Can anyone explain a problem in transformer with dots?

  • \$\begingroup\$ A good question usually needs a bit more background info. I was about to edit your question because I thought you asked about what the dots mean, but that's covered already, as @PeterJ has pointed out. \$\endgroup\$

It's not a problem, it's a convention. The dots show the phase relationship of the voltages. The AC swings positive and negative so coils could be in phase or out of phase. The dot ends are all in phase.
