Siemens Front Load Washing Machine Ot Starting

Recommended Posts

My Siemens washing which I had bought less than a year before is giving starting trouble. no error is displayed on the LEd display. After laoding the laundry and detergent etc. I close the door as usual and press start button. Nothing happens except a beep sound is produced and the start button continues blinking. No error is shown either. The engineer is telling it can be a problem with the door lock but I am not convinced with this reason. Though the machine is in warranty and the lock, if damaged, will be replaced free of cost, but I am uncomfortable in doing so. has anyone ever experienced such problem? Similar problem had occured in the past and then machine had started automatically next day. but this time it wont even after 2/3 days.

Try leaving the door open and starting a wash. Does it do the exact same thing? If so it would strongly imply that this is what the machine does if yu try to start a wash cycle with the door open. If the door interlock is faulty, or the door doesn't always activate it properly then the machine thinks the door is still open even if it isn't.
