F5 Error on Hotpoint Aqualtis AQGMD149 after home move

Hi I have just moved and once the machine has been plumbed back in, it will not now perform the spin cycle or pump out. I have checked the hose and pump filter for any blockages, but there seem to be none. The drain hose outlet is the required distance above the pump and the hose is not bent or twisted. I noticed a loose red wire that looks like it could be coming from the pump - could this be the problem - perhaps it came loose during the move? If so, where does it attach to? All help much appreciated. Clare

    Doesn't sound like the pump is even trying to kick in, just silence - hence me wondering whether the loose red wire is the connection to the pump? Anyone have a wiring diagram for these things? (I have read the post about manuals, but just wondering...!)

SOURCE: Err20 No drainage

remove the hose from the outlet and lay it as flat as poss into a bowl. fill the machine up and see how much water starts to run out. if there is a lot then there may be a blocked outlet instead. the way to attempt to clear a waste hose out without removing it is to buy a flexi unblocker (like a bendywound wire) from a handyman shop and ram it up the hose. tone.

SOURCE: Bosch WFF1800 - not spinning

HI,

move the kicking plate on the front-bottom of the machine. You will see o circular lid there, turn it on anti-clockvise to open. All of the water blocked will come from there, be careful. Look carefully that there are some objects blocking the water draining. Then turn on the machine on draining programme, the plastic rotor should turn fastly when the machine is on. If it is not running, change the pump motor. If it is running, but machine is not draining again you can understand that there is an objeck stuck on the hose between drum and pump motor. Lay down the machine on its rear facade, you will see a large and black hose between drum and pump motor. When you remove it, you will see that there is something that blocks water running.

Disconnect the drain hoses and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the blockage is in your plumbing and not in the machine.

Hotpoint aqualtis error code F04


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Indesit (Hotpoint Aqualtis, Ariston) 'F04' states 'pressure switch jammed empty, check pressure switch, wiring and module connections'.
It is not that unusual to find it cured by having the connections gently pulled apart and replaced, thus 'cleaning' the contacts back to correct operation ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,

Hi I have an Aqualtis AQGMD149 which is getting noisier and noisier on the spin cycle, the instructions say to check it is level, is there anything else I can check?


Yes you can check the play in the drum bearing, by '"rocking" the inner drum up/down against the outer, there should be very little play. If it moves a lot your drum bearing needs replacing. Also take lid off and physically wobble/apply pressure the outer drum and inspect to make sure the springs and dampers are not allowing excessive movement which would allow the drum to 'crash' around as it tries to spin. A bit like checking car suspension. DISCONNECT MAINS BEFORE REMOVING LID
Easier to do all that than explain!

Hotpoint Aqualtis - F5 was flashing on screen and all the icons ? Can you identify problem as I dont have a manual


Draining blockage. Lift the machine, you'll find a black tube under it. Carefully remove the tube, remove any garment that may have blocked it, clean the white ball thoroughly and pay attention to put it back exactly where it was. Put the parts back where they belong and try again. Good luck!

Says F5 on display, wont empty.


just had F5 blockage warning on hotpoint aqualtis. Removed front panel on the bottom and unscrewed filter, cleaned and replaced. checked all outlet pipe was clear. Laid washing machine on to its back and removed black pipe from pump and checked and finally removed the other end of the pipe that joins to the drum. large ball acts a valve and a missing sock was found in the drum end! replaced all parts and washing machine works a treat! before the f5 warning the machine leaked from the door on a couple of occasions, no problem since and may have been a build up of water finding its only way out.

Hi.
F8 means that heater relay cannot be activated, you need to call an engineer.
Could be expensive, possibly a new control board needed

Aqualtis AQGD 169 S F12 problem Please help :-(


ok, I have just had the 'blocked pump message and after much playing around I have solved it.

Pull the machine out and take the drain out and place in a bucket. Then tilt the machine on its side about 30 to 45 degrees so you can get a hand underneath. At the front there is a black rubber pipe-squeeze this a few times and then run the machine on a pump cycle. Put water in machine (i used a bucket) and repeat. You should get the foul smelling gunk out of the pump. I did this about 4 times and finally the water comes out clean and you should be ok.

Regards and good luck,

Matt
