    Was a modified superseded part and not identical to the original old part which threw me at first but no worries, Espares to the rescue again. Never any doubt it wouldn't work! Job sorted, many thanks.
  • Great price, great product!

      Check for worn motor brushes as this is a common problem that gives this symptom.

  • Q On a Hotpoint Aquarius: the Machine keeps switching off and the" door locked" light flashes. Could this be caused by a faulty door lock which keeps releasing and stopping the programme? 1 Answer

      It is not necessarily a problem caused by the door lock. Check motor brushes first and see what part of the cycle the problem occurs. Check out our diagnosis videos in our advice centre for more information.

  • Q Indesit IWME126. Door locked, all lights flashing. Does anyone know whether buying only the washing machine door interlock part is enough? Do I need an engineer to check circuit board? Opened machine to release the door by pushing down on the door catch 1 Answer

      Just because the door does not open does not always point to a faulty door lock as if the machine recognises a 'fault' then it will often lock the door. Check what is working after restarting and see our video as you may not be able to replace the control module if it is needed.

  • Q any tips on removing the rubber seal/retaining band if there is no clip? 1 Answer

    I think my door interlock needs replaced, your video shows removing the clip to get the rubber seal off. If my rubber seal has no clip should I just force it out? Any tips as it feels very tight and a flat head screw driver is not budging it!

      On Indesit machines the door seal is fixed to the front panel by a retaining band like the one shown in Stock Number: ES831870. This has a spring (often at the bottom or hinge side). use a small screwdriver on this spring to start to pull off. for more details check our video: How to replace the door seal on a washing machine - Hotpoint
