Hi there the problem you have sounds like the motor has shorted out causing the pcb to blow, sadly this is a costly repair and is usualy not worth repairing as you will need a new motor and pcb

Sounds like a faulty Tstat that's sending a low voltage signal to the contactor coil only sometimes. The high pressure cut out or the compressor's internal thermal protection could of opened, and then closed again after cooling. Make sure the condenser is clean and not obstructed.

Be very careful, it sounds like an electrical failure, were the machine has cut out to protect you and itself. You need an expert there and quickly. Water and electric are a bad mix and more house fires are caused by washers than most other appliances.

Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open

Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

Washing still wet - door won't open.

not a fault with washer. i guess you are plumbed into trap under sink. the spigot you fastened drain hose to is blanked off - there are various methods of doing this including have to saw off the end of the spigot with the bread knife. possible also a fault with pump or filter
