Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Locked door Hello, The hotpoint Aquarious washing machine wasn't working as it was saying that the door wasn't locked. Consequently I placed something inside the switch to press the sensor permanently down to ensure it appeared to be locked. It then worked fine and washed great but the door will not open. How do I get in and if/when i do, I'll be back to square one again. Thanks Paul

Re: locked door

Probably the latch is wedged with the item you jammed in it..
While trying to pull the door open you might try using the palm of the other hand to hit the area next to the latch. When and if you get back in and hopefully without breaking something, take the switch out and bend the metal lever on it so it sets higher and thus allowing the door to make better/earlier contact. It might be possible to get at the latch from underneath if you lay the unit on its back????Not sure, but worth a try. Let me know if you need more help.

No power to hotpoint aquarious 1000 after changing door hinge


First check the wall outlet has the correct voltage supply, if it is having the proper voltage.
It sounds like when you changed the door hinge on the door lock system is getting failed, and it damages the timer. Since the timer is damaged there is no power available to the washer.

Other possibilities are the failure is either the control board, power cord or a loose or bad connection between the power cord and the control board.

However, you need technician's help to diagnosis the problem related to controlling board.

Hope this helps.

Door will not open


Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.

Thank you !!
