Hotpoint first edition washing machine

I have started having problems with two cycles on my machine. When using the silks programme and the quick wash cycle the machine pauses when on the rinse and the lights on the front of the machine start to flash, this doesnt happen on every use but it is becoming more frequent, usually pressing the start button remedies this, but the last time this happened the machine just kept pausing and the lights kept flashing, so I had to choose a rinse cycle to complete the programme. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: stuck in wash cycle

check if heating by putting on as hot wash and feeling the door. if no heat, check continuity thro the heater - modern heaters have a non-resettable cut-out in them which can cause problems. no heat then no program advance

this sounds like cold water supply not getting to the machine, test the supply from the house is working, is the machine buzzing slightly when it should be filling, if so the fault is the house supply to the washer, if the supply to the washer is fine, check the cold water solenoid for open circuit, thats about all it could be, if it worked fine before, if i have helped rate me please

Suggestion: Plug off the wall first. Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Check out user's manual. Good luck. Also check if your inlet into the machine is not clogged.

whare the option buttons are if you number them 1 to 5 from top to bottom if led 2 and 4 are flaching this is a time out draining and you will need to check your waste hose for twists traps and kinks also check Filter if there is a user servicable one on the applionce and check plumbing. This is a comman fault and if you get hotpoint out to it even if it is only a day old they will charge for the call out as it is classed as user error or faulty instalation this works on all WF,WD & WT modles with 5 option buttons on the left habnd side the applionces with digital displays will show F-05 insted but it all means the same

SOURCE: Door Lock LED flashing

The solution from testy helped me but I decided to change it.

I cut the plastic latch away from the end of the interlock,just the little bar that holds the door closed.This means that the lock position doesn't affect the door.

I then used the little piece of plastic to act as 2 packing pieces to hold the lock half closed. This works fine.

Don't push the lock fully closed or it doesn't work

Tip

Save on running costs.


Our clothes rarely get dirty, just need freshening really, and I got sick and tired of waiting almost 2 hours for the programme to stop.

I checked the times of different settings and found that programme J... silks.... only takes around 1 hour, washes at a higher water level and is around 40 degrees.

Now I never use any other programme. Dont over load your machine, dont put too many towels in as this programme is designed for 3kg, so check the weights till you are used to how your drum looks with different types of clothes etc.

We rarely need a heavy wash, and if I do I feel its better to do 2 light washes than do 1 protracted wash in the same water.

Im saving fuel and getting my washing done in half the time too.

Hotpoint fault?


Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

The 3 buttons


button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.
