Machine doesn't recognize door is closed

My Hotpoint Ultima 1000 keeps telling me the door is not closed properly when clearly it is. I've tried taking the door off and re-fixing it but to no avail. Any ideas?

Open the door, and look closely at any little plastic latches to see if a small part hasn't busted off.

They usually have plastic prongs that tell a small switch inside the hole it goes into, that the door is shut. It's a toughie.

I'd google around for it. Use the talking marks " ". Like google something like "Ultima 1000" space "door won't close" or 'dryer' 'door won't close'.

That will bring up dozens of other people who've asked questions to OTHER sites.

Tried holding it shut? DOes it work when you stand there? You could tape it with gaffer tape.

Methinks, its a latch problem, something's busted off.

Outlet Pipe


Your machine has detected a problem with draining. The place to check is the filter located at rear of machine.To access it remove plate at bottom rear of machine & you will see a black pipe hanging vertically from the drum secured by a spring clip.The filter is in this pipe. If this is clear take off other end & check pump is not obstructed.Be aware that there will be water in these pipes so may be wise to take machine outside.Let me know if problem persists.

Hotpoint WF860


when the machine was flashing door this was telling you that either the door was not shut properly, try it again, or the interlock switch was faulty, chances are its probably shorted out and blown the circuit board, take care and remove the board to check for signs of blowing, if no signs then i would replace the interlock and start from there, ps i am a retired engineer and have had the same machine myself
