Wf860p computer control automatic

This machine worked fine up till one morning when switched on the display shows normal until you press start when it goes into test mode, does a short test run, then ends with the "on" message, there are no visible signs of any electrical damage on the module, motor reads ok on test meter, and heater element reads ok, so does inlet valves & interlock. there are no fault numbers showing. I welcome any other fault number remedies for future reference, many thanks

    i have tried disconnecting the power, no avail, i am an ex engineer of almost 20 years, but this problem is new to me, it is my machine and is out of guarantee, obviously, i have tested the various parts for faults but do not have the hardware key, the machine runs through a quick test procedure then bleeps and allows user to reset programme details, number spin and options etc, then when press start goes into test again, is there an actual faulty part on the board, i am capable of replacing such as resistors and the like, i have also been reminded the power went off the day before, could a power surge have blown something?

I have had this problem it is caused by accidentally pressing both the on and start button together. It puts the machine into demo mode. You need to press both the buttons together again for about 30 seconds. If it doesn't work first time switch the machine off and do it again. Sometimes you have to do this many times before it works but eventually it does work.
Very frustrating.
I found the cause was either leaning on the front of the machine or resting a broom which when you pick it up accidentally presses the two buttons.

This problem is caused by a faulty main PCB, in the back on the left of drum looking from the back, this function should normally only operate when we fit a hardware key in the rear slot provided.you may resolve by disconnecting from power supply for fifteeen minutes and then re connecting but no promises.

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 from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will have to look at the manufacturer's plate, probably on the back of the machine to find the appropriate date then-
Date code 39, March 2005
Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed

Date code 39, March 2005 to date code 42, June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to normal

Date code 43, July 2005 onwards
Press both start/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.
Good luck,
John C

Switch on it shows "test" and cannot programme


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It depends on what date the machine was manufactured. The date should be on the plate which is probably in an awkward position on the back ;-0(
Date code 39 March 2005
Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed
Date code 39 March 2005 to date code 42 June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to normal
Date code 43 July 2005 onwards
Press both start/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.
Good luck!

I have a hotpoint ultima wf860 washing machine when trying to do a wash it just keeps saying test what is wrong with it ?????


SomeHotpoint's are designed to go into test mode when the start button and the on/off button are pressed at the same time. If you are stuck in Test mode, simply hold the start button down until it comes out of test mode, then hold both the start buttons and the on/off button down until you see 'D:end' (or similar message). Now try a normal wash programme again and hopefully it should be fine. If it goes into test mode by itself, then it may be an indication that there is a real fault, or a faulty programmer board. hope this helps.

Leaking water from bottom draw


To put machine into test mode: Press and hold keylock, then press and hold start button. Hold both in until machine beeps (if you have display, it will show all symbols). Press power button- display should now show HO. Press start button until LD shows in display- this tests lid motors. Activate lid motors by pressing keylock button- if you open drawer about 3 inches, you should see lid come down. Pressing keylock again will raise lid. Raise and lower lid several times by pressing keylock button to ensure lid is working properly- if not, lid motors need replacing. Good luck!!

Error Message


I called the Hotpoint helpline and the solution to this problem was simple:

I had to press and hold the start/cancel button until all the lights on the display flashed
then I had to press and hold the start/cancel button along with the on/off button together at the same time, until the word "dOFF" was displayed... the msachine then functioned as normal.

Easy when you know how!

HOW CAN I GET MY HOTPOINT AQUARIUS 1400 - OFF CONSTANT TEST PROGRAM?


This works

To exit the TEST mode, press and hold down the "Start/Cancel" button until ALL of the console lights light up. Press both "Start/Cancel" and On/Off buttons simultaneously until " dOFF " appears in the display. The default setting will now appear and the machine can be used normally.

If you by accident press the start button and the cancel button at the same time it puts the washer into demo mode.To switch it off press both buttons at the same time and hold until dEND is displayed. Sometimes you have to keep trying but it will work, it did with mine ok.
