Frequently Asked Questions

Why is there a light flashing on my Hotpoint washing machine?

Many of our newer Hotpoint washing machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault.

The most common are:

Pre wash light flashing

Indicates that the Hotpoint washing machine is failing to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses to make sure they are turned on correctly. It is also worth checking for any blockages, leaks or kinks in the fill hose pipe.

Wash light flashing

Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing

Indicates that the Hotpoint washing machine has considered the wash load to be excessive or unbalanced. We would recommend removing the clothes, redistributing the load evenly and retry the spin cycle to resolve this.

End light flashing

Indicates that the Hotpoint washing machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

If the wash, rinse and spin function lights all flash at the same time, this would indicate a possible blockage in your filter or waste / drain pipe.

We recommend checking your user manual as all models vary – you can also download your user manual here
