Cycles continues all day

Hotpoint WML540P 6kg Aquarius is 6months old and the cycles do not seem to stop rather just seems to go on all day. I put a wash in the machine when I left for work at 8am and at 6pm the machine was still going until 8pm when I decided that something must be wrong. Please could you advise what the probelm may be?

Whatever the prob is, my advice to you is to call Hotpoint service for attention.
If you do anything yourself, you will make your guarantee null and void.
As it is only 6 months old, it will not cost you anything to get it put right.
Or ring the Hotpoint help line for advice, you will find the number in your handbook.
Please rate my advice to you.

I may have a similar problem. My washing machine is out of warranty, and I have tried replacing both the sump pump and the water level gauge. My next port of call is the control module (which annoyingly needs programming in situ for this model). The thing that it will cost, of course, is time waiting for the engineer. Saying that, I have now wasted many hours on this problem.

Nicky, try a dry run without a load. Also check if moving to different levels gives you any reading. If not, you have narrowed down where the problem is.

Water in cycles is always cold

You need to check the heating element continuity using a multimeter. If there is continuity then check voltage at the time of the heating , if there is no voltage then the control panel is a suspect including the relay to the coil.

WMA 54 Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine lights flashing

the problem here is the machine is not emptying when its supposed to, you will find it is stopping at the rinse cycles. there is a sump underneath the machine that needs to be emptied. From my experiences, 9 out of 10 hotpoints that i would of repaired with the same problem as you are having is usualy caused by using the color catcher sheets, they are a disaster.

Hi there, I've got a Hotpoint Aquarius washer / dryer and this has just started happening to me - it seems to get to the end of the cycle then repeat itself. However, I do not seem to be able to cancel the cycle, or am I able to switch it off. It's been going for about 4 hours now. Any ideas?
