H2o error We have a hotpoint ultima washing machine and every now and then when selecting a wash programme it flashes H2O with the water running through the tablet draw but not into the drum and only works again after turning off at the plug to reset it, whiy is this? what does the H2O flashing mean?

    I get the H2O error message on my ultima WF865 too and a tap symbol also appears. In the manual it says to check for kinks in the inlet hoses if the tap sybol is flashing. I've checked and there are no kinks. There doesn't seem to be any guidance in the manual about a non-flashing tap symbol or the H20 message. All help/suggestions appreciated. Tomorrow I'm going to disconnect the hoses and see if there is a blockage but if it can be solved without me making a mess, that would be great.

I have a hotpoint Ultima WT741, and it doesnt stop filling up whilst in use on a wash/spin and says H2O, and then overflows out the top of the washing machine. Whats the matter with it?

If the flow at the inlet valve is good and then the water comes into the system. Now if the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- does not activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch off the INLET VALVE , it will overflow. So the fault is the water level sensor and showing the error H2O.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Set wash program ,wont start ,there is a tap on display plus it flashes up H2O

H20 means a water inlet problem.
Check the inlet pipe/s are not restricted or kinked.
Ensure that the pressure is adequate.
This cold weather has caused some washer hoses to freeze up.
Hope this helps.

Machine fills with water then stops with H2O flashing in the display

Check water inlet valve (valves) for no fill or low water pressure.

My Hotpoint Ultima WT960 is in the middle of a program and on the rinse cycle and on the screen is flashing H2O the door is locked with my wool wash inside. What do I do.

Check the program that you have it set on for the wool cycle. Some washers have where you can "add water" in the rinse cycle. If yours has this feature, I would try that also.

Your exit hose behind the machine has to go over a certain height before it goes into your wall standpipe or sink. The height is marfked behind your machine, approx 3 feet above ground level. The hose should put about 3 or 4 inches into the standpipe, & not fitted airtight. Post back later if the code stil comes up...........

image_bubbleanswer_04.gif I recently had the same problem with my Hotpoint Ultima WF860P and after some investigations, I found a disconnected tube linked to the pressure switch beneath the top cover was the cause of the problem. In short, this tube forces air to the pressure switch and cuts off the valve feeds.
