have a Hotpoint washing machine, wasnt the cheapest, figured it would last.

14 months old and I have had no problems until today, handwashed a top and put it in to spin, 16 mins came up and counted down but it did nothing, no spin, no movement of the drum.

It bleeped to say the 16 mins was up then a F01 error code came up and all the lights flashed, I couldnt use the off switch to turn it off and the door was locked.

I pulled the plug and switched it on, all the display went back to normal but same happened again.

Help I dont know what to do :( is it easily fixable?

F 01 = a shorted motor triac. Looks like you need a new pcb.
Your machine may not have been the cheapest but all Hotpoint electronics hold much the same quality...questionable at best.
