I know this is an old question but for the benefit of anyone else having the problem, here's how I fixed it on our machine ( a WMF540 P (UK) R ).
Our clicked about 6 times then displayed the "door" error. The clicking noise is the solenoid inside the door interlock. The fact that it was clicking showed that it was functioning. Just as a precaution I removed and disassembled the interlock to check it and everything inside was fine.
Next, I removed the rear panel of the machine, took off the drive belt, disconnected the white plug and earth lead from the motor. Undid the two bolts holding the motor and dropped the motor out of the bottom of the machine.
The commutator was completely black. I removed the carbon brush holders and gave everything a blast of compressed air to get rid of the carbon dust. I then used a piece of very fine wet and dry abrasive paper and cleaned the commutator so that it was nice and shiny again. The brushes looked like they were on their last legs but as I didn't have any others available I just put them back.
After replacing the motor and the belt I tested the machine and it worked fine. Now I'll buy some spare brushes and replace them at some conveniente time in the future.

The empty tank & clean filter light will come after EVERY use of the machine,
because it is reminding you that this is what the user manual tells you that you're supposed to do EVERYTIME you use the machine.
If the machine breaks down because it's full of fluff, it may invalidate your warranty & a water tank with just a little water, is a lot easier to empty than a full one.!

F06 is a water level fault.
It will either be due to a faulty vacuum switch (which is the hockey-puck thing with the little tube to it,
or it will be not draining properly because of a blocked or faulty outlet pump or filter.
The worst case scenario is that it might be a control board failure.

Check the filter & pump first.
Check to see if the vacuum switch switches by sucking or blowing into the tube.
Sometimes just doing that can free it up if was stuck.?
Best of luck.

First of all, make sure you have a machine witch is not with welded tub, a lot of these machines are made with sealed tub, so in this case you have a problem....
Check if it's with removable front panel, remove kickplate plastic down and chek for screws that hold front panel. If there are no screws and front is welded, it means you will need to remove tub upwards, which is a PITA. You need to remove all hoses, wires from motor, heater, sensors, unscrew shock absorber, remove detergent drawer from top, door gasket. and when everything disconnected, lift up the tub. Ask for some help because it's heavy.

Is the outlet water pipe bent at all, in a way that would prevent the water from exiting? If not then I would confidently say that the pump has failed, if the machine has warrentee I would call hotpoint for an engineer visit... I hope this helps.....
