Question about Washing Machines
Hi, I've been suffering from what seems a really common problem with my samsung washing machine - a de error. It's got to the situation now where I can't use my washer, it stopped mid cycle and now won't recognise the door being closed so won't work at all. Thanks to your site I've successfully located and removed the interlock, but to my frustration the spade connector that plugs into it has burnt out and melted. So whilst I can find a interlock switch and could easily fit that the actual spade connector from the wiring loom also needs replacing but I can't find that online to order and fit. Is this because it may be soldered on so may not be a job for a non-professional? Any help / advice would be gratefully received. Thanks!
Even if it is soldered on, if you feel confident you can desolder it off with a soldering gun! Then you could go to a good hardware store and get the size spade lug you need and solder the new one on!

Fixed it - by a process of elimination and logic :) What was worrying me initially was the fact that it is possible to fit the connectors in either position (Hotpoint!).

check the spring on the door handle/catch,the easiest way to check this if you close the door and it indicates that the door hasnt locked,push the inner part of the handle towards the machine,if it locks then the spring is worn.(this is more commen than the interlock).
