Rewiring Creda W120vw door

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'

Which wire goes on which part of the switch?

Kia rio2001 have changed lock mechanism on the boot door but still locks but not unlock key turns ok?ay

do you mean not unlock with the central locking ? the control lock is the drivers door lock , this sends the lock/unlock signal to the other locks so i'd check that this is working ok , otherwise it would be a wiring fault,loose connection etc so have to trace wiring from boot lock and see if any loose , corroded wires etc

Creda excel W120VW the door lock light keeps flashing and cycle stops. If I hold the start button for a few seconds it starts again but then stops after about 2 mins.

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!

Washer won't start, makes a clicking noise and than a code comes upF DL


Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” or f dl means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Machine light turns on, cycle light blinks, door is closed but the door lock light doesn't come on and washer won't start. Code shows f dl?

The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.

Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.

Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.

After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.

The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.

Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.

To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.

Put the eased part of the door gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

Problem with Central door lock on peugot 106

there is a switch attached to the back of the door lock that opens all doors, it may have fallen off or become damaged, or the mechanical connection to the lock may have snapped.

if the door itself does not even open with the key on its own, the lock mechanism has become detached from the locking rods inside the door, you would need to take off the door panel and look / feel inside near the lock, there is a thin rod connected to the actual locking part and the part the key is inserted into, as well as the internal lever to open or lock the car, it may have popped off. The key-lock itself is usually held on by a thin flat round circlip-washer affair, this may have slipped out too and the key-lock is not connected any more.
