    Following up on this - mine did it in April, and then stopped, and has been sporadically doing it the last week. Hubby pressed the delay time button whilst it was doing it, and no more beeping! No idea why that fixed it, but it has.

    Update - The issue was solved with a replacement pump! Bizarre that the pump worked mid-cycle but not a full drain! The repair guy said he'd never seen the issue before either. In any case, just pleased it's working and I haven't had to shell out £100s on a new machine! Cheers!

    Hi Andy, very old topic I know but did you ever source a quiet pump for your hotpoint? I only ask because I baffled as to why any manufacturer would go to the expense of fitting a lovely quite brushless motor and leave the pump component as was. It would be nice to track one down and fit without to much bother, my machine is so quiet up to the point when it sends any current to the pump then it's eardefender time.

    Sound like a sensible idea, I will get a surge protector. So far the machine has been behaving and I am hoping I have just had a run of bad luck...Fingers crossed....Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for your help. Luckily it still can be used as its just the temp button and not any other. The cost of a board is stupid and they are very hard to find, so theres no offers anywhere. Ill keep a look out for a used part on ebay. Thanks again

    That's reassuring, thank you very much for the clarification!

    I initially missed the section mentioning these bolts, feeling like a complete idiot. Now the machine is pretty still and silent, thanks man. I'm wondering though, after several uses with bolts in and hence the machine vibrating like hell, did I reduce its lifetime?

    Yeh but given it's a cold wash, I figured the temp sensor wouldn't come into it... I've got a repair guy calling out tomorrow morning. As much fun as it's been dismantling it every night this week, I've run out of patience and time! I'll revert back and let you know what the outcome is. Thanks for all your advice!

    I had to take the door off to remove the clips that held the drain pipe on the pump. It's all back together now, I tried the drain cycle and, low and behold, it pumped some water out into the pan. Not the full amount, but most of it. I've just put it on a 15 min cycle and I'll see what it does...

    Hello. That sounds like the motor. To troubleshoot a noise when the drum turns you need to take off the drive belt and make sure it's not catching on the drum pulley at the back. Then spin the drum by hand again. If the noise is still there it's related to the drum, drum bearings or something stuck in the drum. If the noise has gone then it has to be the motor or in some rare cases even the drive belt.

    Cotton, Wool, Delicates .. which is your feather .. the triangle sign, is actually a chemical beaker with a thermometer in it .. so SYNTHETICS. Theres a deep water icon, or soak and I'm guessing the sprials of 2 different intensities represent wash strength, ie normal or heavy duty. Also the weird one north of the wool symbol that also says 30 degrees, no clue, cant see clearly enough to guess, but its sort of looks like a cotton but just kind of a scrunched icon to fit in the space. I've never owned one, and am only half German by blood only,

    The resoldering of the diode worked perfect! Bought a USB powered soldering iron from Amazon for £6 and it's perfect for soldering electronics, bought a diode for £3, cheap repair, thank you!

    Thankyou Andy for all your replies....heres the final update and solution.(FIXED) Having swapped the pcb, the problem continued.So i took out the motor and stripped it down.It turns out the circular magnet behind the rear motor bearing had cracked in half.... (tachy?) It was a 7 pin motor which had failed and i only had a 6 pin motor from a 1200 express.This would cause a conflict with the wiring harness on the 1400...so I took out the 6 pin plastic template and rebuilt the motor using the 7 pin from the broken motor....All the internal fittings are identical.Put the motor back on the machine and it is fully working.My only caution is to keep the maximum spin speed to 1200 and not run it at 1400..playing safe...just in case!

    Hi, I took off the back panel as you advised and straightened it a bit then I could put it back properly. Hopefully the gap won't reappear, it looks like it won't. Thanks a lot for your very helpful input!
