Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
A hoptpoint BWD129 shows wash and rinse LEDs on solid when the door is closed. The door also locks as soon as it's closed and the power is applied. However the drain pump does not run. None of the controls have any effect on the machine. The machine has been emptied of water. The drain pump impeller rotates freely and a resistance check of the motor is not open circuit. The water level switch appears to operate OK (I've taken it off and blown into it and seen a circuit made). Is there any way to reset the machine or has the controller gone faulty? One strange thing I found was a plastic ball in the drain sump, but it looked like it belonged there (intended to stop the drain pump sucking hot air out of the machine during drying perhaps?)
Hi Tom, im having the same problem you mentioned. what resistor did you use to prove this?

Problem was caused by a faulty water temperature sensor. The clue was that the owner reported increasingly hot washes, then the machine stuck at rinse. A test resistor replacing the sensor allowed the cycle to finish. A replacement sensor is on order.
