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.

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

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryier (aquarius 1200)


i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe
