Question about Washing Machines

Hotpoint WD440 has a fault: Rinse hold & Time saver lights flash continuously along with the power on/off button. Water runs into the soap tray but straight out the machine without going into the drum.Maintains this state for about 10mins then stops. What does this code mean and can it be repaired?

Check exit hose behind, this hose shd go up to a certain height, abt 2.5 feet from ground & then down into stand pipe.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD440 Wash / Dryer. When switched on at the mains electricity the "Rinse Hold, Reduce Creases, Drying Heat, time saver, dry and on/off buttons all flash for approx 5 mins, then...


The flashing lights are an error code (Which I can't quite figure, but I believe ARE associated with a blocked filter. Is it possible that the slime and mess extended beyond the filter?

Before you go throwing the machine away, Unplug it from the mains (NOT just turn it off) to allow the machine to reset and while it's unplugged, stuff your garden hose up the waste water pipe and turn it on full blast to blow any remaining debris out of the way. (Wrap a towel over the end of the pipe to soak up the spliiage as one will not fit neatly into the other).

As the Dr Pepper ad says - "What's the worst that could happen?"

Hotpoint washer dryer lights flashing


Check first the thermal fuse.

Test heating element to ensure is not grounded, and staying always on. Test the fan and ventilation system.

If you find no fault in there , then test the timer control board.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440, Rinse Hold, Time Saver and On/Off light flashing


This is typical of a control board problem.
About 60% of the time they can be repaired, but it's easier to replace it than keep testing.

If you are competent at electrical repairs, then read -on, otherwise order a replacement, and have it fitted.

Isolate supply.
Remove top cover by removing screws at top rear, slide cover rearwards.
Control board is on right at the front.
Test connections - remove and replace all connections, checking for signs of arcing.
Check main wiring loom to motor for integrity and damage.
If no signs of damage, remove control unit board, and examine for arcing or poor contacts, overheated components or damage.

If everything still looks ok, a replacement control board should be fitted and the machine tested.

Hope this helps.

whare the option buttons are if you number them 1 to 5 from top to bottom if led 2 and 4 are flaching this is a time out draining and you will need to check your waste hose for twists traps and kinks also check Filter if there is a user servicable one on the applionce and check plumbing. This is a comman fault and if you get hotpoint out to it even if it is only a day old they will charge for the call out as it is classed as user error or faulty instalation this works on all WF,WD & WT modles with 5 option buttons on the left habnd side the applionces with digital displays will show F-05 insted but it all means the same

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440 Error


Remove the white plastic cover on the back near the bottom. To the right as you look at it their will be a black concertina pipe with a hose clip on its top edge. Undo this and pull the pipe downwards to reveal the filter. There will be a plastic ball inside (which is supposed to be there) remove this and clear out the cr*p.

Re-assemble as removal.

That should fix it
