E42- Fault in tachimetric generator circuit
-Main PCB (tachimetric generator sensing circuit)
you might have to replace the main PCB also need to work on the also means that the door remains locked. try perssing the start and pause button simultaneously for 5 secs and see if the error goes off.

Unplug machine from power, or cut power by tripping the circuit breaker. Wait 10 minutes then connect it back, this to reset the panel.

Ensure that the door lock is closing, not stuck.

Unsure water mis now coming through the water supply.

E 42 I think to remember is door lock, but from description it lets think to a fault related to water supply (inlet valve etc.).

    E42 is not listed as a valid hotpoint error code(E42 was door lock on Zanussi, therefore this can indicate a defective control assembly.

    The digital control board must be tested by a technician , and eventually replaced.

    Here is hotpoint code list, do first what suggested on my previous comment. If that does not work, call Hotpoint using the number listed on use and care manual, or click contact us for an explanation,
    and ask to confirm that E42 can be digital board error.

    If the error is not E42, but a different code , like F12, then give me the right code.

Inlet water valve error when the door is opened and closed during a washing cycle

If water is siphoning out, either drain hose is too far down pipe or there is an airtight seal where drain hose goes into pipe.

My washing machine keeps flashing e10 what is the problem

E10 - not filling make sure the water is turned fully on and pipes are not frozen if in garage. when you have checked everything then turn off machine at control panel and then unplug it for 5 mins then plug back in turn on and start cycle it should start to fill. hope this helped.

this error comes if waste water pipe jammed or blocked
2. WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.
5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
check the drain pipe that comes out the back of your machine
please message me back if this does not solve your appliance situation and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped Thanks again

Hotpoint qualtis washing machine spin display showing H20 and won't start. model AQXXF 149PM

H20 means a problem with the water inlet supply.
Check the inlet hose/s for a kink or restriction, make sure it is turned on fully at the supply..
If it is cold fill only, could be a frozen pipe.
Hope this helps.
