Question about Hotpoint BWM12 Front Load Washer
My washing machine stops just before getting to "rinse" on dial, then I have a constant lights on both "super wash" and "rinse hold" with door locker light flashing rapidly. I have tried all the obvious to fix it myself; filter cleaning, checked for drain hose blockage, disconnected the appliance for a while to reset and changed to different sets and programs, but nothing seems to work. It gives the same error lights after a few minutes on. Is there any button combination to use to fully reset the machine or anyone knows what the problem might be?

What mode are you starting this machine in ? I know this may sound silly and I'm trying to determe if this is a machine fault code or something else.

SOURCE: Lights flashing & door wont open
I've got a BWM129 which is causing me problems too (the washing is smelly at th eend of the cycle!) - How did you get the filter unit out of its housing, I turns around but doesn't seem to want to come out!
Any help gratefully received

The flashing lights means that an error had been detected.
The machine must be unplugged from main to check the drain hose and the drain pump.
The most common is that the drain pump is clogged with debris and must be unlocked.

Have you checked the filter? even if the pump is o/k, if the filter is blocked, it will not empty..
If filter clear, then you have a more serious problem.
Hope this helps.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
