Wma44 hotpoint washer. Did a wash as normal and


Sometimes a weak or broken spring in the door handle can be the cause of the problem, but you would have to take the door apart to check this.
If you have already fitted a new door lock, then chances are it is the control board, but I would check the door handle first.

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.

I have fitted a new door lock on my hotpoint washing machine and it wont lock, and therefore wont start washing


IF YOU HAVE REPLACED THE DOOR LOCK BE SURE THAT THERE ARE NO LOOSE CONNECTIONS OR BURNED WIRES THAT GO TO THE SWITCH. IF THESE ARE OKAY YOUR COULD POSSIBLY HAVE A BROKEN DOOR STRIKE LOCATED ON THE DOOR ITSELF IF THIS IS BROKEN IT WILL NOT ACTIVATE THE SWITCH. I CAN GET THE DOOR STRIKE PART NUMBER, BUT I WOULD REQUIRE A MODEL NUMBER. THE LAST POSSIBLE SOLUTION IS THAT YOUR CONTROL BOARD IS FAULTY THEREFORE NOT ALLOWING IT TO SEND THE PROPER AMPERAGE YOU ACTIVATE THE LOCKING MECHANISM.HOPE THIS HELPS


THANKS

Hi my hotpoint washes but wont do a second spin,just had new door lock fitted


Most hotpoint machines can be a bit sensitive on the balance control. If you have a half full machine, somtimes it wount spin as high as you want. It will try some spins until it finishes without high spin.

Hotpoint WMA13 door lock fault


If the door locked light is flashing , then the main board probably has a fault on it, due to a problem with the motor, or the board itself being faulty.
Recommend calling an engineer.
