WF540 - Won't work and rinse hold and wash enhance lights flash?
I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF540 1400 spin which is almost three years old and seems to have suddenly developed a fault. If it is plugged in it basically randomnly turns on, the wash enhance (button 1) and rinse hold (button 3) lights flash slowly, the on/off button flashes quickly and it makes a noise (but does not seem to fill). Any ideas? I have tried having the power off for over 15 mins as the man at Hotpoint said that it might reset itself but that does not work. I also tried to start a normal wash but within the first minute it reverted to doing the above. The man at Hotpoint suggested its probably a programming fault, not sure why it would develop it after three years! Any suggestions/advice as they want to charge a small fortune to come out!
Thanks in anticipation of any advice.

Hi ya, just a quick suggestion, have you cleaned the filter on the front of your machine?? My machine did this and it was only when i cleaned the fluff and the 5 pence pieces from this filter it stopped, Hope it helps

Probably needs the filter cleaning.
Remove lower rear panel.
Remove large black hose onto drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump itself.
Please rate my solution.
check pump/filter/outlet hose for blockages. if ok, check pressure switch (disc shaped item at top of machine with 4? wires and a tube) by blowing into it gently - should hear clicks, then blow into tube to pressure chamber - should be clear.
You might have to take the pump off and clean out the debris in the line theres probably lint, change and other things in the line. Take the lines off and run a piece of wire through the lines to make sure their clear.
The next step should be the pump out. If it is not pumping check your pump filter for obstructions. Check the drain hose and also your drain in the wall. If all are clear you may have a bad pump. You should have an error code coming up when the machine stops also, please let me know what it is. Thanks and I hope I can FixYa.
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,.
