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)

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.
u have to remove the front of door boot ie rubber seal from front of mechine 2 screws where the catch goes in holds the interlock 2 mechine remove wireing 3 wires or plug depends if three wires take note of wher the go replace interlock easy.
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?
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?
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
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.
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.

Remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing by rotating and tilting the blower motor as necessary.
Gently flex the recirculation-air door downward to gain access to install the blower motor into the HVAC housing.
Position the blower motor to the HVAC housing and tilt and rotate the blower motor as necessary to install it into the HVAC housing.
Align the blower motor mounting tabs to the locations noted during removal and install the three screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and seat the rubber grommet.
Position the recirculation door pivot shaft into the lower air inlet housing and install the inlet housing.
Install the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and the lower HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).

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.
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.
