Door ERROR during wash - interlock fault?
About a year ago (almost to the day!!!), I had a load of washing that I couldn't get out of my washer because the door wouldn't open. Upon investigation I found that the door interlock has burnt out. I'm not sure what the piece is called that connects to the interlock (connector block?), but it was badly burnt and slightly melted, although the 3 metal contacts were still intact. Some of the interlock was damaged too, so I bought a new interlock and fit it to the burnt connector and it has been fine since. But this evening during a wash, my machine started beeping to say there was a door error - that it wasn't closed. When I pushed on the door, I heard a buzzing noise and the lock icon was shown on the display, but when I tried to rerun the wash, it said the same error. I'm not sure what to do? Do I buy a new interlock, or is the connector the problem - if so are these replaceable too, or does it mean I need a new machine? :(

I've added a photo showing the old burnt out interlock and the burnt connector. I noticed on my new interlock, that one of the contacts is slightly burnt...possibly causing the door error. Hopefully, if I get a new interlock, the problem will go away, unless its the connector block that also needs replacing...
