Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Hotpoint wf860. Why is it stuck in superwash mode?

The fast wash programmes either 60 or 30 mins has started showing the superwash (cloudlike) symbol for the 60 min wash or the acylics symbol when I select the 30 min fast wash. This means that the washer is taking 2 hours plus to do what is usually a 60 min wash. Any suggestions on how to reset this please? thanks

Suggestion: Plug off the wall first. Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Check out user's manual. Good luck. Also check if your inlet into the machine is not clogged.

SOURCE: "Test" displays no washing done!

Your test mode is on, maybe accidently. Press "start", "cancel", "on" & "off" together for 10 secs, you will see d/off come on the display. Do the same & the test mode comes on again.

LG front load dryer jumps from 40 min to 19 min to 5 min in short time. Any suggestions?


Dryers can base their drying time two different ways. If you are using the "dryness" settings, when you first start the cycle, the timer will show a specific time. If the contents dry fairly fast, the moisture sensors in the dryer will reduce the remaining drying time. This may be what is causing your changes. If you want a specific time on the dryer, or the dryness settings aren't getting the clothes as dry as you'd like, opt for a "timed" dryer setting, where you choose the drying time. This bypasses the sensors.

Superwash button constant flashing


I do not have a solution but also have the same issue. That is when putting on a cotton programme, the superwash light comes on at the end of the programme and I am unable to open the door as it remains locked. I then have to put it to a rinse or spin cycle as it does not seem to have spun the clothes at all.
