    the flashing has occured for years but now the machine stops mid cycle and I have to restart the macj=hine 2 to three time before it will reach the end of the cycle. Looks like the door lock is sending a message that is not locked and stops the cycle but not sure.

Try holding the door in, and seeing if it completes the cycle

Push the door handle in once with your knee - this is required to make it start. It's not a fault.

When my hotpoint wma 48 is on a wash cycle water starts seaping through the front door. Gets worse when it goes on to the spin cycle. Please help

Clean the door itself and the door seal. close the door and give the glass bowl a tap at the bottom where it meets the seal with your fist this should do it.If not change the door seal

I have a hotpoint wma48 wash machine.when i close the door.the door lockrd light flashes.anyone know what is wrong

Could be a broken spring in the door handle, if you slam the door, and it works o/k, then that is what it is going to be.
To be certain, you need to seperate the 2 door halves by removing all the screws, and prizing the 2 halves apart
Hope this helps..
