Your switch bracket or switch is either broken or you have no either to or from it. Check your switch first.

My Hotpoint WML540 door lock light flashes and clicks 3 or 4 times then wont do anything? Is it a fault with the lock (which looks easy to replace) or something more serious?

First try unplugging the washer machine for about fifteen minutes or so. Then plug it back in. If the problem still there, then it is the board. It can be fix.

My Hotpoint WML540 wont start wash cycle. The door lock clicks 4 or 5 times then the red door lock light flashes.

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.

My hotpoint washing machine (model wma50) will not start due to the door lock light flashing yet the door is closed

common problem on these machine's, you need a new door handle which comes as a full assembley with spring and all attached.

open the door, using star screw driver remove top and bottom screws along with two near the catch.

the doo wil split enough to remove old handle and fit new 1.

Door is likely open. Open and close it and see if it gives a clicking sound to indicate it is closed.

Hotoint WMA34 door light keeps flashing and machine wont start

The light flashing usually indicates that the door is not closed securely. this can be caused by a weak or broken door handle spring.
If you are satisfied that the handle is o/k, then the other possibility is that the control module has a blown track, this can be accessed by removing the top cover.
Hope this nhelps.
