M/c starts cycle and then stops and the Speed iron and and pre wash lights intermittently flash, the door remains locked. I have tried cleaning filter and that was blocked but is now clear and appears to be draining ok.
Found that pipe leading from the drum to the filter was blocked. Machine at first appeared to be draining but on closer inspection was not draining fast enough. Machine now working perfectly. Hope this helps anyone who may have a similar problem.

It could be a bad door lock switch. I had taken my machine apart to clean the boot and accidentally dislodged one of the plugs (there were 3 on the mechanism) on the door lock mechanism. I got the same actions from my machine as you are. Since you probably haven't taken anything apart, a bad switching mechanism can cause the same problems.
