Question about Hotpoint WMA40 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Power cut other day in middle of wash cycle. Machine did not restart after power restored. Door light flashing. Switched off at mains and then on again after turning dial to off. Still flashing. Was able to open door as cycle I think was at rinse stage so not much water in drum. Emptied clothes out. Thought that door switch had burned out so got a replacement from internet store. Replaced switch today. Still no joy. Tried to put programe dial back to orginal setting as per troubleshooting bit of manual. Tried also to set dial to ! to reset - still no joy. Door catch does engage firmly and hold closed. Wonder now if power outtage has damaged main board. Any suggestions..... Is there a combination of button presses I can use to reset if the porcessor is "confused"?

Hi,
Power interruptions are never good. Door lock light flashing is not normal either, check to see if door is shut properly, another problem could be a track blown on control module, you would need to remove front console to check this.
Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


Hi


The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer.
Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Door light flashes 4 times and can hear 4 clunks?


First measure the door lock, make sure it's fine, then ensure that there's current flowing towards the door lock. if it'll trip all the electricity out you'll need to ru very close inspection or to replace the main circuitboard

Close inner door


That is a problem with the door latch.

To start move the cycler to the end to ternminate the cycle, and turn off the appliance.
Then unplug power cable, or trip circuit breaker, cutting power for five minutes.

If when you restart the machine you still get close inner door message, then that means that the door latch must be replaced.
