I HAVE A HOTPOINT WMA46, I HAVE CHANGED THE RUBBER DOOR SEAL AS IT HAD A LEAK. BEFORE THE LEAK THE WASHING MACHINE WAS ON A WASH CYCLE AND TRIPPED THE RCD.
NOW I HAVE REPLACED THE DOOR SEAL THE DOOR LOCK LIGHT IS FLASHING INDICATING THAT THE DOOR IS NOT LOCKED.

Re: DOOR WILL NOT LOCK
Assuming that you didfi not unwire ther door lock, the problem is probably just that the door seal just needs bedding in and you should be able to start by closing more firmly and pushing in till the door lock catches. did you properly seat the door boot on the cabinet?

From the symptons you describe, it could be a broken or weak spring in the door handle, which ca be fixed relatively inxpensively, that is where i would start, you can purchase one directly from hotpoint, or possibly a local repairer. if that does not cure the problem, then the odds are it will be a faulty programme module.
Hope this helps.
