    Have same problem - WF540 machine. Wash enhance light & rise hold light on & flashing together with on/off light flashing furiously or mini load light together with on/off light - water going in and straight out. I've unplugged machine hoping it would re-set itself, but to no avail. Also, just checked outgoing pipe, this seems to be ok. Any other suggestions? All welcome..

    We have the same problem with our Hotpoint WF 541 (only about 15 months old). It seems to work when its empty but as soon as you put any clothes in (even just a couple of light items) it stops part way through and the 1st and 3rd lights flash (wash enhance and rinse hold) and the on/off button flashes rapidly. I've tried cleaning the filter at the front of the machine, unplugging it, adjusting the drain pipe - any other ideas?

We have a WF 541p which keeps throwing its belt off (even the replacement belt) , though the small spindle has guide teeth the large drum wheel seems to rely on friction to keep it alligned on its smooth exterior ( there are no guide walls on the outside of the wheel) it is only 16 months old, we live on an island so need to try to repair it ourselves.any suggestions gratefully recieved.I guess the bearings may have gone, we accepted its known as a noisy machine but expected it to last a little longer!

Had similar prob with wf430, 3rd & 4th light flashing (rinse hold and time saver). read previous entries, checked for blocked pipes at back but all clear. Took out some of my washing and tried again with a lighter load and it seems to be working now. Not sure if perhaps we overloaded it, despite its 6kg washing capacity boast. Hope this helps

Check your drain pipe behind. This is supposed to be approx 3 feet above ground level; then the hose goes into the stand-pipe without being too tight. If this does not work, click "thanks for trying"; your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust

It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.

Water will not drain - rinse hold/mini load lights flashing

You might have to take the pump off and clean out the debris in the line theres probably lint, change and other things in the line. Take the lines off and run a piece of wire through the lines to make sure their clear.

Mini load, rinse hold and on/off lights flashing

Check the relay and the control board. Something is telling the inlet valves to stay open and allow water. If you just bought and replaced the inlet valve that would be your next stop

The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.
