Hotpoint hv8b 593g all lights flashing and sounds like its trying to pump water out all the time even when empty

Sounds like a sensor or a computer board is having trouble. My Samsumg Top Loader went after 2 years it refused to spin out anything always went off balance even when nothing was in it. These new washers are Junk! I went back to the old style now I get my work done with out stress! Also the old washer which is a Maytag only cost me $100. that beats a thousand dollar machine which I had and Samsung would only allow a certified tec look at it well that a problem in it's self just for them to look not work on it was very costly and I feel if you have to buy a 1 or 2 year extended warranty that tells me it is a piece of junk! I had a Maytag it lasted me 32 years till it burn up. That is a good product the ones they make today are junk throw aways it is very sad.The best I can tell you is get a used one the old style it can be fixed and they don't cost as much.

Hi we have a Hotpoint Aqualtis AQXXD169PM washuing machine that is approx 3 years old. It has worked fin until a day or so ago when taking out the washing it was still soaking wet. After investigation it...

Assuming that the pump is okay and water is draining properly,Could be the speed control module or motor brushes,normally they last around 5 years and wear out simple to fit , you could remove one from the motor to check that is not worn right down to Zilch,if these are okay then you may need an engineer,as this is quite an expensive part to fit,you could phone hotpoint they charge around 100GBP,to repair......Parts are supplied free of charge with a call out hence the £100...hope you get on ok...

Excessively noisy when it spins. The faster the spin the noisier it gets.

Sounds like the Drum Bearings are gone they are **** on Hotpoint..Could be quite expensive depending on age...3 years old you will need a half drum complete with Bearings approx cost £80 plus labour....if more than 4 yrs old then perhaps bearing kit plus 3 hrs labour....Hotpoint give a FREE 5 yrs parts warranty however CALL CHARGE....£105 approx parts are free.....You need to ecide if you should fix or just buy a new one........

Hi my hotpoint washing machine is near 3 years old the last few weeks it is making a terrible noise when on spin only. \r\nthe noise is really loud but everything is washing and drying the same its just...

Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

With my hotpoint washing machine the clothes are soaking wet at the end of the cycle, don't know if its not spinning properly or what?

hotpoint machines are renowned for needing carbon brushes to be replaced in the motor they usually last between 12 months to 2 years depending on the amount of use the machine has.i would check these first as they are a common cause of hotpoints not spinning, if they are ok then check the pump and sump hoses for blockages (not emptying water out)

Will not drain

It sounds like the drainage may be blocked to prove this ;
1. Switch of the Washer
2. check youve switched off.
3. have a bucket handy.
4. Pull unit forward so you can access the pipes behind.
5. Locate the grey waste corrigated pipe connected to the waste plumbing. (Not the thin water pipe)
6. Remove corrigated (thicker) pipe and hold over the bucket.
5. switch unit back on. (Holding pipe over bucket)
6. Set the unit to final spin and start - this should empty the machine completely.

If the machine empties then your plumbing may need attention because the washer cannot push its waste water out through it.
You should get a full bucket load maybe more - so be ready to empty the bucket down the sink and reposition it.

If not then the drain pump motor may be faulty. This costs £19.99 + delviery from hotpoint - see : You will have to fit this yourself - or get a friend/engineer. I have never fitted one but anyone handy and safe with tools should be able to fit. I would guess no more than one hour to do.


If you have warranty (machine is less than 1 year old) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to see if they can be booked in urgently...This should be free.

If you don't have warranty (your machine is older than 1 year) then its still worth calling Hotpoint - you will be charged £90 callout but parts are free for machines less than 5 years old + its warranted for 30days. This is what I recommend - especially if you have kids at home over easter!!! (then get the Extended Cover afterwards)
Call hotpoint service on 08704422510
