Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
With some Hotpoint (Indesit) models the program dial rotates continuously when there is a fault and the fault number is indicated by a series of flashes from the 'mains' or 'door lock' LED. As I do not know the light situation I will guess at one of the most common causes! I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Here is the Hoover site where you can download an instruction manual. http://service.hoover.co.uk/manuals/?Section=2 I had no idea Hoover made washers, dryers, or combo units. They only sell vacuums on this side of the pond.

Hotpoint BWD12 Program Knob keeps turning


You may get a similar problem with too little amount of washing as a coat for example sits in one place and the machine sees this as an error.

My indesit washer/dryer model w10 ,is not working.the programme dial keeps cliking round wont start a programme or take in water.


probably a main module fault but worth while checking for continuity thro the heater and that the pump and filter are ok. the idea is that when a fault is detected, the dial will click round indicating a fault but usually it is the module itself. expensive part. not worth repair
