Hotpoint washing machines have a number of digital settings on them that allow users to determine how long a load should wash, how quickly the load should spin, what the temperature of the water should be and how long the washer should wait before automatically starting. If you have chosen settings that you do not want or that you do not think would work well, you can easily reset the washing machine so you can reselect the settings.

Locate the "On/Off" button. You can find the button on the left side of the control panel.

Press and hold the "On/Off" button.

Release the button after three seconds.
