Just had the exact same problem and think I may have solved it. even turning power off didn't solve it. I think what happened was that the programme had been interupted while drying. I tried everything to get machine to work afterwards but only the following worked - while lights are flashing put back to the same time I had set to dry (60) in my case and turned the dial to M for dry high heat light goes off after a short while - leave for 5 mins then press off. machine will make a noise for a short while then stop.
If this happens then machine should be back to normal.
this is same for both posts I guess.

The WD440 problem of flashing lights etc was solved by replacing the control unit, and this could only by done by a Hotpoint engineer who had a laptop, a satellite connection etc. etc... The unit cost was about £90, and by phone one was more or less forced to accept having to pay a £10 monthy.... !

How do I set spin only for Zanussi Lindo100 ZWF 71263W/71463W washing machine?


Spin
With this option you can change the default spin speed.
The indicator of the set speed comes on. Additional spin options:
No Spin
• Set this option to deactivate all spin phases.
Only the drain phase is available.
• The related indicator comes on.
• Set this option for very delicate fabrics.
• The rinses phase uses more water for some
washing programmes.
Rinse Hold
• Set this option to prevent the laundry creases.
• The related indicator comes on.
• There is a water in the drum when the programme is completed.
• The drum turns regularly to prevent the laundry creases.
• The door stays locked. You must drain the
water to unlock the door.

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?


Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

We have a Samsung WF8802 RPZ washing machine with a 5ud fault code. What is the problem?


We have a Samsung WF8604NGW front loading dimond 6kg washing machine. We had the 5ud error message. It turned out the filter was clogged with fluff from a new set of bathroom mats my wife washed. To fix: Put the machine on to drain (if poss) - should be 1 minute on our machine however as the machine was so clogged it took around 15 to finish. Also use the draning tube located next to the filter (on our machine) to get rid of as much water as poss. Now remove filter and clear (warning some water will remain in the system) Before spinning any laundry run the rinse cycle (with an empty drum) a couple of times and clear the filter each time. If the filter is still clogged the laundry will spin heavy as the water will still be in the drum leaving you with no very dry laundry and a horrible noise during the spin. Regards Rik.

I have a Hoover washing machine, its a front loader, I don't have the exact model in front me at the moment. I recently moved house, and yesterday after re-plumbing my washing machine, I put the washing...


If water remains in the drum after the drain cycle, the unit will not go into the spin cycle. There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
Make sure the drain hose is raised above the machine hose outlet to create a siphon effect. The drain hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly. You can tie a string around the hose and hook it on the water valve creating a loop in the hose. Raise the loop of the drain hose so the top of the loop height is at the center of the washer drum.

I have had aqarius a hotpoint aqarius 1000 wm62p


It has a wide variety of wash programmes for white cotton, colourfast cotton, polyester, non-colourfast cotton, wool blends and wool itself. These standard programmes take from an hour and a quarter to three-quarters of an hour to complete.
There is also a quick wash programme lasting just under half an hour for lightly soiled items and a pre wash soak for heavily soiled items. The machine has four buttons providing extra facilities that can be set independently of the main wash programmes to give you a more comprehensive range of settings.
There is a rinse hold button, which I find extremely useful. When set this holds the clothes in the final rinse water until you are ready to unload the machine. You then release the button, let the machine go through the final spin and then you can unload the machine. It means that you don’t leave damp washing in the machine for the time between the cycle finishing and you unloading the machine, which would make for very creased clothes. There is also a button to depress if you want to use the super rinse facility. This merely increases the volume of water in each rinse so that the clothes are rinsed more fully. I have never used this particular facility, as the ordinary rinses are fine for my needs.
The next button allows for a slow spin. I find that this one is really useful for the items that I need to iron as it means that they don’t come out of the washing machine as creased as they normally would on a faster spin. The only problem with this is of course that the clothes are not as dry as they would otherwise have been. The final button is used to set the economy wash feature. This means that the washing machine’s own heating system is not used and the wash is done with the water at the temperature entering the machine from your hot and cold water tanks. This of course means a cooler wash so it’s only suitable for lightly soiled items.
The door remains locked during the wash programmes so that it cannot be opened accidentally and it can be locked when not in use too if you have small children who might get into mischief! The other big selling point for this particular model is that it gauges the size of the load and uses the correct amount of water needed eliminating the need for the half-wash programme. This also means that it is both water and energy efficient

Programme gets stuck on wash cycle


Most likely a defective door switch.

The 3 buttons


button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
