Question about Washing Machines

The labelling (letters) has worn off the front of the machine e.g. half load etc so don't know which button to press to make the machine more eco friendly (half load) etc. The machine is a Hotpoint Aquarius WF530. Need to see which button does what. Thanks.

It appears your selector dial print 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.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

My moms front loader is a frigidaire gallery series. when she tries to start a load itll bring in a lil water and then just stop. don't understand why it is doing that


Turn off the machine then unplug it for at least 5 minutes and plug it back. Turn on the washer then press any button and wait for 5 seconds. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL buttons simultaneously and the most recent error code will appear on the display as an "E" followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator lights will flash. Post back the error code to determine the problem and necessary actions to be undertaken in order to address it.

What is the one button use for


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I have checked the manufacturers workshop manual and the user manual but there is no mention of a ‘One button’ for this model so I would give an educated guess and say it is a reduced load button that uses less water and takes less time to complete the wash, on most machines it is a ‘Half load button’. If you don’t have a user manual download one from Hotpoint website

I would like to know what the buttons on the front of the machine are and also is it normal for these machines not to fill up all the way?


All wash machines have different button configurations , contact Asko or their agent in U.K. -- Maytag for an instruction book . Most modern machines are eco friendly and use only minimum amount of water , often filling just to the bottom of the door , but will vary according to drum size.

Disolved lettering on fornt of LG washer


I have run into the same problem with my LG microwave oven/toaster. The did a poor job protecting the silk screened legends for the controls. I made my own labels. Avery makes label material that you can print on your ink jet printer. It's not crystal clear, but at least I know what button to push. Avery 8665 Clear Full Sheet Labels. Available at Staples and other stores.
