Hi,
there could be many reasons for this, try these

Air-gap device: The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. if this develops crack or is deformed, you may develop a leak or blockage.
The tube:There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. there could be blockage or deformation in this tube.

Inlet spout:Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. there could be some blockage in this.

try to find the place till which the water flow is unhindered in the machine.

cheers

Could you please tell me what h2o means on my hotpoint aquarius washer


Hi
H20 on these washers is a filling problem.
What you need to do is make sure the water supply tap is turned on the hose at the back isnt kinked up.
Take the fill hose off and aim it into a bucket and make sure the water pressure is good.
If thats all ok then you will need a multimeter and test the coils on the water valve and if faulty the valve will need to be replaced.
Check them and see what you find.
But the H20 error code is a water filling problem.

WASHER WON'T FILL WATER


Check to be sure the drain line is higher that the tub of the washer. You have a siphon going on the drain.

Hot point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)


All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a hotpoint aquarius wd640 my boiler has broke so could you tell me if my washer drier is a hot or cold water fill


Most washers made today, are cold fill only, best way to check is look at rear of washer, and if there is only one hose, then it is cold fill only, if 2 hoses, then hot and cold fill..
So if your boiler is not working, then it should be o/k to use if cold fill only.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint ultima 1200 washer/dryer


Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
