If jiggling the key doesn't work, I found that jiggling something thinner, eg a toothpick or wire nail, works better because it can pass the rotated disks more easily. Push it in all the way and move it up and down.


I've just solved this with two washing machine hose washers (they're the rubber washers that make the seal between the screw part of the hose and the tap, and they cost a few pence).
