Crease reduction facility won't work

I have a Hotpoint Aquarious WF640 super silent washing machine. I want to use the crease reduction facility. When a wash programme is selected the crease reduction facility does not work. How do I use this option?

Hotpoint aquarius washing machine displaying tESt +won't do anything


Someone has accidentally pressed some buttons and locked you into test mode.
To get out of it you need to press start, the display should go daft. Press start again and the display should settle down. Now press the on/off button and the start button at the same time and hold them down for a few seconds until the display shows d-end or d-off.
Your machine should now work.

Hi : Problem with my Hotpoint WF640, Aquarious


Tools you will need:
2 Adjustable wrench's which opens up to 1"
Flat head screw driver
Philip screwdriver
Pliers

I need clarrification on which connection is leaking after the plumber replaced the new taps, but for now I will presume he replaced the isolator valves on the water lines to you washing machine.

To fix the leaky pipe open one wrench so that it fits snugly around the valve body (you may want to remove the little plastic handle of the valve) set teh other spanner on the nut which holds the pipe into the valve and rotate it in a clockwise direction to tighten, if the leak persists tunr of the water and check:
1. that there is an olive (little brass ring under the nut that the nut can tighten down onto.
2. PTFE tape or putty on the threads of the valve

As for the leak on your machine this leak could be coming from anywere, the usual suspects are:
Door seal
Drum outlet
Pump assembly
Detergent Drawer
Dissconnet the power and have a look for were you see the leak, look out for limescale, rust and other water/detergent marks to help you identify were the leak is comming from. Usually you can access the back of the machine and with a torch should see the pump assembly, you can remove the top of the machine usually 3 philips screws anlong the back side of top cover then it just lifts off.
Aternativly with some help you can lean the machine backwards so that you can look under it. ONLY attempt that if you have help and you can securely hold the machine in place. Lying it down flat might damage the machine if you dont do it slowly and very carfully, if you have the original shipping bolts that came with the machine I would advise installing them to help hold the drum in place.

Hope this helps.

My washing machine won.t spin or turn so could it be the motor as i can,t hear it or would it be the brushes.i,ve got a hotpoint aquarious


I would try the brushes before replacing the motor, or you may have a broken wire. Before attempting any repair unplug the machine from the mains. The brushes on these motors are held in with 2 screws and although it may be a bit awkward they can be changed while the motor is still attached to the machine, but it will mean tilting the appliance so it is resting against something rather than just proping it up .

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03


Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have had aqarius a hotpoint aqarius 1000 wm62p


It has a wide variety of wash programmes for white cotton, colourfast cotton, polyester, non-colourfast cotton, wool blends and wool itself. These standard programmes take from an hour and a quarter to three-quarters of an hour to complete.
There is also a quick wash programme lasting just under half an hour for lightly soiled items and a pre wash soak for heavily soiled items. The machine has four buttons providing extra facilities that can be set independently of the main wash programmes to give you a more comprehensive range of settings.
There is a rinse hold button, which I find extremely useful. When set this holds the clothes in the final rinse water until you are ready to unload the machine. You then release the button, let the machine go through the final spin and then you can unload the machine. It means that you don’t leave damp washing in the machine for the time between the cycle finishing and you unloading the machine, which would make for very creased clothes. There is also a button to depress if you want to use the super rinse facility. This merely increases the volume of water in each rinse so that the clothes are rinsed more fully. I have never used this particular facility, as the ordinary rinses are fine for my needs.
The next button allows for a slow spin. I find that this one is really useful for the items that I need to iron as it means that they don’t come out of the washing machine as creased as they normally would on a faster spin. The only problem with this is of course that the clothes are not as dry as they would otherwise have been. The final button is used to set the economy wash feature. This means that the washing machine’s own heating system is not used and the wash is done with the water at the temperature entering the machine from your hot and cold water tanks. This of course means a cooler wash so it’s only suitable for lightly soiled items.
The door remains locked during the wash programmes so that it cannot be opened accidentally and it can be locked when not in use too if you have small children who might get into mischief! The other big selling point for this particular model is that it gauges the size of the load and uses the correct amount of water needed eliminating the need for the half-wash programme. This also means that it is both water and energy efficient
