Hotpoint bwd129 Hi, My washing machine will not start, the door lock light flashes quickly and constantly. It was doing the washing when my electiric tripped so did not finish what it was doing. I have tried unplugging it but nothing stops the flashing. It will not start like usual. Is there anything I can try? Kind regards Sean

I'm not familiar with this machine with out a picture, but does it have a control knob that would allow you to advance through the cycles? If so you should be able to go to a spin cycle and empty the unit. How long did you leave it unplugged? Sometimes it requires several minutes to loose its memory. If not you may need to empty the water manually as it may be a fail safe to keep you from getting the floor all wet. Take a bucket and lift the drain hose out of the house drain pipe and lower it into the bucket to empty. It may take several trips. This will not work unless the hose comes out of the bottom of the machine which I think yours does. Once empty try plugging the unit back in and see if that helps. If not the main control processor may have taken a voltage spike and has suffered irreversable damage and will need to be replaced. Please give me more info..

I have a Hotpoint BWM129 washing machine and the Delay start and Superwash lights are flashing. Can anyone explain what fault code this is? The door locked light is also on.

Manual says to unplug maching from wall for at least 40 seconds to a minute. This will reset the unit. If that does not work you will need to call a service tech.

Hotpoint WMA46 door problem

From the symptons you describe, it could be a broken or weak spring in the door handle, which ca be fixed relatively inxpensively, that is where i would start, you can purchase one directly from hotpoint, or possibly a local repairer. if that does not cure the problem, then the odds are it will be a faulty programme module.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles

This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.
