I have the same problem with my washing machine, i thought i check some forums before ordering a new inner valve ... dont buy a inner valve !! ... its definitely the clear tube behind the soap draw ... thanks everyone for you much appreciated help !!!

Brand new machine , powered up and after a short while H20 flashed up . Turned out the inlet filler pipe must have been partialy kinked when I pushed the machine into position , restricting the correct amount of water to start the wash . I could see water entering the machine but it wasn't enough . I tried it again after carefully pushing the machine back and it was fine....

Our washing machine kept just filling up with water, H20 actually means no water was going in. We unblocked the filter at the bottom of the drum where all the crap is. Now works perfectly.

washing machine will fill,when it stops filling about 2minutes later it will flash h20 and will not do anything else.

I had the exact same error and the drum would over fill and pore out from the soap drawer, but this resolved it.
the vaccum switch not connected. Remove lid. Just behind soap drawer is a round component with a clear tube conected to the bottom of it. check it hasn.t come adrift.

Mine had come adrift re-connected and working fine.

could be overfilling. could be vaccum switch not connected. Remove lid. Just behind soap drawer is a round component with a clear tube conected to the bottom of it. check it hasn.t come adrift. Also if paddles have been replaced. check where filler hose meets drum for any clothing that might have slipped through previously. good luck

I recently had the same problem with my Hotpoint Ultima WF860P and after some investigations, I found a disconnected tube linked to the pressure switch beneath the top cover was the cause of the problem. In short, this tube forces air to the pressure switch and cuts off the valve feeds.

drain filter possibly blocked or pump blocked when spinning this throws the water back up into the powder drawer very alarming to see I think the filter is behind the front kick plate to empty machine place drain hose in a bowl lower to floor does it flow fast or slow if slow sump filter /pump blocked manually empty the machine into the bowl remove front kick plate unscrew filter NOTE there will still be water behind the blockage clean filter and pump reassemble make sure pump impeller is free to turn if not a new pump is needed
