Expert:  Michael replied 12 months ago.

Hi I m sorry for the delay power outage ;-(

Expert:  Michael replied 12 months ago.

Thank you for that information.

Please try one thing for me it will help me to be sure what is wrong.

Please unplug the washer fro 30 full minutes.

Expert:  Michael replied 12 months ago.

Once that time has past, then plug it back in and let me knwo if it turns on all by itself stuck in that mode?

Or what happens when you start it then?

This may fix the issue if the control board simply got a little confused as can happen on occasion when power surges happen etc.

If all is well Great!

But if not please let me knwo the outcome of the test. and I will tell you how to fix this one ;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

i ve just done another wash an it seems to stop on the drain cycle and stops ...all the lights flash but you can still open the door
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
the problem is not solved and i have given you a rating please can can you help
Expert:  Michael replied 12 months ago.

Hi , I kind of figured.

This means you need to clean out the drain lines and make sure the drain pump is working as it should. If not you may need to replace that part but its super easy to do;-)

Let me know on that and I will recommend a great place to order that part.

I will help you if you need me to replace that part.

If you dont get to it before the weekend I will still be here.

Thank you for your patience;-)

it shows that you are
are you in a different time zone?
Expert:  Michael replied 12 months ago.

Hi Im sorry with the holiday weekend here I haven't been on much.

I just now did receive the messages I believe.

In this case you need to check your drain lines, But if they are clear as they likely are and the filter if you machine has one. Then you need a new drain pump motor. It's electric on this machine and easy to replace with only one wiring clip and two hoses to remove ;-)

I will help you replace that pump.

The best place for you to get a new drain pump (and this is a common part to fail) is: http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/

Its best to call to order this part because they dont list all parts on their website.

Also they will ship the same day if you call for sure ;-)

Phone: 0844(###) ###-####a href="http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/" target="_blank">Home » Parts » Brands » Hotpoint.

In any case I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly at this time so I can add your question to my priority list so anytime you text me here I will see it immediately. There is no additional cost for rating kindly ;-)

Have a great day!

Tech Michael
