    Stopped half way through the cycle but kept filling with water - flooded my kitchen overnight - woke up to an inch of water all over the ground floor of my house!



    Now fails to drain properly - can't find filter to check that; where is it?!!



    It does drain eventually if I put it on the fast spin cycle.

Hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

Could be a blockage in the sump, small item of clothing (sock etc) stopping the pressure switch activating. The pressure switch itself could be faulty or the hose between the pressure switch and pressure chamber could be broken, causing air to escape and therefore the switch not being activated to switch of valve. Most Hotpoint machine come with 5 years parts cover.check out linkhttp://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/hs/pages/content.do?keys=REGISTER_YOUR_APPLIANCE:PAGE.

I have a Hotpoint Ultima WT960. The soap drawer doesn't empty the fab con during the washing cycle. The drawer itself is not blocked; I have checked. The fab con is left in the drawer and clothes smell...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Please do not take this as criticism but often a clean of the softener part of the drawer misses the most important bit which is the little tube down which the softener and water siphon. It is normally under some sort of cover or cap - and blocked! Here are my general guidance notes on the subject ;-0)

Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catch underneath or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
---------------------------------------
The mould is not uncommon in a damp environment, for instance if the washer and dryer are in the same cellar or room where the air may not be particularly dry. This was so where we lived in the UK but now the washer and dryer are in a drier environment.

I hope these help your problems!
Good luck,
John C

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

NOT FILLING PROPERLY


have you got the drain pipe going up to about worktop level of machine?
if the drain just goes downwards then the water just runs out as fast as it comes in. get a sililiar situation if you put drain pipe too far down a standpipe - then a syspon forms and water drains out
