Hotpoint WD62 Drum wont turn

Hello,

My WD62 Washer Dryer has packed up on me. When i set the dial to a wash cycle it fills the machine with water but the drum wont turn. The machine makes a clicking sound as if it is trying to follow on to the next part of the cycle. When i turn the dial gently to encourage it to work it just continues to make the clicking noise.
I would like to fix the problem myself as there is a two week wait for an engineer!.also very expensive....Any ideas on what part is broke and needs replacing and is it easy to replace?
Many thanks
Jon

Tilt the machine backwards. with a multimeter, check continuity across the brushes - if open circuit then brushes need to be replaced

Hi I have a hotpoint WD62 washer dryer. when I'm using the dryer the clothes still come out wet like the steam is not going out of the machine. Any tips on what to check for? Could something be...


I had the problem. I replaced the water inlet valve, and that fixed it. It seems no cold water was coming in on the drying cycle to condense the steam.

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Where do I drain the tumble dry water on a hotpoint wd62 wash/dry


remove the top panel by unscrewing the 3 screws at the back of the washer dryer . remove the top and then remove the back metal panel. the screws are down the side and all around the back of the panel. once you have removed the panel check for the black rubber hose that connects to the drum. remove the clip holding the rubber hose by prising it with a small screwdriver. be careful as the water will flow out quite quickly. Check the hose pipe for any blockages and clear as required.

Drum wont turn


Yeh you carbon brushes on the motor need replacing..


easy to do yourself. i have a post or there is a post on this site.

All you do is remove the top lid by unding the three screws at the back and pulling it back.

You will c the motor atached to the top of the drum. Now myself personally have a set of 90degree bent nose pliers specially for this job i dont know abbout you. You will c two white looking plugs inserted at the back end of the motor remove these and replace.

Howver on some models diffrent motors are used where you undue the carbons with a screw drive and replace.

Good luck Washdoctor..

Please rate me. the solution is adead cert. new brushes cost around £5 to £10 pounds

Hotpoint WD61 stops near start of wash cycle


all in the timer. but there may be nothing wrong. sometimes in the cycle there will be a gap between water full and agitate or between drain and spin depending on settings. try it again and let it go and if there is a gap of more than 5 minutes than it needs a timer. most machines timers are right around $75 and you can most likely replace it yourself. sears appliance parts is the place to buy it. you can order it and they will deliver it to your door. or if you can get the phone # most of the outlets have a parts dept. also they take parts back for full credit for any reason.
