Customer Question

When I press the on button on my Hotpoint WF541 washing machine, all the lights start to flash. After I press the start/cancel button, a few minutes later the lights stop flashing and I can press the start button and it works fine.

It's a Hotpoint Aquarius WF541P - the serial number on the sticker inside the door isNNN-NN-NNNN I just want to know if the flashing lights are an error code that I need to sort out or if they are just telling me to check the filter (hopefuly something that simple). As I said in my initial question, it still washes ok!

Expert:  Bryan replied 9 years ago.
I would check the filter It may need to be cleaned. do you have a manual with this? I'll see what I can find out but most of the time this is covered in manual.all machines are diffirent and difficult to find what it means on diffirent machines. I"ll get back to you, thanks Bryan
