Dear penzance,
Welcome to fixya.com
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, Wash enhance light keeps flashing on Hotpoint WT540 Aquarius 1400, have emptied pump filter and cleaned interior.

It keeps coming back, have switched off

Try this method to reset your system as we sometimes do with our computer when it reacts strangely.

As with an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Let me know how it works out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Huuum.
How old is the appliance?

Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

SOURCE: error code F-08

Hi,

The meaning of F08 is that the heater relay is stuck or cannot be activated for some reason, this has the effect of stopping the water heater from working.
In order to resolve this the only thing you can do is to test the heater, and see if it is o/k.,if it is , then you there is not much else you can do, except call an engineer.
Hoep this resolves your issue. God Bless.

SOURCE: I have a hotpoint ulitma washing machine that is

Error code E15 means pump time out, that it is to say the water is not pumping out enough in the time alloted by the control module.
There must be some kind of blockage or restriction in the pump or the outlet hose, so you need to check these.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine "clean pump" error light.

take top off machine. look down right side and you will see a disc about 50 mm in diameter, attached to this is a small flexible rubber pipe, take this off at the disc and blow through it,( you will need some type of pipe to connect to the rubber pipe).this worked for me with the very same problem.

SOURCE: HE2 Plus front load washer keeps showing F21 error

Check for the drain hoses(both sides of the pump) and check for a blockage,then check the pump for blockage,there should be 4 impellers on this pump and they can get broken off by coins and debris. This solution will fix your problem.

My hotpoint ultima is not heating, the drum spins. could you advise what the problem is


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For most Hotpoint (and other named) models there is a common problem often indicated by 'F08' which decodes as 'heater relay (possibly) stuck'. 'Check power supply connections to the heater, wiring and module (i.e. PCB) connections' (apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause).

So- if you are not electrically confident and competent yourself, which you may be, you need to employ the skills of a partner, friend or service engineer ;-0)
Sorry we cannot be of more help!
Good luck, John C

My Hotpoint wdm73 won't drain. how do I fix it?


  1. You will need to gain access to the drain pump through the bottom of the Washing machine. Remove the Drain hoses from the pump, clear any debris, change, etc. If it is clear, or the error continues after clearing, replace the drain pump.
  2. If you replace the drain pump and it still won't drain, you will need a new Control Board.

Go to do a programme but f10 keeps flashing and does not dry closhes cleaned filter hotpoint ultima


Hello there,
this f10 error code means problem with thermostat or heating element. What you need to do is check both of them for continuity.this will require a multimeter. If you have one set it to OHMS range and take off one wire off each stat and then test for continuity.
If you do not have a multimeter you may want to call a professional to come and do it. Or if you do have one and you are doing it yourself it is more often that it is the thermostat not the element they rarely go on this unit.
You can always refer to your owners manual and if you don't have it anymore or lost it here is a link to help you with that.

Hi, my hotpoint wdm73 washer dryer keeps tripping


Remove the top cover, and unplug the motor, and try again, if it still trips, then disconnect the heater element.
If it still trips, then I recommend you all an engineer.

Hotpoint WDM 73 keeps tripping ringmain when powered on


I suspect that the problem is probably being caused by a fault on the dryer element or thermostat.
Remove the top cover and disconnect the heater, and see what happens..
If it does not trip, then prob is the dryer element or stat.
Hope this helps.

The thermostat has gone on my hotpoint cd00 tumble dryer and I need to replace it, I have ordered a new one, the only problem is I cant seem to remove the old one. Please can anybody help. Thanks, Kate.


Depends on which thermostat you are talking about, as there is more than one thermostat.
2 thermostats are located on the heater element itself, located at bottom rear of dryer, if you cannot see the stats, then you need to remove the heater, and they are located behind the element, be careful, as it is very easy to break the element supports, and then you will need a new heater.
Trust this helps solve your problem, And GOOD LUCK.

Location of element


Hi, Hotpoint FDW60 got a concealled element.
You need to unplug and disconnect the dw, lay it flat on its back and remove the bottom tray (depending on the final letter for your model (FDW60G, FDW60P, FDW60T) you might need to remove the side panels and kickboard to release the bottom tray). Carefull with the floater switch. You should be able to locate the element straight away. Replace it and reverse the process.
Cheers

Hotpoint FDW60 heater replacement


The heater is the black element at the bottom of the tub. you can see it when you open the door, there are 2 wires attached to it under the dishwasher along with 2 nuts and some rubber washers to keep it from leaking, It is a simple job to replace. Remove the wires undo the the nuts that hold it to the tub, and there may be some brackets inside the dishwasher that secure it in place. remove the element and replace it. Install in the reverse order you took it apart.
