Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Hotpoint 960 is 18 months old and has develped a fault where the mains light and programmer display flicker simultaneously, and the machine cannot proceed through the programme. It does not respond to the on/off button, and I have to stop it using the mains plug at the wall. Sometimes this reset enables it to continue, sometimes not. Hotpoint arw quoting 90 call out. Any ideas please? thanks, Lindsay

Flickering lights might just be caused by loose wires in the mains plug on the machine's power cable. I would suggest checking that first - for some reason the neutral wire seems more likely than the others to come loose. There might be brown / purple marks around the terminal inside the plug if this is the case. Also try replacing the mains fuse in the plug.

While you are there you might also try plugging a normal table lamp into the socket you use for the machine - if the house cabling to the socket is defective the lamp should flicker too.

If neither of these ideas is productive, the problem would appear to be within the machine, so please ask again. Good Luck D.

My machine starts and then flashes F12 and stops working what's wrong please?


Deborah,

if your machine is a Hotpoint/Indesit the F-12 error code is a communication error between the main pcb and the display pcb. No simple fix im afraid, a new main pcb is required.

you will need to contact the manufacturer.

Error light flashing - wash & drying lights flashing.


My machine would not always set properly and various lights went on and off without reason or stayed flickering. I phoned Hotpoint as like you my warranty was finished. They told me to switch off the machine and unplug at the mains. Leave for 10 minutes then plug back in and switch on. It re-booted the control panel and last night I was able to set it properly. If it doesnt work for you I suggest you phone Hotpoint customer service (number of website) and ask if there is anything else you can do to solve the problem yourself before you pay for another service call. Failing that buy a new one!!

Hotpoint wt960 lcd screen failure


Hi, I have experienced this problem on several hotpoint machines with led display's. There is really only one solution for it! If there are no wires hanging off then the answer is in the board, And you will need to replace it. It is a non servicable part and cost around £40.00+++.
Good luck.....

Hotpoint WMA13 door lock fault


If the door locked light is flashing , then the main board probably has a fault on it, due to a problem with the motor, or the board itself being faulty.
Recommend calling an engineer.

No heat on tumble dry programme. Display flashed F 13.


You need to replace the heating element for the dryer which is positioned on top of the outer drum. Remove the top cover of the machine and locate the heater.
