    "door closed?" alert keeps coming up, even though there is nothing blocking the door and door is shut frimly.

    When I close the washer door and change the dial to start a new cycle the door open light illuminates, eventhough the door is closed properley.



    I have also replace the door locking mechanism with a brand new replacement, but the problem persists!



    Please Help!

    I spoke with an electrician who advised the 3 things that need to be checked are as follows:

    1. Door locking mechanism

    2. Wire connecting the locking unit to computer

    3. The computer itself



    As I have already replaced the door locker with no resoloution I'm unsure it makes financial sense to buy the other parts. Does anybody else have any advice for this problem?



    Thanks Lambhuna

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

Can't get machine to start a cycle. When press the start/pause button, the door open light begins to flash. After a few seconds, it stops flashing and the start/pause button begins flashing. I have checked...


It is hard to tell if there is no model number. Normally, WP machine has error code appeared on the display. I guess your unit does not have display, so the combination flashing is a signal to tell you what wrong with the system. You can check the service manual normally taps inside the unit.

    This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
    Is the washer door firmly shut?
    The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
    Were you washing a large load?
    Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
    fl_doorseal.jpg To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

    If Pause/Cancel does not work:
    1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
    2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.

    Door not shut Check that the door is properly shut.Faulty interlock A faulty interlock might not allow the door to shut properly. Find your door interlock here and replace, or contact a qualified repairer.
    No power Check the flex, plug wiring, fuse and mains supply for faults.
    Faulty on/off switch Check the power light if fitted. Replace your on/off switch.
    Water supply disconnected or off If a washer dryer cannot load water it cannot start a wash cycle. Check water supply.

    You need to replace the door interlock. Try giving the handle a firm push and see if the machine will start.

    Does the machine drain on its own or do you drain it manually? The drain pump may be jammed or seized. Try giving the door a light bang with your hand on the handle. The door interlock could be faulty. If the machine starts up after you hit it with your hand on the door handle, the interlock is faulty. Good Luck!!
