Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse

During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the fron panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the main splug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if onnected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

Turned out to be the motor. Discovered this by running the machine through a cycle with the top and rear panels removed so as to watch what happened. On fast spin there was a bang, a big blue flash from the back of the motor and the house electrical trip tripped out. Reset trip, restart washing machine and it worked find again until fast spin. Ordered a new motor on line from UK White Goods, fitted it and all is right as rain.

Hello thesquiffys
Welcome,


You said,

After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!

The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:

Washer won't go into spin cycle, stops after final rinse. When I try drain &rinse it still will not spin.


If the unit does not spin correctly, this is usually an indication that the unit can also not drain. The unit will not spin if it senses a blockage or issue with the drain lines and/or pump. Try to check the drain lines in the back of the unit for any issue, and then see if you have an access panel to get to the coin trap or drain pump itself. Often socks and debris will clog up in this area and cause your problems.

We have a Hoover select 1500 washing machine. It still washes and rinses ok, but doesn't then move onto the spin cycle. But I can manually set the dial to spin and restart it. It then spins fine. I assume...


Could be but also could be rinse water valve not operating due to faulty solonoid. it does a final rinse / softner before spinning if valve faulty then no spin advance....

The 3 buttons


button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.
