Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

 

By far and away the most likely cause of this is a bad door lock.

 

Would you want to replace this yourself or would you like an all inclusive quote for the repair? If the latter, please let me have the postcode

 

Thanks

Hi Elen

 

Before the program can start, the machine has to recognise that the door is locked.

 

If it cant do this, the machine wont start and the door lock will release

 

Hence my reasoning for thinking the door lock is at fault

it does recognise the door is locked as the light comes on to show the door is locked
