Check first the thermal fuse.

Test heating element to ensure is not grounded, and staying always on. Test the fan and ventilation system.

If you find no fault in there , then test the timer control board.

The NTC for the dryer is situated on top of the dryer heater box, fault can often be caused by a simple broken wire, they are very weak at this point.

its the sensor on the dryer

if you take off the top, its mounted on top of the dryer box, usually has a white plug with 2 black wires attached

Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD440 Wash / Dryer. When switched on at the mains electricity the "Rinse Hold, Reduce Creases, Drying Heat, time saver, dry and on/off buttons all flash for approx 5 mins, then...


The flashing lights are an error code (Which I can't quite figure, but I believe ARE associated with a blocked filter. Is it possible that the slime and mess extended beyond the filter?

Before you go throwing the machine away, Unplug it from the mains (NOT just turn it off) to allow the machine to reset and while it's unplugged, stuff your garden hose up the waste water pipe and turn it on full blast to blow any remaining debris out of the way. (Wrap a towel over the end of the pipe to soak up the spliiage as one will not fit neatly into the other).

As the Dr Pepper ad says - "What's the worst that could happen?"

My clean light is blinking and it will not start


Push in this order within 5 seconds...

Sani Rinse Air Dry Sani Rinse Air Dry....if you dont have those buttons, substitute:

Hi Temp Wash Heated Dry Hi Temp Wash Heated Dry

Let it go through the diagnostics cycle, about 10 minutes. Push Cancel/Drain. If it occurs again, you have something wrong with the heater circuit. Check the heating element for breaks.

ON/OFF & Time saver Button keeps flashing


For mine, it started flashing the on/off light along with the "drying high heat" and the "reduce crease".
Unplugging the unit for 30 minutes appears to have reset the machine and it is now working.

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440, Rinse Hold, Time Saver and On/Off light flashing


This is typical of a control board problem.
About 60% of the time they can be repaired, but it's easier to replace it than keep testing.

If you are competent at electrical repairs, then read -on, otherwise order a replacement, and have it fitted.

Isolate supply.
Remove top cover by removing screws at top rear, slide cover rearwards.
Control board is on right at the front.
Test connections - remove and replace all connections, checking for signs of arcing.
Check main wiring loom to motor for integrity and damage.
If no signs of damage, remove control unit board, and examine for arcing or poor contacts, overheated components or damage.

If everything still looks ok, a replacement control board should be fitted and the machine tested.

Hope this helps.

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.
