Question about Hotpoint BWM12 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Wash programme won't finish

My washer/dryer won't finish it wash cycle, it can't move on to the rinse and spin cycle. It will let me manually put in on to the rinse after its been turned off for 5mins or so. My machine is about 5yrs old and has been repaired a few times in the past but never with this problem, wondering if it be an expense repair or should I just but a new one.

Thanks in advance.

This happened to my machine, I had to get a repair guy out in the end and he said it was the heating element had gone and that was why the cycle wouldn't move on as it could not heat the water to right temp.
he charged me £60 to repair and for part, still a lot cheaper than hotpoint though. try to get a local guy, hotpoint charge £100 basic.

Whirlpool washer won't rinse or spin w/o manually turning knob

It is most likely that you have a faulty water inlet valve. Some machines have a seperate valve for rinse to flush in a fabric softener I suspect that your detergent flushing valve is faulty.....Good luck Nomess

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
