Re: WD440 programme m
This sounds like a faulty pcb and/or inlet valve. see links for prices.
meatballs77 - If you have warranty (the machine is less than 1 year old which yours is) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to replace... Hotpoint should be able to fix this - this should be free. call 0870 4422 510
Rememer parts are free up to five years - but there is a £90 callout fee after the first year.(unless you extend the full warranty)

Hotp[oint Aquarius WD440 washer /dryer - Has a distinct smell from clothes when washed like stagnant water is lying somewhere in the machine, It has all benn stripped down but cannot find anything wrong. Whats the solution????
This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.
the steam gets condensed back to water and pumped away so sometimes draining problems cause poor drying. is the machine plumbed in according to handbook?
also your dryer filter may be blocked but this is not accesable without the dryer box being stripped down.
yes, the dryer is pants im afraid. weve had ours going on 4 years & it has broke down every 6-10months - seriously! the dryer will leave clothes hot & steamy but when hung up for 1/4hr they r dry! _ Hotpoint advised us that he machine is esigned his way - but dont believe a word from their corporate b***hit mouths!
Just had the exact same problem and think I may have solved it. even turning power off didn't solve it. I think what happened was that the programme had been interupted while drying. I tried everything to get machine to work afterwards but only the following worked - while lights are flashing put back to the same time I had set to dry (60) in my case and turned the dial to M for dry high heat light goes off after a short while - leave for 5 mins then press off. machine will make a noise for a short while then stop.
If this happens then machine should be back to normal.
this is same for both posts I guess.
