Door Lock light Flashing

I had a power cut ,and now I can not get the machine to do anything . It has power , but every time I set a program to run , it throws a up door lock warning light and will not start . I have powered it down , etc ... , and tried most iof the standard stuff but to no avail ... Is there some sort of reset switch as I think it is stuck in some sort of cycle ??

Re: Door Lock light Flashing

You cld try 3 things:
1 Find the button on your panel which has the 'key' symbol, press and hold this down till the lock light goes off.

2 Hold down 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the light goes off.

3 Press 'end of cycle' button for 3 seconds, lock should come off.

Pl post back results. Rate if helped.

Re: Door Lock light Flashing

IF this is the A WMA model then im affraid to say that you have blown your program board.. This depending on the extent on the damage can be repaired but 7 times out of 10 it usually is not...

if you was to remove the front pannel by unscrewing the screws around the soap draw section... and remove the panel.... then detach the board from panel you will c where the largest plug is connected to the board that its is blown.....

P..S Removing the top cover makes removing the front panel a lot easier... The screws are near the front on the sides....behind the little clips

Hotpoint 6kg washing machine Aquarius wash light indicated door lock indicator flashing machine won't fill any ideas thanks Brendan checked filter ok

Many or even most washing machines will not run if the door lock switch is not working. Open and close the door a few times to see if the light stops flashing. You could press on the door where the latch is and see if that makes a difference.

The door lock flashes constantly - Indesit WIA101

Switch on machine and start its program. While it is running then turn program selector control to TOP position. After a few seconds ALL lights should flash and machine should stop. It ought now to have been reset to normal.
