Leaking from door


Hi Bungle
Door leaks usually mean that there is a tear in the door seal which is allowing water through. OR it could mean that you keep the door closed between washes which doesn't allow the flexible seal to relax.
If it's the latter situation, leaving the door ajar between washes MAY help.
If it's ripped/damaged you'll have to have it replaced. Not a job for the handyman as sometimes 'special tools' are needed.
Usually the front panel has to be removed to access the rear clamp and the counterweights removed..
Good luck

Model GDM-69


A GDM 69 three doors. Each door closes using a string attached to a weight, which runs through pulleys or copper tubing, and is held to the top of door. The pulleys or copper tubing can be accessed by removing the aluminum siding located inside cabinet on either side. The left side contains the pulley and weightfs or left and center door, the right for right door (each held on by 4 1/4 screws) . To make the door close, simply make sure string is attached to weight, running though pulley, and attached to top of door.

The door on my Hotpoint Washing Machine WT741 won't open even though the programme has ended. We've tried running the programme again and pumping out but still the door won't open.


The door latch may have broken. You can sometimes open the door from the inside. You will know the door latch is broken if the door handle is floppy. If the door handle is not floppy - then the issue is probably with the door interlock. This is the electronic part that prevents the door from being opened during and after the wash has finished.
Either way - you'll need to get the door open.
To do this, unplug the washing machine from the mains and then move it out from where it is. Tip the washing machine to a 45 degree angle. Don't tip it over 45 degrees as you may break internal parts.
You need two people to do this - one person hold the machine at 45 degrees angle, whilst the other person puts their hand up into the machine - you should be able to feel the door catch mechanism and depending on the model, open the door that way. Sometimes the manufacturer has helpfully put a manual release inside - and sometimes they don't.
If you aren't able to open the door using that method. Get a length of strong string and poke the middle section of the string into the gap between the washer door and the machine body - to the right of the door handle. Use a flat headed screw drive to push the string into the gap, all the way around the door, so that you end up with the two ends of the string on the left hand side of the door. Now have someone put the ends of the string whilst the other person pulls the door handle. If the string is pushed in far enough it will release the door latch and the door will open. It takes a bit of persistence to get it right.
Once you have the door opened you can usually replace either the interlock mechanism or the door latch itself. Parts are easily available online from sites like espares and yourspares.

Door will not open on hotpoint bwd 129 catch may be broken


Your door lock assembly needs to be replaced to open the door try the following procedure.

To open the door, get a piece of string and feed it into the door recess, work it around until both ends come out opposite the door handle.
Pull the string to the side and with your other hand pull the door open.
You will need to get a replacement lock assembly for the machine which isn't too hard to fit if you are a bit handy with tools.

My whirlpool duet sport washer is leaking in the front underneath, not from the door. Does not do it when it drains. What do I do?


Hello Casey,
Its possible that the washer could be leaking from the door seal yet ya don't see it coming from the door. The way to check if its the door seal remove the lower panel and see if the concrete counterweight that's on the front of the drum...if ya see water dripping from that counterweight,its from the door seal.
If the door seal is not leaking ya would need to look at the pump and hoses on the tub while it was in wash mode to see whats leaking.

I just set up my audio technica AT-PL120 for the first time, and I can't stop the tonearm from drifting back to the rest. I can't get the stylus to stay straight unless I add more on to the counterweight,...


KEEP THE ANTI SKATE AT 0 FOR NOW,then you need 2 balance the tonearm with the rear counterweight so it just hovers at around the height of the platter.now you need to zero the gauge on the rear counterweight being carefull not to turn the counterweight,then check again that the tonearm still hovers.then screw counterweight inwards untill the dial on counterweight reads between 1.5- 2 grams dependin on tracking weight of cartridge.then adjust antiskate 2 whatever u set the tracking weight to.i would also double check with a spirit level ur level surface
