HOTPOINT BWD129 CAN'T GET IT TO TURN BACK ON WHEN IT FAILED HALF WAY THROUGH A HOT WASH

I was washing my dog bed using a hot wash and the machine seemed REALLY hot, it had seemingly finished too. I had trouble opening the door, so turned off at mains. When I opened the door, SOOOOOOOOOO much steam came out, unbelievable. The dog bed is soaking wet and there's water in the drum still. Each time I turn it back on at the mains the on button and drying light comes on, but then all lights go off after a few seconds.

Help!!!!!!!!

This happens to me all the time. If I wash any hotter than 60 degrees is stops mid wash and the drying light comes on and when I open the door the items inside are boiling hot with loads of steam and are soaking wet and soapy. It did it to me again last night and 17 hours later it's still not working but the delay start and super wash (top 2) lights are now fixed on and I can't reset the machine at all. I've also noticed on the rare occasion that I dry things in this machine that there is no control if the heat, everything is just mega hot dry - might this also be something to do with it. The machine has been like this now for coming on 3 years and I am unable to wash any hotter than 40 degrees without the machine breaking down. It normally sorts itself out if I leave it off overnight but not this time. It's never been the same since the drum was replaced but every time the hot point repair men come out they can never find a fault. I keep telling them it's like the steam is getting into the electrics but they won't have it. Please help. Thanks.

Check if you splash a lot of water specially at the center of the unit. there is this water sensor that would turn it off once this sensor is wet.

do you have any error codes?

Hotpoint WT 960G Smell from the machine when in use.


Usually the smell is caused by bacteria from the soiled water when washing is done on a cool wash. I have told customers before that to clear the smell you need to do several hot washes maybe using your white so as not to fade or run colours and in time the bacteria will clear and smell will also.

Due to a leak i have no hot water supply to the washer. I still have cold water supply can i still use the machine?


Yes provided that the wash required is not for full sterile condition you can have the cold wash using a good detergent.
Choose the appropriate program that does not have the HOT wash and it will progress the cycle.

Washing machine stopped working and smells like burt rubber


Sorry about that I did not notice the word "Belt" in the paragraph. The belt may be slipping. Even though it looks fine it may not be. You can normally tell if you're able to access the belt right after running it, turn off the washer and unplug it. Feel the belt or the idler pulley it's attached to. Quickly though because it may be very hot! If it is then chances are that you need a new belt. Overloading a washer from time to time can wear out the portion of the belt that contacts the pulley causing it to slip.

Cant find filter on my hotpoint Ultima


Good luck. All modern washers that I know dont have the filter you need. If a clean out is needed you will have to clean out the pump.

Hotpoint BWD129 stuck in rinse phase


Problem was caused by a faulty water temperature sensor. The clue was that the owner reported increasingly hot washes, then the machine stuck at rinse. A test resistor replacing the sensor allowed the cycle to finish. A replacement sensor is on order.

Hotpoint BWD129 - Wash temperature too high


Yes you are right!
I did not mention the sensor!
If what you tell me is accurate, the sensor is the next logical part and perhaps the only one left!
I think this is it. As long as the water valve is okay!

Hotpoint washing machine model aquarius+1200 spin wf620


F03 indicates an open or short circuit thermistor, this is associated with heater element, so probably the water is not getting hot.
You need to check the heater and thermistor unit. access is from the rear.
Hope this helps.
Plz leave feedback

Hot washes won't start


check the hot water supply is switched on- it sounds like the valve is energising but no water is gettin through !! also check for hot water blockages. easy test is to reverse the water pipes at the back of the machine to test. tony.
