My Hotpoint Aqaurius WD62 door is shuting but the door lock light wont come on!
When i close the door to the machine the door lock light flickers but wont stay on, which in turn the machine wont start its cycle as it thinks the door isn't locked. Do i need a new door or a new switch?

MOST WASHING MACHINES HAVE A SWITCH ON THE DOOR , WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED THE SWITCH ACTIVATES OR TURNS ON THE WASHER. THIS IS A SAFETY TYPE SWITCH TO PREVENT IT FROM RUNNING WITH THE DOOR OPEN. CHECK THIS SWITCH TO SEE IF IT IS LOSE OR NEEDS ADJUSTING. IF THIS DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEM, THERE THEN MAY BE A SENSOR OR OTHER SWITCH THAT NEEDS REPLACING. THIS WILL REQUIRE AN APPLIANCE REPAIR MAN TO REPLACE THE SWITCH OR SENSOR. - - SORRY
It is probably a faulty door lock, a common problem.
Remove front of door seal by releasing the wire clamp, and unscrew door lock, it has 3 wires going to it, to prove it is the door lock, short out the 2 wires marked C and L ,it should now work, if it does not , then the fault is elsewhere,, but I feel confident this is the problem.
Please rate my solution.
hi you need to take off the clip thats around the seal ..pull seal away....the switch is held in with two scews ************** TURN APPLIANCE OFF AT WALL PULL PLUG OUT ************** undo scews take interlock out and replace.hope this helps.01179512835
try fuse on plug this may be gone, also the door interlock switch, try a light bang with fist near door catch see if this will do it, what i do suspect is the door inerlock is faulty, this is a safety device which locks the door when machine is in washig/spinning mode it aso stops machine working when you open the door, this is also a safety device, good luck al. xxxx
