I'm Sorry to post a complete "Gerry Rig" solution to the problem: I inserted a plastic clip in the door lock to fool the machine that the door was locked; removed the clip then secured the door with a tension rod. It ran its full cycle without a leak. I think the plastic door mechanics was inadequately engineered. Our Machine is less than 6 months old?- Im on the road & have to make things work on the fly. Warning my next fix might include Duct Tape Good Luck Everyone Kevin_ByDesign

Lights come on to operate except door light,the door is locked but no a action on hotpoint wf430

Worn motor brushes can cause this. The door lock is on the same circuit as the motor so if brushes are worn it doesnt know door is locked and therefore wont start. likely just needs new brushes.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Your symptom suggests there is a problem either with the door lock or the door locked sensor requiring a service call, 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!

Will not spin

You have 1 of 2 problems, the 1st being the door lock mechanism is not engaging, therefore as a safety feature it will not spin. The 2nd is that the drain pump is clogged or broken. Very easy to unclog, a little pricey to replace.

Washer will not completely spin dry . clothes left lying in water. We have checked the water supply hose screen and it is not plugged.

Your door lock switch (not the one that turns your "door locked" light on) which allows your spin cycle to engage is probably not engaging properly. This is usually caused by the failure of the motor which locks the front washer door, and not this switch. As you know, that door is difficult to open even when it is unlocked so there is really no need for it to be locked.
Therefore, instead of spending a pile of money tryng to resolve this problem, make sure it does not happen again by tricking the machine into thinking the door is locked.
To do this first remove the front washer panel. Then remove the front screws which lock down the top cover. This gives you access to this switch. Fold up a piece of stiff paper and jam it in next to this switch so that it alwatys gives a "door is locked" signal to the machine control board.
Your machine should now operate and spin properly.
Of course the washer door will always be unlocked while the washer is operating but my door has never flopped open after making this repair. It certainly beats paying $200 for a replacement control board, and even more if something is also wrong with the locking motor. Remember that any replacement board will be just as junky and defective as the original board was.
Always remember, when you get ready to buy a new washer, not to buy any front loaders, because they are all poorly designed and therefore, because of the cheap materials used overseas in making them, they all rapidly become mechanically defective.
Good luck.
