"Test" displays no washing done!

Hi there;
Im having problems with my hotpoint washing machine. When I turn it on and set up my usual programme and press start the windows displays "test" then does a spin for prewash, a spin for wash, a spin for rinse and a quick spin for dry then stops. it never takes in any water nor tries to throw it out. it then stops and never goes on with the washing. i have tried to select another programme, change the load, unplug the socket but nothing works. Any ideas please?

Your test mode is on, maybe accidently. Press "start", "cancel", "on" & "off" together for 10 secs, you will see d/off come on the display. Do the same & the test mode comes on again.

Had my hotpoint washing machine repaired earlier today,had all inner parts renewed ,switched the main socket on but can not turn the machine off on the control panel. HELP! what would you suggest

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Don't hesitate- recall the repair person! Did he, or she, not fully test on site after their repairs? Certainly should have done.
Good luck,

'test' displayed on washing machine

After pressing different buttons and waiting 10 to 15 seconds after turning the power off, I have finally found the solution.
When you have pressed the "Start/Cancel" button to start your wash programme the LCD shows "test".
You must then press the "Start/Cancel" button which will give you the normal temperature and washing time and then importantly you must depress both the "Start/Cancel" button with the "On/Off" button which will give you a different LCD message and then it will automatically resets itself.

This works

To exit the TEST mode, press and hold down the "Start/Cancel" button until ALL of the console lights light up. Press both "Start/Cancel" and On/Off buttons simultaneously until " dOFF " appears in the display. The default setting will now appear and the machine can be used normally.
