When the door closes, it latches to a micro switch, remove the panel at the top of unit usually only 2 to 4 screws. make sure you unplug the unit, look from the top were the latch lock is located, see if the micro switch is out of place, it has a small button on the switch that gets pushed when you close the door, you may be avail to move , adjust or bent the mechanism to make it work, if not , 2 thing you can do, replace it, it is only 2 screws or by pass the switch, no recommended. but it works. to by pass the switch, connect both terminal wires toghether and tape them for safety or short. unit works, that is your problem. good luck.

Its normal for the door not to open with water in the machine this is a safety feature the door will not open immediately after the wash cycle completes their is a delay before it can be opened.

Hotpoint washer wmf740. I start the cycle and instead of the drum filling up it came gushing out from either underneath or from the back..flooding the kitchen. What's wrong?


bad hose somewhere? either corroded or came loose from a connection? remove cabinet fill with water then look to see where leak is coming from.

Hotpoint aquarius wmf 740 has error code f5 - what does it mean?


I think you mean F05, in which case it means that the pressure switch is jammed on full.
You need to remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well, and look inside the pump.
This should solve your problem.
