Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

Open Question

Washer drier lights flashing programs stop after a few minutes

Hi I've got a Hotpoint BHWD129 washer drier that is about 18 months old. I hardly use the thing, once a week at the most for the washer and I've used the drier a total of about 20 times. Yesterday after washing a load i emptied half of the items out and put on the drier - after about 4 minutes the drier stopped and the lights on the front panel started flashing. This model has 5 buttons in a horisontal line (1200/600) (Extra Rinse) (Super Wash) (Eco Wash) (Start/Pause) all of these lights are flashing at the same time. There are also 6 additional 'program' lights that run sort of vertically but which don't have buttons assigned to them - these light up depending on what program has been selected. These lights just stay as they should be when the other lights are all flashing. I've looked all over on-line and come to the conclusion that all 4 lights flashing is error code F15 - "Dryer element relay faulty". Although it could also be F15 - "Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked." depending on if I have an EVO1 EVO2 EVO4 or standard model. My first puzzle is how do I find out which I have? I think it's EVO1 as there is a /1 at the end of the model number. Then next puzzle is what do I do to repair it? I'm pretty confident with all things electrical, I'd even be happy replacing the relay - but where is it? I've found 4 relays on the main circuit board but how do I know which of the 4 is the right one? Any advice or guidance is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I removed the three screws, and lower cover cleaned the few pennies, screws and nasty gunk build up from the filter. The wash machine seems to function as it did prior to the clogged issue. Thank you everyone !!!

Hotpoint Washing Machine (W540) stopped working, LEDs flash....?


You must get the filter out, as there is a very good chance that this is the prob, keep unscrewing it and try to move it about, then screw it back in again , and then out again, hopefully this will dislodge whatever it is that is holding the filtter in.
Plz rate thiese comments.
Thanks.

I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.
