i have a hotpoint aquarius wf541p it turns on & the program starts but will turn its self off arter about 2/3 mins if i unplug it and plug it back in arter 30 secs it will start again for anouther 2/3 mins then stop again
When you say it turns itself off do all the lights on the front go off or do they flash?

Ok im with you now,
Theres only a few things that will cause this, Either the main control board or the mains filter.
What you need to do is remove the top and look at the back of the washer were the power cable enters the washer. There you will see a wiring block going to this. Check this and see if its burnt. If it has then the main cable will need to be replaced and you will need to retag the wires as well.
But if that's all ok then its more then likely the main control board at the back at the bottom at fault here. For this you will need to replace the board and that will sort it from there.
But check the mains cable first as you may find its just that at fault.
Let me know what you find.
