Re: washing machine broken... on friday...

There is an emergency release for the door to be used in situations like this.

Why is your landlord not available on a Friday? That's a week day..unless you mean after hours. But it is perfectly acceptable to call on Saturday morning.

As a courtesy to the other tenants, you should put a note on the machine "defekt". Then the landlord might have others calling and that means he will be more motivated to get onto the problem.

Did you check the fuses/breaker switches? (assuming you have access to them which may or may not be the case).

Also, just a reminder, in some places the machines still shut down over the lunch hour (in my village between 11 and 12 even in the summer) but they automatically restart.
