Indesit IWE 91481 Door Issue F06

Hi, I would much appreciate any help with the following.

The Door on my Indesit is permanently locked with the door lock symbol on the control panel illuminated. I can open it with the green plastic door lock over ride strip ( by pulling it downwards ).

The fault code F06 is appearing on the control panel with all the lights flashing. The other symptom is when you first turn the power on there is a 1 second long " fast rattle " sound - like the door solenoid is opening and shutting rapidly.

I bought a new door catch and installed it but the symptoms remain the same ( the old one didn't smell burnt out either ).

Any ideas what to try next ?

Thanks in advance.

 

Mike

Hello Mike. When you say you replaced the door catch I presume you do mean the door catch and not the door lock? If your washing machine thinks the door is closed and latched when it isn't then something may be wrong with the door lock itself. And if it isn't the door lock then it may be a problem with the PCB that communicates with the door lock.
