Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Water intake does not stop


there is a pressure sensitive control that is activated by a small tube running from the bottom of the tub up to the top of the machine
as the water in the tub rises ,air that is trapped exerts pressure on a diaphragm in the sensor
the pressure is set by your selection of the wash load /level
when that pressure is reached the sensor pressure is overcome and the switch is activated . as a result the inlet water solenoid is shut off and the wash program starts
now knowing how it works , check for the small hose is not full of water when the tub is empty, the hose is intact and not cracked or broken and the pressure switch is operational ( disconnecting the hose at the tub and blowing air into it ( like blowing up a balloon) will activate the switch
if that is working ,the next point ti check is the solenoid that switches of the tap water with the machine on as if you are doing a wash the water will start to flow . blow into the tube and the switch should shut off the water flowing into the tub and start the wash cycle
if the machine starts to wash but the water still flows then it is the solenoid that is faulty
fix is a replacement unit

Washing machine will not fill with water


Check your inlet valve. Shut off valve on wall, switch off machine & see if the water comes full flow. Check the filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out. Refit carefully. Would be good to shut your wall faucet when your wash is over. An easy fix

Pl click if helped.

Washing machine doesn't stop after time allocated


Possible suspect of the inlet flow, the pressure sensor or the program controller.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

H20 is showing on the display screen of my hotpoint washing machine. I'm aware this means water but I'm wondering why this is displayed?


Possible that there is no INLET pressure or water flow to the machine, check the inlet filter and valve, check for good flow to the valve if the hose is disconnected. If not it needs to be checked if the panel board is showing error due to memory fault..

It is a Bosch 6 Classixx 1400 series and at the moment it keeps coming up with the code F18. Unfortunately we no longer have the manual and wonder what this code means. (Or perhaps you could direct me to a...


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
