Question about Hotpoint WMA76 Front Load Washer

WMA61 Hotpoint Washing Machine 'Red Tap' symbol is flashing

The troubleshooting guide for this problem says it means the machine can't fill., and to check water supply is turned on and hoses not kinked. Of course the water is on and the machine is indeed filling. If I press the start button the light goes out and the machine continues to overflow.
I have discovered that the problem lies around the water level switch. I can remove the plastic pipe, blow into the switch and hear the contacts operate and this stops the filling. The pipe is not blocked either I can blow through fairly easily. Tempted to purchase a new switch but don't want to waste my money. Any suggestions.?

Well if your sure the other end is connected to the tub and is tight then id replace the switch its out of calibration it works off positive pressure from the water in the tub if you can blow in it and it actuates doesn't mean its working off the right pressure from the tub

Light of a red tap

This is indicating a problem with the water supply, check the inlet hose/s for a restriction or kink in the hose/s.
Make sure the tap/s are fully turned on, and that there is a good water prerssure.

I have a hotpoint ultima wt940 washing machine,, which is displaying a tap symbol,, when it fills up at the start of the cycle,, h2o flashes on the screen,, then the machine stops. Any advice? Thanks.

H20 is indicating a problem with the water supply.
Check tap/s are turned on fully, no restriction in hose/s, and make sure that there is sufficient water pressure.
Another possibility is that the inlet valve/s are faulty inside the washer.
Please rate my solution.
