Hotpoint WM83 control module plug connections

I just replaced the door interlock on my WM83, and when I removed the control module for access, I forgot to note the position of two of the wiring plugs (although I correctly noted all of the others....): The ones that i didnt note are:

1. The purple connector (2 black wires), and
2. The white connector (4 black wires going to the triple switch bank)


Advice would be very gratefully received.

Fixed it - by a process of elimination and logic :) What was worrying me initially was the fact that it is possible to fit the connectors in either position (Hotpoint!).

No electric power to left door Fuse and relay are good


Check the wire lume that runs from the body to the door inside a rubber bellow. the wires can break from constant moving and I'm not sure what vehicle you have, but this is a defect for a few vehicles out there the wire can be to short in some cases from cost saving manufacturing. It may be necessary to remove the door panel and remove the harness through the wire opening to be able to move the boot far enough to access the broken wire or even just to check it in some cases.
How I like to repair it, is to put a new wire through the entire pivot point and join it inside the door and body where the wire does not move constantly.

Hope this helps

We have a Lexmark printer C534dn and it keeps displaying 113.01 Service Printhead error. We have tried turning it off and sitting then turning it back on with no success. Of note the printer is plugged...


Try this:

  1. Is the front access door completely closed? Not?
  2. Turn the printer off, and remove the rear cover.
    Check the connector JINT1 (5 V interlock
    switch cable) for proper connection to the
    system card, the cable for pinch points, and the
    cable or connector for any other damage.
    Is the cable damaged? Yes? Replace the front access
    door 5 V interlock switch.
    Not?
  3. Turn the printer power on, and check for 5 V dc
    between JINT1 pin (red wire) and ground.
    Is voltage present? Yes? Replace the front access
    door 5 V interlock switch.Not?
  4. Replace the printhead. Doesn't the error clear?
  5. Replace the system card.

The power is going to my WD62 but when I select a program and press the on button nothing happens, the light doesn't illuminate and the door won't lock.


I solved the problem myself after gleaning information off the web, it was a faulty door interlock and I paid £5 for a second hand one from my friendly local washing machine repair shop. The interlock is normally £15 from retail spares shops but you can get them online for between £6 and £8.

This is how I did the job.

1. I unplugged the machine from the wall socket (This is important electric shocks can kill)
2. Undo the three screws holding the washing machine top on and slide the top off towards the rear of the machine.
3. Remove the 4 screws that are revealed when you remove the soap tray.
4. remove the control knobs they pull off, make sure you note where the program knob is pointing then you can put it back in the correct position.
5. Pull off the panel from the left side and ease it to the right to clear the lugs that hold it on the right hand side then carefully let the panel hang by the 4 wires connected to it.
6. At the top of the door panel there are 3 screws remove them and the panel should tilt forward enough to reach in and get hold of the door interlock.
7. Remove the 2 screws securing the door latch plate and remove the interlock, but before pulling off the 3 wires on the interlock make a note or take a picture with a camera phone then you know which wire goes where.

Finally everything goes back together in reverse of removal, thanks for reading and I hope this helps someone fix their machine.

Hotpoint Washing Machine Door Interlock (how to wire up)? I have removed the old door interlock and forgot to make a note of where the wires go, (wont make that mistake again) I have 3 wires White Brown...


The three wires you should have are
1-Brown-goes to L
2 Thin black to N
3 White to C..
Hotpoint never have incorporated a wiring diagram on any of their british made appliances, so previous comments made do not apply in this case.
Hope this helps.

Machine won't turn on


Display error E40 is normally associated with interlock problems and this covered in your manual.
The interlock light should be on when the power switch is pressed and stay on till end of program?
----------------------------
It is not difficult to replace the door interlock.Remove machine top cover.Look inside and locate the door interlock and wiring. Remove as many plastic ties as necessary from the wiring to assist removal, also trace and make note of plugs you will need to pull of. Once you have unplugged the wiring harness open the door and remove two screws and bracket that secures the door interlock. Now carefully reach down and remove door interlock taking care not to pull other wiring in the process.

Door indicator prevents microwave from starting


This is usually an indication of a bad door interlock. Take resistance readings with the power turned off on the primary and secondary interlocks. You will need to remove the control panel to access them. There should be a wiring diagram somewhere inside the control panel to assist you in determining if the interlock is normally OPEN, or normally CLOSED. As you open and close the door the interlock should change states. Additionally, double all your connectors to make sure they are plugged in correctly. I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be a loose connection on one of the interlocks. I hope this helps you.
