The page has been faulty since the day this was posted. Should be expired
Has this expired? Link does nothing and if you can manage to browse the machines there's only one washer and it's not this one. Mind you site seems to be struggling in general at the mo
Hotpoint circuit board failed on my dryer, it costs over £100 for the board, and comes un-programmed , you then need a one use card and some sort of programmer. A Family members washing machine failed, they mentioned the board, but replaced the washing machine, as the call out charge plus parts ,meant they might as well get a new washing machine. Buy cheap buy twice (actually you probably end up paying more over the years because of parts)
That's annoying, it was literally a 5 minute job on the hotpoint, the pump wasn't even bolted in, it just slides in/out. Two hoses and one connector and I was done. The drum bearing on the dryer was harder though, I took the whole thing apart. Not sure what modern Hotpoint is like but certainly our older models have been fine and we don't really look after them.
Not as simple to change a pump on newer machines as lots of them now have solid bases with no direct access. The front of the machine with the door seal needs removing.
