Question about Washing Machines
Hi my washing Machine is stopping a few minutes into its cycle with an F10 error. I have looked on the support sites and it is suggested that there is a problem with the intake or exhale of water from the machine. This is strange since the machine takes in water and will empty. Can you help?
If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

SOURCE: Error message
Hotpoint’s are designed to go into test mode when the start button and the on/off button are pressed at the same time. If you are stuck in Test mode, simply hold the start button down until it comes out of test mode, then hold both the start buttons and the on/off button down until you see ‘D:end’ (or similar message)."

this is caused by a build up of old detergent and limescale.there are some industrial strength descalers around.wpro descaler is one.add the sachet to the drum with no wash load.pour in a kettle of hot water(not boiling)and leave for thirty minutes.then put washing machine on a 60 degree cycle and allow to run right through.you will need to repeat approximately every three months

Hi, Ok first things first where is your machines waste pipe connected? If it connected to the sink trap check there first by undoing it and check that there is nothing inside stopping it from letting the water out..?
If this is clear then have you lost anything? Sock? ETC....? Can you hear the pump? And is the water draining but not spinning?
If you cannot hear the pump running then it will more that likely be the pump as they are a magnetic pump which fail quite alot. If the pump is running then it is going to be something you have lost which will be located in the sump hose underneath the machine whic comes from the tub to the pump. Take it off and check and clean as nesscerary. Or last but not least it could be the fact it is doing everything but not spinning ( no drum action )? Check the motor carbon brushes if they are low then this will cause the problem or the motor has failed!....
Good luck and let me know ho you get on??
