMPUTER TO RESET
Also could unplud for 5mins,then retry,but i expect you have tried that.
good luck.

Our dishwasher would not work, the manual said press and hold the start button for 10 seconds or so to clear all the settings, worked a treat, just might work for you Washer?

forum member tried the card option no joy on that one.

martjc would not have a clue how to find the brushes or replace them. the machine is getting i am considering temp renting unless i can get this one going. main aim to get the door open still.

sapins afraid no joy on that option.

please keep the advice coming in re getting the door to open not too keen on using a hammer.

Go to their web site download the manual and it will show you how on either page 29 or 30 depending on which model you have, it would appear to involve a coin or small screwdriver.
