F12 indicates 2 or 3 differant faults.
Try these first.
Press and hold start/ cancel button for at least 3 seconds, and see if jt works.
Make sure hot and cold water taps are turned on and that you are getting water to the m/c.
Select a drain prog, and see if it pumps out o/k.
If all these do not solve problem, then you have a communication error between boards, this entails calling an engineer out.
If it is under 5 years old then you should be covered by the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee.
Plz rate my solution .Thanks.

My door is shut and light is on flashing door on my hotpoint washing machine WT741. the door is shut and it does lock aswel so why the flashing light and no washing being done?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with the 'door closed' sensor/microswitch requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

You will probably need to clean the pump filter.
To access the pump filter,remove the lower plastic panel at front of washer, there you will see the filter, unscrew the cover anti-clockwise, remove filter and clean.
This should clear the fault.
If it does not , let me know, and i can can tell you other things to look for.
