Wmh1162xvs-2 trips breaker on operating door


Most likely bad interlock switch(es). These switches operate as the door opens & closes. One or more need to be replaced - OR - the switches are OK & the door latch isn't causing them to be activated.

Dishwasher Problems


Check where the pig tail (electrical cord from the outlet) connects to the dishwasher. Remove the bottom panel and you will see the electrical wire from the wall outlet lead into a metal box. With the unit unplugged remove the facing of this metal box and check all of the wire connections. If the wiring is connected properly then the only other thing I can suggest to see if the dishwasher hasn't given up the ghost, is go to the door and open it. At the top of the door itself there is aa small slot that a metal bar on the dishwasher goes into to latch your door. With the door open take a slooed screwdriver and push it into the slot and trip the door lever over as if locking the door to start the cycle. Basically what you are doing is activating the dishwasher with the door open. Once the door latch is in place turn on the timer (keep the door as closed as possible to stop from water spraying out should the unit activate) If nothing happens then with the electrical connections at the base checked, then there is an issue with the electronics in the dishwasher and you may need to contact a service tech to trace the problem down.

Good luck hope this helped

Indesit WIA 121 not working - door latch not shutting


At first thought it was door lock mechanism was at fault but proved it to be ok - removed rubber 'boot' which on this model was on two stretchable spring retainers and checked operation of door lock.
Thought door hinges may have been bent so dismantled door, finding the problem to be the pin that the door latch pivots on had come out on one side so not lining up properly. This was easily pushed back into position.

Indesit washer wont run


the door lock light flashing indicates that the door has not locked or not shut correctly,is the appliance is under 5 yrs old open the door and check the door catch,there are two gaps either side of the catch,if you look into the gaps you should see a metal pin,if the one at the bottom is not there then thats why the door wont catch,there are some screws around the door frame if you take them out and just pry apart the door frame by the catch you will see the pin at the top,push it down till you see it at the bottom gap,refit and test.

Panasonic microwave, when unit is plugged in, unit is ok, when opening the door the RCD in the consumer box trips, close the door and reset the RCD power stays on try to run the microwave, and the RCD...


If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing Machine


no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam
