FO1 is a motor based faultcode, however door lock falt can only be caused by a faulty doorlock or pcb. Regards Advisor

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(

Error message f01

F-01 Motor triac short circuit this means that there is something wrong with the main board. but there is a thing to try 1st try unplugging the machine for 5 mins and plugging it back in and switch it on and try again. if it still dose not work after some attempts then it looks like you need to get the engineer out to fix it, hope this helps.

My hotpoint ultima has stopped halfway through a wash and has the word door flashing.

It happened on our machine. The soloution to this for me was to take the lid off (two screws). Unplugged from mains. I found the connector to the door had vibrated off and was just hanging loose. Plugged it back in and it worked straight away.Door opens as normal.
Don't forget to look in the manual for how to get the door open in an emergency

Hotpoint ultima washing machine is showing a fault

F 05 normally means there is a blockage or a fault with the pressure sensor. The common place for blockage is in the black pipe from the drum to the pump as it has a filter in here and clogs up. remove the pipe and clean the filter out and remove gunk from the pressure sensor on the side of the pipe as well. If that does not fix things the pressure switch could be faulty itself
