Hotpoint WD440G Combination washer dryer, on/off button and time saver lights flashing. Had Hotpoint techie in yesterday, replaced 'module', loaded software to machine and then left. Started...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If it's not cured by carrying out the following GET THE TECHIE BACK IN! He/She has not fixed the fault you have paid for, plus you will have been charged for an item which the washer- and you- did not require- which would be shocking (I'm English!!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Wheres the filter on the hotpoint wd440

Remove front kick plate at bottom of the machine and see if there is a filter behind it. If not you need to remove lower back panel from machine, then remove sump hose, (Large black hose situated under tub) To remove this you may need grips for removing the retaining clamp.Although on some machines it may be a large jubile clip

Hotpoint WD440 creases clothes badly & takes ages to dry

This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.

That means that the machine detected a problem at a certain point of the cycle and stopped.

If the machine stops when filling check the inlet valve and the water supply.

If it stops because ofervilling check the water level switch.

If it stops when the cycle is hot water only , then check the heating element.

If it stops when draining, then inspect drain filter, drain pump , and drain hose. You access the drain hose removing a panel at the front side of the machine.

If it stops when motor is supposed to spin faster (rinse) then it is motor control unit or motor coupler.

If it is none of the above, then it is a defective control board.

Hotpoint WD440G In wash cycle and blows all household plugs

syphon out the water by getting the end of the drain hose into a basin and putting it lower than the water level. a few shakes usually gets it flowing. you probably have a short circuit. my guess would be the heater box/element to start.

Wd440g Hotpoint - in wash cycle and is blowing all the household

you will have a short circuit somewhere. usually the dryer box, but to get the water out you need to put the end of the drain hose lower than the water level into a basin to syphon it out.
the heating element of the dryer sometimes come loose on these machines and can be the cause of a short.
