    Hi, The door handle/spring is well tensioned. The machine now does the wash and goes to the 'ff' position on the dial but does not allow the door to be open afterwards. You know normally he hear the door interlock at the start and finish this dont seem to be happening - would you agree its the pcb as cannot see any relays/coils anywhere which control the interlock?? thanks

Sometimes a weak or broken spring in the door handle can be the cause of the problem, but you would have to take the door apart to check this.
If you have already fitted a new door lock, then chances are it is the control board, but I would check the door handle first.

    Make sure there is no water left in washer, as this can sometimes prevent door from opening, if you are satisfied that everything else is o/k, then I would suspect faulty pcb.

    Good luck.

Drum bearing very noisy on my hotpoint wma44 wshing machine

Sounds like the seals have gone as did the ones on mine. It need a complete new spider frame and bearing set as the front bearing had collapsed and groved the bearing spindle. Open the door and try lifting the drum to see if there is any up/down movement.

My washing machine really smells, what can i do

IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.
