SOURCE: wf340 hotpoint washer

it will be to do with the pressure switch it may be faulty, but more often than not there is a blockage in the pressure chamber which is located at the bottom of the outer drum, check the chamber and the tube that goes up to the pressure switch to see if they are blocked if they are clear of obstruction then test the pressure switch,to do this unclip the pressure switch from the side of the machine but dont take the wires off once off pull the tube off that goes down to the pressure chamber once off blow in to the nossle on the pressure switch, you should hear it click and then when you release it should click again, if it doet click twice then that is your problem, hope that helps.

SOURCE: indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

SOURCE: the water wont drain or spin wf210 hotpoint

Hi I think your problem is that the filter is blocked, filter is located between drum and pump at the rear, clean that out and that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: Hotpoint WF340 wont drain

I have the HOTPOINT WF540 with the same problem ....So remove the front panel at the front of the machine and you will see the filter plug unscrew anti clockwise, you may find it difficult to unscrew as the filter may be blocked solid with coins ans long objects but once you have started it off wiggle it back and forth with some force till the objects dislodge you may be scared of breacking it but the worst you can do is snap of the plunger which is attached to the filter plug, behind the filter plug its self which will do no real harm and you can put it back in unattached to the filter plug with no worries when your done
you can also drain of the water out of the drum drum from this point but you will need a very slim try to fit under the front of the washer below the filter plug DO NOT totaly remove the plug if the is washing machine is full of water, just release the plug till water slowly trickles out and drain it a bit at a time or you will flood your floor

Hotpoint Aquarius wdl540 wont pump out water


!. Check for water drips/leaks onto the wiring after removing the rear&or the side covers.This may sometimes not be visible to the naked eye -- a torch.

2.Check for loose connections to the pump.If all o k then remove the & test by connecting to the Mains.If it runs switch it off -- do not run it dry for more than a few seconds.If o k then it can only be the main board or timer.

I am fairly confident that the problem is entirely due to the fact that the heater is not working.
You are going to have to wait until the new heater is fitted beore being able to tell if there is another fault.
Hope this helps.

Dishwasher error codes please help


I too had this problen today. Printed off a manual from the Hotpoint website. Very helpful troubleshoot section. Anyway, flashing eco and fast lights and beeping sound indicates 'water feed pipe blocked' You need to check the water inlet connections on your tap.However, when we pulled it out we noticed the blue water inlet pipe was slightly kinked. Straightened this out and hey presto! It works fine again. How this happens when its worked ok for 18 months will never know but still. Try it! hope this was helpful...shewoo
