Re: hotpoint ultima 7KG WT960

The detergent/conditioner dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!

Why doesnt the fabric conditioner dispenser empty after each wash?

The softener dispenser is flushed with water as part of the wash cycle. The residual water prevents softener from clogging the dispenser between was cycles.

What does the code f-05 for a hotpoint ultima WT640 1400 SPN

F05 measn some blockage, check and clean the filter at the front; remove the top cover of the machine,(power off) and disconnect the flexible hoses from the dispenser. Check if theyre blocked. The dispenser itself can be seperated - generally held together with plastic clips. Clean out any crud or hardened detergent.

Fabric conditioner is taken from the detergent tray by siphon action. Most likely flexible siphon pipe is blocked. Remove machine top, identify the pipe coming from the softener compartment, detach and clean.

Hope helps.

Hi my wt960 leaks from the front of the machine. Usually on rinsing or spinning. It really has me baffled had it apart several times now. The filter is all clear. Does appear that the draw fills up alot...

I get this a lot on our Hotpoint WF860. The problem is that the drain pump is blocked by a bit of sock / breast pad / coins / hairbands etc! It is easy to fix by removing the hose which leads from the drum to the pump. I expect the problem will then be obvious if you look inside the pump.
