It will be to do with the pressure switch it may be faulty, but more often than not there is a blockage in the pressure chamber which is located at the bottom of the outer drum, check the chamber and the tube that goes up to the pressure switch to see if they are blocked if they are clear of obstruction then test the pressure switch,to do this unclip the pressure switch from the side of the machine but dont take the wires off once off pull the tube off that goes down to the pressure chamber once off blow in to the nossle on the pressure switch, you should hear it click and then when you release it should click again, if it doet click twice then that is your problem, hope that helps.

When the 'wash' cycle finishes, the machine stops at the 'rinse and spin' cycle, and the 'prewash' LED flashes.


Victor. The prewash flashing is indicating a water fill issue. Rinse uses cold water only. check for clogged inlet screen on the cold water valve, and check if there is a screen on the supply valve also. If the inlet screen is all clogged up at the valve on the washer, you can clean it with a little windex and an old soft tooth brush. gently brush away any sediment or debris. If no filters are clogged, you will need to replace the fill valve assembley.

Hi my wf220 won't do a full cycle the prewash flashes all the time if i put it onto wash it just sticks on wash all the time but will spin if i just set it to rinse n spin or just fast spin could you help...


My guess is heating element, if its broke it wont heat water and because the thermostat does not detect hot water the machine does not move onto next step. i suspect you will not be able to do a prewash.
Part cost ££20 to £30
My machine has same problem but im struggling to pull out the eliment.

Hotpoint wf540 stopping on a rinse and spin and


check pump/filter/outlet hose for blockages. if ok, check pressure switch (disc shaped item at top of machine with 4? wires and a tube) by blowing into it gently - should hear clicks, then blow into tube to pressure chamber - should be clear.

Washing machine WMA54 Hotpoint sticks on prewash


I realised that the washer was not filling properly with water!  So I pulled it out from the wall and noticed the cold water fill pipe had been squashed and had a kink in it so not enough water was getting through.  I remedied this by pulling the pipes through the under sink cupboard and securing them with gaffer tape,  Hey presto the machine now works again!  Hooray :D

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WF 250 ON/OFF LIGHTS FLASHING


The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.

Prewash always flashing


yes i had a similar problem the prewash light kept coming on mid wash cycle and eventually stopped taking in the water just bypassing it straight to outlet without filling machine. i found if you remove the pump at the rear of machine and disconnect hoses there was a build of lets say deposits leading to a sensor through a opaque plastic connector to the top of machine . after cleaning the hoses thoroughly and removing all the crud machine worked as it should do, hope this helps
