Question about Washing Machines
What happens is that when I try to start a cycle the on/off light starts to flash along with the mini load light and the rinse hold light. The machine will not stop draining water hereby water is also coming in non stop. I have cleaned out the filter and checked all the hoses for blockages. Please can you try and help me with this as I hardly have any clothes left lol.
Thanks a lot I have a Hotpoint WF503 and mine is doing the exact same thing. I'd love some help if anyone knows a solution. :)
The issue you have is actually one i have come across on several occasions, these models have a couple of weaknesses in the electronics, it the door latch fails then it can feed voltage back into the electronics and cause all sorts of odd issues, unfortunately it's a matter of replacing the electronic controller and then see what else if faulty, in most cases it's cheaper to replace the machine.

Hiya Barry, I have the same machine and for the last 3 days have had the exact same problem...mini load and reduced crease as well as power light flash right when it comes to drain...?
I have scratched my head and done lots and lots of research, reckon I could design and build my own washer now lol, anyway, I fitted a new pump and ran it, thinking this is it sorted, went out and got a call from our lass...doing it again.
Right, gonna have to get me hands dirty...I removed the drain hose (Ignore the pump for a second, I'm talking about the grey hose that goes from the pump to the sink) from the sink and poked my fingers as far as they would go...debris, I then removed it from the other end (Pump) so I had a long hose in my hands, not attached to anything at either end....cleared it and again, loads of debris (Fluff, plastic etc) and put it all back together...turned the old fella back on and running a wash right now as we speak...happily spinning round at 1400rpm and throwing gallons of water down the sink...I would consider it fixed.
So I can most definately tell you that you have a blockage somewhere mate, I'd get your hands in the toolbox and pull that pipe off, doesn't require any level of experience, just the ability to put things back as you found them...
Hope that helps

Had exactly the same last week - Jan 09 - and had to call out Hotpoint engineer - £99.98 all inclusive of parts - it was the main controller board, so thats under guarantee for another 12 months. all working and spinning as should be and only took around 30mins.GS :)

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
