How to get access to door interlock mechanism?

Hi,
When I closed the door to my washer it took a few times before the door lock light would come on and the machine would start, then one day the light wouldn't come on at all. I tried to unscrew the door lock mechanism from the outside but the interlock fell inside the machine. I have managed to get the back panel and the top of the machine off but I still can't get top the interlock, can I get the front of the washer off? ps my machine is a hotpoint aquarius 1100 (WD61P)

thanks for your help.

    Same problem - had to keep slamming door to get it the lock light to come on and the programme to start, now won't come on or start at all. What do I need to replace? Or is this a plumber / electrician job? It is a Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 washer dryer, not sure how old (came with our flat when we bought it three years ago).

I get err01 which I think is related to the door interlock ,is this a matter of replacing the door interlock or something else


the code is for a door lock issue,it means the door isn't closing properly,most likely it will be the door switch,unplug the washer,remove the spring from around the outside of rubber boot,pull the boot off just on the side of the door switch enough just to change out the switch,put it back together.next time send the model number,i could have given you the part number,good luck

Door won't lock


If the interlock isn't working it may not allow the machine to start. If you can open the door when it should be locked it's probably a faulty interlock.......Nomess

Hi brennanjodi
I think your door interlock needs replacing. Turn off the power undo the front of the door gasket and that will get you to the lock mechanism. They're about £20 to replace.

Sounds like you need the electric "door interlock" replaced. It is a simple matter of seperating the front of the machine enough to unplug the interlock mechanism, remove the two screws holding the mechanism in place and remove it from the back, reverse the procedure to install the new "updated" replacement part (- Bosch #170935 btw. about $37.00 from Sears). - time: approx 1/2 hour if you aren't mechanically inclined.

WF100 door wont open


The interlock has jammed, first try gently pushing the door frame on the latch side of the door and then hit the outer door frame with your fist, not too hard but a reasonable bang this may release the door, if this works spray a lubricant into the latch hole in the panel, open and close the door a few times before reusing, if this fails then you have to force the door open, the best way is to remove the lid and manouver the door lock from the inside, either the lock or the latck will eventually break, this is unavoidable, then replace the interlock and any other broken part.

Switch the machine off at the wall and leave it off for a few minutes. The door interlock should reset. If it doesn't, then you have a faulty door interlock or by the sound of what you have described, you might even have a board problem!!
