    Hi rocks, could I have a similar problem?? I have a Hotpoint Aqualtis washer.. I start a wash, everything is ok until it gets to the rinse/spin cycle, then lights flash on panel above start/pause button on right of front panel, as well as power button.. Also machine begins to take in water constantly and I have to switch machine off at mains in case it overfills..

    Sorry if this seems a bit long, just wanted to give as much detail as possible!!

    Thanks for any info. rocks.. :D

    Thanks for getting back in touch rocks.. :D

    Lights on left..

    On/Off button..Spin speed selector lights up to 800rpm..Wash intensity setting indicator lights up..

    Hope that helps!

    As a side note, I did what you asked lukeobadoa to do and remove all the plugs on the PCB one at a time.. Same result after reattaching everything carefully and powered up...

    Will a hammer and blowtorch help it any??!!

    Hang on this is confusing the on off button is on the right hand side on the left is 4 /5 buttons ie wash enhance mini load rinsehold etc that is the ones I need. Ignore the ones on the top centre. On the left they flash 1 and 3. Or 2 and 4 etc they relate to the error code. On off always flashing when there s a error fault just ignore them.

    Hi,
    At the end of the wash cycle my machine (Hotpoint Aqaultis AQXLL 149 PI) stops and the on/off button and the pre wash, wash, spin end lights etc continuosly flash. I have tried to count the number of the flashes but it's well over 20 flash's. Does anyone have any idead what the fault could be?

    Many thanks in advance
    Chas

    My problem much the same flashlips. My machine starts up fine, then stops mid way and all lights start flashing consecutively - not all together but one after the other on a constant round. It does drain so I can open the machine but won't rinse or spin. :evil:

    If every light flashes its the c17 cap on the pcb.

    Does that mean it needs to be replaced or just tightened? Sorry if question seems daft but this is not my strong suit

    Replaced. It's on the pcb. Do a search on here for it. The part costs about 20p.

    Rocks hi, could I just tap in to your knowledge here please? Hotpoint WD420, lights 1, 2 & 4 = F13 dryer ntc? Does it do a self check when switch on? i.e would it bring up this fault even if the dry function was not selected? Also, have you any idea what the resistance value of the sensor is when cold? Many Thanks. Rich

    F13 can be fan not turning , fluff in fan , heater blown ,one shot open curcuit of fluff filter at the back of the heater box blocked. Try those first.
