Door Hard to close

I have the front loader and I just started having problems with closing the door to start a load. I have to slam it shut in order to have the machine to start working and then at times if it does not sit just right it will make a loud buzzing sound

When the machine is switched on there is a clicking sound from the door and the machine won't start. Opening and closing the door and giving it a thump, works after 2 or 3 attempts. Is the problem


Had a similar problem with our Kenmore front load washer, our grandson was caught leaning on door while it was open and it bent the hinge slightly, this misalignment resulted in the latch mechanism trying to lock the door shut( needed as a safety measure to prevent leakage) but it was unable to do so. Had limited luck with lifting the door while shutting it and holding it closed while pushing the start button,but eventually had to replace hinge. Parts man at service desk also advised not to hang wet heavy items on door (don't know why anyone would want to) as the same thing could happen,also don't try slamming door as that could result in costly latch replacement. Hope this was of some help

Indesit wil 153 door red led is flashing after I set washer settings, doesn't start cycle ?


The flashing light means that the machine thinks the door is not closed (The door lock switch is not activating). 99% of the time this is simply a sticky switch and the solution is to give the door a good firm slam shut (Don't get silly here, but it will take a pretty good "teenager slamming the bedroom door in a temper tantrum" type slam).

In the event that this doesn't work, then you're looking at a faulty door interlock switch. They're not that hard to obtain or fit if you're fairly confident. Drop me a comment back here and let me know how you get on. Happy to help further if the above hasn't allowed you to solve the problem.

My whirlpool front loader won't start. The lights are on, the door is closed, but when I push the "hold to start" button, nothing happens. Could the latch be broken?


Two things 1) do you have delay start pushed?
2) the door latch cannot energize and catch the keeper this is a limit switch telling the computer (on board controller) that the door is not yet shut. Worst case try 1 slam of the door it cannot hurt at this point of the game.

LOADED MY BOSCH CLASSIXX 6 1400 EXPRESS CLOSED THE DOOR THEN TRIED TO PUT IT ON A PROGRAMME AND IT CAME UP -0- AND IT WOULD NOT START NO TIMES WAS COMING UP WHEN I TURNED THE DIAL ONTO A PROGRAMME.PRESSED...


this sounds like a door lock issue if the machine does not detect the door has closed properly you will get the same symptoms, try slamming the door shut (not too hard) if machine starts but then does the same thing next time you use it will need new lock it will have gone out of calibration.

you may need a switch but not a door see if you can adjust the door and try shutting it hard as front loaders close snug because of the rubber boot check your power too
