Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
I replaced the heating element which had shorted out causing the plug fuse to blow. Washer operates until its time to pump out but then clicks and all 5 lights begin to flash and the door unlocks but the lock indicator is still lit along with the green end light. I have stripped the pump down to see if anything is trapped and getting a resisistance of 224 ohms

the machine is pulling to much power.check to see if it is on a 15 or 20 amp outlet. you said you replaced the fuse. the amp size should be on it. if it is a 15 amp fuse,plug the machine into a 20 amp circuit and see if the fuse blows then. it shouldn't since it wasn't blowing everytime on the 15 amp circuit, but never put a 20 amp fuse in a 15 amp socket! the fuse can handle the load[ no pun intended], but the electrical wire would burn not blowing the fuse, thus causing a fire.
hope this helps.

If you have had a lightning storm or power surge it may have fried the electronics panel. That is what happened to mine. Once it is fixed you should put a surge suppressor on it that is rated for major appliances.

I too had this intermittent problem with my Bosch. The repair people didn't seem to know what to look for until today. This service technician, unlike the others, noticed the soot and looked at the circuit board. He contacted the Bosch service center and was told it was probably a bad motor that had caused the circuit board to go bad and told him what to look for. Sure enough, that was the problem. Unfortunately, the previous technicians didn't do this while it was still under warranty for the electronics (5 years), so the cost to replace the motor and circuit board will be $770. I think I'll buy another machine.
