Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ113D697

Recommended Posts

I have a hotpoint Aqualtis AQ113D607(E) washing machine, purchased in 2012.  The manufacture date is August 2011.

Fault: It stops 30% of the time with 1 minute remaining on the wash timer. If left unattended it can sit on 1 minute forever, (longest we left it was overnight), continuing to turn the clothes over.
Workaround:  The workaround is to pause the wash, turn the dial to rinse, and resume the wash.  The rinse takes 45 minutes but completes every time. 

The machine stopped working completely a few months ago, which was due to a split in the ribbon cable from the door controls.  While waiting for a replacement door to arrive, I purchased a second hand machine, manufacture date October 2011.  The second machine also exhibited the 1 minute issue on 30-40% of its washes.  After replacing the door, wish a used complete door, the first machine worked, but continues to have the 1 minute fault.  

There is no fault code displayed.

Hotpoint claims to have no known issues with these machines.  I have found a few people on forums with the fault, but no solutions.  It was suggested a heating element; Hotpoint service (Facebook) suggests this is unlikely to cause this issue.  Would it actually get as far as 1 minute remaining if the heating element was at fault?  Or would it report an error?

Can anyone help?

Yes heating element is one of the possible causes for being stuck on 1 minute. Getting stuck on 1 minute is a failure of the software design in that there is a fault, but the software isn’t detecting it. 

However, don’t just buy and replace the element. You have to establish whether it’s faulty or not by testing it with a test meter. Being stuck on 1 minute is an anomaly that shouldn’t happen and can have various causes.
