I have a hotpoint washing machine (wm 62)and it jumps whils starting to spin. this is a recent problem and i find i have to move it back into position following every wash.


Hi.

You have a balancing problem.

The first thing to do is checking floor level and putting the machine at balance as explained in the user manual (see
Installation and User Instructions for the Aquarius Range). If that does not work there are internal faults that may result in heavy shaking during spin part of the cycle. Such problems are mostly mechanical (eg. struts, bearings, rollers, springs), the machine must be disassembled to locate the problem.

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Why no spin?..Is the water fully pumped out, is it out of load balance? This happens when too few items are in the drum the machine senses this and will not spin.......Hope this of some help

Hotpoint Electronic 800 WM 12 Aquarius won't rinse


If it won't rinse because it won't fill, it's most probably because the cold water inlet valve is faulty. Many machines will only rinse with cold water....No cold water.....No rinse!! Not a big job.....Nomess

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

WM 22 will not spin


yes.dose it drain,see it must drain before it can spinso if water is standing in it it wont spin and that would mean your pump is ither blocked or reciving power but not working.

Washing machine not draining therefore not spinning


You will find the filter located inside the large black hose at the lower right rear of the m/c.
Remove lower panel and you will see the hose there.
Undo the large clip and remove hose and clean filter.
Plz rate this solution
Thanks

Hotpoint Aquarius WF250 Loud banging when spinning


The hardest amount to balance is a load with just one item.Because you have nothing to counter balance the other side.So,first off,put in a normal load ,make sure your washer is level by using a level to assure it is, other wise if its not all the clothes will group in one spot where its not level ,than when time to spin you have a un balanced load.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WF 250 ON/OFF LIGHTS FLASHING


The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.

probably a balancing spring broken the load will go to one side of the drum when spinning.Needs to be taken care of before it rattles itself to death
