Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I have a hotpoint wd640 washer dryer: are you meant to clean the filter for the dryer, and if do where is it?!


The dryer part of the appliance does not have a seperate filter to clean as such, as the fluff and lint is cleared away by a constant supply of cold water coming in on the drying cycle.

Got lots of fluff under the drum


You will find the filter at the rear of washer..
Remove rear lower panel, on right you will see a large black hose that goes to the bottom of drum,
Undo clip that secures hose, and remove hose, be careful as there will be some water run out.
Remove plastic filter and ball inside hose, and clean filter, replace and fit hose back onto tub, making sure it is on properly.
Test for leaks before you refit rear panel back on.
You may have to repeat the process more than once if there is a lot of fluff present.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Hotpoint dryer CTD00


Remove the lint filter at the front bottom left of dryer, and run water through it to clean all the fluff out. Clean the other filter, and make sure the air vents air clear.
Before you replace the bottom filter reach inside the opening and remove any build up of fluff and gunge that you can ,get a plastic bag tie or similar and feel for and poke clear a small hole that is located there.
I f it still does not work, then the element and or stats are probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
