Hotpoint BWD129 door light flashing with no error lights

Hi,

I have a BWD129 and the door lock light is flashing, the machine won't start.

There are no other lights flashing. I've checked the drainage, emptied out the filter (nothing in it) but can't get the machine to start.

As soon as I switch the machine on, the light flashes. Closing the door the latch is secure and feels right. But pressing start, the lock light just flashes at me. I can select options like dry, quick wash, etc etc, but it just won't start the program. The lock light just blinks back at me (frustratingly).

I had a similar issue before and blowing down the drainage pipe with the filter out seemed to resolve the problem, but this time that's not fixing it.

Any suggestions?

I would expect a door lock light to stop flashing when the door is closed properly and the door lock activates. Then the machine will start. If the door lock light remains flashing then there's a possibility the door lock mechanism isn't working or has a connection fault somewhere.
