Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer
When my washing machine is loaded and I push the start button, the door locked button flashes continuely and machine doesn't start (As the machine is outside in a garage, i did wonder if the pipes were frozen. So i poured hot water around pipes and tried taps to see if they worked and they all seem to be flowing ok)
The door lock flashing all time has nothing to do with the weather, or pipes freezing up, it is a fault with the washer.
It is unlikely to be a faulty door lock, but could be a broken door catch spring or door catch problem, make sure you can feel the door latch in securely.
the other probable cause a fault on the main pcb where you programme the washer.
Another prob that can occur is a fault on the mptor caused by the brushes shorting on the motor armature, this in turn can blow a track of the pcb, and giving you the flashing light prob.
I would start by checking the motor first, if you are satisfied that the door is closing o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
