Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW10P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

DOOR LOCK LIGHT IS FLASHING

We have an intermittent problem with the door locked light. At certain points in the cycle the light flashes and the cycle stops. If we push the panel around the light or the door it will eventually stop flashing and the cycle will continue. It's now happening more often.

I'd just like to know if this is a common problem and if so is there an easy fix? I'm thinking that it is either the door lock or the printed circuit board.

Does any one know where I can get hold of a wiring diagram for a FEW10P?

Any suggestions would be gratefully received

I have a ge profile oven model starts pt 916 when i broil food the "locked" light flashes, i usually keep the oven door open so i can watch the food after about 5 min the locked light goes off


The only thing spring to mind Mary is that you somehow selected a cleaning cycle which superheats the oven and turns burnt on fat and grease to charcoal. The cleaning cycle never finished and the stove remembers it. The light is flashing to remind you. When the cleaning cycle is in progress, the door locks until it is finished.

Either remove the wall power plug or flip the breaker and leave it overnight. It _should_ erase it from the memory. Or you have to compete the cleaning cycle as per the instruction book.

Oven door will not close because the door lock is on and flashing, also the oven light won't go off. how do I fix the door lock flashing so I can close the oven door completly?


is not actuallly physically closing??? perhaps the lock/ latch has partially engaged prevetning door from closing, and with the door oopen it cannot do anything for safety reasons. can you see a door /light switch thtyou can depress by hand??? if so push and hold it in the light should go out, and at this point continue to hold in switch and try starting a self clean cycle ( dont worry it wont actually start cleaning right away)it then should activet the latch assy to fully engage and suppoedly lock door, still depressing the button then press thecancel button and the latch should return to the normal resting position and you can close the door
