Question about Hotpoint WD52 Front Load Washer / Dryer
My machine started giving a code (I don't remember which one) during the cycle and it stopped working. I tried to drain and spin, but it only hummed. We tried turning the power off and on and now the door is locked and the machine won't work. how can I get the door open?
Has the fuse blown, if so replace this to ge the machine up and working to start with, set to drain only if you have the option, if the machine empties then the door may open, if its set to spin and the electric trips then there is a motor fault,, not much information given but now you have somewhere to start from

1 of 2 things could be the trouble.
Does the washer drain properly if you manually turn the control knob? If not then this sounds like your pump is either plugged with possible lint and can't move or has died completely. 99% chance pump is the problem and 99% chance it can be an easy fix by cleaning the pump where the Drain Line is attached, worst case scenario pump is to be replaced, but not a overall expensive fix and most can do it without a technician.
Second problem is possibly the time itself, but if the washer is going through all cycles except spin then pump is likely the culprit, cause in spin cycle the machine has to drain the water from the unit as it spins, if it cannot the washing machine basically stops and cannot complete the cycle.
One way to tell for sure if the pump is the problem. When the machine enters the spin cycle and starts making that noise. Manually turn the dial a little bit till it passes the spin cycle, if it continues to wash till it hits the final spin/drain cycle then stops again...your pump is in need of help.
