Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer

1 Answer


I went to the machine assuming the hot whites wash cycle had finished but found the 'mini load' and the 'rinse hold' LEDs were flashing on and off. The whites appeared to have been washed but not rinsed. I put the machine back onto the hot whites wash program again. Water briefly enters the machine before the same LEDs flash simultaneously again. The machine then empties itself of this water before it allows me to turn the on/off button to off and so stop the flashing of the LEDs. It was possible for me to put my whites through a spin cycle, but not a rinse and spin. Since then I have tried to run the machine empty on a normal colourfast cycle but the LEDs flash again shortly after a little water has entered the machine. Please help.

    Thank you for the easy to follow instructions in your reply. There is no problem with the water supply to the machine. The filters to the solenoid are clear and the solenoid checked out ok for circuit. Could you let me know if anything else could be the cause of the problem with my machine please.

    I have tried to run my machine again recently and have noticed some more symtoms of my machine. Although most of the time the two LEDs on my machine flash on and off within seconds of some water entering the machine, now and again the machine would go through some of the wash program, the LEDs would then activate when water is pumped out of the machine, during either of the rinse sequences. As the water is pumped out I have noticed that water rises through the plug hole of my sink to about 20mm high. I have checked the pressure switch to make sure it clicks and have also checked the pipe to it for blockages but they are ok. I found a small plastic peg (from a new shirt I think) next to the plastic ball in the sump, this probably affected the closure of the sump when water is pumped out of the machine which possibly prevented the correct pressure being attained a the right time during a program and so machine would not be able to activate the next sequence of the wash program? I then carried out a fast wash program with the machine empty, this went right to the end of the program successfully. My joy was premature though as with clothes in the machine the next wash only managed to get to the stage where the first load of is pumped out. I will check again the sump for more alien objects. If the sump and the pressure switch tube are not connected exactly the way they were before disconnection could that cause problems with the pressure switch? I have also found some slight brown marks on the 'Merloni' module circuit board (not sure if it is burned out as it is does not look bad). Could that possibly be the problem?

    my hotpoint wf250 stops in the middle of the cycle before rinse and spin. I can turn machine off and manually select rinse and spin. I have checked for any blockages, all ok! Please help as this machine is not very old.

    I have emptied the machine and switched it off to get the clothes out. I have tried putting the machine into a different programme, spin and rinse, but nothing happens and the rinses on the progress bar returns to flashing.

Check the cold water supply, either from the mains pipe, there is no water getting into the machine, if water is there up to the machine check the solenoid for circuit, to do this unplug from electric, remove lid, and test the two wires on relevant solenoid, no circuit means faulty solenoid, (test with the 2 wires removed from solenoid) take care note position of wires to put back properly answer above based on info given

Washing machine displays an LF error code. Started last week during whitest whites cycle in rinse. I cancelled and just did rinse to finish my load. All other cycles worked and yesterday all started...

LF = Long Fill

LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

lf means long fill check your fill hoses and make sure the water is comeing out. sounds like a problem with your inlet valve and/or your water from your house is not right.

The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
