There are 3 possibilities 1 altough the water as drianed the pressure switch as not released due to blocake in the filter, or the interlock has jammed on the closed position which means it will have to forced open or the last fault could be the power board has gone.

How do i open my door on the washing machine it has finished the programme but wont open and washing is still in the machine

If all the water has drained away. POWER OFF. Lid has to be removed. slide arm down inside of front panel to door lock and rease it. A new door lock would be required. An engineer can do this

No water check supply

keep on pressing the start button for 30 second it should reset

E15 code on display of Hotpoint ultima extra WD72.

E15 means that it is not draining fast enough. As well as checking the outlet pipes, check the filter leading to the pump. Disconnect the power and pipe. If possible take outside because there will be a residual amount of water. Remove the back panel, then disconnect the locking rings holding the tubes on. Your main target should be the big downflow rubber tube from the drum, in here is a plastic filter. In mine I found a child's sock... plus slime. Problem solved.

Door will not unlock

You will have to remove the top cover, and release the door from the inside of the washer by forcing the door lock open manually

Hotpoint Ultima Extra door lock will not unlock at end of cycle

could be a defective door lock. these door locks have resistance within them and with the application of power, bi-metal moves and lock the doors.

test it again by using the unit and after 10 mins and the door won't un-lock , try to knock the door switch a little bit and see if it would unlock. if it does, then it is the door lock. it is getting sticky.
