My Hotpoint washing machine is stopping mid cycle

We recommend you check that your cold water supply is on. This is a common cause of your appliance failing to fill on the ‘rinse’ cycle and will result in your Hotpoint washing machine stopping mid-cycle.

On some newer Hotpoint washing machines this is indicated by using either a tap symbol or a flashing light, to advise there is a water supply issue.

Finally in some cases failure to position the drain hose at the correct height may also lead to problems of your appliance stopping mid-cycle. Check your instruction manual on how to position the drain hose correctly.

My Hotpoint washing machines is noisy and unstable

If your Hotpoint washing machines appears noisy or unstable when using it for the first time it’s possible the installation has not been completed properly.

Please ensure the protective brackets or bolts (used for transportation) have all been removed before using your washing machines. You can keep them should you wish to transport your appliance again in the future.

Full instructions on how to do this can usually be found on the first few pages of your user handbook – user manuals are also available to download manuals

My Hotpoint washing machines is leaking

As part of the manufacturing process we thoroughly test your washing machines to ensure that it will not leak from any internal components after you have installed it.

Any leaking before or during its first use is most likely due to water still remaining in the washing machines following this testing process.

Further checks can be easily carried out. Firstly, we would recommend checking the fill hose, drain hose and mains plumbing for leaks. Take care to check the fill hose connection to your washing machines and to the mains plumbing (taps) are secure.

It’s also possible for a leak to appear from your detergent dispenser, which can be caused by excessive water pressure or the washing machines has not been levelled properly during installation. You can raise the front of the appliance by adjusting the feet at the front of the machine.

We would also recommend double checking the water supply hose connections (at both ends) as well as checking the drain hose during the pump out process.

There is a light flashing on my Hotpoint washing machines

Many of our newer Hotpoint washing machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault. The most common are:

Pre wash light flashing

Indicates that the Hotpoint washing machines is failing to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses to make sure they are turned on correctly. It is also worth checking for any blockages, leaks or kinks in the fill hose pipe.

Wash light flashing

Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing

Indicates that the Hotpoint washing machines has considered the wash load to be excessive or unbalanced. We would recommend removing the clothes, redistributing the load evenly and retry the spin cycle to resolve this.

End light flashing

Indicates that the Hotpoint washing machines has reached the end of a wash programme.

If the wash, rinse and spin function lights all flash at the same time, this would indicate a possible blockage in your filter or waste / drain pipe.

We recommend checking your user manual as all models vary – you can also download your user manual manuals
