Hotpoint wdl520 washer not draining

I replaced the washer heating element after it shorted and blew the plug fuse. The washer runs ok up until draining and then clicks and the five lights across the panel start to flash orange and the door lock releases although the lock light remains lit along with the green end light. I have stripped down the drain pump which is all clear of any obstructions and the winding has a reading of 224 ohms. Any ideas......Cheers

SOURCE: All lights flashing!

I resolved the issue. The drain plug was clogged. To repair this first unplug the power from the machine. Then remove three screws holding the lower front panel on. Grab a bucket and put it under the "plug" on your right. Hold your nose as this part may smell. Slowly unscrew the drain plug and allow all contents to empty into the bucket. Now you know why the machine refused to work properly! Clean the drain plug and secure it tightly back in place. Put the panel back on. Plug in the power. And this should resolve your issue. Now go tell the wife how hard you had to work to fix her washing machine,duck, and do a load or two to help her out! Happy Washing!

Possible that the inlet valve is not working or the ccontrol unit is faulty.
Please switch off and when switched on check for the voltage to the inlet valve, if water flows, if not the control panel is faulty.
If voltage is present and valve does not work then the valve is faulty.
Also check the DOOR switch( a safety switch) because if the switch is not working the control panel will not allow the control panel to proceed to switch on motor.
Also check and tighten all the connectors to the control panel.

My hotpoint wdl520 washer dryer is no longer drying my clothes. I still spins but there is no heat for the clothes to dry. Is there a reset button on this model or is it going to be more serious??


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Problem with hotpoint as66vvxna1 dryer


There are a couple of things that you can check. FIRST go to the electrical box where the circuit breaker or fuse for the dryer is. Sometimes on half of the circuit breaker is tripped allowing the controls of the dryer to work, but not the heating element. Turn off the breaker and turn back on. Or replace the fusees. If this does not work, then you may have a loos wire or a burned out heating element. Sometimes there is a bad high temperature switch. Do the circuit breaker or fuse first. If the washer did not spin out the water well enough, the water can short the element to trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse.

I had similar problem due to heating element furring up and shorting against side! New element fitted by engineer now OK - It also uses much more electricity with this problem. The old element looked like it was bent so could more easily have shirted out!

Hotpoint aquarius WDL520 all lights flashing not spinning water still in bowl cant find instructions only bought it at xmas


There should be a small door at the front bottom of the machine, open it and unscrew the plunger. try that first as there could be a blockage.

The machine will not spin until the water is drained out.

Water not heating or drying


It is possible that the element has gone, \even after such a short period of time.
If it is only 6 months old, then you need to contact Hotpoint service department, and get it fixed under the guarantee, do not try to fix it yourself,, as you could invalidate the guarantee.
If you look inside your user instruction hand book you will find the telephone number you need to ring to get service.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thankyou.
