  1. Whirlpool has issued a recall notice on some of its models of washing machines due to a potential safety concern. It affects certain models of Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines made between October 2014 and 2018 and it is feared more than 11,000 machines in UK & Ireland may be impacted. A flaw with the door-locking system may lead them to overheat and potentially catch fire. Whirpool launched an urgent recall of certain models of tumble dryers over fire safety fears in July of this year. If you think your washing machine might be affected, you can check by calling 0
  2. Hi Everyone, I have a VERY old Hotpoint washing machine - a Hotpoint 9545 Electronic 1200 DE LUXE which I've been told is about 30 years old! It's soldiered on relentlessly but I think the motor may have packed up as at the weekend there was some smoke/burning smell coming from it. I've checked a spare parts web site and I was able to find a motor for the Hotpoint 9546 but not the 9545 and I was hoping that someone could tell me whether the motor could still be used on my 9545. I contacted Hotpoint but they couldn't help me as the machine was discontinued ages ago so maybe a techn
  3. The Hotpoint manual provides guidance and a diagram for removing the detergent dispenser tray, which says to lift up and pull forward.. I've not seen one of this type before, instead of the usual tray that pulls forward, it has a swinging grey front door opening to 90degrees revealing the white plastic soap and conditioner tray. As the external parts are all grey, it is easy to see which bit of the white innards should be lifted and pulled forward as instructed, but no amount of tugging and wiggling has got it to move. Am I missing something here? I can't see any obvious clip or spring device
  4. Hi, I was trying to find similar problem at this forum but couldn't. Around two weeks ago my washing machine has started stuck in first washing cycle. Machine fills and drains, doing 2-3 spins and again fills and so on. After playing with washing setting I found out that machine works fine if I choose to wash it without heating water. I thought that this is because of limescale on the heating element, but today I took of this element and it looks almost like new. What else can cause this issue? Shall I try to replace heating element? Would appreciate any help! Thanks in advan
  5. Hello! I have a Hotpoint HE8L493 works fine but after I dropped my phone beside it (how fate makes us find things out eh) then ran my hand on the left bottom leg of my washer and I felt a bit of wetness/moisture and I wiped it with a tissue. I just finished a cycle of wash then and after that, I tried loading another cycle and I placed a tissue beneath it. After the cycle I had a look at the tissue. It isn't enough to soak it fully nor partially but there are some wetness on it. I don't know if it is condensation or a leak? It's too small I think to be considered major leak or even
  6. Hello everyone, New to the forum so if this is the wrong place please excuse me. So I received this Hotpoint hv7l130g after my old Indesit died as my dad had it spare. The machine ran though two usual washes successfully but after we switched to to "baby" mode for kids clothes it died on me. Symptoms: Door was locked and had to be forced open. Any program chosen to be run tries to start, I get a lot of clicks from the interlock and then the door lock light flashes. I assumed that the interlock had failed so I replaced it today with a new one but the problem pers
  7. Hi Hoping someone can help have a washer dryer that won't drain I have replaced the pump,pcb and the pump wiring but it has made no difference apart from the main module (which I understand needs programming if replaced) in the bottom of the machine I can't think what else it might be all pipes hoses are fine it's like the pump isn't getting any power
  8. Newbie post, got a slight leak. Had washer over and found end point ... But before I reach for screwdriver, does anyone have advice about where this 'might' be originating from/seen it before. It's not a great deal of water but the staining at least shows me I am not dreaming. Door seal is grubby but seems intact. Model: wmal 621 6kg Images: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1l0Ihm2JDe_IySR7bXDqgk2Yj7IJT8fNs Or https://drive.google.com/file/d/1as8MGu0zX8n76ElR_yrl07St3bDqwTyr/view?usp=drivesdk Thanks for your experience.

  9. Our washing machine keeps filling with water, even when not on. Not sure if the filling is linked to the dishwasher or not. It did flash and beep H2O. I’m assuming it figured there was a water problem but not sure if that is an error code too? It will also start a cycle but then just stop, making a whirring noise. If paused, it sometimes starts again, others not. Is this the motor? Help! I’ve got two kids and a mountain of washing!!
  10. Washing machine has started to make rattling noise on free spin. Can anyone suggest what the problem may be? How much a repair would cost?
  11. It's a July-2015 washer-dryer. Clothes often come out more dirty than they came in. They are covered with some very fine gray fiber that we take off using a roller sticker. We tried: - Cleaning the big rubber seal of the door - Cleaning the pump's filter (the one you have to pop the front lower lid off and turn it out, it was actually quite clean) - Running the secret "A+B for 7 seconds" self-cleaning cycle - Running an empty wash with washing machine cleaner We get the fluffy stuff even if we don't run a dryer. We are careful not to put lint-generating clothes in it (but
  12. I have Hotpoint WDL540 G (UK) C washer/drier which is very ill. The only functions it will perform is to pump out, operate the door lock, and the filling solenoid. When filling, it does this in a sequence of short bursts, then nothing. I have done resistance checks on the motor, heater, and sensors, and all seem OK. I have tried running with pressure sensor pipe disconnected (it is not blocked), and with the sensor connector removed. In desperation, I have replaced the main control module, but without success. There are no fault indications on the lights on the front panel. I am an experienced
  13. Just trying to decipher Hotpoint Washing washing machine numbers Our washing Machine is a WMUD843P. So, OK I predict the WM=Washing machine, the U=Ultima(which is what it is) but what is the 'D' for? - its not a Washer/Dryer model ... and I predict the 8=8KG, the 4=1400rpm spin speed, the 3= (im not sure , could it mean revision of the model?) and the P=Polar white (the colour of the machine) what do you reckon?
