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.

you can try unplugging the unit for a few minutes and see if that resets, otherwise its a faulty sensor that needs to be replaced.

you will need to remove the top cover and get a screwdriver to move the door latch over. it's a job for an engineer really as you have an electrical problem anyway.
