There is a filter of sorts in the pump inlet pipe, its a big item catcher coins etc, but thats got nothing to do with the module error wich is a pricey item at £120! I've had one go already and in the last year, a inlet valve plus a control pcb panel in fact its almost a NEW machine! i'll never buy another hotpoint or ariston again. The machine is two yrs old!

SOURCE: Dishwasher, Ariston LI62, kept flashing on R

hi there.....this usually happens when the base of the machine is full of water.....switch the machine off ....remove the two plactic inspection panels at the bottom of the machine and dry out the base....check that all fittings and fixtures in the main cabinet are secure and not leaking..particularly the transfer tube from the wash pump to the upper spray arm..(machine needs to be pulled out of its position to check this as it is at the rear)

F08 Heater relay cannot be activated
this can be repaired cheap its part of the main board

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

SOURCE: Ariston Margherita Washer Dryer 2000 dries when not supposed to.

I think I am right in saying that on this machine you have the facility to either incorporate the drying process as part of a program or you can use it as a stand alone dryer, is it possible that you have simply asked the machine to dry after wash by selecting a wrong program is there a another button that allows you to wash with out dry even on a wash dry program if there is such a button/switch and it does not seem to do much it could be that the switch contact have corroded and are not making proper electrical contact check manuel

Hotpoint WD440 washer/dryer wont control.when plugged in 4 lights flash and it goes to pump out . no switch has any effect. the lights flashing are the on/off ,drying high heat.reduced creases and time...

The NTC for the dryer is situated on top of the dryer heater box, fault can often be caused by a simple broken wire, they are very weak at this point.

its the sensor on the dryer

if you take off the top, its mounted on top of the dryer box, usually has a white plug with 2 black wires attached

Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD440 Wash / Dryer. When switched on at the mains electricity the "Rinse Hold, Reduce Creases, Drying Heat, time saver, dry and on/off buttons all flash for approx 5 mins, then...

The flashing lights are an error code (Which I can't quite figure, but I believe ARE associated with a blocked filter. Is it possible that the slime and mess extended beyond the filter?

Before you go throwing the machine away, Unplug it from the mains (NOT just turn it off) to allow the machine to reset and while it's unplugged, stuff your garden hose up the waste water pipe and turn it on full blast to blow any remaining debris out of the way. (Wrap a towel over the end of the pipe to soak up the spliiage as one will not fit neatly into the other).

As the Dr Pepper ad says - "What's the worst that could happen?"

WD420, drying high heat, time saver and ON/OFF buttons are flashing, no function out of machine at all

this usually means that the main pcb has a corrupted eprom or eprom memory has been wiped... you either need a new pcb with eprom or a new board pre-programmed.

hotpoints terms for error

Setup error: check eeprom

Hotpoint washer dryer lights flashing

Check first the thermal fuse.

Test heating element to ensure is not grounded, and staying always on. Test the fan and ventilation system.

If you find no fault in there , then test the timer control board.

Ariston margherita washer dryer awd12

To dry you need to turn the program to the little 'star' sign after the program 8 and not before. You then need to select the time you want the dryer on for, if you don't select a time the dryer doesn't come on...........not filling is a problem, it may be ythe electrics or it may be that there is something wrong with the door -if the machine thinks trhe door isn't closed it won't fill up but this machine generally uses a small amount of water and wil not actually fill up as such anyway......hope that helps!

Push the sun symbol button and set it on the time/or the function of the dryer. Thats it. I believe you were using the drying function without heating:)
