If the door locked light is flashing, then in all probability, the main p.c.b board has blown due to a motor fault which caused the fuse to blow in the first case..
If no llight at all, then could be broken door latch or spring. If you pull on the handle and it feels sloppy , then that is where your problem is, it is not very often a door lock fails on one of these m/c's.

Hotpoint aquarius extra wma40 - door locked light is flashing and want lock. also before this happened a sound from the machine like an explosion which blew out fuse in the house. please advice


Hi.
I suspect that the top control board has blown , this happens when the brushes wear out in the motor, and short circuit the motor armature, which in turn blows the control board.
Either way it is likely to be an expensive repair, my advice to you would be to buy a new washer if it is more than 5 years old.
I know from experience that this is the most likely course.

How do I change the door seal on my Hotpoint WMA40 washing machine?


It's a push fit seal. Carefully remove the old one and for help, smear the new seal where it fits the machine and just push it into place securely.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Stops few mins into cycle


I assume you have checked the obvious and replaced the fuse in the plug, if fuse o/k, try plug in another socket.
If still no joy, make sure you have the door lat
ched in properly, as sometimes the spring in the door handle can become weak or break, and this prevents the door from locking properly.
If still no lights showing, then I would possibly suspect faulty door lock

Cycle finished but door won't unlock, please help


normally, front loading machines have this bypass cables in case this things happens, if there is a small opening at the front to acces the drain filter, open it up then look for a small plastic pc with a ring at the end. this is the pull release cable of the door lock. pull it downwards and the door will be released.

if you do not have the small opening to access the drain filter, you can tilt the machine to its back, ( be carefull, its very heavy) then reach for the plastic ring underneath to pull to release the door lock.

tnx 4 using fixya..
