the shaft seal on the plastic tub in the machine may be leaking or the pump out hose that goes to the water pump may be leaking,if you can remove a cover from the machine and put water in the machine and watch it go through the cycles you may be able to spot where the problem is

the problem here is the machine is not emptying when its supposed to, you will find it is stopping at the rinse cycles. there is a sump underneath the machine that needs to be emptied. From my experiences, 9 out of 10 hotpoints that i would of repaired with the same problem as you are having is usualy caused by using the color catcher sheets, they are a disaster.

If the door lock indicator light is flashing it means the door is not closed .......or the machine thinks it's not closed. Give the door an extra push just in case, the areas to check would be the switch, the wiring connections and the tracks on the module. If you find any tracks on the module have blown also check the motor for lose or broken wires because the module does not blow for no reason.

Testimonial: "Many thanks have checked door closing ok it looks like it might be the door interlock but I'm not sure how to test it"

Many modern washing machines display error codes if they detect a fault, but not all washing machines display a readable error code, some indicate an error by flashing, or lighting some of the lights.
Hotpoint, Indesit, Zanussi error codes
Hotpoint, Indesit washing machines and Zanussi washing machines are some common appliances that display coded error codes. On their more expensive models, they display readable error codes but basic models (without digital displays) use flashing lights to convey the error fault code.
If your washing machine malfunctions and you can see some of the lights flashing, or one or more option lights have lit up, then make a note of which lights are flashing and which option lights are lit. NOTE: the error code list engineers have only shows the option lights by number and not by name. Therefore you need to report the lights as LED 1 and 3, or 2 and 4 etc. and NOT "delay timer" and "extra rinse". Count the lights from the left (or from the top if in a column) and report as "led 1 and 3" etc.
No Option lights?
With basic washing machines that have no option indicator lights, count the number of flashes. For example, the door locked indicator may flash 7 times, pause, and flash another 7 times in a constant cycle which would indicate error code 7.
This information is vital, and needs mentioning when reporting a fault.
