Question about Hotpoint WMA40 Front Load Washer

Door will not lock on my Hotpoint Aquarius WMA35 1100 Spin

The door to my washing machine will not catch when shut and will not lock if held shut and a washing cycle started. The door springs open and currently the only way to use the machine is to gaffer tape the door in position.

I have replaced the door interlock switch but I am still having the same issue. Could this be a fuse or a more sinister electrical fault?

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.

Door will not open


Hi,


Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.



Thank you !!

Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open


Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Hotpoint aquarius 1000wm 20 I have to bash front door to start


I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.
