I have tried switching the machine off by on / off button but it still flashes, I have also tried to switch it off at the wall and then switching it back on again to release dool lock but this isnt working (there is no water in the machine) Many thanks

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How do I set my hotpoint ultima to English language


turn it OFF (seems like the wrong thing to do but do it anyway) then press and hold the 3 middle buttons under the display panel until you hear a beep - they are labelled reduced creases, mini load and time saver. When you switch it on again you get the language menu. There are 4 buttons either side of the display - the right 2 scroll through the languages and the top left one sets it once you've found the English setting. Guten Tag!

My Hotpoint washing machine wf340 will not complete a wash cycle it just stop then the lights start flashing next to the mini load button + reduced crease button and the on off button pls help


You have a bad printed circuit board (PC board). You will have to replace. I would rate this job a 4 on a hardness scale from 1 to 10. You will need your model number located on the back of the console toward the top. Go to this site and enter your model number. You can order it with a credit card 24/7 http://www.partselect.com/

Please rate this solution if helpful.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WF 250 ON/OFF LIGHTS FLASHING


The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.
