Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word 'yes'!
Either the interlock requires adjustment if that is physically possible on your machine or the sensor requires checking and possibly replaced.
For me this is a rare quick answer- I normally rant on............................... :-0)

How to remove the detergent dispenser drawer aquarius WML 520


Instructions for the machine, and specifically the detergent dispenser drawer, are here:

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/70853/Hotpoint-Wml-520.html?page=10#manual



It does NOT show how to remove the drawer. It is likely that the top of the machine must be "popped off" to do so. The best advise is to search for a Repair Manual if you simply must get the drawer out. I believe one of the manuals shown on this webpage may be the repair manual:

http://www.index-of-pdfs.com/hotpoint-aquarius-wml-520-user-guide-pdf.html



Most washing machine tops are simply a pressure fit that snaps on to the body. A firm grasp on the front sides of the top and a brisk pull may well pop it off.



Be sure to unplug the machine before you attempt any service!


Washing machines can be full of water AND electricity. That is most certainly a recipe for one, big, hydro-electric

Possible this seems to be an error. You need to start by check the inlet water flow, check the free flow, if not check the inlet valve or the valve drive. Also check the drain pump and see if there is no clogging, Now switch on and check voltage on the inlet valve, if absent check the main program controller. If water flows check

The check drain and check inlet lights are flashing constantly on my miele w 2240 washing machine


I have a Miele W502.
Both lights flashing usually is caused by a water leak into the case of the machine which trips the float switch in the base. You can reset this by tipping the machine forwards at 45 degrees and allowing the water to drain out on to the floor. It will reset everything but if you still have a leak it will trip ou again due to the float switch.

I had the same problem with the 2 red lights flashing, which was fixed by emptying the float tray as above.
On further investigation I found that the door seal had rubbed on itself at the 6 o'clock position and had worn a small hole which was causing the water leak.

To replace or repair the Door Seal you will need to remove the front panel.

1. Turn power off and unplug machine after opening door.

2. Remove the front panel lower kick plate by inserting a thin ruler between the kick plate and front panel about 4 inches from each end and lever down until it releases.

3. Remove the 2 screws at the door lock switch on the front panel.

4. With the kick plate removed you will see 2 screws at each lower edge of the front panel, remove these 4 screws.

5. Remove the spring loaded band from around the edge of the door seal facing you and after that release the seal from the front panel and push in.

6. Remove the hex bolt from the 6 o'clock position just below the door seal on the front panel.

7. You should now be able to lower the front panel out of the locating pins and remove it.

8. With front panel removed you will be able to remove the tensioning band which holds the door seal in place around the drum by undoing the screw at the right hand side of the band at the 3 o'clock position. It is accessible from above with a long bladed screwdriver. Take note of how far it is tensioned on the thread of the screw and try not to undo it all the way or you may lose the nut on the band.

9. Once you have removed the band, slip the seal off the drum and slide the water outlet to the seal from the dispenser.

10. When you replace the seal do not do the tensioning band up too tightly or you will hear it squeak when you spin the drum in either direction.

11.Reassembly is the reverse of removal, taking care to put the door manual release strap through the inner slot in the front panel.

I repaired my door seal with Silicone Sealant and loose weave fabric tape after rubbing it clean with alcohol as i didn't want to pay $100 for a new seal from Miele.

Check drain check Inlet lights flashing any ideas?


This usually means that the water pump has not been able to completely 'drain' the water in your washing machine: this may be caused by obstruction in your Drain outlet or a faulty pump.
Your user manual should tell you where to find and check the drain plug for obstructions (could be Lint, coins, pieces of materials, tissue papers, etc).

Hope it helps!

Washer is Kenmore He2 model # 110.46462501


Hi,
It sounds like you have something stuck in the pump.
To repair
Unplug machine.
Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be carful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.
