Sounds like control switch is faulty. Check wires at motor first for corrosion or arcing.

If this is the first and forth LEDs then i was told by a Hotpoint engineer that this means 'heater cut out due to overheat' and that probably the heater is just covered in limescale. If that is the case then running a descaler through the dishwaer on the highest setting should fix the problem and clean the inside of your machine to boot !
I guess this would happen if your machine is a few years old and you live in a hard water area.

Whay my Hotpoint -Ariston Aquarius WD420 Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer stpos have way the circle


You say it stops half way through cycle (if I have read it right), especially when fast spin starts. Does it stop anywhere else (in wash cycle or rinse cycle)?

I would check the main filter in the sump (pipe from drum to drain pump) and ensure pump itself is not blocked which could cause the pump out time to be exceeded and thus stop the program. A faulty pressure switch could also be responsible.
I would also check the tacho on the motor and connections to main board at bottom of machine near to motor.

Disconnect machine by pulling out plug and wait 10 minutes for capacitors to discharge before doing anything, to protect yourself against residual voltages.

From a retired engineer who owns one of these machines.
