Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hotpoint WMD960 ultima washing maching. Switched on, it will take in water and continue and continue and continue whilst, at the same time it is going rapidly out to the drain. Although it doesnt display any error, it actually says its on the wash cycle although it doesn't heat the water and doesn't wash, instead will carry on filling and draining at the same time for as long as I leave it. This washer in under 6 mths old and have had 3 engineers out from Comet who STILL haven't solved the problem. What to do next before i'm tempted to take a hammer to it. Thanks.

I think you need to replace the timer switch, it makes those solenoids to close the DRAiN valves!

Hi,how can i reset the language on my wmd960 hotpoint ultima,thanks

1. Switch on the power and when the language is displayed - press the child lock+ temperature+ spin buttons simultaneously for about 5 seconds. Release the child lock button when other languages appear. Scroll down using temperature button-until English is dispalyed. Select using child lock button.

My Hotpoint WMD960 is less than a year old and keeps switching itself off during a wash.

If your washer is less than a year old,and you have proof of purchase, then I would advise you to contact Hotpoint direct as the washer will still be under guarantee, and anything you do to it could invalidate the guarantee.

You can contact them at the address as shown below.

Brown sludgy marks and particles on clothes.

fill the tub with only water! use pinesol and bleach! half a gallon of each run through wash cycle 3 times before ever letting it spin out! then complete all cycles that should do it! if not them you need to remove and clean under tub and re install
