My hotpoint ultima extra washing machine says e15 check outgoing pipes i have cleaned the pipe out and is washing to a certain point then e15 shows and starts to beep continuously


what e15 indicate means an error code that there have been an over flow of water from the drum over to the panel or the wire that suppl power to the screen .

what you will have to do to fix up this problem from the screen is to unscrew the screws with screw driver care then trace the wire ,that is the power supply down to the panel and also to the screen clean up all forms of liquid around the wires and also the panel carefully . then couple it back with care to is position with this the problem is solve.

thank you.

I have a Hotpoint Ultima 1200 - WM75. At the end

Check the filter and the actual pump itself for blockage.unless you have already done so, also pump itself could be faulty.

Hoptopint wd72 - E15 and wont take water in

Hi, - fixed this myself. Problem was a blocked pipe from front of drum to pressure switch. - The machine was fooled in to thinking it had water in when it hadnt! - hence the error 15. that was also why it would not fill. - im guessing the heater blew because it was on with no water to keep it cool!

Hotpoint ultima wf840 drum jammed display saying error code f 02 can any 1 help

Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Undo and remove the wide tapering pipe from the bottom of the drum to the pump. Inside you will find a non return ball valve, clean this and your problem should be solved

E15 code on display of Hotpoint ultima extra WD72.

E15 means that it is not draining fast enough. As well as checking the outlet pipes, check the filter leading to the pump. Disconnect the power and pipe. If possible take outside because there will be a residual amount of water. Remove the back panel, then disconnect the locking rings holding the tubes on. Your main target should be the big downflow rubber tube from the drum, in here is a plastic filter. In mine I found a child's sock... plus slime. Problem solved.

Error 15 on a Hotpoint WM72 Washing Machine

The problem is your pump or filter is blocked,
Remove rear cover of washer, and remove large black hose from tub, remove and clean filter inside hose, check for a blockage in pump, refit filter and hose, and it should now be o/k.
Please rate my solution.

Error code f5

I think you mean error F05 for a Hotpoint washer.
it means the pressure switch is jammed on full, check pump is working o/k and if there is a filter, remove and clean it, see user instructions..
If still no joy, then you will have to call an engineer..
Plz rate this solution.

Error code on display panel

F-12 is a drain problem.

Check if the drain hose is free, if cycle stops and gives you f12 without draining the water, there is a problem with the drain system.

The Hotpoint should have a removable paner at the back on the lower side. The panel gives access to the pump. If cleaning the drain hose does not solve the problem, the pump must be removed and cleaned or replaced.The repair should be done by a technician.

Outlet Pipe

Your machine has detected a problem with draining. The place to check is the filter located at rear of machine.To access it remove plate at bottom rear of machine & you will see a black pipe hanging vertically from the drum secured by a spring clip.The filter is in this pipe. If this is clear take off other end & check pump is not obstructed.Be aware that there will be water in these pipes so may be wise to take machine outside.Let me know if problem persists.
