Have a WDL540 can you explain the symbols on the right hand side of the machine has mins and other symbols. Don't have an instruction book. A wash takes 2 hours at 40 degrees its too long.

Do you mean a Hotpoint Aquarius WDL 540 washer? The wash cycle timing is available in the manual on page 8 of the manual (see link below). A normal-sized cottons wash at 40 degrees C takes about 150 minutes (2 1/5 hours) if you have good water pressure and do not use too much detergent. The coloreds cycle is shorter (just under 90 minutes). The indicator lights on the very right hand side (in a downward slash pattern) give the cycle status information. The top light is wash, and the next one down is rinse. The rest are Spin, Dry and End of Cycle. See page 7 of the manual. The function buttons, below the wash temperature and drying time/humidity selection knobs, are from left to right: Super Wash, Extra Rinse, Mini Load, Slow Spin. These are given on page 9. The dryer dial gives you the choice of selecting a dry time from 40-180 minutes or by humidity. The humidity options are Iron (leaves clothes slightly damp), Hanger (ready to put away) and Cupboard (to dry heavy items like towels to a very dry stage). Note the dryer can't manage as large a load as the washer function does. You may need to split the load after doing the wash.

The manual for the WDL 540 is available on the product page: . The picture of the washer shows the function buttons when you zoom in on the control panel. The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

We have the hotpoint washer/dryer wdl540 but cannot get the dryer to work, all the clothes come out steamed! we'r not overloading the machine and have tried different combinations but still it wont dry -...

The first problem is that you, like myself, bought this piece of trash. The best way to resolve this problem is not sell it on ebay and never even think about buying Hotpoint again.

F13 error during drying cycle

Hi, that indicates that either the fan motor is not working/ blocked or the dryer thermistor (thermostatic sensor) is playing up. Of course, the pcb reads the sensor so it could also be that causing the error.

Water not heating or drying

It is possible that the element has gone, \even after such a short period of time.
If it is only 6 months old, then you need to contact Hotpoint service department, and get it fixed under the guarantee, do not try to fix it yourself,, as you could invalidate the guarantee.
If you look inside your user instruction hand book you will find the telephone number you need to ring to get service.

Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles

This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.

I have a BWD 129 Hotpoint intagrated washer dryer and lights 1 2 and 4 are flashing what does this mean and do I need a new machine it will not do a drying cycle?

Filter blocked, disconnect hose from under sink connection and drain into bucket. Hotpoint does not want you to change filter, contact Service Engineer.
