"close door" message

I have changed the door interlock switch but i'm still getting the message. Traced neutral cable from switch to the PCB behind the front facia panel. It looks like one of the components has popped. Could this be the problem and what is the PCB called? Thanks

    will not start as says close door - but door is firmly closed

  • veepers Dec 03, 2008

    My hotpoint wf325 won't work as it says the door is open, even though it is closed. this has happened before. Each time, after the machine has been moved. How can I persuade the machine that the door is in fact closed?

This is a regular fault with these machines im looking at three of them its definatly the PCB nomally you will see a burt out track or something on the corner of the baord im afraid you will need to replace this part if you decide to do this mark all the plugs on the pcb with coulored felt tip pens to avoid putting them on the new board in the wrong place definatly worth repairing exellent machine

Can dial in programme but when start is pressed all leds and display go out and it bleeps once. Eng mode gives E41 as last error

E41 means door open or the machine is not able to lock the door
(door delay interlock does not close after 15 seconds).
Possible causes:
door open, door delay interlock, wiring, main PCB.

I get err01 which I think is related to the door interlock ,is this a matter of replacing the door interlock or something else

the code is for a door lock issue,it means the door isn't closing properly,most likely it will be the door switch,unplug the washer,remove the spring from around the outside of rubber boot,pull the boot off just on the side of the door switch enough just to change out the switch,put it back time send the model number,i could have given you the part number,good luck

My electrolux ewf 1030 get err 44 help me pls ?

E44 - It means "Door closure sensing circuit faulty".
Replace the circuit board and restart the diagnostic cycle to check further alarm condition.
When the washing programme is started by pressing the START/PAUSE button, the bi-metal PTC (contacts 3-5 on door interlock device, no.3 on electrical diagram) is powered by the triac (DOOR TY) on the PCB: after 2 - 4 seconds, this closes the switch (5-4) which powers the electrical components of the appliance (only if the door is closed). The door interlock prevents aperture of the door while the appliance is in operation.
Microprocessor recognize closure position by sensing circuit connected to J2-1 on electronic board.
At the end of the washing programme, the PCB disconnects the interlock from the power supply, but the door remains locked for 1 to 2 minutes (PTC cooling time).

Error codes E40 andE70 showing on model zwf1640s(zanussi)

E40 is an error from the door locking mech (interlock).this is the bit behind the port hole door frame at approx 3 o clock pos,where the door striker pin goes through hole.

Held on with 2 screws and you need to remove plastic clamp from door gasket to gain access.

Check the Door Switch/interlock or the WIRING for failure in this case and repair as necessary.

Door not closing Zanussi FX1265W 1200 Auacycle

Further to my previous posting, I have now got a new Bosch but I have removed the PCB from the FX1265W. I found that the printed circuit track between the edge connector and the triac has blown. The triac (BTB16) was tested and faulty. New triac is on order (£1.03). I will post again when it has been fitted and the track is repaired and if the machine works.

Hotpoint aquaruis extra WMA A34 WASHING MACHINE

Well its either the door interlock or the pcb behind the control panel....

What sometimes happens is that the door lock will blow the the pcb obard if there is an electrical short and if so you will need to replace both..

however sometimes its just the door interlock..

if you need advice on how to get to it then let us know cheers

it may be the interlock but is more probably the control PCB in the fascia, this is not a DIY repair as it requires programming when replaced.
