The most likely culprit here is a the pump, which may either be blocked, or broken.

You should be able to get access to the inside of the pump through a small hatch on the front panel of the machine at floor level. Beware - as you open this, really quite a lot of water is going to come out, so you'll need tomething to catch it, and you may need to shut the cover a few times if your container fills up before the machine is empty.

Once you've got into this space, remove all the loose coins which have accumulated there. If you think you found enough to block the pump and stop it working, put things back together and see if the machine is fixed.

If not, turn off the cold water supply, and run the machine in tumble-dry mode for a few seconds at a time while watching the pump impeller (looks like little fan) in the back of this cavity.

If it doesn't start whizzing round of it's own accord every time, then you need a new pump motor. These are cheap, readily available on the net, and straightforward to fit.

If the pump appears to start and run OK, then check for kinks and blockages in the hose that goes from the drum down to the pump, and in the drain hose that goes from the pump out the back of the machine. Finally, make sure that where the drain hose plugs into the standpipe (of whatever fitting is used in your part of the world to connect to the domestic drains), air can get in freely.

Door Locked. Cannot open. Washine inside.


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Hotpoint fault?


Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.
