Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

Odd messages appearing on lcd screen and not collecting water

My washing machine has been temperamental lately, sometimes working and sometimes showing a message on the lcd screen as door open or test. When the door open message comes up, the door is definitely closed and nothing happens. However, when the test message is showing, the machine spins with no water. It doesn't draw water at all. Just spins and turns dry. The water is definitely turned on.

The door open message was the first to come up and then, after a few weeks of not using the machine, I tried it again and it put itself right, worked for 2 weeks and now is showing the test message.

Can you help please? Any suggestions?

Only have boiling hot water filling up in my top loader washing machine

Hello there ..... I will take the presumption the machine has been working okay for a while - if this was the case then you will require a replacement inlet valve for the cold water.

I do however find it extremely odd for a late model machine to do this as the safety parameters will not allow the machine to fill with hot water only - in all cases the cold will always fill "FIRST" followed by the hot water - it should have gone out on a fault code 48 or 49.

I will also assume you have checked the inlets for debris restricting the filters and the cold water inlet.

The only other option is to have the valve replaced.

We clean the filter after every wash but we still get black & white bits on the washing wa have cleaned the waste pipe, pump filter at the back is always clean .model no sw75usp can you help under...

Hi bob, have you tried cleaning the dispencer drawer that supplys the detergent to the tub? in some cases over time the detergent holder can collects small amounts of powder that can dry out and stick to the walls of the holder and when the machine is in its spinning stage can sometimes vibrate the dry powder in turn cause the powder to enter the tub also there can be a huge build up of liquid detergent like softners that can form a hard black residue in the holder in turn causing the clothes to collect black paticles. If all is ok then you could try applying a hot wash cycle without any clothes in the tub to flush the bowl from any contaminents, thumbs up if this helps thanks.

My ge profile harmony washing machine has a message that says "a problem has been detected with this unit."

Washers - Harmony Washer Error Message or Code
The Harmony washer electronics can automatically determine if problems exist with the machine. Sometimes an error code can also be present because of things the machine cannot control: like changes in house voltage, water pressure, or temperature.

"A problem has been detected with this unit" will be displayed on the screen.

The most common solution for this message is to turn the machine OFF and then ON. However, this message will sometimes cause the control to stop the machine from working. With this type of error, the control panel will need to be reset. The following steps will allow you to reset your control.


1. Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT.
2. Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in.
3. Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.

GOOD LUCK. TIMOTHY DO 714-334-1998

Lately, our fax has not been working and the message 'Check/remove original and press stop key' will appear on the LCD screen. Even after removing the original or clearing any paper, the LCD screen...

Thre is a "finger" sensor on the input tray. It is stuck in the "down" position. The fax machine falsly senses paper on the sensor.
Use compressed air (from a can) to clean the sensor and "work" it to free it. Do not lubricate it (no WD40 or duct tape, please)...

I have a larder fridge that seems to collect too much water in the tray at the back, it seems to be temperamental with cooling. It only works part time. How affected are they by not being completely level?...

this water should be evaporated by the motor heat.however, i have found with larger larder fridges of several makes that too much water is formed for it all to go.
worth while checking the door seals as well as if seal is leaking, more ice forms on the evaporator and hence more water

Message retrive

Sometimes with these units the buttons on the base go bad but the whole system still works. Try picking up the handset and accessing your messages remotely by pressing Menu, and then pressing Select which will appear as an LCD button option on your LCD Screen
