Hi have a hotpoint Aquarius 1400 WT540 and when it finishes

Resolved Question:

Hi have a hotpoint Aquarius 1400 WT540 and when it finishes spin cycle it starts to begin filling up with water again? Have cleaned out the filter on the bottom right of the machine but still continues filling up after final spin. The Fspin light is on when it completes the spin cycle but it then continues filling back up with water.

KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is it ?

Customer:

about 4 yrs

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, do you see any flashing lights ?

Customer:

no flashing lights just the normal fspin light on

KevinWhiteJA :

so it drains fine but after draining completely it will start to fill again?

Customer:

yes drains ok but it then starts to fill back up with water so I have to quickly press stop so I can get the washing out

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, pull the washer out and then take the rear off...clean the drain pump assembly completely...after this lay it on its side 45 degrees so that if there is water anywhere it comes out, this will reset the pressure switch...after this is done run a spin cycle and let me know if the problem is stil lthere

Customer:

ok so how do I get back to you as this will take a while?

KevinWhiteJA :

I can wait here if you want

KevinWhiteJA :

You can get back here when you are done...I'll wait

Customer:

ok do I take the pump competly out then?

KevinWhiteJA :

just take the rear off and then clean the hose connecting the pump

Customer:

KevinWhiteJA :

Check this image ...this is the pressure switch...make sure it is cleaned and all dried up in there at the rear

Customer:
