Hello john walker24
Welcome

You said, you have a Hotpoint Ultima 1200 Washier dryer model WD71s and keep getting an E30 error code after it fills with water.
Any idea what the problem is?

This is what Hotpoint tells us!
E30 = A motor drive problem has occurred.Try running the programme again.
If the problem persists call for a Service Engineer.

BUT, I will tell you to unplug the appliance for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system and solves the error code.
Sometimes it is only a glitch and you can reboot and be alright if there is really no mechanical failure!!
Let me know how it goes?
Huuum,
Please remember to leave a rating!
Thank You.
Waiting for your response!

On inspection (remove the top lid - three screws, instructions on rear of machine) the rotation motor brushes were worn and sparking. They needed replacement! Working on that one soon...

    I dismantled the 'rotation motor' ( the one that operates through a belt drive TO THE DRUM) and found the brushes worn - (One brush friction polished, one brush pitted and dull) and the motor unserviceable because of this! I have removed the brush-holders and am presently looking for replacement brushes. The brush-holder assemblies are plastic, with brass-holders for the brushes.I am presently sourcing replacements. Stay Tuned....

Getting an error messsage on my hotpoint ultima wm72 code is e30


It means motor problem, see below
It could be as simple as the motor requiring new brushes which can be bought quite cheaply on ebay or as complicated as the pcb motor controller being faulty. The brushes are however easily checked

E30 error message what does it mean, Cheers, Dave


Hello,
E30 can be a faulty pressure switch,Heating element earth fault or the main P.C.B.(Programmer).Does the machine fill with water then empty.
Most common fault is the heating element,once this is replaced it should cure the fault.
