Wash machine - DST10146P Problem - After switch on and without any load in the drum, the kgMODE indicator appear, and the level load indicator starts blink the 10% levels from the mini to the MAX. The LED indicator (program selection buttons) starts rotating without stopping, staying in this mode permanently.


would it be the door interlock???EIRE

If the drum moves about wildly during use, then the chances are the dampers need replacing.
These are exacly like the shock absorbers on cars (only smaller) and reduce the vibrations from the drum.

Without them, and just relying on the support springs, the drum will bounce about untill it breaks a hose - often banging the sides during slowing down from a spin.

It is also possible a support spring has come off or broken - this will cause the drum to sag when first loaded.

Both are replacable items with the back / top off.

Had exactly the same last week - Jan 09 - and had to call out Hotpoint engineer - £99.98 all inclusive of parts - it was the main controller board, so thats under guarantee for another 12 months. all working and spinning as should be and only took around 30mins.GS :)

may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.

THIS MAY be your defective part!

BE VERY careful handling this switch because it's quite delicate!

Another snip-it:
..."Kg MODE Indicator". On Cotton and Synthetic cycles, during the first 4 minutes of the cycle the intelligent sensor will weigh the laundry and adjust the cycle time, water and electricity consumption accordingly. ...

More: The intelligent KG Mode sensor weighs the laundry and adjusts the cycle time, water and electricity consumption to suit the size of the load. This gives you the optimum consumption even if you are only washing one shirt.

The intelligent KG Mode sensor

During the first minutes of the cycle, the "Kg MODE" indicator remain on while the intelligent sensor will weigh the laundry
and adjust the cycle time, water and
electricity consumption accordingly.
• Through every wash phase "Kg MODE"
allows to monitor information on the wash
load in the drum and in the first minutes
of the wash it:
- adjusts the amount of water required;
- determines the length of the wash cycle;
- controls rinsing according to the type of
fabric selected to be washed it;
- adjusts the rhythm of drum rotation for
the type of fabric being washed;
- recognizes
the presence
of lather,
increasing, if necessary, the amount of
water during rinsing;
- adjusts the spin speed according to the
load, thus avoiding any imbalance.
