It appears your lid switch/door latch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hotpoint washer wont work


From the manual page 24:
'Door' is flashing in the display window...
?Shut the door firmly, until it clicks.
The symbol should now go out.

I suspect the door sensor has failed. It thinks you haven't closed the door, so it refuses to do anything at all. It's called a Door Interlock, it has a switch or sensor built into it.
First try unplugging the washer for 60 seconds and plugging back in to try to reset the controller. (Dry hands only!)

If the door interlock is a simple switch, you should be able to check it with an ohmmeter. I would check it first before buying a new one.

The part number is HPTC00085194 or C00085194, here are a couple places you can buy one. You can also find them on ebay.

Whirlpool dishwasher door will not click shut to allow washing cycle to start


Check to be sure the gasket that is between the unit and the door is in its proper palce, it may be knocked out of its normal spot and keeping the door form closing all the way where the latch would engage.

Indesit model widl106 won't spin after the first wash. Lights flash.


If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Washing machine fault


Usually indicates door is not closed properly.
If it is shut securely, and still does not work, then you could have a faulty door lock.
Another possibility is the control unit could be faulty.

First check whether your inlet valve is open on the wall; if that is not the problem check to see that the inlet valves are not clogged with some dirt or something, clean out and refit. Plug off the wall and careful with the water spillage. The final part should be to check whether the water flows into the machine, ie. the entry at the soap dispenser. Simple.
