On switching on the washer seems ok, you can select whatever programme you want but when you press the start button it beeps once and the LED just flashes and doesnt start the wash. Door locks fine and i had a load in which got a bit of water in then stopped. I managed to get the door open by leaving mains power switched off to get the washing out. Unit just 6 years old but in good nick! filter on bottom kept clean regular and soap tray cleaned too Can you help? Ta

Re: wont start on any program
Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water from faucet shd be in good pressure. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

It seems that the program is locked or that there is an error , check the door switch , make sure that the switch is contacting when it is closed.
If this wont solve remove power plug from the mains and press down the start/stop button on the panel after which you must plug in the washer. It must reset to release the lock.
Check the inlet water line , check the vavle.
Hi. Are you still having this problem? I just experienced exactly the same thing with my D61 for the second time and eventually I just got cross and held down the P button for a couple of seconds and the machine beeped 3 times and the green light went out. I was then able to select the program as normal. Then, it froze on me again so I held down the button again, it reset again and I tried it on a different cycle. Now it's actually going through the cycle. It's so random (the first time I didn't hold down anything and just shuffled stuff around inside for a bit and then it worked ) it seems to be a actual fault with the programmer, so I can\t say for sure that this will work on yours or even on mine again but it's worth a try!
Starting with the rotary switch in the off position, turn it one click clockwise, press and hold on the bottom right hand button, turn the rotary switch one more click CW and release the button. The number displayed is the volume for button presses, press the centre right hand button to increase/turn off (0). Turn the rotary switch one more click CW to select end of cycle volume, agjust and set the rotary switch to off to leave set up mode.
A similar thing happened to mine. I think it starts when there is a power cut or something similar mid cycle. The solution (which you would never guess!) is the following:
Select any programme - say 30 Cottons
Press and hold any function button - NOT Start
Signal will sound at varying levels - release button when it gets to the level that you want, off in your case.
HI I KNOW IT SOUNDS DAFT BUT HAVE YOU TRIED SWITCHING THE CHILD LOCK OFF? I CANT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHICH BUTTONS IT IS ON YOUR MODEL BUT YOU USUALLY HAVE TO PRESS 2 BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME (& SOMETIMES HOLDING THEM FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS) RATHER THAN JUST 1 TO SWITCH THE CHILD LOCK ON/OFF. IF YOU STILL HAVE THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IT WILL TELL YOU WHICH BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO SWITCH CHILD LOCK ON/OFF HOPE THIS HELPS!
Electrical module fault
The “Spin Speed” indicator and the “Start
Delay” option are flashing and an audible tone
sounds. The display shows “F4” to “F16”.
• Switch off the appliance. Select a programme
and press the “Start/Pause” button once
The programme will continue.
• If the fault re-occurs, contact After Sales
Service (see “After-Sales Service”).
I'm assuming the programs are all selected electronically...then your pc board is on its way out. In this case you would have to replace the board...most electronic boards have "service programs" which you can check functions, but I'm not familiar with Hotpoint....
