Diswasher Indesit DIF04

Ok, from what i have read on t' internet perhaps buying one of these wasnt the smartest move. Anyway had it a couple of years and its actually been fine, until last week.

The machine appears to be OK. Lights work and it beeps when selecting programme, but when I close the door nothing happens. Its always need a bit of a slam but now nothing. I got it to start for a few seconds last week by slamming / leaning on the door (no wonder its bust!) but since then nothing.

I have taken the front panel off, and the wires to the door look ok. The door catch also appears to ok. can anyone recommend anything. I dont want to chuck out a machine that probably just needs a bit of TLC.

Any advice really appreciated,

Ta

Check the brown wires on the front that go the bottom of the door , inspect the thin bar that covers the loom at the bottom poss broken , give them a little tug.

Is that the two wires that run up the inside of the door to the locking mechanism. Is it possible to just unconnect then put them together. Is it ok to do this, assume low voltage running through them?

I can't unconnect them. I presume that means they have to be cut and put together? Total novice when comes to electrics. Not sure me and 240V are a good combination

Ok try this. On the micro switch is a black bobble push that in with a small screwdriver. Does it start, but you must hold and wait 15 secounds.

Looked all over the switch but can't find that bobble. Tried closing the switch with screwdriver but no luck. Thanks for all the quick replies btw :)

No nothing else , door lock looks suspect as you got power to it.
