New Door Lock - Machine does nothing

Hi, I have and Hotpoint Aqualtis AQGD169s. I used the machine in the evening and the next morning, I went to put a load in and the door would not lock. My husband called espares and ordered a new lock and followed inline video instructions which looked easy enough. The new lock was diffrerent to the old lock. The old lock has two connectors and the new lock has 1. We called espares again, who had no clue that this machine had this issue and did not have a solution. We returned the part and then thought it best to contact hotpoint. Explaining the issue to them, speaking to three different people with three completely different answers, we ordered a part and wiring kit. All fitted, the mchine switches on, and does nothing. No error code. Not sure what to do. Please can you help?

Thank you gittos73.

It's as gittos says. When you open the door and look inside, at the very top of the door is a white square. This holds the metal clip. If you push the little white dot in the middle of this clamp gently, it gives way and you will see the round metal clip that goes all the way round the door rubber (gasket). Remove this and you can put your fingers round the gasket and pull it toward you.

Then take the lid off the machine and you will see a 6mm nut with a spring behind it and a wire clip similar to the front one, going round the gasket where it attaches to the drum. This has a crosspoint (phillips type) head on it and you can get a small screwdriver into it and undo it all the way. Then slide the gasket off and it will come away.

Fitting it is the reverse but it is a little bit tricky as you have to get the gasket behind the lip to make the seal. Take your time and they will both go round properly.

SOURCE: Hotpoint WMA13 door lock fault

If the door locked light is flashing , then the main board probably has a fault on it, due to a problem with the motor, or the board itself being faulty.
Recommend calling an engineer.

Hotpoint aqualtis aqgd169s no power wont turn on not even had an error code come up


If the machine is dead, I would check the cable from the main boad leading to the front display on the door. Often the cableharness breaks at the hinge. (one of cables). If that is not the case, eather the main board or display board is dead.

I have a electrolux ewx 14440w washer/dryer. its had a new door lock but the machine works sometimes and other times it double clicks and then stops........I put it on a 30 degree wash and it went through...


Hi shirleyb16 - I recommend to get a professional to diagnose the unit for repairs. From what you have described if the unit has a new door lock assembly, then you are going to either have a faulty timer or control board.

I have hotpoint wma62 and door lock light flashes, machine will not start as door will not lock any clues ???


Hiya,
yes, i can help..

Firstly, lets start simple. Have you noticed the door lever/handle has got "floppy"? or loose? or easy to squeeze?
This is the most common reason, what happens is there are 2 bits of spring steel behind the handle, these either break or become weak, to test this theory, close the door, put your finger between the handle and the door and push the handle towards the glass, if this works then you need a new spring/handle.
Please let me know,
Please rate my help.

Regards
Sussex engineer.

Aqualtis AQGD 169 S F12 problem Please help :-(


ok, I have just had the 'blocked pump message and after much playing around I have solved it.

Pull the machine out and take the drain out and place in a bucket. Then tilt the machine on its side about 30 to 45 degrees so you can get a hand underneath. At the front there is a black rubber pipe-squeeze this a few times and then run the machine on a pump cycle. Put water in machine (i used a bucket) and repeat. You should get the foul smelling gunk out of the pump. I did this about 4 times and finally the water comes out clean and you should be ok.

Regards and good luck,

Matt

WMA46 stopped woking power off mid cycle


hi there the problem you have sounds like the motor has shorted out causing the pcb to blow, sadly this is a costly repair and is usualy not worth repairing as you will need a new motor and pcb

No power to washing machine but fuse is ok...


could be 2 things 1)try closing the door and banging the machine on the front next to where your door catch goes into the washer if it starts could have a lose wire or be faulty 2)if no1 doesnt work than it will be your mains filter which if blown power doesnt get to your machine if the machine is brand new and has manufacturers warranty then these are covered through the warranty and any tampering will void your warranty though should be covered for no less than a year
