Hotpoint Washing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

An F-05 error message means that the pressure switch is jammed on empty or a problem with pump. The fault is associated with drain out (pump blocked or restricted in some way). Small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull of the two pipes (Plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and unclip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned.

If the machine has taken in water, and not drained it out. it will prevent the door from opening.
Have you tried draining the machine, and then trying to open the door?? The easiest way it to either set the machine on a slow spin cycle, and allow it to finish that, or if your particular machine has a "drain cycle" ( this feature is not on all models) set the machine to drain, and when it has finished, try opening the door. I hope this helps?

New belts fit vary tight. You probably have the right one. It takes a lot of force to stretch it in place. Ask someone else to do it for you.

It sounds like an over temp sensor is tripping.....Make sure the lint filter is clean and no lint is blocking the vent pipe.........A fire hazard is present so be careful......Unplug the Unit while servicing the vent piping...........

It depends on the reason for the hot smell - discovering this would mean a trip to the service shop and weighing the cost of that against a replacement microwave.

Unless your Hotpoint is something special, it is likely a replacement would make sense.

It is wise to periodically measure the power output of a microwave oven by timing the boiling of a measured quantity of water when it is young. When or if the time has extended more than about 10% it is time to think about service or replacement. It is also important to keep the inside of the cabinet clean and all the air vents clear.

Using your belt, slip it under the agitator. Give a very hard yank and the agitator will pop up and off. DO NOT HAVE YOUR FACE OVER THE AGITATOR WHEN YOU PULL ON IT. It can pop up with force, and end up breaking your nose! So be careful!
