Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA52 Front Load Washer

Washing machine WMA54 Hotpoint sticks on prewash

Hi - my product is a WMA54 but there was no option on the list.  My washing machine is 4 years old but I've never had a problem with it.  I recently moved home and now when I try to do a wash it goes through the cycle to rinse and spin then jumps back and 'locks' on prewash - the red light flashes.  If I press 'start' it does the same again. I can get it to spin on a spin only cycle.  Can anyone help please?  It is out of its warranty so is there a solution or is it time to say goodbye to it?

I realised that the washer was not filling properly with water!  So I pulled it out from the wall and noticed the cold water fill pipe had been squashed and had a kink in it so not enough water was getting through.  I remedied this by pulling the pipes through the under sink cupboard and securing them with gaffer tape,  Hey presto the machine now works again!  Hooray :D

    as the person above recomends check all your water connections and secondly clean your inlet filters they are normally situated on you inlet gates just behind the screw in pipe connections

Drum is not turning


Could be the brushes, only way to prove it is to remove the motor and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4 mm long, then they need replacing. If brushes are o/k, then it is probably a control board fault.

Door lock


Switch off. Try some WD40 on the machine lock (not on door) and open & close door many times, to ease out the lock.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin


Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.

Hotpoint wma54 washing machine


sorry but not the job i would recommend to anyone not done or watched it done before its about the most difficult job to do on any machine, even though in my 20 years experience this is the easiest machine to do a drum bearing change on, most of the machine has to be stripped down, removing all the front panel / timer panel / door seal and drum front / drifting out the old bearings fitting the new ones and rebuilding the machine, not counting testing for and rectifying any damage the drum has done to the rest of the machine and surrounding parts, good luck if you attempt it, sorry
