Hi from the uk susan ? this is not uncommon and easily fixed if you are confident DIY ? and req's a little patience with a posi drive screwdriver if you want to save $$$$s on call out fee ? the problem is most probably the time delay switch which prevents door opening too soon after cycle/machine has finished and the light has gone off then door can be opened if you feel confident ? will help/instructions on how to rectify fault if you reply back ?

How do i fix my washing machine interlock hotpoint hvf 344


The door should have a pin on it that pushes and closes the interlock switch. Check to see that the switch is inadjust ment to trip by turning off the water door open and with a plastic rod or a pencil push thru' the hole in the chasis where the door pin goes through and start the machine. If it starts quickly pull out the pencil, unplug the machine and adjust the switch. Plug it back in. It may continue on with the cycle you just started if not better! If not close the door aand start a short cold wash cycle. If it sounds like it wants to start, turn on the water and let it run thru' the complete cycle.

THE DOOR ON MY HOTPOINT WMA64 DOES NOT REGISTER AS BEING CLOSED


The most common cause of this is the sensor wire inside has vibrated loose and is no longer making a connection to the switch. Those switches rarely fail. It's a very easy fix, only need a screwdriver. I would, however, use a small plastic ziptie to hold the wire to the switch.

Washer door won't open (hotpoint first editon 800)


I have just had exactly the same problem. 10 seconds of washing, fuse blew, replaced it, cycle completed but now the door lock is stuck on. Like you I tried a new cycle but this has done nothing. In the end (and I'm not suggesting that this a remedy to the problem) I unplugged the machine - pulled the door handle til a gap appeared at the top of the door and forced it open by working a pair of scissors in to the gap and pulling. Of course as soon as I shut the door again and turned on the power the lock light came straight back on the and the door was locked tight. Sorry but this is the best I have come up with short of calling some one out.

Smell coming from washing machine


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.
