This usually indicates that the sensor which determines that the door is shut properly could be faulty.

My WMA33 does this occasionally. I manually push the door in and up slightly with my knee - and then start the wash cycle. This seems to work every time.

Failing that you will need to replace the door sensor. A call to hotpoint may help.

My machine has got a couple of inches of water in it, no cycle or spin will start as the door lock light is continually flashing please help


Normally a flashing door light indicates the door is not closed. Possibly the contacts are faulty and latch needs to be replaced. You could do a bypass on the latch to check but i suggest you get a technician to check for you.(not good if you accidently bridge the live to neutral.If same thing continues, there is possibly a motion detector on the motor which indicated with light flashing you can open the door. Check the connections on the motor. Otherwise board is faulty.

Door is likely open. Open and close it and see if it gives a clicking sound to indicate it is closed.

Door lock light flashing when machine running


The flashing nlight usually indicates the door is not closed properly.
This can be caused by a weak or broken spring in the door handle.
If this is o/k, then it could be the door lock, or a fault on the control module.
Check all connectioins to the door lock and the module.

Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open


Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

Fdl code message


>"dL" indicates Door Lock Failure: dL flashes if the following conditions occur:
Door lid is not closed completely due to interference.
Wash media buildup is preventing the lock bolt from extending.
Machine/motor control detects open door lid switch when attempting to lock.
Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lock is in a locked state.
Check for lock interference with lid or lock bezel

IF you machine is a wma39 not a wmm39a then what has happed is that you control board is blown basically.
TO check this remove the soap draw and you will c three screws remove them... TO make removing the panel easier i would suggest removing the top as well as the front panel is wedged into it.. Then unclip the board from the panel and you will c where the big wiring plug is attached that the tracks on the board are blown.. There is no point replacing the board untill you can work out what has caused it to blow because it will blow again.. Its usually the motor or the doorlock which blows the board.. Trust me i been dealing with this type of machine for years...
