    The door locked light has started flashing on Hotpoint WML520.
    The machine will not do anything!

    If I turn it off at the wall and leave it 10 seconds then turn it back on the door lock makes a loud screech noise and the door locked light stays lit?

    It will then start any programme you select for about 2 seconds before stopping and not doing anything.

    After that the door will not open!!!!!!!!!

    Is it time for a new machine?

    When it makes a loud screech noise is it on spin or nothing at all just standby. Check the connections on the pcb door lock wires are loose. Hence it's not locking , a motor fault can also cause this.

    It seems to be the door lock making the screech noise.

    Replace the door lock. It's controlled by a solinoid.
