Hello, my name is George..
Check that the door is properly shut

The door is shut properly . On the display it shows the programmes. After selecting the programme I press the start button that's flashing but a negative tone is heard and won't run. This happens with any programme selected.
Put the program on SPIN ONLY and try to run the program by pressing start.. Let me know what happens
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's still not running and giving the same tone.
When you have pressed Start, can you then open the door straight away?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Your door interlock is failing to lock and the tone is to instruct you of that..
The fault could be:
Door interlock failure
Wiring to door interlock
It is most likely to be just a failed door interlock
