[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Replacing A Door Lock[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]To replace a washing machine door lock is fairly straightforward and most people with some time and common sense will be able to do this without too much trouble in most cases.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]It is worth pointing out that not all washing machines are the same and that the process for some washing machine models may differ from that laid out below. The general principles however do remain the same regardless of the machine as all washing machines must have a door safety interlock fitted.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]There are probably (we've not looked) a load of videos out there that claim to be tutorials on how to replace a door interlock and, that's all well and good but they are usually quite model specific. And, we've not seen any that actually show you how the professional repairer would do replace a door lock. Our way is faster and safer but it does require your attention for ten minutes to read through the tutorial and understand what you are doing and not just trying to copy what's in a two minute video.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]First Step In Replacing A Washing Machine Door Lock[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Make sure that the power is off.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Now make sure the power is off again and the plug is removed from the socket.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Seriously, every year many people are electrocuted doing simple electrical repairs and a washing machine door lock will often carry mains current electricity. Touch the wrong wire and you could get a nasty shock, touch the wrong two and you could end up dead.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Even professional [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]washing machine repair[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] guys get blase about it, then they don't for a while after they get a belt of mains power. It reminds them to check.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Check. It could save your life.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Getting To The Washing Machine Door Lock[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Often this is where a lot of people stumble, the first hurdle.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]You can do this the hard way, like a lot of people assume and try to access the door lock from the top of the machine, reaching down past the control panel, controller, switches and so on and possibly damaging them. Or, you can get to the door lock the easy way we'll show you.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]First of all, the washing machine door lock lives here, behind the two screws on the front panel of the washing machine.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]The black surround to the squarish hole is where the door catch or door pecker engages with the door lock. The door lock then powers and locks the door shut.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]The next bit is the clever part.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Rather than, as stated before, reaching down, quite possibly damaging something else on the washing machine or tearing the backs of your hands to shreds, we [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]washing machine repair[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] people prefer the easy option.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]As you can see in the photo below, the next thing we do is to pop off the front door seal retaining band with a flat headed screwdriver as shown.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Once off, as below, the band can easily be set aside until you put it all back together.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Next, fold the door seal back inside the drum of the washing machine as shown below.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]This should be pretty easy to do and, once folded back the door seal or gasket should stay there. This is a bit more awkward on a washer dryer due to the vent and may well take a bit more messing about.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Make sure there's no power again before proceeding as, at this point, there's a danger.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Now you want to undo the screws for the door lock itself as shown here.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Once these screws are released the door lock will be floating about inside the washing machine with only the wiring holding it in position. The lock should drop free.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Reach in and retrieve the door lock like so:[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]As you can see it can now be accessed quite freely and replaced easily with normally plenty of room to work in the area.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Now all you have to do is replace the door lock and put your washing machine back together in reverse of the instructions above.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Bypassing A Washing Machine Door Lock[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]In days of yore it was possible, by bridging certain terminals, to bypass the door lock on a washing machine. On occasion it gor repair professionals out of a hole when we had to order up a new door lock that we didn't have. Of course we also had to explain this to the customer and ensure that they understood the situation for safety.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]In modern machines this is not possible as the electronic controller will read the door lock, the resistance and so on amnd will not allow the washing machine to start a program unless the door lock is engaged.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]On door locks that use a pressure sensor to detect that there is water in the machine, a lot of [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Zanussi[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] and Hotpoint washing machines used to use these, it is not possible to bypass the lock.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Asides which most door locks are now using keyed connectors so that makes it even harder to bypass a door lock now.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]In any event, without understanding what you are doing and, being able to ensure safety, it's a big no to this practice now.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Door Lock Variations[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]We mentioned above the door lock that has a pressure sensor on them.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]These door locks had a small pressure switch that detected when the drum still had water in it. What this meant was that if your washing machine hadn't drained or, drained correctly, that the door would not open. Door locks like these have largely died away as they were not the most reliable of things and more expensive.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Some door locks can be complex affairs which does affect the pricing with some of the German brands have door locks that cost a lot. Most however are pretty standard affairs and are not terribly expensive.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Ordering a New Washing Machine Door Lock[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]For a lot of washing machine and washer dryer door lock you do need the model number to make sure you get the correct part.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]For most you will find the model number printed on the control panel of the machine, as [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Zanussi[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif], Beko and others do or, more often, on the rating plate that you will normally find inside the door, on the filter flap or on the back.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Without the model number and, sometimes even the serial number or PNC, it may not be possible to identify the correct lock that you need.[/FONT]
