Flashes Up "close Door" Even Though The Door Is Closed

Recommended Posts

hi, I've got a hotpoint ultima 1400,when you close the door it says select program,which is normal,so you select program, press start and after a while it flashes up "close door" even though the door is full closed. I thought it might be the door interlock switch,so changed it but not worked,still does the same.any ideas .cheers

It isn't getting the signal that the door is closed. If it's not the door interlock check that the interlock mechanism is actually being activated by the door catch when the door is being closed. It's always worth lubricating both with WD40, but check the door catch isn't loose or broken or has a broken spring and that the door seal isn't peeling away from the door opening rim in a small section which can prevent the door closing properly.
