The lid switch assembly has a latch to prevent opening the lid in spin (it hooks through the stirup on the lid) you can get into it by inserting a thin screw driver into the crack between the top and the front panel and pushing in on the clips located at both sides you can see the clip it is ca. 1 inch wide about 3-4 inches in from the side just push in and lift then get the other corner.
lift up the top and you can access the latch assembly

Many or even most washing machines will not run if the door lock switch is not working. Open and close the door a few times to see if the light stops flashing. You could press on the door where the latch is and see if that makes a difference.

Hotpoint wt940


the door is not locking , possibly caused by the interlock itself or motor brushes worn ( most likely if machine is a few years old at least ) could also be no power to lock via control board .

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'door' stands for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Door lock


Switch off. Try some WD40 on the machine lock (not on door) and open & close door many times, to ease out the lock.
