Hello everyone, New to the forum so if this is the wrong place please excuse me. So I received this Hotpoint hv7l130g after my old Indesit died as my dad had it spare. The machine ran though two usual washes successfully but after we switched to to "baby" mode for kids clothes it died on me. Symptoms: Door was locked and had to be forced open. Any program chosen to be run tries to start, I get a lot of clicks from the interlock and then the door lock light flashes. I assumed that the interlock had failed so I replaced it today with a new one but the problem persists. So I have had the machine in pieces, I have checked the following with the multimeter: Motor (All seemed well, brushed in good condition and the commutator was clean), Water heating element (got a 50ish ohm reading from it). In addition I also checked the drainage pump and sump hose for debris but they were clear. I have examined the control board and all the capacitors seem to be okay, no bulging and pass a beep test with the multimeter. I am at a complete loss as to whats wrong with this machine. Does anyone have any suggestions before I sink even more money into a new control board? This freebie is becoming a money pit!! Cheers in Advance, Badger.
