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?

Water leaks on spin cycle


Water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Hotpoint WMA46 door problem


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.
