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.

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

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?

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
