Question about Hotpoint WMA76 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Program starts, then after a couple of minutes it stops and display says 'On'

Have tried turning power on/off, and have restarted 3 times but it never gets past about 2 minutes before stopping altogether. The display then just says 'On'. It will let me open door, although clothes wet it is not full of water. Machine is 3.5 yrs old.

Thanks

    Thanks for reply - forgot to look back on here as in the end my boyfriend took the top off the machine, then reconnected the circuit board etc and all is fine again. We think that in the years we have had it the vibrating had made something come loose behind the digital display. So, all in all if you have this problem, save yourself lots of money for call out/repair by getting someone handy with a screwdriver to do the above! Thanks

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.


1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.

Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

Its hard to say what your problem is without more information.
If you had a lot of vibration and water from a broken hose, you may have shorted one of the sensing units or main board.

Try to clear the program by disconnecting power and holding down the start key for a few seconds. Similar to Clearing the CMOS on a desktop computer.
Hope this helps

Restart off


4.4 Restart Feature
If a fault occurs in the machine, the diagnostic system will detect it. However, instead of displaying
a fault code immediately, the machine will try to restart. If the fault was only of temporary nature,
the machine will restart and finish the cycle. If there is a continuous fault the machine will try to
restart a number of times.
This process could take up to 8 minutes depending on the type of fault. After this, if the machine
still cannot restart, the fault code is displayed and the machine will beep continuously. The number
of retries will depend on the fault that it has detected, however the maximum number or retries for
any one fault is 32 times.
The restart feature is turned on when a machine leaves the factory. For servicing we strongly
recommend that this feature be disabled.
To turn the restart feature on follow the procedures below:
1. Enter diagnostic mode (Refer to Section 4).
2. Press WATER LEVEL DOWN so that the low water level LED is lit.
3. Press POWER to turn the display off (the 5 leftmost wash progress LEDs will be flashing).
4. Press POWER to turn the machine on.
5. The machine can now be tested on any cycle.
To turn the restart feature off, either repeat the steps above or switch off the power to the machine.
The restart feature can be permanently programmed in to the machine's memory. When in
diagnostic mode press and hold ADVANCE down at the same time as pressing WATER LEVEL
DOWN. A long beep will acknowledge the setting has been retained in EEPROM. Press POWER
to retain selection as with size switching. To remove from the permanent memory, repeat the
above procedure.
Note: This feature is designed as a service aid only and should be left on in the customer's
home. To return to normal operation, and to reset the restart feature to the factory setting,
switch the machine off at the wall or disconnect from the mains supply.
4.5 Recycle Feature
The recycle feature, when enabled, will cause the machine to continuously repeat the cycle that
has been selected. At the completion of the spin cycle the machine will power off briefly then
power back up again and will start the cycle programmed.
This feature would be useful to help identify an intermittent problem, and would be best used if the
machine had been taken back to a workshop for service.
To turn the recycle feature on follow the procedures below:
1. Enter diagnostic mode (Refer to Section 4).
2. Press WATER LEVEL UP so that the Medium water level LED is lit.
3. Press POWER to turn the display off (the 3 rightmost wash progress LEDs will be flashing).
4. Press POWER to turn the machine on.
The machine can now be tested on any cycle.
Note: This feature is designed as a service aid only and should be OFF in the customer's
home. To return to normal operation, and to return the recycle feature to the factory
setting, switch the machine off at the wall or disconnect from the mains supply.

Hi, If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off. NOTES: ■ After 4 minutes the “Sd” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the “F/21” error code will be displayed. ■ Press STOP two times to clear the display.
Possible Causes/Procedure: 1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. 4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. 5. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7. 7. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 8. Replace the pump.

Water is not pumped away, or stops in the middle of a cycle and displays one of a several error messages


Recall the error codes by activating the Automatic Diagnostic Test Mode to determine the cause of the problem. Select any one button, except Power, Start, and Stop, and follow this:
Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds

All of the indicators on the console will light up for 5 seconds while 88 is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display. If not, repeat the step. Let us know if it cannot be activated.

The program then checks for any saved error codes after 5 seconds. List down the codes and post it back here. The console indicators will turn off then on with the 88 displayed if no error codes are recalled. After 5 seconds, the automatic test begins. The program performs a four-minute automatic test to check major washer functions. Press the same selected button in activating the automatic test above to advance through the automatic test steps.

  1. C0: The motor goes to a slow spin.
  2. C1: Warm water fills through the fresh dispenser and basket floats then disengage.
  3. C2: Cold water fills through the bleach valve for 10 seconds.
  4. C3: Hot water fills through the fabric softener valve for 10 seconds.
  5. C4: Warm water fills through the detergent valve for 10 seconds.
  6. C5: Agitates for 15 seconds.
  7. C6: Recirculates for 10 seconds.
  8. C7: Drains to engage basket and drain further for 10 seconds.
  9. C8: Drains and spins slowly.
  10. C9: Coasts to stop.
  11. Press the Stop or Power button to cancel/exit the test.
Inform us about the result of the test for the repair guide if necessary.

Your motor/clutch combo is on the way out. The motor is overheating and turning off. Cools down and restarts.
You need a new motor/clutch combo or a new washer. I do not recommend another GE.

jenkle, F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. There is a couple of things you can try. 1. Unplug the machine for 2 minutes and see if the error returns. If it does, try activating the auto diagnostic mode. With the washer plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any key except power, start and stop. Here's what you do; press/hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press/hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press and hold for 3 seconds. If you did it right all indicators will light and 88 will appear in the display. If there are any faults, they will then display, look for a F-60 through 68. This will confirm the board is corrupt. If no faults are found the machine will go through a five minute automatic test cycle. To stop the test, just press stop/cancel. Check your owners manual and see how long the board is warranteed.
