    Came in this afternoon and found my machine with the red light on final spin, considering I had put the load on before I left for work this morning I was not expecting to see this, anyway I went to open the door, nothing, switched it to the off position expecting it to click but nothing, put it on a short spin, it still didn't work. HELP!

I am a recently retired engineer and this sounds like a damaged interlock, its possible that it is faulty and the contacts inside have fused shut, make sure the power is switched off and unplugged for a while and try again first, make sure the cycle has also finished and the machine is empty, etc, to open the door if its still stuck remove the lid and move the clip from behind, you may find that the machine may not work after this, if so replace the interlock with a new one. work safe remove plug, if this has helped please rate me thank you

Hotpoint aquarius extra wma40 - door locked light is flashing and want lock. also before this happened a sound from the machine like an explosion which blew out fuse in the house. please advice

I suspect that the top control board has blown , this happens when the brushes wear out in the motor, and short circuit the motor armature, which in turn blows the control board.
Either way it is likely to be an expensive repair, my advice to you would be to buy a new washer if it is more than 5 years old.
I know from experience that this is the most likely course.
