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!).

Washing machine door wont open - hotpoint


Hi,
Never reach inside the washing machine with it connected to the mains. The door interlock is always live.
There are several reasons why a Hotpoint door could be jammed shut.
•A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoints - always breaking) you can sometimes get the door open if you push the door firmly in as you open it
•If there is water still inside the washing machine, then the door wont open either on these Hotpoint washing machines (not on some others though) If this is the case, when you try to open the door the ****** won't try to move down at all. You can open the door usually if you drain the machine. (only applicable with door interlocks that have a rubber pressure hose attached to them)
•A faulty door interlock
•The pressure chamber can be blocked on some earlier Hotpoint washing machines which gives the same effect as having water in the machine. Basically the washer "thinks" there is water in when there isn't. This would require the washing machine being stripped down to remove and clean the pressure chamber bottle. This cause is only applicable to washing machines where a small rubber hose is connected to the door interlock. This hose allows the door mechanism to be locked and unlocked by air pressure activated by water rising inside the pressure chamber bottle attached at the other end on the tub. Gunge can block the very small aperture where the pressure hose fits to the pressure chamber bottle.

Door interlock flashing


Same issue with loose solder joint on the relays inside CCU (computer control unit)
the same bad CCU is used by several manufactures.
you have to open the CCU and re-solder the the relays to the board. they have microcracks around the legs.
you will get the door lock issue randomly.
to prove the issue open the top access panel .and pull up on the center black plastic connector and the issue will go away.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WF250


it may be the interlock but is more probably the control PCB in the fascia, this is not a DIY repair as it requires programming when replaced.

Hotpoint WF860


when the machine was flashing door this was telling you that either the door was not shut properly, try it again, or the interlock switch was faulty, chances are its probably shorted out and blown the circuit board, take care and remove the board to check for signs of blowing, if no signs then i would replace the interlock and start from there, ps i am a retired engineer and have had the same machine myself
