    Bought this item from a local supplier the day before I went on holiday, and even though I pointed out that the design looked different I was assured it was ok, IT WASN'T. I ordered the part that night from espares, went on holiday, and to my complete surprise I received a message from my daughter a couple of days later to say she had received the part in the post, watched the on line video and fitting the part, bingo the machine was working ok again. Well done daughter & espares for saving the the day, and one less job for me to do!

    I purchased from this supplier for the cost, less than half the cost of the manufactures web site, The reason for this purchase, was that the washing machine door had to be banged shut to get the switch to make contact, i think this was due to the orginal being held on to the machine by push on plastic. The replacement needed to be screwed to the machine, however the new part did not come with screws, so i had to find a couple of screws that fitted. Having fitted it, the door now only needs to be shut firmly to make the switch.

      Check the motor brushes as if worn they can give the impression of a faulty door lock.
