Error message

Hotpoint’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)."

Hotpoint aquarious wf620

funny my machine does the same, i have had 2 answers one says to hold both the on off button and start button till it comes out of test mode? well something like that, (didn't work) and another tells me its just the board thats faulty, I do believe myself this can be reset by the right test equipment from Hotpoint (Hotpoint not helpful and i have a Hotpoint engineer as a neighbour), its also most embarrassing as i am a recently retired appliance engineer myself of 20 years, i have also been told its a conspiracy to get an engineer to call out to reset it and charge for doing so (being a computer control machine (not sure myself, these things don't happen - do they) Ps if you get told a cure and it works tell me please
