Hello Lainy34,

Give this a try, turn off then back on. When on appears on the screen press and hold the "start/cancel" and the "on/off" at the same time until "D:off" appears in the display. It should be back to normal after that. Hope this fixes it for you.


I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Lid lock is blinking and won't cycle Whirlpool Washing machine Model WTW4850XQ1

blinking lid lock light tells you their is a code being stored in the computer, something is wrong. the booklet that tells you how to access the codes is located on the front of the machine, to get to it tilt the washer back (get help to hold machine) look up to the right side toward the top of the front, plastic bag, remove the booklet and follow the diagnostic test. you may not get it into diagnostic first time if you have not done this before but keep trying you will make it , it will give you a code to your problem please put the booklet somewhere in case the serviceman needs it if he has to come out

The cold water is not working in my washing machine

Check the supply hose filter, and the filter on the intake of the solenoid. Switch the wires on the solenoid to see if rinse will put hot water into the machine, the contact at the timer may be going bad. While reversed, see if it puts cold water into the wash, that will test the solenoid.

My machine keeps bleeping to tell me the cycle is finished but will not begin another programme ?

1. Set the cycle knob to any "X" (reset) position
2. Press and hold the Pre-wash and the Start buttons at the same time. While still holding these buttons, turn the unit on by pressing the On/Off button
3. Keep holding the Pre-wash and the Start buttons until the digital display comes on (about 5 seconds)
The digital display will show 00 for no faults or will show a fault code.
To end the test program turn the washer off at any time

Let me know what error codes come up, if any.

I have a hotpoint ultima wf860 washing machine when trying to do a wash it just keeps saying test what is wrong with it ?????

SomeHotpoint'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). Now try a normal wash programme again and hopefully it should be fine. If it goes into test mode by itself, then it may be an indication that there is a real fault, or a faulty programmer board. hope this helps.

The machine keeps showing test. it won't go onto any other programme. it keeps running through the test programme then stops, i then try and put it to wash and it will come up with test again. OK, to help you, I have found you your service and troubleshooting manual. Below is a DIY self help. washer link, this will help you to troubleshoot your issue.
You should try to reset it, but if that doesn't work, you may find you have a main controller board failure.

Pressing and holding the two centre buttons ie on/off and start/cancel together for a few seconds causes the machine to run in 'test' mode. Doing the same again puts it back to normal wash.
I nearly called an engineer once because my daughter causes it all of the time!

You could simply have a blocked drain pump. Is there water still in the unit when the code LE comes on, if so simply remove obstruction (outlet filter) and try spinning unit. Click above on troubleshooting, and look for drain, filter, etc. You're bound to find something useful. And rate pl.
