Question about Hotpoint WMA58 Front Load Washer
Hi, The mc is filled and ready, pressed button to start the cycle, the mc displays remaining time then the door lock led flashes and nothing else happens. Cancelling the wash job releases the door [after 2 mins] and back to normal. Due to the door lock led flashing the washing mc will not start the cycle...
The solution from testy helped me but I decided to change it.
I cut the plastic latch away from the end of the interlock,just the little bar that holds the door closed.This means that the lock position doesn't affect the door.
I then used the little piece of plastic to act as 2 packing pieces to hold the lock half closed. This works fine.
Don't push the lock fully closed or it doesn't work

Hello, This depends on how old your machine is mine is now 7 years old so I do not want to invest in long term soltions. So I repaired my own, I bought a new interlock and replaced the old one that did not work. So I shorted out the three links that go to the interlock, the machine now shows the lock is always on and you can open the door during the wash cycle so BEWARE. Also if you have never wired a plug or fixed basic electrics DO NOT DO THIS. 1. Turn off power and unplug. (Very Important) 2. Remove lid you will need torx drivers. 3. Unscrew door interlock from the front of the machine. 4. Lift out interlock. Try replacing the interlock with spare first (about £15). 5. If new interlock does not work do the following. 6. Put Interlock back on without wires attched to it. 7. From car spares shop buy spade conectors and create a three way shorting link (insulate well). 8. Put shorting link into each of the wires that go to interlock. Safely tie up wire to a loom (do not let dangle) 9. Shut the door remove hands and try starting the machine. 10. If that works put the machine back together. And warn people that the DOOR CAN BE OPENED DURING WASH CYCLE and STARTED WITH DOOR OPEN. So check when the machine has stopped properly.

To begin the test program, press both the SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO wash program buttons at the same time
as you turn the unit on by pressing the ON/OFF button. Initially, the control unit version number will appear in the display
(e.g./ 20 = version 20, 21 = version 21, etc.).
When the wash program buttons are released, the LED's above them will begin flashing. To end the test program or test cycle, press the ON/OFF button.
To check the wash program LED, press its corresponding button.
To check the Cycle Countdown display, Refill Rinse Agent LED and REGULAR WASH button LED, press the REGULAR WASH button (press the DELAY START button to test the
Cycle Countdown display alone).
The Cycle Countdown display should show "88" when the DELAY START button is pressed and "8h" when the REGULAR WASH button is pressed.
To start the test cycle, press both the SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO buttons a second time.
When the test cycle has completed, the Cycle Countdown display will indicate a fault using the codes below. If a combination of faults exists, the code numbers will be added together, (e.g./ 6 = faults 2 + 4).
0 = No faults
1 = Aqua Sensor ("Sensotronic") fault
2 = Heating fault
4 = Filling fault
8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault
email me at [email protected] and I can send you via a "pdf" of the diagnostic/repair manual for your specific Bosch...provided it is indeed a SHU5316 unit.
I`ll watch for your reply. Good luck.
