Hi, no there is no noise at the start of the cycle as i said it would be something with the program, my one year old probebly presset something because the machine was working fine untill my last wash...there are 4 lights above the little display prewash wash rinse and spin and final spin, when i turn the machine on the lights gradualy come on but the machine is doing nothing untill it comes to final spin and then the process is finished. at the start of the process the display is showing those letteres LESE or something like that and then what i wrote happens. the water is conected to the machine properly so i do not thing it's the water conection....any other advice?
Sorry for the long delay in getting to your question.
Can you post the actual model number of your machine please?
Hotpoint is the make, Ultima is the range. I need the actual model number
Thanks for that. WT741 is the model number.
I think your machine is in tEst mode.
It's the nearest thing I can think of that would look like LESE.
Turn the machine off.
Press and hold together the start/pause button, the on/off button and the top left option button.
You must press and hold all 3 together, at the same time.
This should take the machine out of test mode and allow it to work again.
Try it out, see how it goes and get back to me.
Hope this helps
Thanks for letting me know.
If you could ensure you rate my answer and not the previous experts, I'd appreciate it.
