If it's anything like the WM65 then I did it myself this evening. Be aware that I'm no professional. POWER SAFE? Three screws on the back of the top cover. Top off Remove the soap/fabric softener tray. Four screws off around the gap that's left. Three knobs to pull off (it helps if you remember which way they are set when you do this!) Take the rectangular control panel off, which should now be loose - it has interlocks on the right hand side, so be careful not to break them. You may need to tie or tape the panel safely out of your way to te top of the machine. Three screws off the top off the door section. Open the door unscrew the two short screws holding the lock plate. The interlock switch will fall off the back of the door, held on by it's power supply. Stick your hand round the back and pull it clear. Swap the mechanism (mine cost £14) Reverse procedure. Good luck. This wasn't the fault on my machine in the end. boo hoo!

Same issue with loose solder joint on the relays inside CCU (computer control unit)
the same bad CCU is used by several manufactures.
you have to open the CCU and re-solder the the relays to the board. they have microcracks around the legs.
you will get the door lock issue randomly.
to prove the issue open the top access panel .and pull up on the center black plastic connector and the issue will go away.

The three wires you should have are
1-Brown-goes to L
2 Thin black to N
3 White to C..
Hotpoint never have incorporated a wiring diagram on any of their british made appliances, so previous comments made do not apply in this case.
Hope this helps.

This sound like the main control board has blown and this is due to the motor shorting out, if you isolate the power supply and remove the control panel you will be able to remove the pcb/module and inspect it for signs of burning or split tracks if you find this is the case usually it is cheaper to replace the machine than purchase a pcb and motor.
