Hotpoint BHWD 129 washer dryer - PROBLEMS

Hotpoint BHWD 129 washer dryer - is there a way of doing a washing cycle without it going immediately into a dry cycle? All programs seem to lead straight into a dry cycle ( the sun illuminates) Obviously I don't always want to tumble dry.

Also the spin speed change button won't let me select it no matter what program I try it on - it just flashes every time. I read in the manual that there are some programs you can't use it on but when testing it on the ones that apparently can it still won't let me select it.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles

This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.

SOURCE: dryer problrm

The sympoms are typical of a couple of reasons.

  1. Blocked condenser.
  2. faulty cold inlet valve, not letting water in to condense steam back to water.
When it is on the drying cycle, see if you can see water pumping out of the drain at. a slow rate.
If you can see no water at all coming from outlet hose, then chances are it is a faulty valve, and you will have replace same.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Drum paddles keep falling out (Hotpoint BWD129 washer/dryer)

I had this problem, and I was advised by the guy who has apparently 'replaced hundreds of these bloody things on this housing estate' to never buy this machine because 'its cheap and ****'

However, if you bend the long central tab ,the one that looks like it does bugger all, upwards into the drum (carefully though, only bend it a little) this will increase the tab tension, and your lifters should last for over six months instead of the previous couple of washes mine was doing.
As for the comment on washing trainers, I put a single towel in my machine and the lifters broke...

Hi

The issue is either with the thermal fuse of the unit that is bad or the motor that has gone bad. To check what is causing this, first check the fuse which is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct and try to jump start the thermal fuse or test its continuity with a voltmeter, no continuity means bad fuse. If the fuse is okay then replace the motor as that part usually makes a hum sound when it is unable to run. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Lights flashing on Hotpoint BHWM129


I had a similar problem with my Hotpoint BHWM 129 washing machine. The washer would not spin or drain properly and all the lights flashed after a wash cycle.
The solution was to pull the washer out and UNBLOCK the drain pipe which was crushed AND filled with 'gunk'. Once the crushed pipe was massaged back to normal size and the gunk was removed my problem was fixed. Not a nice job but I was going to ring HOTPOINT at £125 a call out fee so I am happy. I hope this helps someone else in time.

PROBLEM WITH HOTPOINT WASHER DRYER - MODEL BWD 129-ON DRY CYCLE CLOTHES COME OUT STEAMING AND WET. PLEASE ADVISE


If the clothes are coming out hot and steaming, then the water from the clothes is not condensing, it could be a blocked condenser, which will have to be removed and unblocked and cleaned.
The other possibility is that there is no cold water coming in on the drying cycle, this can also have the same effect.
Hope this helps.

Filter blocked, disconnect hose from under sink connection and drain into bucket. Hotpoint does not want you to change filter, contact Service Engineer.
