Hi

Ok just to double check the error code if you number the lights going down the side of the soap dawer with 1 at the top. Is it lights 1 and 4 thats flahing?

If so have you done anything to the washer?

Hi

Ok this error code is F09 which is an Eeprom set up error.

Im sorry this isnt good news but when you get this fault its nearly always the main control board at the back at the bottom. As the Eeprom is basically the brain on the control board. If it fails it can lose its program and thats when you get this error code.

To cure this you will need to replace the control board. Now if you buy a new board they are sold blank so you need to also buy the programming software which in this case isnt worth it as both parts are more then a new washer.

So for a new board fitted it will be cheaper to get a fixed price repair from Hotpoint for about £120 roughly. As they will supply and fit the board and then they will need to program the new board up with there laptop.

But another way i you can try this website as they sell refurbished board for your machine which come programmed up ready.

Sorry its not good news but them lights flashing is telling you theres a fault on the washer and its the control board going of the lights you have flashing.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
