Machine cycle won't start, it just beeps and the red lock sign flashes.
I have a Hotpoint WMA34 (1000 Spin). The appliance stopped mid-way through a cycle because of an electrical fault. I changed the power source (making sure it's the same ampage). I unloaded the machine, dried out the water, and powerd up the machine. The machine powered up, but the cycle did not start. Instead, the "door-lock" button started flashing.

IF you machine is a wma39 not a wmm39a then what has happed is that you control board is blown basically.
TO check this remove the soap draw and you will c three screws remove them... TO make removing the panel easier i would suggest removing the top as well as the front panel is wedged into it.. Then unclip the board from the panel and you will c where the big wiring plug is attached that the tracks on the board are blown.. There is no point replacing the board untill you can work out what has caused it to blow because it will blow again.. Its usually the motor or the doorlock which blows the board.. Trust me i been dealing with this type of machine for years...

the belt has come off both the pulley and the motor how can i get this back on ????

To refit belt, remove top cover and rear lower panel at bottom of washer.
Tilt the m/c towards you.,you may need assistance to hold m/c.
Put the belt round the motor pulley first, and then fit it on drum pulley, slowly turn the pulley feeding the belt round as you go, it will be very tight, so be careful not to trap fingers., just keep going until belt is on, there is no adjustment needed as belt is self tensioning.
The belt needs to sit in the middle of the pulley.
Plz rate my solution.

Do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power. It is a good idea to take digital pictures of the pump assembly before attempting to work on it or remove it so that you can refer back to it when you reassemble the unit or replace it with a new unit at a later date / time.
8. Remove and check the electrical connections to the pump and make sure they are in good order.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage. If they are then clean them thoroughly.
10. Then remove the pump and check motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. Also check that the pump impeller vanes are in good order and not blocked. If necessary replace the pump with a new and identical unit.
11. Carefully reassemble the pump observing the correct placement of gaskets, seals, O Rings, hoses and securing straps, electrical wiring.
12. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
Also see additional info to follow.

heating up ok, it just wont go round, how much will it cost for repair? is it a easy job? is it a lost cause? help!!!

If you can hear the motor going, then the belt probably needs replacing, if no motor action, then prob is more serious.
Please rate my solution.

my Hotpoint WML540 door lock light flashes and clicks 3 or 4 times then wont do anything? Is it a fault with the lock (which looks easy to replace) or something more serious?

First try unplugging the washer machine for about fifteen minutes or so. Then plug it back in. If the problem still there, then it is the board. It can be fix.
