Hi Team, A friend of mine has an '06 TE 510 with very low hours. He is 50 years old and extremely meticulous with his maintenance.We were out on a ride yesterday,and the oil filter cover and gasket/o ring came out as he rode along,draining the oil and thus seizing his engine. There was oil all over his boot and spattered all over the swingarm.The cigar shaped filter was out and resting against his boot.Both he and I were were wondering if this has happened to anyone else with this particular model,or if this is a one off "freak" mishap.Please note that my friend is an engineer by trade and has a very sound background in all things mechanical,and this leaves us both baffled. How tight is too tight when it comes to these 2 small bolts?Would this be covered under the factory warranty,or is he going to have to face the full cost of an engine rebuild?As you can fully appreciate,this bike was purchased for reasons of longevity.The bike has less than 30 hours on it,and is pampered and WAS in mint condition. Has this happened to anyone else? Any help would be appreciated. Sincerely, Andy From New Zealand.

Hi mine does exactly the same! I have to call in my washing machine technician more often (he told me this would happen with a top loader as opposed to a front loader, boy was he right!!) and he cleans out the drum. Mostly it is the fabric softener which is too thick. I water mine down to 50/50 and I do another spin after my final wash. I also empty the filter of water at the side/bottom of the machine. This annoying problem is caused by the way the drum turns on a top loader as opposed to the front loader. My top loader cannot heat water automatically either like a front loader, and I think this also adds to the problem as hot/boiling water would dissolve all that soap/fabric softener. Hope this helps.
Check your belt. The pullys may be loose also' If you own your home look into getting a home warranty. Cost about 350 a year but covers almost everything from pool pumps, plumbing, electrical, appliances, etc. I have had mine for 3 years and it has probably saved me 5000$. Washer died, i paid 50$ for the service call and done. Pool pump died, that ****** cost 350, paid 50 again..done. Had a major plumbing issue, took them about 8 hours of labor and i paid 50 bucks. It is priceless. Herhttp://homewarranty.firstam.com/e is a link to the company.

This sounds like a faulty pcb and/or inlet valve. see links for prices.
meatballs77 - If you have warranty (the machine is less than 1 year old which yours is) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to replace... Hotpoint should be able to fix this - this should be free. call 0870 4422 510
Rememer parts are free up to five years - but there is a £90 callout fee after the first year.(unless you extend the full warranty)
btw...the thermistor can be found easily by tilting the machine on its back. It is mounted to the back of the drum housing. I removed mine after getting a "tE" error and cleaned it and replaced...no problems since!
