SOURCE: Hotpoint Door Interlock Switch

If it's anything like the WM65 then I did it myself this evening. Be aware that I'm no professional. POWER SAFE? Three screws on the back of the top cover. Top off Remove the soap/fabric softener tray. Four screws off around the gap that's left. Three knobs to pull off (it helps if you remember which way they are set when you do this!) Take the rectangular control panel off, which should now be loose - it has interlocks on the right hand side, so be careful not to break them. You may need to tie or tape the panel safely out of your way to te top of the machine. Three screws off the top off the door section. Open the door unscrew the two short screws holding the lock plate. The interlock switch will fall off the back of the door, held on by it's power supply. Stick your hand round the back and pull it clear. Swap the mechanism (mine cost £14) Reverse procedure. Good luck. This wasn't the fault on my machine in the end. boo hoo!

Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?


Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

Washing machine door wont open - hotpoint


Hi,
Never reach inside the washing machine with it connected to the mains. The door interlock is always live.
There are several reasons why a Hotpoint door could be jammed shut.
•A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoints - always breaking) you can sometimes get the door open if you push the door firmly in as you open it
•If there is water still inside the washing machine, then the door wont open either on these Hotpoint washing machines (not on some others though) If this is the case, when you try to open the door the ****** won't try to move down at all. You can open the door usually if you drain the machine. (only applicable with door interlocks that have a rubber pressure hose attached to them)
•A faulty door interlock
•The pressure chamber can be blocked on some earlier Hotpoint washing machines which gives the same effect as having water in the machine. Basically the washer "thinks" there is water in when there isn't. This would require the washing machine being stripped down to remove and clean the pressure chamber bottle. This cause is only applicable to washing machines where a small rubber hose is connected to the door interlock. This hose allows the door mechanism to be locked and unlocked by air pressure activated by water rising inside the pressure chamber bottle attached at the other end on the tub. Gunge can block the very small aperture where the pressure hose fits to the pressure chamber bottle.
