Hi, i have the same machine..i have a feeling it does this annually to make you call an engineer. to reset it do this; hold the 'start' button until all lights display, then press 'start' again. hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off. it doesnt always work 1st time so keep trying, good luck x

This problem occurs when you acidently lean on the start and on/off buttons at the same time,it is not a programing fault that is designed to occur yearly.
but the listed solves do work.

Just had the same problem as the above with "test" programme problem.
I've just tried the above solution and it works - absolutely brilliant.Thank you so much. Hotpoint had quoted me £89 on-off call out fee.

Just arrived from a weeks holiday abroad with 3 suite cases of washing to find the same problem.

Tried the suggested fix and it worked first time - Excellent! can't thank you enough.

SOURCE: i have a hotpoint ultima

SomeHotpoint's are designed to go into test mode when the start button and the on/off button are pressed at the same time. If you are stuck in Test mode, simply hold the start button down until it comes out of test mode, then hold both the start buttons and the on/off button down until you see 'D:end' (or similar message). Now try a normal wash programme again and hopefully it should be fine. If it goes into test mode by itself, then it may be an indication that there is a real fault, or a faulty programmer board. hope this helps.

My Hotpoint Ultima keeps displaying an F10 fault and doesnt spin correctly. However, if I then switch it to a rinse and spin cycle it seems to spin OK.

F10 meanswater level pressure switch not sensing correctly, there could be a blockage in the switch hose or chamber, or the switch could be faulty.

Hotpoint wf860

the applionce is in demmo mode and running a test cycle so you need to cancle the cycle first by holding the start reset button until all the screen iluminates(88:88) now you need to disable the demo mode by holding the start cancle and the on off buttons together until you see D OFF in some cases you may need to hold the button to the top left of the screen and the start and on off buttons but this will sort it

Hotpoint Ultima WF860 stops every time with 1 second to go

This problem is caused by the heating element not working.The machine won`t spin & finish because the machine knows it hasn`t heated the water during the wash programe but clock will still count down.this is what we were told by a hotpoint engineer.the callout charge is £89.98 from hotpoint this includes parts & labour. 27/7/07
