SOURCE: i have a hotpoint washer/dryer

This is usually caused by a poor feed to the hot water valve.

SOURCE: door wont open on my hotpoint aquarius washer/dryer

Turn the dryer dial to off, making sure you can hear it click off, wait 1 min, and then try door. If it will still not open then you may have faulty door lock, or a prob with the door handle.
Plz rate my solution.

Remove the plastic cover at bottom front of washer.
You should see the filter at the right hand side.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

SOURCE: water goes in then straight out of the waste pipe

The waste pipe is probably too low, this is letting the water syphon out.
Try lifting the outlet pipe higher up, this should solve the prob.
There is a line on the back of the washer, which incates the min hieght for drain outlet.
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.
