SOURCE: my Hotpoint WML540 wont start

This sound like the main control board has blown and this is due to the motor shorting out, if you isolate the power supply and remove the control panel you will be able to remove the pcb/module and inspect it for signs of burning or split tracks if you find this is the case usually it is cheaper to replace the machine than purchase a pcb and motor.

First try unplugging the washer machine for about fifteen minutes or so. Then plug it back in. If the problem still there, then it is the board. It can be fix.

SOURCE: F18 appears on screen halfway

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

My list shows Bosch's 'F18' as 'pump blockage'.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a Hotpoint WML540 Aquarius which has stopped mid cycle, all the lights are flashing and it is stuck on 'pump out' can anyone please advise how to fix this?


Switch off the machine for sometime and then power it while holding the play/pause button. If the machine does not reset but continues to flash it is possible that there are errors within or is a failure of the panel. Check the door switch, check the connectors and finally check for moisture in panel- If so use a hair dryer to mop up the moisture by heating the panel slowly,

hi sharon, i had simular problem, if your waste outlet from your machine to kitchen sink is pushed on to sink waste sometimes held with jubilee clip, disconnect it and check weather its clear cos it can get build up of ****** and stop water from draining, hope this helps.
