Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
The word test appers on digital read out machine works but not correctly
The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the stat if the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition.
This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.
Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Hotpoint washing machine shows test in display
Symptoms: Hotpoint washing machine just keeps running on its own and won't accept a program
This is caused when the demo mode is accidentally switched on. Instead of using a combination of two keys that need two hands to press, Some Hotpoint washing machines use two buttons next to each other to put the washing machine into demo mode. Even a leg leaning against the start and cancel buttons while reaching over the washing machine can turn on the demo (test) mode. To turn it off and get the washing machine working again, switch the washing machine on, then press and hold the centre line between the start and cancel buttons so that you are pressing them both in simultaneously. After a few moments you should see "d_OFF"
Sometimes this works first time. Sometimes it needs repeated attempts. If you are having trouble, try waiting until it's finished the spin section of the demo and catch it before it starts again
