My zanussi Aquacycle 1100 wont start. A clicking noise starts after I try and start a wash. I heard it could be a door interlock that requires replacing. Is this easy to replace?

Door interlock is easy to replace.
undo the plastic clamp that holds door gasket to cabinet. peel back in area of door lock. door lock is held by 2 screws on outside. undo these ans lock comes off. there may also be a small diameter hose as well to door lock which take off as well.
reassembly is just the reverse

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.

Fjs1225w machine wont start

If its not the door interlock then the only other possible thing is the control module has failed ....

it does happen on zanussi machine.. is it making a cliicking noise the door interlock.... when you press start .... like click click....

if so then most likely its the control board inside the machine
