Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me its complete model number

KevinWhiteJA :

and how old is it ?

Customer:

It is about 7 years old i think the number is E-Nr.WT46E387GB/07 FD8702200082

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, so basically it wont do anything...

KevinWhiteJA :

I mean you just press start and it beeps twice and then nothing ... it wont even give a error code ...correct ?

KevinWhiteJA :

no flashing lights as well ?

Customer:

The start stop button flashes and two beeps and nothing

KevinWhiteJA :

OK the problem is with the door interlock mechanism that is bad and will need replacement

KevinWhiteJA :

the part will cost around £20

KevinWhiteJA :

It seems the control detects that the door is still not closed and so beeps twice and will not start

KevinWhiteJA :

You can contact Siemens 0344(###) ###-####or www.repaircare.co.uk if you want to get this done by a tech
