Hi - i have traced the fault to there being two of the three wires becoming detached from the door lock. The central black wire is still attached, but I have to fit the Red+ green wire and the Brown + green wires to the lock marked 'C' and 'L'

Re: rewiring Creda W120vw door
THEY ARE BOTH LIVE WIRES THE RED/GREEN ONE GOES NEAREST TO THE DOOR SEAL, AND AS I SAID THEY ARE BOTH LIVE SO PUTTING EITHER WAY WOULD NOT CAUSE A PROBLEM APART FROM ONE WAY THE MACHINE WOULD NOT WORK. I ASSUME THE BLACK WIRE IS ON THE MIDDLE CONNECTION, THIS IS NEUTRAL

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
From what you descibe it COULD be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Plz rate my solution.
the 3 things i would consider would be the interlock,on/off switch or timer, Just because the door clicks it does'nt mean the interlock is'nt faulty there is no test you can do to prove it apart from trying a new one. also the on/off switch can melt remove facia to gain access to the switch it will help if you also loosen the timer, which will also allow you to see if the timer has shorted where the black connector block on the top of the unit goes if there is a track blown you will need to change interlock aswell. GOOD LUCK
Yes on these three wires you will see if you look carefully that they have written on them neutral ,, one ,,, two,,
these wires connect to the buttons on the front panel,, So if you find the one that says neutral on it... that one connects to the switch on the left hand side of the switch,, its the side that has a connection to the other switch by a small metal strip usually (but some times a wire connection is used ) the other wires connect to the other side of the switches number one connecte to the top switch and number 2connects to the buttom switch i hope this helps....
Potential reasons for it:
- Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced.
- Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door.
- Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit.
- Door Lock/Switch unit Failure
First disconnect the machine power cable from the wall socket. You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit.
