Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
I have a Hotpoint WD860 WASHING MACHINE. It has been working great until after we used the drier. The next day we tried a wash cycle, it started to cold fill for about 10 seconds then stopped filling and 2 minutes later error code H20 with the TAP came up and the program just stopped. OK I know its saying no water. I can cancel the progs ok and restart but each one stops on cold fill. Have checked hose filters etc both ends and taps..all clean. Have blown thro water pressure tube...ok. Voltage on wires to cold inlet valve is 240v from PCB , the other 3 valves only have 90v is this right? Its really driving me and the missus nuts so can anyone tell me what the trouble is please?
The fact that you have 240V to the valve does not prove that the valve is o/k. Determine which is the live wire, and leave connected to valve coil.
You need to remove the neutral wire from the valve, and test with your meter that as well as having 240V going in, you have 240V coming out on the other terminal, if you have not , then you have a faulty valve..Simply replace it.
I assume that you have a neutral feed to the valve, because if you have not, then the fault is probably in the pcb board.
The coils on these valves often go open circuit.
Plz rate my solution.
