It very well is the door switch might be stuck. The way to unstick it is to slam the door. Very often it'll jar the switch loose if that doesn't work you'll need to order one. Easy to install there are youtube videos on it. If you need the part...try or
Hope this info helps a little.

SOURCE: Door Lock LED flashing

The solution from testy helped me but I decided to change it.

I cut the plastic latch away from the end of the interlock,just the little bar that holds the door closed.This means that the lock position doesn't affect the door.

I then used the little piece of plastic to act as 2 packing pieces to hold the lock half closed. This works fine.

Don't push the lock fully closed or it doesn't work

SOURCE: WMA 54 Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine lights flashing

the problem here is the machine is not emptying when its supposed to, you will find it is stopping at the rinse cycles. there is a sump underneath the machine that needs to be emptied. From my experiences, 9 out of 10 hotpoints that i would of repaired with the same problem as you are having is usualy caused by using the color catcher sheets, they are a disaster.

you need one of these

take the lid off and open the door
isolate the mains supply and water supply

remove the two screws that secure the interlock
this is what the doors catch sits in
reach down and tilt slide it out
remove the plug
plug in the new one
and remount
screw back in the two screws hand tight avoid stripping the plastic

and return the lid in position
now reconnect the water and mains and test
the door closes and the machine should now work aok

My washing maching,hotpoint aquarius 7 kg wmf740 door wont auto lock so cant work and flashing door on the display,can you advise what the possible problem is?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Either require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
