H20 symbol on display of hotpoint wf 860 washing machine


Pull off your washer mains cord from the wall. Turn off your wall faucet,, the valve on wall which allows water into the washer. (h2o means your washer is not receiving the most importing thing - water). Disconnect the pipes of the water from the wall. Check by opening the wall valve to see if the water flow is gud. Next fit back carefully. Then unscrew the other end of the hose/hoses at the entry point of your washer - remove the fine filters and clean out with an old tooth brush; clean inside the opening of inlet valve too carefully, check. Now re-fit the filters carefully and screw back the hoses. You are done now. It is advisable to close the wall valve when your washing is done, takes pressure off the machine valve.

Ok - I will answer my own problem seeing as though I have now fitted it!
1. remove door (2 screws)
2. There is a tensioned wire loop holding the front part of the boot seal in position. - prize off the plastic cap at the 11 o'clock position, all will become clear and you will be able to remove the wire loop.
3. Remove top of washing machine (2 allen screws behind caps at the front.
4. Remove soap dispenser draw and any screws holding the front control panel and top of the door.
5. Remove bottom front plinth (just pull it off) underneath are a couple of screws holding the front panel part of the machine, remove these.
6. Remove front of machine giving you access to the steel band which locks the other end of the boot seal in position. Slacken this band right back using a nut-spinner screwdriver. Pull off the old boot and clean the lip ready for fitting of the new boot.
7. Fit new boot seal using a squirt of washing up liquid as lubricant if needed (mine didn't) to reseat the seal.
8. Refit and tension steel band.
9. Re-assemble front panel, ease boot back into front lip position then refit wire loop using a suitable pair of pliers/molegrips to crimp the retaining plastic cap back in situ.

Cold tap doesnt work


Is it a single handle or double handle faucet?
If it is a single:    1.  Remove handle via setscrew the side of the handle          (possibly under a decorative cap with the company name)    2.  Unscrew the packing nut holding the valve cartridge in    3.  Remove cartridge and access washers
For double handle    1.  Remove decorative cap on top of handle with a think screw driver.    2.  Remove handle and packing nut holding the valve stem in place    3.  Remove valve stem and body to access washers and o-rings.

Remember to turn water off at the source prior to doing any work. Replacement is just reverse of removal and don't forget to use a washer grease on all washers/o-rings when reassembling.

Does water continusly pour on clothes when it dries them ?


The inlet valve is where the water comes into your machine, top behind. The cold water valve is probably stuck open. It should open only when there is voltage across the valve. Check if wires are fitted tight. It could just be clogged inside. If you can remove it, you might be able to take it apart and clean it. Just make a note of how parts fit together as you are taking it apart. Clean all parts with old toothbrush and reassemble. Before you reinstall, connect it to a garden hose outside. No water should come out when you turn the hose on. If it still fails, just buy a new valve.
  1. Unplug washer, turn off water supply and remove hoses from the back of the washer.
  2. Remove the top panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
  3. The water inlet valve will be located at the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front).
  4. Remove the dispenser hose, electrical connections and mounting screws and the valve is removed.
  5. Install new valve by following these steps in reverse order. NOTE: When reinstalling top panel, make sure you lay panel on top of washer, leaving a couple of inches of room from the front panel. Then, slide panel towards you (front of washer) so that the top panel slides into the mounting clips.
