THIS MESSAGE COMES UP ON THE DISPLAY


See my other reply to your request. It took me less than 2 secs on a search of your listed model to find a manual. One thing it says in the troubleshooting section is that if it fails to start with something showing on the display is to press and hold the start button for at least 3 seconds and the machine should start.

Hotpoint WDF740G Dryer not Very Hot


Most likely to be either that the capacitor is defective which starts the motor slowly at first and then picks up speed or the drive belt is worn, usually this happens when the drum has clothes in it otherwise it looks as if it is operating normally

Could be that the belt has broken and triped the belt safty switch. If you reach into the dryer and rotate the drum in a clock wise rotation and it moves extreamly freely. It is probably the belt.

'test' displayed on washing machine


After pressing different buttons and waiting 10 to 15 seconds after turning the power off, I have finally found the solution.
When you have pressed the "Start/Cancel" button to start your wash programme the LCD shows "test".
You must then press the "Start/Cancel" button which will give you the normal temperature and washing time and then importantly you must depress both the "Start/Cancel" button with the "On/Off" button which will give you a different LCD message and then it will automatically resets itself.

ALL THE BEST!

Hotpoint CTD80 Tumble Dryer F03 error


hiya
sounds like you will need a thermostat kit and possibly a heater unit, if your getting them shipped to oz you will probably use them. i would change the thermostats first as this will more than likely be the cause.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj.


p.s if its still broken this time next year i'll come and have a look just waiting of my visa :)

Tumble dryer not drying


Either dryer element has failed, thermostat for drying or the drying condenser fan not working.

There are two heating elements and the top one is for drying.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62 (Tumble drying issue).


no the steam from the dryer part comes out of outlet tube the same tube were the water comes out hotpoint washer/dryers use a condensing chamber which allows the steam to cool down a pass through it as water does and through the outlet pipe