  14. Firstly apologies if you can't assist with dryers, I did check and I didn't see anything to say you didn't but at the same time I didn't see anything to say you did. We have a Hotpoint TCL780 Condenser Dryer, it recently stopped getting drying clothes and just ran cool. I did various investigation work (basically I googled it!), everything appeared to point to a problem with the thermostats. I bought a couple of replacement thermostats off eBay, fitted these but no change, the dryer still didn't get hot. I did a bit more digging and it suggested I replaced all 3 thermostats rather
  15. Afternoon, Our Hotpoint WML730 Aquarius washing machine started making a noise during the spin cycle yesterday, this coincides with 'grit' appearing in our water, whether it's related or not I don't know. When I got home from work the water was clear but small speckles of grit were found in the detergent tray, we cleaned this out as well as the filter, where I found 55p I started a quick wash and the washer filled up and the drum turned for a while, as soon as it got to the spin cycle it stopped. I powered the machine off a few times and tried various programmes but nothing appears
  16. Has anyone else experienced glitter like stuff on there washing from a hot point washing machine
  17. Hi, I am just wondering how an end user gets to find out if there is any new firmware updates from the manufacturer to improve the operation of the Washing Machine or add new features or iron out bugs or new wash programmes or modify the already ones stored on the flash memory on the circuit control board. Say in my case I bought a Hotpoint WMUD843P washing Machine back in 2012 and it has the slot on the back where the smartcard would go in- how would I know what firmware my washing machine has and wether the manufacturer (Indesit) has bought out any firmware (if any) since I have bought my
  18. I have an elderly Hotpoint Aquarius WMA33 washing machine. It works fine during "wash" cycles and water pumps out okay but on "rinse and spin" water gushes out of the soap powder dispenser. It happens after the rinsing phase; just as the spin phase begins. When I tried it with the soap dispenser removed, I could see the water was coming back up from the drum - and there's quite a lot of it. At the same time there is a small amount of water coming out of the rear drain-pipe, so the pump appears to be working. Any ideas?
  19. Hi guys, Totally new the forums. I've just come across you whilst trying to work out whether the behaviour of our brand new, supplier-installed Hotpoint washer/dryer is normal or not.. I've taken a short video here: For context, this is on the 40° cotton cycle, about 150 minutes (two-and-a-half hours or thereabouts) into the cycle. It had been doing this on repeat more-or-less the entire time. It seems as though the machine frequently gets stuck in this cycle of filling, rotating the drum a few times, pausing, and starting filling again to repeat. You never actually see much in
  20. Hi! I've got a problem with my Hotpoint WDL520 and looking for advice. I recently put in a load of towels (read: heavy, wet) and left it to wash and dry while I went to work. I came back and the machine had flipped a breaker (I think when starting the spin cycle - there was still water in the drum, but not much soap). I manually released the door lock, turned the socket off, reset the breaker, and turned the socket back on. The program came up fine, I switched it to 'pump out', closed the door, and the breaker flipped again immediately (with the door re-locked). I had a problem a couple mon
  21. Hi there! I have a hotpoint Aquarius wdl540 (wash/dry), and this has not been happening in every wash, but happened enough times to get me worried. Does anyone know the reason why the cycle sometimes starts normally but keeps going forever and won't switch to spin automatically? I noticed this few times and the only thing to do was to pause it and manually change it to spin. Spin works fine, it's that automatic finish to the wash and move onto spinning.. Than you for any help and guidance you can give me!!! Jools
  22. can anyone tell me about this the machine will not fill
  23. here are some of the 'mods' I have done to our washing machine, (after wifes approval of course) Machine: Hotpoint WMUD843 Bought September 2012: http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x361/Andyr_45/DSC_0039.jpg Cut/Filed extra bit of plastic on door fascia where hinge is to allow porthole door to open back further http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x361/Andyr_45/DSC_0035.jpg Adjusted water level of washing machine. By cutting the top off the Water Level switch (very carefully with a hacksaw) and adjusting plastic screw (a couple of turns slowly clockwise) this will put more water i
  24. Got a WMUD843 Washer and the program that gets the most use daily is the 60'c Fast wash - however im peeved that I cannot select 90'c on this programme only 60'c/40'c/30'c for times when say I have some towels and want to give them a really good wash at high temperature at 90'c - other than that I can select 'cottons' @90'c but the programme lasts for hours, not knocking that much off if i press the 'time saver' button - i know you would need extra time to heat water in drum up to 90'c but Id settle with say 1hour 10 mins wash at 90'c - i think that would work and i just wish they gave you the
  25. Without going in to too much boring detail: I have a hotpoint aquarius washing machine. It doesn't have a filter at the back, just a filter within one of the tubes at the back and the only way to access it is to use pliers to remove the big clip holding it in place (sorry I don't know the technical terms.) A coin made it's way in to my washing machine. I am aware that if the coin is stuck within the inner tank this could cause a lot of damage to the machine BUT if the coin has already made it's way down into the filter (in the tube at the back) is there still a risk of damage? i.e. if I don
