Hi charlie99 Peace,
ngafm At your service!

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT.


If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


Bless You ngafm

Heating eliment or PCB, is this when doing a prewash? or a normal wash excluding pre wash?
if you can manualy pump out and manualy rinse and spin, my guess is heating eliment is broke £20-£30

SOURCE: i got the reduced creases

(same again!) Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine's fault lights coding BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

The mini load and reduced creases light flash when washing has finished, but its as though it hasn't been spun properly


I should check the filter if I were you.
Remove lower rear panel of washer, remove large black hose on bottom of drum, remove and clean filter inside hose.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wf540 stopping on a rinse and spin and


check pump/filter/outlet hose for blockages. if ok, check pressure switch (disc shaped item at top of machine with 4? wires and a tube) by blowing into it gently - should hear clicks, then blow into tube to pressure chamber - should be clear.

Reduce crease and mini load lights flashing on hotpoint wf541g. had pump failier and have replace with new on but still not pumping water out.


I have encountered a similar problem. The following lights were flashing on and off:

  • On/Off.
  • Reduced creases.
  • Mini Load.
I also found that previously one of the 'lifters' inside the drum had broken off and someone had tried to put it back in place and continued to use the washing machine. After a short period of time the above mentioned flashing lights began.

I first suspected the pump, but this was fine. I then disconnected the hose which connects the hole from the drum to the pump and I found a child's sock blocking the hose. I removed the obstruction, put it back together and the machine worked perfectly. I also replaced the lifter (apparently these break quite often) and the machine has been working perfectly ever since that day.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WF 250 ON/OFF LIGHTS FLASHING


The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.
