exit the DEMO/TEST mode, press and hold down the "On/ OFF" and "Start/Cancel " buttons until "d off" is displayed.

It basically means the machine is in demo mode,

if the machine will not come out of d mode then it is highly likely the info regarding the main module below is correct.

This normally means main module has failed (back of machine). We stock it at £65.88 inc postage (exchange). To order go to our site at and put WF860 in the search box or call us on 0115 9652118 Tony EMW Electronics

Programmer fault? Hotpoint WF860 1600 spin?

Hi guys, For the last few washes, I've noticed our washer starts increasing the cycle time, instead of decreasing? We use the quick wash 30 degrees. Is it possible to reset the machine/programmer or is it something deeper, like a faulty board perhaps? Any help is greatly appreciated....
