POSSIBLE COMMUNICATION PROBLEM BETWEEN MAIN AND MOTOR CONTROLLER

SOURCE: Hotpoint ultima wt741 F11 fault code

HI

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 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.
Thank you

Flashes error code F06


Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its a faulty CCU that needs to be replaced. Here is the part.

My Hotpoint WMF540 (Aquarius) keeps displaying DOOR error message


I know this is an old question but for the benefit of anyone else having the problem, here's how I fixed it on our machine ( a WMF540 P (UK) R ).
Our clicked about 6 times then displayed the "door" error. The clicking noise is the solenoid inside the door interlock. The fact that it was clicking showed that it was functioning. Just as a precaution I removed and disassembled the interlock to check it and everything inside was fine.
Next, I removed the rear panel of the machine, took off the drive belt, disconnected the white plug and earth lead from the motor. Undid the two bolts holding the motor and dropped the motor out of the bottom of the machine.
The commutator was completely black. I removed the carbon brush holders and gave everything a blast of compressed air to get rid of the carbon dust. I then used a piece of very fine wet and dry abrasive paper and cleaned the commutator so that it was nice and shiny again. The brushes looked like they were on their last legs but as I didn't have any others available I just put them back.
After replacing the motor and the belt I tested the machine and it worked fine. Now I'll buy some spare brushes and replace them at some conveniente time in the future.

F06 error code


Hi Bunny:
F06 code will indicate a drive motor tachometer error; means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down.

If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. Potential Causes:
* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

My keypad won't light up when door is locked whe you push lock won't light up green


To make the keys light up when you want to enter your code, you have to push the lock button on the keypad first. If the keypad light never comes on, open the door and manually lock the interior lock, then press the keypad lock button. The above instructions should then work.

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!
