Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Hotpoint Ultima WMD740 and never had a problem with it. I used it two days ago and thought the machine had finished (it was right at the end of the cycle and gives two beeps when finished).

Went to use it today and everything is fine with the programming but it will not start the programme. I think it has something to do with me stopping the machine before it finished its programming but can't figure out how to rectify this....Any ideas please The clock starts the countdown for the cycle but nothing is happening.

Starting with the rotary switch in the off position, turn it one click clockwise, press and hold on the bottom right hand button, turn the rotary switch one more click CW and release the button.

SOURCE: Odyssey battery problem?

You need to remove the battery cables and clean the connections with a wire battery terminal cleaning tool. Then start the car and check the voltage at the battery with a multimeter. It should be between 13.5-16 volts. Any less and the alternator is defective. If this all checks out and you are 100% sure nothing is on drawing power then the battery more than likely has a dead cell. Remove the battery and take it to your parts store and have it tested. You will probably need a new battery.

My washer is French how do I change it back to English

1. Turn the power on at the wall socket.
2. Select ON/OFF at the console so that there is nothing showing in the display - ie: machine OFF.
3. Press & hold the 2nd, 3rd and 4th function buttons until the machine BEEPS (approx. 5 seconds). (centre 3 buttons below the display).
4. Select ON/OFF at the console to turn the machine ON so that the display is ON - it should now show language options scrolling through.
5. Wait until the language you want is shown or scroll through them manually using Spin Speed or Temperature then press Child Lock to select it.

Hope this helps

In my hotpoint ultima WMD942P washing machine's softner compartment i always find water at the end of the cycle. its a new machine.

This is completely normal, the machine puts water into this chamber during the rinse cycle to wash the softener into the machine.

I have a Hotpoint Ultima 1200 - WM75. At the end

Check the filter and the actual pump itself for blockage.unless you have already done so, also pump itself could be faulty.

My Hotpoint Ultima WMD 960 displays "F04" on the display panel before the programme ends. Have cleaned the filter and it worked OK in spin mode and finished normally but now have put in a washing load, it...

Error code F04 means pressure switch jammed on empty.
Do the following.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside the hose.
Remove the hose on to the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.

My washer is stuck on f/o5 with water sstill init is a hotpoint ultima super silent

there is a blockage. to get the water out put the end of the drain hose into a basin lower than the machine. you may have to shake it about a bit to get the water flowing.
you will need to check the filter or pump for foreign objects.
these may be at the front behind the kick plate or the rear behind the lower panel.
