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.
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!
I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.
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
