The Hotpoint error code F03-is a temperature sensor fault
This could be due to the heating element not coming on.

You may think u have checked all but underneath there is a black soft rubber hose and sometimes a sock can get sucked into this and stops draining worth a try if not maybe your pump is gone

Remove the hose to the sensor switch at the tub end and check for obstruction. The small container on the side of the tub may be clogged. Clean with a small drill or piece of wire.

The User Manual for this model was of no help ... other than to suggest unplugging the unit which you already did ...
I could not find specific error codes for your model ... but F06 on Hotpoint washers in general have two definitions for F06:

F06 - Door lock fault
Issue: Washing Machines door cannot be opened or closed / when the door is closed the machine the programme will not start.

F06 - Program selector dial

Since you are having door issues ... then I would say the door lock is indeed the problem.
Check to make sure there is not any debris in the door lock insert, but my guess is that is not your problem.
It could be the latch on the door or the lock switch mechanism in the machine housing. Odds are it is the locking mechanism

Here is a Hotpoint You Tube on how to replace ... but it is not for your specific model

Good luck with your troubleshooting!

Without testing I would suggest that the heating element has shorted to earth enough to take out the RCD.
You should test with a multimeter between the element and the outer sheath which should show 0 if Faulty and replace the element, otherwise it is something else in the circuit i.e. temperature cutout causing the earth leakage.

the New house might be wired different than the old one was, I would check that first ground wire is possibly where a hot one should be

Either lay the machine on its back , you can see the motor underneath, the brushes are on the back end of the motor , or with the machine upright, remove the back plate , the motor is bolted onto the machine at the bottom

Make sure water is cut on at faucets. Make sure screens in hoses and valve aren’t clogged with debris. Make sure hot and cold water hoses aren’t reversed.

From the diagrams on line, I think you have to remove the bottom panel to get at the screws in the bottom. The top appears to be able to be pried up on the front side. That's as far as I can help you.
