Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hotpoint washer model #WLW4700TCLAD top loading washer. Old machine, but have never had a problem with it. Water does not stop filling washer when it gets full. I know this is a pressure switch. How do I diagnose the problem? Thanks for your help.

Not always the pressure switch itself.
years since i saw one of these machines so just take this as guidence.
remove back panel and pressure switch is i remember on rhs near top - it has a small diameter hose going to it. remove this hose and substitute another hose of the same diameter. put on fill and pressurise the hose by mouth. you should hear a click and the water will stop. this localises the fault. if the water does stop, then the fault is:
split in the small diameter hose.
blockage in the small diameter hose.
blockage in the air chamber - the part the other end of the small hose is connected to

fault is more often one of these three rather than the pressure switch itself

The washing machine just stops at the rinse cycle. It does a buzzing humming sound and there is no water coming out. The machine is a concept ll model # CDM 2000 RW 439 top load washer.Thank you


Hello,
The humming sound i believe is the water valve open and calling for water but for some reason no water is coming to it from the house water supply..check that faucets are open and rubber fill hoses on back of washer arent pinched and restricting water flow into washer

The washer water leval dose not work


The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/toppressureswitchvideo.html this will walk you thru the inspection and replacement of this part. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Hotpoint wma22 fills with water but won't wash or spin


Suspect motor brushes need replacing.
Simple task accessed by removing the top of the washer and releasing the clips holding the brushes into the motor - clip on back of brush - to remove the brush assembly.
Replace complete brush assembly.
