Hi, i have the same machine..i have a feeling it does this annually to make you call an engineer. to reset it do this; hold the 'start' button until all lights display, then press 'start' again. hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off. it doesnt always work 1st time so keep trying, good luck x

This problem occurs when you acidently lean on the start and on/off buttons at the same time,it is not a programing fault that is designed to occur yearly.
but the listed solves do work.

Just had the same problem as the above with "test" programme problem.
I've just tried the above solution and it works - absolutely brilliant.Thank you so much. Hotpoint had quoted me £89 on-off call out fee.

SOURCE: i have a hotpoint ultima

SomeHotpoint's are designed to go into test mode when the start button and the on/off button are pressed at the same time. If you are stuck in Test mode, simply hold the start button down until it comes out of test mode, then hold both the start buttons and the on/off button down until you see 'D:end' (or similar message). Now try a normal wash programme again and hopefully it should be fine. If it goes into test mode by itself, then it may be an indication that there is a real fault, or a faulty programmer board. hope this helps.

Washing machine fills with water but then won't wash, spin or drain


Hi Claire if your beko washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below

Bosch wfl2000 machine works on every cycle apart from spin, washes drains etc but wont spin. Cheched brushes and removed and had motor tested all ok, belt fine, any ideas- Controller!!


are you sure its heating the water as it will not complete the wash cycle if the heater has failed, hence not getting to the spin cycle. try testing heater or see if water is warm coming out or glass warms up

Washer wont drain. fills with water. goes through wash cycle but wont drain. once it gets to the spin cycle, it spins for a few seconds and then stops and rinse light comes back on.

Zanussi washing machine wont spin


check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.
