20 Most Recent Hotpoint WMTL80 Top Load Washer Questions & Answers

first thing to check would be the agitator dawgs if you can free spin the agitator when the unit is off then this is what you would have to replace think they cose about 5-7 dollars on the other hand if you set the unit to spin and the unit spins and then you use your hand against the side wall to slow the tub down if the tub slows then you would have a faulty clutch both of these are assuming that the motor and transmission are working properly and in order to check both of these you would need to remove the cabinet if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Chances are the wiring underneath to the transmission solinoid has broken. You'll have to drain the washer by laying the drain hose on the floor in a pan. Then turtle (flip on it's side) on a pad/carpet carefully and remove the back panel and trace the wires with a flashlight, If you find the break you can try a heavy duty **** splice but my experiences tell me adding wires to lengthing that cable is a better choice.

Yes, I work for GE what you need to do is to resent the appliance. Something should had happened with the computer of the washer. Just unplugged the machine for 40 seconds. You can unplugged or turn off the circuit breaker for 40 second and plugged back in. Select a normal cycle and let it run.

f-05 usually relates to either the pump being blocked or the sump of this particular model being full of coins, color catchers etc.

first keep it simple, ensure outlet hose is not blocked or kinked....but if not follow these steps

  • To sort this isolate from mains
  • take off back inspection panel.
  • tilt machine forward- get sum1 to hold it for u.
  • The sump is the black hose attached to drum.
  • place a basin under this and loosen jublie clamp using star head screw driver/ 8mm socket,
  • pull sump downwards and remove any blockage.
  • note the plastic ball is part of the sump assembley.
  • refitt the sump again and tighten clamp, pull down firmly on sump to ensure fitted correctly
if there was nothing in the sump it is sumthing jamming the pump, hairgrip, nail, etc.

tilt machine forward as above with a basin ensuring isolated from mains power
  • pump is attached to other end of sump hose, right side of machine as you look in the back.
  • using flat screwdriver lift plastic tag up and slide pump assembley to the left releasing it from base of machine
  • clip of plastic cover from top of pump
  • remove wires from pump
  • u should now be able to turn pump around so u can see 3 hex head screws
  • remove screws taking note of the position of pump
  • remove pump and clear blockage
  • reverse steps to reassemble
if this does not sort it poss a new pump needed

The User Manual for this model was of no help ... other than to suggest unplugging the unit which you already did ...
I could not find specific error codes for your model ... but F06 on Hotpoint washers in general have two definitions for F06:

F06 - Door lock fault
Issue: Washing Machines door cannot be opened or closed / when the door is closed the machine the programme will not start.

F06 - Program selector dial

Since you are having door issues ... then I would say the door lock is indeed the problem.
Check to make sure there is not any debris in the door lock insert, but my guess is that is not your problem.
It could be the latch on the door or the lock switch mechanism in the machine housing. Odds are it is the locking mechanism

Here is a Hotpoint You Tube on how to replace ... but it is not for your specific model


Good luck with your troubleshooting!

with the gas still off, remove the offending part, and replace it. Depending on the model, they can be easy to replace, or some are difficult. Some have no wires, others will. It's possible the part can be repaired, but finding someone with the know how and tools to do so will be difficult at best. Hopefully you have somewhere reasonably close that sells parts.

From the information you have supplied, I suspect that the door interlock switch may be faulty. But without more information, it is difficult to be certain.
I hope this helps?

Is it in demonstration mode ..... look at your instruction booklet to stop demonstration mode. They are similar but vary with model types and numbers.

Unplug it from electric socket to see if that unlocks it.

It seems that the door cannot be locked.
Check that the door closes correctly and you hear the click when it closes. If this is ok and you cannot start any cycle but continue hear clicking, then you have a problem with the door lock latch and needs to be replaced. Here is a video of how you can do it after you buy the spare part, according to the model and serial number of your appliance. The video is for a different brand of washer but don't worry the process is exactly the same!
