Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Hotpoint WD440 Hello.... I have the above washing machine thats decided to go **** up.... Symptoms... The machine will carry out a Prewash programme successfully.. all the way through When I select any other programme the maching will go through the wash cycle but when it moves onto the rinse and spin (Light Comes on) the machine will just alternate between forward and backwards slow tumble.... If I then turn the machine off and back on the wash light will keep flashing .. I have emptied the filter at the base of the drum and checked the pump not blocked all looks clear the water coming in has been checked ie turn each off and on one at a time and can confirm that water enters the detergent tray.... Questions: Whats different between prewash and normal wash... might help to solution.. Im down to 2-3 possible things ... Heater element / Sensor but i presume that pre wash would have stuck if this was shagged.. The presure valve at the top left of the unit behind the detergent tray or lastly the PCB board if so where can I get replacemnet.. Thanks in advance Jim Bailey

Re: Hotpoint WD440

On the power pcb panel, there is an eeprom. This gets corrupted and throws the machine into a frenzy. A replacement should include a new pcb and a new eeprom. Only from dealers unfortunately.

Hotpoint wd440 washer/dryer. 1st problem was it wouldn't drain so I cleared the pipe. Now the machine 'wash' light flashes during a wash. The washing machine doesn't seem to hold the water...

Make sure that the outlet of the pipe is at least as high above the floor as the top of the machine. If it is lower than the level of the water, it will just drain - there is no shut-off valve to stop it from doing this. Please rate this answer.

WD440 drying high heat and 0n/off light flashing

Just had the exact same problem and think I may have solved it. even turning power off didn't solve it. I think what happened was that the programme had been interupted while drying. I tried everything to get machine to work afterwards but only the following worked - while lights are flashing put back to the same time I had set to dry (60) in my case and turned the dial to M for dry high heat light goes off after a short while - leave for 5 mins then press off. machine will make a noise for a short while then stop.
If this happens then machine should be back to normal.
this is same for both posts I guess.

WD440 programme m

This sounds like a faulty pcb and/or inlet valve. see links for prices.

meatballs77 - If you have warranty (the machine is less than 1 year old which yours is) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to replace... Hotpoint should be able to fix this - this should be free. call 0870 4422 510

Rememer parts are free up to five years - but there is a £90 callout fee after the first year.(unless you extend the full warranty)
