Is there a dl code? If not note the door striker position as the door closes. If you have to push it shut you need a door lock and if the striker is hitting below the latch too much a hinge will fix it. Finally look for a black pin above the striker for any damage as the latch will need to be replaced if broken too. Because with this and a door hanging low will not close the circuit and the ccu will believe the door is open also.

    On the grid above is your door latch, the pin is actually two hooks, like a car door latch, this part above is around 50 dollars and takes 30 minutes to replace. If the strike on the door lines up with the hole on the machine where the jaws are but will not shut then the jaws of the latch are worn out and need replacing.

    Five squares from the right is the latch and three squares from the left is the sensor switch telling the machine the door is shut. Either of these will produce the same result if open or not making contact by being depressed from the door closing.

May tag Neptune 5500. The door locked light never comes on and door is not locked in any cycle. How do I test the switch/lock assembley? And is there a way to trick the machine into thinking that the door...


Grounding in a 120vac environment usually will cause a big spark and pop the circuit breaker. There is a possibility the latch is like a car door latch. If it somehow gets moved to the shut or latched position when the car door is open, it will never close and latch . The latch must be returned to it's normal door open position so that when closed it will latch securely.
Your machine's latch may be blocked by something acting like the car door latch described above. It may be the switch has broken and is the "culprit".

Hi my door on the Miele W487 is not closing, the latch wont hold. Any suggestions?


Hi there - mmm the door locking mechanism may be crook - the only other possbity is the mechanical latch could be faulty - give this a quick try close & hold the door in and initiate a cyle to see if it locks - if it locks then the latching device is busted which may or not be field serviceable.

Miele item #4747471 is the latch unit & #4842085 is a 220/240V door lock not sure about a 110/120V part number.

Cheers

I close washer door but it wont go through cycle


Check to see if one of the two tabs on the door latch assembly are broken. If one is broken, replace the door latch. If the door latch is ok, you might have to replace the door switch and the door latch. To replace the door switch you have to remove the front panel. Remove the two screws holding the door switch assembly in place and drop the door switch assembly down into the bottom of the washer. Remove the wires and transfer to the new switch. Reach up and line up the new switch and install the two screws. Remove the two screws on the door latch assembly on the door, and remove old door latch. Install the new latch and replace the front panel. I hope this helps.

Machine doesn't recognize door is closed


Open the door, and look closely at any little plastic latches to see if a small part hasn't busted off.

They usually have plastic prongs that tell a small switch inside the hole it goes into, that the door is shut. It's a toughie.

I'd google around for it. Use the talking marks " ". Like google something like "Ultima 1000" space "door won't close" or 'dryer' 'door won't close'.

That will bring up dozens of other people who've asked questions to OTHER sites.

Tried holding it shut? DOes it work when you stand there? You could tape it with gaffer tape.

Methinks, its a latch problem, something's busted off.
