Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
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.
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?
tnx 4 using fixya,
