First, try unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes in order to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to reset minor glitches with the unit. If the washer is still locked following a CCU reset, then you will need to use the manual release. The following link explains:

If you still need assistance, please let me know. If the problem reoccurs, take note of any error codes that may appear and also let me know. I hope this helps you.

Machine flashes F then dl. What can we do?


There's a fault detected with the door lock and switch assembly. The door lock is not working or the door lock switch is not activated. This indicates that the door lock and switch assembly is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced to address the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected and pull the wire out of the groove of the door gasket.

My door lock has locked with the door open , how do i get it to unlock ?


There is a manual unlocking tab located at the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly. Disconnect power to the washer before accessing it.

Remove the three screws attaching the toe panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. Prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall for an easy access of the screws.

Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly on the right side.

There is an emergency access cord provided for the manual unlocking of the washer door and can be accessed by removing the dispenser bezel. Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Once the bezel is removed, look for the nylon cord near the door lock assembly through the opening left by the dispenser bezel. Pull the cord away from the door lock assembly to pivot the mechanical opener and push the locking lever into the open position. Open and close the door several times then start a new cycle.

Check the door lock assembly if the problem persists and replace it when necessary. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Access to the door lock assembly requires the removal of the front panel, dispenser bezel, and lifting of the top cover.

Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off.

Open the washer door and remove the two screws securing the door hinge and the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Do the same to the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening.

Disengage the front panel posts from the clips located on the face of the cabinet by grasping the upper part of the front panel posts and pressing in on the outer edges then twisting it inward. Once the front panel posts are released from the cabinet, tilt the front panel away from the cabinet and remove it.

Remove the two 5/16" hex-head screws securing the two top cover hold down brackets; one on each side. Swing the brackets to the outside to unhook it from the lip of the top cover then lift the top cover to expose the door lock assembly. Prop up the top cover to prevent it from falling back into position while accessing the door lock assembly.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the door lock assembly and the two mounting screws then rock the top of the assembly forward and lift it off the front shroud assembly.

Clean the wiring terminals and the connectors then reseat the connectors several times. Replace the door lock assembly when the problem is not resolved.

Install the new door lock assembly in reverse of the steps given above. Review the steps thoroughly for easy reassembly of the washer. Make sure the wiring harnesses are properly and firmly seated to the door lock assembly terminals. The door lock assembly is part number 22004435.

Hotpoint wm63 door locked


The door lock has failed in the locked mode, only way to open door is to force it open.
Remove top cover, screws at rear , slide cover back away from you.
Down at the front right side you will see the lock, it is reddish brown in colour, with 3 wires attached.
Force a long handled screwdriver or similar between lock and cabinet front, and force the lock, you may have to break it, but it does not matter as it is faulty anyway.. The door will then open.
Remove the 2 screws holding the rest of the lock , and pull up with wires still attached, .
Transfer wires to new lock on the same connectios, and refit.
Test it, if it still does not work then you may have to fit a new door latch and or spring.
Plz rate this solution and if you have any further probs, plz let me know.

Door locks open by themselves randomly


some possibilities

The power door locks may self-activate or cycle on some vehicles. This may be caused by a misadjusted front door lock linkage, excess solder in the front door power window switch, water infiltration of a potential open wire harness connector inside the front doors, wiring harness chafe on the door check strap, or a damaged Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) key fob.
