Ok have you checked the carbon brushes in the motor to see if they have worn?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
yep, they are about 1'' long - this almost a brand washing machine
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Bit strange how its not giving an error code as it should do really.

How long have you left it for when it stops?

Try it again but when it stops leave it for about 10 minutes or see and then see if it starts to flash the lights then.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
sometimes i leave it for hours and it doesnt flashing the lights
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
any way i putted it again to spin cycle as u suggested and ill wait for ten minutes as we continue to check other things
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok if its not flashing an error code and it does it on the spin and the brushes are fine then its more then likely the control board at fault here.

As there isnt much in these as theres the motor, pressure switch, heater and water valve so if you have checked them then all it can be is the control board on this.

These do fail as ive replaced quite a few in the past. Not sure what there like in Israel but in the UK they come blank and have to be programmed up with either the hardware key and smart card which Hotpoint sell or Hotpoint themselfs have to do the repair as they program it up with there laptop.

Sorry its not looking like good new but its looking like the control board is the fault here.

how do i reset a new pressure sensor? it is digital one...
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

You cannot reset it as theres nothing to reset on a pressure sensor im afraid.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i thought it was an pressure switch problem so i bought an replace sensor.when i plug in the new one it is acting different: it only pumping water out and then stops completely.does it make any sense?
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

So if you put the old switch on what happens?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
everything i told u before was with the old sensor
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
when i put the new it only pumping out the water and stops all together
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
by the way, it is almost 20 min and it is not flashing (with the old sensor)
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

This sounds like the control board is the fault here. As its not reading the correct frequency from the switch so it sounds like each switch is giving different frequency signals to the control board so the control is looking like the issue here im afraid.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
any particular electronic part in the control board? triac? transistor? mov? diode?what is the signal which the pressure sensor send the control board?zero volts for empty and 5 volts for full?
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Thats something we dont go down to on the boards im afraid. We just replace the boards if faulty. Im afraid we dont repair componments on there.
