Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW12 Front Load Washer
Having just replaced the fromt and rear door over on the machine due to it breaking off near the hinge, the door will not lock properly, so th machine won't start. It feels like it's closing, but the door not locked light is constantly flashing and it doesn't start to fill. Please help!
You may have messed the lock up while the door was braking because of miss alignment-does the door line up now-you may have to replace the lock-cheers Denny

You have probably knocked of the connector or the catch (and on these it is very fragile as I have changed the catch 3 times on mine) is broken

The flashing door lock light is indicating that the door is not closed securely.
Try it again pushing it hard, if it sit still flashes, then could be weaq or broken spring in the door handle, or a fault on the control board.

welcome to FixYa
DL f is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the problem is solved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
