ERROR H20 STOPS PROGRAM DUE TO LIMITED WATER...WHAT CAN I DO?

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.
Thanks.

Hi I have a Hotpoint WD860 washing machine, when trying to start to select a program, the machine won't start, it just counts down rather than starting the whole program itseslf. When I tried to end t


First all all unplug it for 2 mins to clear error code. That error relates to heater or pcb fault. Check the wires on the heater then pcb make sure they are tight. Give the relays a tap on the pcb it could be stuck. Pcb is module / circuit board etc. Found at the back in the corner with a White cover over it. Remove rear cover to see. Relays are on the pcb.

Check tube to water pressure switch. The wall of the rubber tube on my machine had worn through due to friction. Taped it up to make sure this was the problem. No H2O code and machine working!

H20 is showing on the display screen of my hotpoint washing machine. I'm aware this means water but I'm wondering why this is displayed?


Possible that there is no INLET pressure or water flow to the machine, check the inlet filter and valve, check for good flow to the valve if the hose is disconnected. If not it needs to be checked if the panel board is showing error due to memory fault..

Error code


H20 indicates incoming water supply problem.
Check that the water is fully turned on.
Check the inlet hose/s for kinks or restriction.
Make sure there is a good pressure of water to washer.

Thankyou..

H20 error


Hello

I used to get this when i lived with my mum & dad and i can honestly say that it was the water pressure with this machine only a small drop in pressure makes the H20 error code appear you can always add additional water when it comes on so that the cycle can continue. You could find out from your water board if the drop in pressure is a leak in your area?

I hope this helps i had to persist with this problem for 18 months untill a leak around the corner was eventually found and fixed.

Regards
Wendy

Flashing f - 05


Error f05 is a problem with the pressure system usually caused by a blockage. These are most commonly found in the pipe which is attached to the bottom of the drum.
Take off the access plate at the back of your machine and you can see it is secured by a large jubilee type clip.
Please be aware that there will be water in this pipe.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.
