Hoover 9144DG -Door lock symbol blinking. Machine doesnt work.

Customer Question

Hoover 9144DG -Door lock symbol blinking. Machine doesn't work. I select the programme (Coloureds) press dart and immediately the door lock symbol starts flashing. I have checked the filter (empty) pushed against the door but no avail. If I press the start for more than 3 seconds all other lights start flashing but still not working. I have also tried the spin cycle but still nothing. The door closes with a nice click - any ideas

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

Can you tell me, when you close the door aand select the cycle, are you able to re open the door, or has it actually locked?

I can re-open the door

Hi Adam

This sounds like you have a failed door interlcok

The original lock is no longer available. However it looks like there is a replacement.
Do you want to replace this yourself, its fairly straightforward?

Can you tell me how old the machine is please?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I think the machine is 3-4 yrs old. We would like to replace the lock ourselves. Please advise
