I realised that the washer was not filling properly with water!  So I pulled it out from the wall and noticed the cold water fill pipe had been squashed and had a kink in it so not enough water was getting through.  I remedied this by pulling the pipes through the under sink cupboard and securing them with gaffer tape,  Hey presto the machine now works again!  Hooray :D

i came across a hotpoint had error E220 it turned out to be the pump housing was cracked and leeking water back to the motor windings and they had gone short and the brushes on the drum motor were worn away replacing the pump rear section and the brushes and resetting the error {hold in power btn power up at the mains} cure it i then had to come back too it and replace a faulty 1Amp triac and its driver transistor on the machines micro/control board because although it worked aok the triac already had been damaged and the increase in duty etc of the new pump tipped it over the edge replacing these two parts cure it for good that was over a year ago and no new problems

drum bearings are leaking oil into the drum..they need replacing.

There are an huge number of things that might make a machine do this, so I will cover what I suspect are the main culprits. I'm basing this on a guess that if you power the machine on, but don't start a cycle, then it will sit there happily until it starts a cycle (If it trips out before you even tell it to do anything, then I would suggest that you probably have a controller module fault). Before you start, check the tub shield gasket (This is the big grey rubber between the door hole and the drum. Push the drum backwards a little, look for rips or tears (run your hand around the entire circle of the gasket, there could even be a tear in the side or top, a little out of sight). Presuming my initial guess is correct, it's probably time to start by taking the top off the machine (I can't remember if this model's top is held on by a couple of torque screws, hidden behind a couple of plastic covers about the size of your little finger nail on each side of the lid, or a couple of screws that are clearly visible on the back of the lid, screwed through a plastic protuberance and into the chassis - One of these two options will be correct!). UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS BEFORE YOU PROCEED! Having removed the 2 screws, you may need to give the front of the lid a sharp tap backwards, to release the 2 plastic hooks in the lid from their holes in the chassis, now the lid lifts off. We are mainly looking for water, or marks where water has been (usually a little chalk deposit unless you are in a very soft water area). Obviously, if one of the following checks turns up something, you will have to replace the faulty component. Look around generally. Pay particular attention to the pipes that lead from the water inlet valves to the soap drawer, gently wiggle any rubber pipes looking for cracks or loose connections. Look down the back of the machine. If the main bearing is failing, then there may be rusty water splashes on the drum or inside the chassis where water has come through the rusted bearing and splashed about as the drum drive wheel has spun. While you are there, look to where the power wire comes into the machine, nearby, you will find a white cylindrical start capacitor for the motor (It's an object about 3 inches long and about an inch and a half in diameter. Are there any distortions in the plastic that might have been caused by overheating or burn marks (Brown plastic) or scorch marks where the spade connectors attach? Take a general look around for wires hanging off, while unusual, it is not unheard of for a wire to become dislodged from a component (There should be no spade connectors just hanging around, they all have a home somewhere). Have a good sniff around, do you smell burning or burnt plastic? Does it lead you to some damaged component. Still nothing found? Go to the rear of the machine, at the bottom you will find an oval-ish panel at the bottom of the rear with a cutout for the empty pipe to exit through it, held on by about 4 screws. Remove the panel. You can now see the motor, the empty pump and the lower half of the drum (Not quite far enough to see the centre of the drive wheel, but almost). Once again, look for water, or water signs, particularly, look at the centre of the drum, if a bearing has failed and water is leaking, there will probably be a rusty water track visible from the centre of the drum, running down until it drips from the bottom (Classically, the drips may have fallen onto the motor). If these signs are there then I'm afraid the cost of repair is probably going to write off the machine. Check the empty pump (The thing about 4 inches inside the body with the empty hose attached). Look for signs of water or burning damage. Do the same with the motor, spin the drum drive wheel around to spin the motor - does everything sound OK? Check the motor for signs of water shorting or burning. Again, have a good sniff for burning components. If by now you have still found nothing, you may feel competent and able to do the following, BUT TAKE NO RISKS. You can plug the machine back in and set a program running and watch what happens inside, look for water or sparks DO NOT TOUCH OR APPROACH the machine in this condition. Have someone looking in the back while you look in the top. Ensure that neither of you are close enough to touch the machine while you do this.

HI,
First of all, is the noise only heard when the drum is rotating or when the pump is running? This really makes the difference. Sometimes an object can rub on the outer tub during rotation and cause the same noise, other times, I have found foreign object within the pump and caused the same problem. So when is the noise heard is very important to lead you in the correct direction.
I will be glad to assist you if you like I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump 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 complete and generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

how old is the machine? suspect it is caused by pressure switch not working. probable cause is small tube that goes to pressure switch is blocked.

Hotpoint... • Answered on Jan 07, 2011


hello, check the filter if ok then check the drain hose that connects from the pump make sure it's not kinked does it connect to plastic pipe and straight out through the wall make sure this not blocked.if it connect under the sink make sure your sink not is blocked if the pump has failed check the wiring to the pump hope it helps
