Aquarius wt745 hotpoint machine need to reset the pogram - as machine program not working properly

You have said "Every Program" but I'd like to make sure that's the case. The issue you're describing is highly unlikely to be programming. More likely I would suggest, is that the heater in the machine has failed. As a result, a 60 minute program (Which is planned to take 60 minutes taking into account the average time the water takes to heat up), will run for AGES while the machine waits for the heter to get the water up to temperature, which it can't because the heater is dead. Firstly, test this theory by running a 60 degree wash and feeling the door glass after 20 minutes. It should be HOT, my guess is it will be cold. Also, If I'm right, a cold wash program will run fine (Rinse and spin for instance) As will spin and pump out settings. If this isn't the case, then there is a possibility of a blockage. Though you have said the pump works, I would suggest disconnecting the waste pipe from your drain and putting it into a bucket. Fill the machine and then pump out. The water should FLOOD out VERY fast. If it's slow or a trickle, there is a blockage in the pipe or pump.

The quick wash takes over an hour any suggestions how to make it quicker?

The manual says wash number 5 takes 60 minutes the only shorter cycles are numbers 9 & 10 which take 55 minutes but they are cooler washes for wool and silk with a spin speed of 800rpm the number 5 has a spin speed of 1400rpm.

Hotpoint aquarius dishwashers keeps stopping half way through wash flashing between the 40 and 60 temp light. How can I fix this please

Control panel is sensitive on this model. Mine did the same and machine would not wash to the programme, stopped half way or would not set at all. Switch off machine and unplug from the mains. Leave for 10 minutes. Plug back in and switch the machine to your required programme. You should find this solves the problem. It worked for me.
Failing that, go to the Hotpoint website, find the customer service number and ask if there is anything else you can do to solve the problem yourself. That is what I did and I followed their advice. It saved me the cost of a service call out and they were very helpful. Good luck

Hotpoint fault?

Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)
