Good afternoon,

You have reached Justanswer UK, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches experts in various skills to customers.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

To help me better assist you, please provide its complete model number (from the label/rating plate located inside the door).

sorry but I was working from home and an emergency came up. I was saying all my numbers on my dial have worn off. My model is a Hotpoint WMFUG 942 9kg load .4 years old

No problem.

Thank you for the model number.

If you don’t mind, please allow me a few minutes to check its schematics and then type the answer.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Thanks that’s okay

There are two options: either you can write the numbers manually or click here to buy a new dial.

If everything from top of fascia is rubbed off then click here to buy a new fascia panel.

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.

I hope you enjoyed your experience with Justanswer UK today.

Have a wonderful evening.

Thank you.

That is fantastic I will order either the dial or whole panel just waiting for my husband Kevin to take a look. I cannot thank you enough for your help and information.

You are very welcome.

Does the dial and panel come in white? And will it have instructions ?

Sorry, for that you will have to check with Ransom-spares as this part was not available with Hotpoint and on few other websites.

If you are willing to replace it yourself then unplug it and remove the top off the appliance.

Then you can remove the fascia, then remove the control and then you can replace the fascia panel.

Thank you I will double with them I just want the dial

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

No thank you . You have been more than helpful. I have written the number on for now with a permanent marker I also painted over with a sealant so fingers crossed. Best regards.

Perfect, Cheers

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
That should be 5 stars

I think you left it as 5 stars but then changed it to Bad service but that is not a problem.

Have a wonderful day.
