Washing machine wont start - close door message

I have a Hotpoint WD71 washing machine that will not start. After pressing start it just says 'door close'. despite repeatedly opening and closing door, it just won't start. Is the fault likely to be the door interlock switch and if so how is the easiest way to get access to it to replace it?

I have a WD71 Hotpoint. It was working fine, I have just moved house, reinstalled it. On my first wash when I have selected a program it then starts beeping and on the display it just roates through the different spin options whilst beeping constantly. I have tried pushing start but nothing happens?

Hi.

Most likely faulty door lock or door catch.

To access it, remove the clamp from drum front seal, and remove the seal from the front of the cabinet, undo the 2 screws that secure the door lock, and remove.

To test wether the lock is faulty or not, put a link wire across the (L) and (C)

connections on the lock, the m/c should now work, if it does not, then you have

a more serious problem.

Many or even most washing machines will not run if the door lock switch is not working. Open and close the door a few times to see if the light stops flashing. You could press on the door where the latch is and see if that makes a difference.

There is disclosed a method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus
for a washing machine that includes the steps of determining whether or not there is an error in
an automatic door opening or closing operation carried out in response to a command to open or
close the washing machine's door; determining if the erroneous operation has been

1. A method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus for a washing machine door, the method comprising the steps of: determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation which operation is carried out in response to a command to open or close the washing machine door;
determining if the erroneous operation is repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the washing machine door; and
in the event that the erroneous operation is repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the washing machine door.


2. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: returning the door to the washing machine to an original position in the event that the error occurs.


3. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the step of determining if there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation is performed on the basis of whether or not an inversion occurs in an open/closed state of the door within a prescribed period of time after an automatic door opening or closing operation is initiated.

incrementing a counter indicating the failure;
determining whether the counter is equal to a predetermined number; and
failing to engage the automatic door mechanism in response to a subsequent a command to automatically open or close the door if the counter exceeds the predetermined number.


7. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: returning the door to an original position if a failure is detected.


8. The method claimed in claim 6, wherein failure is indicated by a lack of a transition between a door open state and a door closed state within a predetermined time period following entry of the command to automatically open or close the door.
