Hotpoint WD440 Wash/Dry door lock (button 1) flashing?

Hi, I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WD440 washer dryer which when I select the wash cycle the wash button (#2) will light up and the machine will make the sound that the door is locked but I don't get the door lock button (#1) light up, the machine will not start washing and the door lock button (#1) starts to flash, can anybody please advise what the problem is and if I can fix it myself? Kind regards, Susan

The Fault was faulty wirers to the motor which an engineer cut and rejoined them using electrical clips not leaving any wires exposed in anyway, was repairable without striping the machine down (tilting it and working on it from the bottom - please remember to turn the power off first !!), overall took about 30 mins to sort. Hope this helps anyone else with the same fault.

This was an excellent fix. Turned the machine on its back. There are two wires connected by metal connectors to the motor. They were both loose. I slid them off the connection, squeezed metal crimps with pliers and reconnected.
One symptom was a flashing door lock light if that helps. The machine would not do anything, fill, motor, empty. Working fine now. Thanks Susan!!
