This is for standard hotpoint washers.

F12 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps.

this is for hotpoint lcd evo1 washers.

F12 - Communication error - Book a service engineer.

this is for hotpoint lcd evo2 and v4 washers

F12 - No communication between cards - Book a service engineer.

When we switch the washing machine on at the wall it is setting off the trip switch. Ive changed the fuse in the plug and its still shorting the system. Any ideas what the problem could be as it was only...

Hi Robert, you obviously have a short somewhere possibly water has leaked or dripped onto a circuit or terminal, if it happens as soon as you turn the machine on then it would be from the mains filter to the door switch. If the machine starts to fill it could be somewhere else, the only safe way to isolate an earth leakage is with a test meter and the power turned off. Sorry not a lot of help.

Hi my washing machine door wont open, feels like the lock has broke ??

hi have you tried turning machine off at plug for a min then power back on put on a cycle press start. wait till it starts to fill and press stop and hold down the reset button till it beeps and wait till door unlocks. Or a quick way to open the door is unclip the foot kick stopper at bottom front of machine and pull the emergency door open which is a thing peace of hanging plastic. if none of this works try starting a cycle then press stop soon as it starts to fill and turn off on machine not at plug. hope this helps.

Hi I have acer aspire 4350G, it WAS WORKING FINE till morning. iwhen i just swtiched on the laptop now, its screen is blank and power light is steady. CD-rom light is flashing but ther is no sensation in...

Here's some ideas to try. Try them in order and see each one goes. I tried to start with easiest...

  • With it powered up use the key combination to switch between external monitor and built-in display. At least on my Acer it's Fn+F5. The icon looks kind of like an empty square next to a filled in square separated by a vertical line.
  • Hold down power button for ~8 seconds until it turns off then wait about 10 seconds and power it back on and give it a second to see if it will come back to life.
  • With the machine powered off remove the battery. Leave it out for for at least 10 minutes (longer the better actually) then put it back in. Power on machine and see what happens.
  • If the battery removal above didn't work take out the battery again and try re-seating the memory and/or hard drive and/or optical drive (but not at the same time)

Flashing tap icon and h2o

Might be a kink in the hose. Turn off water disconnect from machine then make sure water comes out of hose when waterturned on.( Put into bucket or similar to test) If water is flowing ok then you need a new inlet valve.
