There is a small electronic lock on the inside of the machine where the striker unit of the door locks into and it sounds as though this have malfunctioned. You can change this quite simply.
Power Off machine
Take metal band which hold on door seal
Peel door seal off and you can now put your hand in and take this interlock out
Sometimes the lock will have screws to secure to the body of the machine
The lock might have visible signs where it has burnt but sometimes it wont
You can buy this lock from a parts supplier by quoting the model number and serial or product number found on the inside of the door
If this fails to work you most probably have a fault with the main board not recognising the door lock. For reconditioned modules and mother boards you can goto http://emwelec.co.uk/

SOURCE: Hotpoint WT540 1400 spin Washing Machine stuck on cycle

Could be a sticking water level switch, which controls the water level, or a blockage in the hose to the switch, or a trapped or split hose to the switch. the hose in question is about 6mm in diam,and goes from the sump hose to the pressure switch,if u remove the hose from the preesure switch chamber, check for a blockage there, and blow down the hose to see if it is clear, u should hear the switch click if it is clear, if no click and hose is clear, then I wud say the switch is faulty.
Plz rate my comments.
Thanks

SOURCE: The door catch on my Hotpoint Aquarius WT540

You need to seperate the 2 halves of the door, remove all screws securing the 2 halves together, and prize apart.
You will then see how all the parts are fitted.

Keep trying to unscrew it, as it should come right out for cleaning. A little water will come out too so put a small tray under the machine first.

Look at my other solutions, as for DOOR light flashing.
