Hotpoint BDW129 - Lights continually flashing

Hi

My Hotpoint BWD129 lights continually flash preventing the machine to be used for anything. The DRYING light is flashing along with all types.

Ive opened the door and there is still water in the bottom of the drum

I've tried switching it off/on. Left it for several hrs etc.

I'm not familiar with this machine with out a picture, but does it have a control knob that would allow you to advance through the cycles? If so you should be able to go to a spin cycle and empty the unit. How long did you leave it unplugged? Sometimes it requires several minutes to loose its memory. If not you may need to empty the water manually as it may be a fail safe to keep you from getting the floor all wet. Take a bucket and lift the drain hose out of the house drain pipe and lower it into the bucket to empty. It may take several trips. This will not work unless the hose comes out of the bottom of the machine which I think yours does. Once empty try plugging the unit back in and see if that helps. If not the main control processor may have taken a voltage spike and has suffered irreversable damage and will need to be replaced. Please give me more info..

This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.

Check first the thermal fuse.

Test heating element to ensure is not grounded, and staying always on. Test the fan and ventilation system.

If you find no fault in there , then test the timer control board.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WF 250 ON/OFF LIGHTS FLASHING


The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.

I have a BWD 129 Hotpoint intagrated washer dryer and lights 1 2 and 4 are flashing what does this mean and do I need a new machine it will not do a drying cycle?


Filter blocked, disconnect hose from under sink connection and drain into bucket. Hotpoint does not want you to change filter, contact Service Engineer.
