Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
This problem is usually attributed to a pressure switch problem. The pressure switch is located under the operator console behind the load size or water level knob. This controls the fill level of the wash tub and shuts off the water inlet valve when it reaches the appropriate level. The pressure switch usually has an electrical connection and a small air hose attached to it. In some cases you may not have a defective switch at all. The air hose can come loose and fall off, or develop air leaks. Check the air hose to ensure it is properly connected to the pressure switch. If it is not, it can easily be reconnected. To prevent it from slipping off again, place a small zip tie around the hose at the point where it connects to the switch. DO NOT over-tighten as you may damage the small pressure switch fitting. Just make it snug enough to keep the hose from slipping off. If the hose is still attached, check the entire length of hose from the switch to where it connects to the wash tub for any splits, cracks, or holes. If you do not have an air hose problem, check the electrical connections to make sure the connector tabs are not corroded and you do not have any broken wires. If you have checked all the preliminary items, and still have problems, replace your pressure switch. If you post back with your complete model number it would help in providing part numbers if needed. I hope this helps you.
