Have tried this prior to contact this wep service. Problem still exists, have even tried on a spin with an empty drum. The same warning lights come on.

Would appreciate any other advice.

Dear penzance,
Welcome to fixya.com
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, Wash enhance light keeps flashing on Hotpoint WT540 Aquarius 1400, have emptied pump filter and cleaned interior.

It keeps coming back, have switched off

Try this method to reset your system as we sometimes do with our computer when it reacts strangely.

As with an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Let me know how it works out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Huuum.
How old is the appliance?

Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

How can I unscrew the drain outlet at the bottom front of my Hotpoint WT540? Our machine has completed a wash and drained, but isn't spinning. The door light flashes when I try and run a spin. I decided to...


Keep trying to unscrew it, as it should come right out for cleaning. A little water will come out too so put a small tray under the machine first.

Look at my other solutions, as for DOOR light flashing.

Water will not drain - rinse hold/mini load lights flashing


You might have to take the pump off and clean out the debris in the line theres probably lint, change and other things in the line. Take the lines off and run a piece of wire through the lines to make sure their clear.

Hotpoint wt540 can't get filter out


It is possible you have got something stuck in filter, and this is what is stopping it coming out, you are turning it the right way, you will just have to stick with it, and keep trying to ease it out.
Keep trying to eaes it in and out, and you should be able to remove it eventually.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.
