Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'
How many wires to your door interlock?
This could well be the door interlock but also it coudld be PCB etc etc
There are three wires to the door interlock switch and all are live even when the switch is depressed as in when the door is closed etc?
I know it could be the PCB and I know it could be the door interlock switch. Is there a way of by passing the door interlock switch to check its function please?
I am new to this asking of questions online, is there going to be anymore replys as you have asked me a question and the problem has not yet been resolved please?
I will gladly accept the payment if I receive an answer that helps me etc?
Yes The door lock has no NUETRAL so I doubt it is the door lock. To by-pass as test ONLY you can join the LIVE and COMMON . Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you leave your door lock BYPASSED. This is a test only procedure.
Please test your pump for continuity before lookingat the PCB's
Hello, I have done that. I have connected the live and the common. There is no change?
OK As said there is no NUETRAL so it is not the DOOR LOCK
When the switch to the interlock is depressed as in when the door is closed, shouldn't this open or close the circuit and so one of the terminals should then be dead as the circuit is broken? By passing the live and common made no difference? Nor has diconnecting the terminals in turn?
Do you have a NUETRAL at MAINS In?
Would it not be easier to talk to you over the phone? And explain exactly what I have done etc.
EDITED FOR TOS COMPLIANCE
It was the double pole on off switch that was faulty. The neutral terminal had broken off, but also the door interlock is faulty because now I have repaired the on off switch, the door interlock is still not working and I have had to by pass that as we discussed to get the washer to work.
Thank you very much for all your help as you pointed me in the right direction. I did not know that the main on off switch was double pole! So I could not understand why we had power to and from the interlock switch and to the PCB etc but yet it was not working. Thanks again. Regards, XXXXX
