    Disconnect machine from power for 10 minutes, this will reset eventual electronic problems.
    First try to unlock the latch, pushing , then pulling it out.

    Try also pressing "end of cycle" button, then wait for 2 minutes before opening the door, this may unlock the sensor

    If after the above it still does not open then you will need to have the door forced to open by a repairman, in this case, if you live in UK/Irl you can check the contact at the end pages of the manual here, otherwise check contact for your area on hotpoint website.

    One last thing, if you still have water filling the drum, door will not open, drain the water using the cycle before attempting the steps above.

My Hotpoint wdm73 won't drain. how do I fix it?


  1. You will need to gain access to the drain pump through the bottom of the Washing machine. Remove the Drain hoses from the pump, clear any debris, change, etc. If it is clear, or the error continues after clearing, replace the drain pump.
  2. If you replace the drain pump and it still won't drain, you will need a new Control Board.

Hotpoint WDM 73 keeps tripping ringmain when powered on


I suspect that the problem is probably being caused by a fault on the dryer element or thermostat.
Remove the top cover and disconnect the heater, and see what happens..
If it does not trip, then prob is the dryer element or stat.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...


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

Faulty on/off switch Check the power light if fitted. Replace your on/off switch.
