The access door will not open, it is showing the locked symbol in the window


Your problem is either one of the 2 cases below.

1. Door Locked Indicator...'Keyhole' symbol
The 'Keyhole' symbol will illuminate 2 seconds after you have
pressed the 'START/CANCEL' button and will remain lit
throughout the wash programme.
The 'Keyhole' symbol will be flashing at the end of the
programme to indicate that the door is still locked. When the
symbol goes off you will hear a bleep and the door can then
be opened.

2. If the machine has been child locked, deactivate this feature by pressing and holding in the 'child lock' button for 2 seconds.You will hear a beep and the child lock symbol will go out,allowing you to use the machine normally.

Hi, my ultima machine door wont open and says error code f-05, can you help.


Link to the service website: http://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/hs/pages/content.do?keys=FAQ:ERROR_CODES

From the owner's manual under troubleshooting:
Error code: F05 - Pressure switch jammed on full

The door will not open...
● Has the programme finished? Is ‘End’ lit
in the display window and the ‘Keyhole
symbol deactivated?
The door will not open until the ‘Keyhole
symbol goes out shortly after the
programme has finished.
● There is still water in the machine.
Go through all the points in the next
section,‘The machine will not pump out
water...’
The machine will not pump out the
water...
● Make sure that there is no blockage in
the drain hose and that it is not kinked.
● Is the drain hose installed correctly?
● If you have connected your machine to a
sink waste system, make sure that you
have cut out the membrane from the
under sink drainage system.
(see section: INSTALLING YOUR
MACHINE).
● Ensure that the drainage system,
standpipe or under sink connection is
free from any blockage.
- If any of the above are found to be
the cause of your problem you will need
to run the machine through a spin only
programme.
● If you have chosen ‘Rinse Hold’, the light
will flash until you press the ‘Rinse Hold’
button to continue the programme.

Door stays looked on washing machine


you will need to remove the top cover and get a screwdriver to move the door latch over. it's a job for an engineer really as you have an electrical problem anyway.

Hotpoint Ultima WMA61 loud knocking noise in spin cycle


Hello I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it..

If you need any further advice then dont hesistate to ask....

Error code F-01


Press "end of cycle button" for over 5 seconds, it will unlock. Note: the door should be opened only on hearing a click, or wait for 2 minutes after the wash completes.

I need a rating please, dont forget(!)
