Hotpoint Wdd960 Door Interlock


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hello guys

Just returned from holidays and the washing machine does not work. Can select programme and hear water going in, but it does not spin.

I suspect it's the door interlock as when i pull the manual door release, I get a quarter turn before the solenoid kicks in and either pauses of displays "door open".


I have removed and inspected the door interlock, cannot find anything obviously wrong.

FOR INFO - A month or so ago I could not open the door twice so had to use manual release. Also the machine paused at rinse showing 1 min left.

Any help/guidance would be appreciated.

The door interlock's job is to pass power to the washing machine when the door is properly closed. Therefore in theory, if the interlock is faulty the washer should not operate at all. If fiddling with it seems to get the motor moving for a second maybe it's not passing enough power through to run the motor though in my experience door interlocks either pass full power or none at all. I can't say for certain it will fix the fault but if you want to try replacing the interlock the part can be bought on 4washerhelp for the same price - Hotpoint door interlock (assuming you've correctly identified the part).
