The Hotpoint manual provides guidance and a diagram for removing the detergent dispenser tray, which says to lift up and pull forward.. I've not seen one of this type before, instead of the usual tray that pulls forward, it has a swinging grey front door opening to 90degrees revealing the white plastic soap and conditioner tray. As the external parts are all grey, it is easy to see which bit of the white innards should be lifted and pulled forward as instructed, but no amount of tugging and wiggling has got it to move. Am I missing something here? I can't see any obvious clip or spring device. Anyone know how to get this tray out?
I have Hotpoint WDL540 G (UK) C washer/drier which is very ill. The only functions it will perform is to pump out, operate the door lock, and the filling solenoid. When filling, it does this in a sequence of short bursts, then nothing. I have done resistance checks on the motor, heater, and sensors, and all seem OK. I have tried running with pressure sensor pipe disconnected (it is not blocked), and with the sensor connector removed. In desperation, I have replaced the main control module, but without success. There are no fault indications on the lights on the front panel. I am an experienced electronics engineer, so I should have sorted this by now, but am at a loss to know what to do next. Could it be the front panel unit is the problem?
