HOTPOINT 9526 DOOR STAY LOCKED AFTER FINISHED THE CYCLE


The first thing to check is - does the washing machine still have water inside? If there is obviously still water inside the machine then this is possibly the cause of the door not opening. Drain the machine.

Can't see any water inside

If you can't see any water inside then it may be caused by various faults listed below. Here's a list of the most common causes of a jammed door -
  1. On some machines if the pressure switch doesn't reset to empty it keeps the door lock energized. If this is the case though, unplugging it should allow the door lock to cool down and open after a few minutes.
  2. The water hasn't pumped out properly (or a blockage in the pressure system is holding the pressure switch on) - but only if the washing machine has a pneumatic (air operated) door safety lock (a rubber hose connected to the door interlock and connected to a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water forces air up this tube and locks the door)
  3. The water has pumped out properly, but the pressure switch hasn't reset due to a faulty pressure switch or blockage in the pressure system - or the water hasn't pumped out properly and the pressure switch hasn't reset because of the water inside. A faulty pressure switch, or blockage of debris inside the pressure chamber bottle could also be trapping the air that's operating the door lock (if a pneumatic lock is fitted - not many have these days).
  4. The door interlock has just jammed
  5. The door catch, handle, or some part of the door catch mechanism is broken and not opening the door
  6. ****** (a device that detects the motion of the drive belt fitted to many older Hotpoint washing machines which "pecks" at the belt when the door handle or button is operated) is broken or has fallen off
Opening a jammed door Do not take the lid off and reach inside the washing machine to try and release the door if the washing machine is still plugged in as you will be electrocuted.
The most common cause of a jammed door is likely to be a faulty door interlock. Sometimes you can release the door from the inside by manipulating the door interlock or forcing the door catch out from it. But they sometimes just have to be broken away from the machine. If you need to do this make sure you -
  1. Unplug it
  2. Break the interlock off from inside the machine, don't force the door or you will just break more parts

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.

Door won't open on wf000


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. One of them is the part you describe which is called the ******. With some older Hotpoint models, there is a cable that runs from the door interlock to the motor. When you operate the door catch or button, this part "pecks" down onto the drive belt or the end of the armature's shaft. If the drum is moving, the ****** will slip on the rotating belt or armature and disengage the door interlock. If the drum is not moving, the ****** meets resistance and the door opens. Therefore if the ****** has come off, or is loose, it can stop the door opening. When you attempt to open the door does this part move?
Other things that can stop the door opening are -
A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoint’s - 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.

I have an F8 fault on my hotpoint wf860p machine....any ideas?


f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit

THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY

F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.



Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.



If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

Washing machine fills with water but wont shut off


If the water continues to come in without the washer being on, then you have faulty inlet valve, replace.
If it stops when you turn m/c off, then you probably have a sticking water level switch, or a blocked pressure chamber and /or pressure hose.
the pressure chamber and hose are located at the rear right side of the m/c .
Remove lower rear panel, and remove the hose with the long thin hose attached to it this is the pressure chamber and hose, thoroughly clean and fit back.Test it for leaks.
This should solve the problem.
While in the back I would suggest you remove large black hose and clean the filter located in there as this could also be a factor in it overfilling.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Just moved


E13 code means Pressure switch Fault

To check :- Remove Plug First ( Remember Safety First )
The pressure switch is at the top, its move likely to be a blocked pressure bottle, which is under neath the tub accessed via the rear bottom access panel 3 to 4 screws. the bottle is on the side of the filter with a small clear tube going up to the pressure switch. Clean this bottle out.

E19 code means Power Failure during Programme
