Re: Hotpoint Washing Machine Model # VBXR1060T4WB Filling...
Problem could be the pressure stat which is a switch which detects water level or the pipe leading up to this switch or the air chamber the pipe goes to.
take top off. locate the pressure switch - has a small diameter pipe going to it. remove pipe and fit a similiar one. put on fill and pressurise this pipe by mouth and water fill should stop. if it doesn't, then switch is faulty.
if this is ok, examine carefully the small diameter pipe for splits and blockage. also check the air chamber for build up of gunge

If you have pressed start or pulled out the knob of the cycle unit and nothing happens I would be checking the operation of the water inlet solenoid . If it is not getting power or it is not opening the valve to allow filling to commence there will be no further action of the machine until the tub is filled to the desired level.
From time to time washing machines fill with water on its own.... one of the things that can cause this problem is the drain hose being too low,this allows water to run from the sink back into he drum filling up the machine.To cure simply..
raise the height of the drain hose........
To avoid confusion i`ll give you the senerios.Your washing machine was NOT in use and somehow it just fills with water over the day ,slowly filling up and never stops-this is the inlet valve u/s and water seeps,drip drip until the machine leaks-replace valve only answer.Or ,the machine is in use and water doesn`t stop filling up either on wash or rinses-can be valve not shutting off because valve is faulty,similar to above,this is rare but not unknown,or much more likely the air trap/filter is blocked up which is not telling the pressure switch to cut the power to the valve with the correct amount of water.IF the filter/air trap-a rubber hose with a large hose clip and a white looking chamber sprouting from the hoses r/h/side- is at the rear of the machine(to the right of the motor looking from the rear of the machine) this is where you should look first ,if your filter is at the front (r/h/s) i don`t know the answer to this part of the question.
Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly. In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.
hi as your machine got a non return valve on it to stop water from getting into your machine via waste pipe. worst case is call indesit as i am sure you now get 5 years parts g/tee as indesit is now part of hotpoint still cheaper than another machine hope this helps
You may have a problem with the pressure dome hose (has a cut or kink in it) or it may be a problem with the main control board. Sometimes that small hose inside the machine can get a cut or come loose. That sends pressure to the board and its valve to let the machine know that it has the right amount of water in it. If it has a hole or is blocked, that signal wont ever come on, and you have overfilling.
