The tick is probably the door lock engaging the machine should start filling with water after this, try putting it on a spin cycle if this works ok then it is more than likely to be a faulty inlet valve as a spin cycle only operates the drain pump and motor

SOURCE: Hotpoint WF430 Noisy on Spin Cycle

Hi.

It could be loose balance weight, or worn drum bearings.
Remove belt and spin drum by hand from the inside, if you can hear a rumbling noise, or any noise, or it feels stiff to turn then the bearings have failed
If it is under 5 years old, then it should still be under warrenty provided you did not buy it from Comet or Currys.
If it is balance weight, you will be able to feel movement, there is one at top and one at bottom of m/c.

SOURCE: how does the wf430 hotpoint washing machine drain

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Not too sure what you mean but will try to explain. The water in the tub is only kept there because one end of the outlet hose is higher than the tub and the job of the pump is to push the water up the hose and out. If the outlet hose is lower than the tub, all the water inside will just flow out, the pump does not hold the water in the machine it only assists in its removal. If you remove the pump from the machine altogether then the water will just flow onto the floor but if you disconnect the pump from the wiring circuit it will just mean you have no mechanical way of emptying the tub. However if you lower the hose to the ground then by the force of gravity the water will flow out. Just one other point, the hose should come out of the machine and rise up the back of the cabinet then loop down again where it fits into a stand pipe or is connected to a waste pipe, if however the end of the hose is lower than the tub you will get a siphoning effect happen after the first pump out in which case the water from the machine will just empty on its own without the aid of the pump.

SOURCE: My hotpoint wf430 has flashing lights at the end of its cycle

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Lights come on to operate except door light,the door is locked but no a action on hotpoint wf430


Worn motor brushes can cause this. The door lock is on the same circuit as the motor so if brushes are worn it doesnt know door is locked and therefore wont start. likely just needs new brushes.

Door locked no light to say locked no washing action on hotpoint wf430


Brusheson motor will be worn. The door lock is in series with the motor so if brushes worn it interrupts the signal telling the board the door is locked. New brushes will likely be all it needs.

Cn I recieve an instruction manual for my washing mashine?


Hi,

You will need to go on-line. Type into your search engine 'hotpoint washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay.
You will obviously be asked for the particular model- WF430- at some point!

Good luck,
