Snapped door lock on hotpoint washer/dryer

We have a hotpoint frontloading washer/dryer, during the wash cycle we heard a loud snapping noise and it turned out the catch on the door had snapped. we have been able to duct tape the door shut in order to let it run the rest of the wash (it was half full of water). is this easily fixed, or are we going to have to get a new washer? i am hoping it's something we can do, or is easily fixed before christmas. we haven't had it very long, but our landlord bought it second-hand, so i don't know how old it actually is.

thanks in advance for any help :)

The door on my Hotpoint Aquarius Dryer CTD00 pops open during cycle is it the door catch that's worn?


If the door latches correctly at the time of wash then it is possible that there is a false trigger to release the door, if so you need to check on the lock.

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.

sounds like the dryer heater element has worked loose perhaps and shorted out against the metal dryer box which sits on top of the drum.

Snapped door lock on hotpoint washer/dryer


What you need is a new door latch assy. To fit, remove all screws that hold the 2 halves of the door together, and prize the 2 halves apart, be careful the door glass does not fall to the floor and break.
Fit the new door latch, and reassemble door.
That should solve your problem.
The part is relatively inexpensive.
If you can;t obtain the part locally,then try:
www.hotpoint.co.uk
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
