Hoover Vision HD 1400 8Kg Washing Machine; Flashing lights ?

Hoover (hotpoint) VHD 8142-80. (vision hd 1400 rpm 8Kg) washing machine. Domestic circuit breakers tripped during wash cycle (towards end of cycle, during drain). Upon restting CB's the machine now has flashing error codes. The start button light is continuously flashing and when pressed for more than a few seconds the timer saver, sensitive care and stain blaster lights are flashing continuously as well as the 30' light on the timer. Note: the delay start does not light at all. I have manually drained the system and cleaned out the debris from the access plug at the front of the machine but the same codes remain.

Can you help decipher whats going on? Can it be reset?

Just a note for all reading this, the flashing codes are just basic codes, 3 flashes indicates a drain issue, but it does not mean a faulty pump, this is the engineers answer.. In the long run, you could end up replacing the sensors, the motor and and the pump and still have same problems. The real cause of issues in this machine is it doesn't work well. Replacing the pcb board is actually the most usual issue and usually fixes everything else.

Forget Hoover they are extorionists

This fault seems to occur when the rather oversensitive filter in the pump is blocked and the machine can't drain. I've had mine for a few years now and whilst the machine is really solid and does a good job otherwise, the pump and filter are a real pain. Going to get mine replaced. Hoover will cover the cost of parts and repair for about £115.

How much does this problem cost to get repaired ... was bought for £120 (secondhand) a month or so ago .. looked in immaculate condition and new ... door security light is flashing ... is it worth getting repaired .. am gutted :-(

I don't know about the circuit breaker tripping fault, but pressing and holding the start/pause button for a second or two pauses the washing machine in what ever it is doing (flashing a fault code in your case). Pressing the start button again should return the machine to it's pre-pause state.
