Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

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?

Man thanks

    Thanks for getting back so quick!



    We can see the light flicker on when we slam it hard but it wont stay on. Also if i close the door and bag the side of the door, the light flickers as well.



    Kind Regards

Sounds like a bad connection some where, maybe the switch, but probably a bad or loose connection, maybe a ground. check junctions, & connections

You may need a switch but not a door see if you can adjust the door and try shutting it hard as front loaders close snug because of the rubber boot check your power too

    check the connections then replace the switch make sure the part on the door isnt broken

    id check the outlet for proper voltage first and do a voltage drop test that is plug a volt meter in the same out let where the washer is take a reading then turn the washer on and see if the voltage drops 12 volts or more its a power problem

I have just bought a hotpoint aqaurius washing machine model no. WMF740. THe power to it is o.k. but when I press the power button the machine does not light up. Can you help


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

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryer does not start indicater light doesnot light up. have checked line fuse and socket thanks


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.

Door Locked. Cannot open. Washine inside.


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Hotpoint WD62


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
