Came home to a flooded kitchen, had put an uneven load in. Water continuing to fill the machine yet error h20 on the led. Eptied water out. Turned off machine at mains. put more washing in and turned machine on. As the water came into the machine the error h20 display came again and just started to fill the machine. Water drains out ok when cancel button is pressed, but no more cycle takes place. The machine computer is stuck on this error, not believing that the water is coming in, but it is. have checked water pipe not kinked, water pressure is good and its definitely coming into the machine. Please help

H20 is a water warning. The machine THINKS it has no water coming in (Hence it continues to fill and fill because it can''t see the water). 99% of the time, this is a blocked rubber pipe that goes to the pressure sensor. Water in the drum fills the bottom of the rubber pipe and as the water rises, the air pressure in the pipe increases, which operates a bellows device in the pressure sensor. If the pipe is blocked, the pressure sensor won't operate and it will continue to try to fill until it times out. There COULD be a wire off the sensor or a wire that goes to the sensor loose on the main board, there could even be a failed component on the main board, but all of these scenarios are ar less likely than a blocked pressure sensor pipe. Take the lid off, pull the pipe off the bottom of the sensor, blow down it hard and this may well clear the blockage. Put the pipe back on the sensor and test. Come back if you need more advice
Your washer has a bad water valve or fill censor telling machine need more water then to much water sends a flood warning shuts down so will not flood your home look for small clear tube coming from tub to a type control hose may just came off
Hi H20 on these washers is a filling problem. What you need to do is make sure the water supply tap is turned on the hose at the back isnt kinked up. Take the fill hose off and aim it into a bucket and make sure the water pressure is good. If thats all ok then you will need a multimeter and test the coils on the water valve and if faulty the valve will need to be replaced. Check them and see what you find. But the H20 error code is a water filling problem.
According to the Hotpoint error code list H20 indicates to check taps and pressure of incoming water..
So make sure you have adequate pressure of water at the valves, low hot water pressure can cause problems..
Also what I would do would be to check the filter located in the sump hose at the rear of the m/c,\this can leade to a sticking water level s/w..
Hope this helps.
Plz leave feedback.
Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding.
If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
