I have a wml720 hotpoint.... I have had issues with the door

Customer Question

Hi I have a wml720 hotpoint.... I have had issues with the door lock previously and have replaced it.... Recently it started again and I found that unplugging the door lock and plugging in again resolved the issue. Now however the machine won't start... The lock clicks 6 times then the lock light flashes.... Along with the start/pause button which is slowly flashing orange.... Any clues!?

Turn the main selector switch into the Off position.
Press and hold the Super Rinse and Rinse Hold buttons simultaneously while selecting 'H' on the selector knob.
Continue to hold these buttons for at least 5 seconds.
3 of the LEDs will begin to flash.
Now press the Start/Cancel for 2 seconds.
The Rinse Hold led will be lit and the Super Rinse will be flashing.
The Final Spin led may be on or off at this stage.
Briefly press the Rinse Hold button.
The Rinse Hold led will be flashing and the Super Rinse will be lit indicating the last know error mode.

I think this is instructions for a different model... Mine has super wash, extra rinse, mini load and reduced creases.... And I don't have an H on the selector knob... Just AB and C then numbers 1 to 13. My machine is a wml730.

Press both Start/Cancel and On/Off buttons together until d OFF appears.
The default screen returns and you can select a new programme.

Ok, given that you have replaced the lock, those 2 lights flashing indicate either the door lock, wiring or main control board is faulty. So you have already replaced the door lock, you need to check that the wiring is not damaged and if that is okay then you need to replace the control board.
