Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
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.

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.

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.
