If the door is closed and the limit switch is contacting to the program controller to start then the program controller by default must initiate the inlet valve to open and allow the water to flow into the washer. So check voltage at the inlet valve if voltage is present without the valve functioning the valve is faulty. Also unless water flows and the water level is detected only then the program will initiate the motor.

Hi, I have a Hotpoint wm53w first edition 1200 and the door light does not come on when the door is shut. When I switch it on and set a programme, the amchine sometimes does not start, the door light


Generally the problem lies with a faulty door interlock switch rather than a programmer fault. These are can be purchased easily but don't be fooled into buying cheap alternatives, and if you are a competant diy person no problem to fit.

Door lock light will not come on even though door locked and hence no programmes will start hotpoint wf250


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-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!

Hotpoint Aquarius


I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!
