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)

take the lid off and open the door
isolate the mains supply and water supply
remove the two screws that secure the interlock
this is what the doors catch sits in
reach down and tilt slide it out
remove the plug
plug in the new one
screw back in the two screws hand tight avoid stripping the plastic
and return the lid in position
now reconnect the water and mains and test
the door closes and the machine should now work aok
did one the other day
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.

First switch off electrics , Remove door interlock , leave wires on .remove soap dispenser,remove front panel with controls 3 screws top of machine 3 screws bottom remove front casing you can now see door boot. remove sring note how boot came off refit is oposit to this noting top / bottom of seal ..Hope this some help-
interlock is device which prevents door opening when machine is operating. why do you want to change it? to access interlock. remove door gasket from cabinet in area of door handle and interlock is held by 2 screws from outside
Remove the front control panel where the controls are...
undue the three screws by the soap draw to do this.. Behind this panel is a pcb board,,,, detach the board from the plastic panel and check that it is not blown... check by the biggest wiring plug.... it might be blown.....
if not let me know and i will try my best to resolve...
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.
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
