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.

Have a WDL540 can you explain the symbols on the right hand side of the machine has mins and other symbols. Don't have an instruction book. A wash takes 2 hours at 40 degrees its too long.


Do you mean a Hotpoint Aquarius WDL 540 washer? The wash cycle timing is available in the manual on page 8 of the manual (see link below). A normal-sized cottons wash at 40 degrees C takes about 150 minutes (2 1/5 hours) if you have good water pressure and do not use too much detergent. The coloreds cycle is shorter (just under 90 minutes). The indicator lights on the very right hand side (in a downward slash pattern) give the cycle status information. The top light is wash, and the next one down is rinse. The rest are Spin, Dry and End of Cycle. See page 7 of the manual. The function buttons, below the wash temperature and drying time/humidity selection knobs, are from left to right: Super Wash, Extra Rinse, Mini Load, Slow Spin. These are given on page 9. The dryer dial gives you the choice of selecting a dry time from 40-180 minutes or by humidity. The humidity options are Iron (leaves clothes slightly damp), Hanger (ready to put away) and Cupboard (to dry heavy items like towels to a very dry stage). Note the dryer can't manage as large a load as the washer function does. You may need to split the load after doing the wash.

The manual for the WDL 540 is available on the product page: https://www.hotpoint.co.uk/appliances-1/washer-dryers-3/hotpoint-aquarius-wdl-540-p-.c-washer-dryer-white/F064656/ . The picture of the washer shows the function buttons when you zoom in on the control panel. The direct link to the manual is http://docs.hotpoint.eu/_doc/19512781900_GB.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My Roper washer will run through wash cycle then stops. Nothing will work for 40 minutes then I can put it on rinse then the cycle will complete. What could cause the stopping with nothing working then...


It could be that the machine is trying to heat the water in the drum, but is not able to for some reason. The timer is waiting for the water to reach temperature before advancing. Posssibly a broken heating element. This can happen even on a cold cycle as most machines prefer to heat all soaping water to about 30C regardless of the temperature setting.

Program over running


Could be that the heater element is not working, therby prolonging the wash programme, if it works o/k on a 30 or 40 degree wash, then it is more than likely to be the j heater.
There could be other factors that could cause your prob.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.
