If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse. You can also visit this website for more troubleshooting details:

Try cleaning out the dirty water pipe. Mine was completely blocked up with scale and soap powder. We used a coat hanger and went from the out side as well. The water now pumps out completely without leaving any left under the drum

Hotpoint ultima wt761 working fine one day, the next just dead as a dodo, no lights, noises,nothing, tried changing fuse, still nothing


These units have a cut out swich, that is thermaly activated, unplug and check the back of the machine, you may find a red reset button, i havent looked at this model, so it could be hidden under a backplate, also is may only have the replacable cutout, you will recognise it by its button sized, silver in colour, with two leads pushed onto its spades.
Warning if it was this then it overheated, so clean all fillters befor operation.

Hotpoint WF860


when the machine was flashing door this was telling you that either the door was not shut properly, try it again, or the interlock switch was faulty, chances are its probably shorted out and blown the circuit board, take care and remove the board to check for signs of blowing, if no signs then i would replace the interlock and start from there, ps i am a retired engineer and have had the same machine myself
