    Hello the display has gone blank and when you press a button you get three beeps
    I have tried holding the wool button on power up and get the correct symbol but on pressing start it goes blank
    Would this be the main board

    Many thanks

Sounds like the door lock switch has failed,normally they go bang when fail,they start the machines cycle so are important,when door is shut it should click,this engages a timer which keeps door locked switch is live at mains potential,cant be tested have to be replaced about 12 pounds cost,best for a tech unless you feel competent

Hotpoint WMA62 washing machine door won't release


If the machine didnt finish the cycle due to the pump being clogged the door will remained locked also if the lock mechanism went bad, the machine will stay locked. Remove the top of the machine by taking the screws from the top back out. Once removed look down the right hand side and you'll see the lock mechanism, usually with a plastic tab you pull to manually release the lock.

I have hotpoint wma62 and door lock light flashes, machine will not start as door will not lock any clues ???


Hiya,
yes, i can help..

Firstly, lets start simple. Have you noticed the door lever/handle has got "floppy"? or loose? or easy to squeeze?
This is the most common reason, what happens is there are 2 bits of spring steel behind the handle, these either break or become weak, to test this theory, close the door, put your finger between the handle and the door and push the handle towards the glass, if this works then you need a new spring/handle.
Please let me know,
Please rate my help.

Regards
Sussex engineer.

Hotpoint WMA62 front door will not lock


If the door locked light is flashing then you probably have a control module problem.
You could try a new door lock but I don't think this will solve the problem..
Make sure the door is shut properly, and that the door catch is o/k.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

Broken door handle Hotpoint WD860


Managed to work it out, you have to slide the outer door case away from the handle locking mechanism, slide left and move away (after undoing the 6 screws on the inside) :-)

WF100 door wont open


The interlock has jammed, first try gently pushing the door frame on the latch side of the door and then hit the outer door frame with your fist, not too hard but a reasonable bang this may release the door, if this works spray a lubricant into the latch hole in the panel, open and close the door a few times before reusing, if this fails then you have to force the door open, the best way is to remove the lid and manouver the door lock from the inside, either the lock or the latck will eventually break, this is unavoidable, then replace the interlock and any other broken part.
