I’m not sure which sub to post this in, but hopefully you guys can help. My washing machine decided to go ballistic and moved several inches forward while running. The laundry room door was closed and now the washing machine is blocking me from being able to open the door more than about an inch. All I can fit through the door is my hand and a broom. I’ve tried pushing the machine back with the broom but had no luck. I would just remove the door from its hinges but they’re on the other side and I can’t open the door wide enough to access the screws.

What can I do? Is my only solution destroying the door?
Update: Thanks everyone! I wasn’t expecting this to blow up so much. I managed to get the door open by using the end of the broomstick to start the cycle again. Once the washer started moving during the spin cycle, I used the other end of the broomstick to push it back but still couldn’t get the door open on my own. Once my boyfriend got home, we waited for the spin cycle to start again and I had him push it back with the broom while I used my entire body to push the door through. This is something we’ll be laughing about for a while.
