Trick to get washing machine going, urgently

20
Posted 14th Dec 2019
We urgently need our washing machine to be working for today and tomorrow as we will be moving.

It says door is unlocked even when fully plugged in...

Hotpoint first edition...

I tried to trick it but still says door is not locked...

Guess door switch is bust.Hot wire door switch so it thinks door is always closed could fix. But don't complain if things don't work out.
Ah. I could guess which 2 to join but I don't know for sure. Try cleaning it

Seems like decision of life lol
I think it's white ones I need to combine, if someone could confirm I will move forward, thanks
Can't you just go to the launderette for now? I wouldn't entertain meddling with the mechanics personally.

Moving this close to Christmas is stressful enough without having to worry about your washing machine refusing to open and stealing your clothes

Is this because you're leaving the machine and the new owners will expect it to work?

I’m guessing that it’s because they are moving out of a rented place and want the landlord to think that the machine is working so as to get their deposit back.
Thank you to those who helped..

And

For all meriable stalkers, who have nothing positive to do in life... and talk bs all the times... And don't have brain of there own... I own this washing machine... It will go to recycling unit in a few days...

Are you stupid or what ? If it was landlord's I would ask him to come and fix it...

Then why the urgent rush to do a load of laundry in it when you are moving soon?

For our old washer we used to be able to jam a butter knife behind the handle and force the latch in to get it to start.
Firs off, be very careful, those wires are at mains 240 volts and will kill you.
Next off, how are you tricking it?
Hotpoint offer a care &repair package. You can only start it when the product is broken. It's paid for month over 12months if they can't fix they'll replace.

What’s with all the dots, is the full stop button getting stuck on your keyboard?
