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?

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.

Rinse Light flashes on Miele W829 novotronic

Remove all the load and try to move the drum manually clockwise and anti clockwise. If you notice any friction check the motor separately and the agitator assembly separately.
It could be due to alignment shift causing a wobbly motion or a failure of the bearings.

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.
