Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hotpoint Washer This is a long shot, but someone has offered to sell me a hotpoint washer for £50. She says it sometimes cuts out during the cycle. Can anyone tell me if this would be a good buy, or have any idea what may be causing it. I am unsure of the model, I only know it is about 6 years old and a linen colour. Not much to go on i know but if any one can advise me.

Cutting out in cycle could well be just the door interlock
however on delicates and wool programs, the machine stops still full of water and you then have the choice of drain or spin. many people confuse this and think it is a fault. price of £50 is about right

Have a hotpoint aquarius wml540 that is stopping on the rinse cycle, when it stops the rinse light is on and the red lock light is flashing, is this an error code?


WASHER WILL NOT RINSE:
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
To check the water valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
TIMER
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle

Lights flashing on Hotpoint BHWM129


I had a similar problem with my Hotpoint BHWM 129 washing machine. The washer would not spin or drain properly and all the lights flashed after a wash cycle.
The solution was to pull the washer out and UNBLOCK the drain pipe which was crushed AND filled with 'gunk'. Once the crushed pipe was massaged back to normal size and the gunk was removed my problem was fixed. Not a nice job but I was going to ring HOTPOINT at £125 a call out fee so I am happy. I hope this helps someone else in time.

How do i tighten the drum weights on my hotpoint


Remove rear cover, and you will see the concrete weight at the bottom, sometimes the securing nuts work loose, or break off.

My machine will not run the spin cycles, and makes a very loud noise during the spin cycles, sounds like a bad motor or bearing?


I'm not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year man who has done his own washer repair for about 50 years. You might have a bad lid switch that keeps the washer from spinning. You might have an unbalanced load in the machine which makes the noise. The unbalanced load might also be the cause of not spinning.

F13 error during drying cycle


Hi, that indicates that either the fan motor is not working/ blocked or the dryer thermistor (thermostatic sensor) is playing up. Of course, the pcb reads the sensor so it could also be that causing the error.
