WD61 door wont open

I note your post in August rearding the H/point aquarium WD61. I have an identical probllem - blown a fuse during washing but after I have put in a new fuse and completed the cycle the door lock button remained lit and the door would not open.

Did you fix it, what was involved?

I had to call in a local repairman who opened the top (undid a few screws) and pushed open the door from inside. He then found a frayed wire from amongst the bundle of wires on top and wrapped a bit of insulated tape round the it. That was it... and I paid him his call out charge about £35.00
Hope it helps.

I had a power cut at the end of the cycle on my whirlpool 295 front loading washing machine, this machine is, I think, approximately 12 years old. everything is working , completing all cycles, but the...

Hi just read your posting.There are 2 common reasons your door will not open and they are,The handle on the door is broken or the door lock that is attached to the machine is faulty and not releasing. Did you try turning the machine off at the power point? Have a good look at the handle of the door and see if it is broken.My best guess on the problem with your machine,noting you had a power cut , is the door lock is the part that is faulty.The only way to fix this problem and release the door is if you remove the lid.If you would like me to help you reply back and I will guide you step by step to rectify this fault.Good luck and hear from you soon.

My lg door will not unlock

this kind of door lock is called PTC door lock.It is designed for protecing you from opening the dooe during the washing and spining cycles which may hurt you.So, if you want to open the dooe during cycles,pls press "stop",then ,wait 2 mins,you will be able to open it by then.the other situation is that,the power is cut off during working cycles,solution is:re-start the washer and directly open the door.Pls note that this kind of lock has to work under power

Can hotpoint wd61 be used as just a dryer?

you got to have the drain installed and run a cycle with water in so the the washer has water in so that it can condense the steam and drain it out. hope this helped.

I have an Aquarius WD61 washer/dryer. The door will not now open.

No date on this that I can find. Can you move the dial to a different setting? If so, just move it a fraction to see if it will engage. If it does engage, then you will need a new timer, goes under the dial. If it is a computer panel, try resetting it on another load setting and put it on the final spin.

Godd luck

Hotpoint WD51 fuse issue

is it the motor that got hot?, if so then check the motor carbons for wear, as these heat up when worn, also if the carbons are fine check the pump and filters for blockages, this makes the motor spin while water is still in the machine causing the motor to overheat, and subsequently tripping and blowing the fuses etc hope i have helped a little
