Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440, Rinse Hold, Time Saver and On/Off light flashing

My machine occasionally freezes. It usually occurs during the final spin stage - and the machine can only be reset by unplugging it. I've spoken to a hotpoint engineer (by telephone) who suggests that the fault code displayed (ON/OFF light, Time Saver & Rinse Hold flashing) indicate a short somewhere. It's completly intermittant, and has not improved despite cleaning out the filter bowl, pump, standpipe etc. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a) what exactly this fault code indicates? and b) what repair(s) are needed? Thanks for your help.

    Update:
    Thanks Richie,
    I've removed and inspected the control board, cleaned the switches with switch cleaner, cleaned all contacts and inspected all wiring for any signs of damage - machine back together and after 3 successful washes the fault is back!
    I'll contact hotpoint tomorrow to arrange a service visit to get the board changed.
    Thanks again for your help and advice,
    B/Rgds,
    D.

This is typical of a control board problem.
About 60% of the time they can be repaired, but it's easier to replace it than keep testing.

If you are competent at electrical repairs, then read -on, otherwise order a replacement, and have it fitted.

Isolate supply.
Remove top cover by removing screws at top rear, slide cover rearwards.
Control board is on right at the front.
Test connections - remove and replace all connections, checking for signs of arcing.
Check main wiring loom to motor for integrity and damage.
If no signs of damage, remove control unit board, and examine for arcing or poor contacts, overheated components or damage.

If everything still looks ok, a replacement control board should be fitted and the machine tested.

Hope this helps.

Check first the thermal fuse.

Test heating element to ensure is not grounded, and staying always on. Test the fan and ventilation system.

If you find no fault in there , then test the timer control board.

My hotpoint aquarius wd440 has flashing lights


First of all try cleaning the filter inside the back as described by others if this does not work there is a filter in the top. how you clean this is quite easy. all you do is remove the top of the machine by undoing the 2 screws at the back then pull top top backwards when you have removed the top you well see a large metal casing on the left if you are looking from the the back of the machine the filter is in there to remove the casing you pull the small pipe off then undo 5 star headed screws then gently pull the casing off noteing that there is a large pipe at the front when you have remover the casing you will see the filter (the small pipe you removed at the start fits on this filter) clean the filter then put it all back together.

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440 Error


Remove the white plastic cover on the back near the bottom. To the right as you look at it their will be a black concertina pipe with a hose clip on its top edge. Undo this and pull the pipe downwards to reveal the filter. There will be a plastic ball inside (which is supposed to be there) remove this and clear out the cr*p.

Re-assemble as removal.

That should fix it
