I had the same problem and found that the brushes on the motor had worn out. I replaced them and now all is well. They cost between £30 and £40 to replace and it's a very straight forward job. My only problem was excessive sparking from the new brushes until they bedded in. I simply ran the spin program at 400rpm a few times until the sparking disappeared.

As always, be careful around electrics and if your not sure get a pro to help

When I start the normal 50 button, the top and middle lights blink three times. Then after few seconds the normal 50 and bottom lights start to blink


Start the wash programme
1. Check that when the dishes and cutlery are loaded in the dishwasher
the spray arms are free to rotate.
2. Open the water tap fully.
3. Shut the door.
4. Press the ON/OFF button. ON/OFF button indicator comes on.
5. Press the button for the programme required (see "Programme Table"). The programme indicator lights up. One or two lights will flash in the multi-display. During this time it is possible to reselect the programme. The selected washing programme begins after approx. 6 seconds. The current wash programme stage will always be shown in the multi-display.
3 If the top light and/or the middle light in the multi-display flash after
the programme has started please read the section "What to do, if...".

Hi, I have a Hotpoint wm53w first edition 1200 and the door light does not come on when the door is shut. When I switch it on and set a programme, the amchine sometimes does not start, the door light


Generally the problem lies with a faulty door interlock switch rather than a programmer fault. These are can be purchased easily but don't be fooled into buying cheap alternatives, and if you are a competant diy person no problem to fit.

I have a whirlpool sixth sense washing machine. the door open light constantly flashing although the door is well shut. No programmes work


We had the same issue: the cycle would start then stop, with the door open light coming on. It turned out to be a faulty contact in the door. Took a technician 15 minutes to fix.

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. 


It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Thanks for your question.

Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open


 
Ok, this is the fix:


No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


Why?


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Question.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.


Good Luck!

Doesn't start


Is there power in your wall socket? Does any light on the machine come on? Check your washer-plug. The fuse inside the plug could be defective......
