Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

Open Question

Hello I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WMPF 843 Washing Machine (U.K.) and the programme selector knob turns but won't select a programme. Was wondering if I could fix it myself?

The knob turns but it feels loose and it doesn't click through the programmes and so the machine is stuck on one programme.

Hi,

The scrambled error code is significant. This could possibly indicate a logic problem in the controller board. True that an error is present such as that the water is not filling, however, it is likewise likely that the control board itself is causing the intake water valves not to open.

As ginko pointed out, there is no such code but this does not mean that there is no error. It could be that part of the system that detects the error and eventually displays is is faulty, and were are back to the controller board. This is also probably the reason the system will not reset as proposed by onnieh49 though you can try it for a longer period, say 1 hour. Should you be interested, a listing of standard error codes for most Hotpoint machines may be found here.

perhaps it would be to your advantage to post back the exact model number of the Hotpoint Washing Machine.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Take the knob off again and look at the back of it. It should be shaped to fit the shaft, like a letter D, it should only go on the one way but is possible it was put back on wrong resulting in the mixed up programs.

Sounds like it could be relatively expensive to put right.
Personally, I think you would be better in investing in a new washer, more so in view of the fact that is 7 years old.
There are numerous possibilities for the symptoms you describe.
Hope this helps you to come to a decision.

How do i reset washing machine AEG 64840


You can choose the right programme for any type of laundry following the descriptions on the washing programme tables (see «Washing Programmes»).
Turn the programme selector dial to the required programme. The programme selector determines the type of washing cycle (e.g. water level, drum movement, number of rinses) and the washing temperature according to the type of laundry.
The pilot light of button 8 starts blinking.
The selector dial can be turned either clockwise or anticlockwise. Position "0" to Reset programme/ Switching OFF of the machine.
At the end of the programme the selector dial must be turned to position "0", to switch the machine off.
If you turn the programme selector dial to another programme when the machine is working, the yellow pilot light of button 8 will blink 3 times and the message Err is displayed on the display to indicate a wrong selection. The machine will not perform the new selected programme.

How do i replace a programm switch on a simpson 750 esprit washing machine


Normally, you would push in on the knob to set to a cycle then pull out on knob to start machine. Am i correct? So when you push in to set the cycle it just spins?

Error code E20


Turn the dial to off.

Press and hold the start pause and nearest option button to it.

Whilst holding them, turn the dial one notch clockwise.

The machine will beep or flash, let go of the buttons.

Now turn the dial slowly through each position, stop and position 10 (9 clicks after letting go of the buttons) and note the error code displayed.

Continue turning the dial until you get to off.


Now turn to any programme, then, turn to off again.


Finally, turn to a programme and try the machine.


(It is very important that you turn to Off, a programme and then Off again).


Let me have the error code you retrieved if the appliance still doesn't work.

Hi i have an indesit w 123s washing machine, that set to any program it doesnt move on it just does that setting,then if you turn the machine off and set it to end program you can reset to rinse and the...


hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps

I have a HotPoint Aquarius washing machine WD420. When I switch it on,all the lights on the panel jst flash on and off continiously and nothing else happens.


If you have not already done so press the start/ cancel button for 3 seconds.
Switch off, wait 3 seconds, then switch on again, and try a programme
If it still will not work, then it is likely to be the display module, or the main power module. Also make sure the dryer knob is turned to off.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.
