Hotpoint Ultima WDM73

How do you replace the "spider bracket" in this Hotpoint..I think it goes on somewhere to the back of the drum, but not sure how to access it. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

My hotpoint ultima is not heating, the drum spins. could you advise what the problem is


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For most Hotpoint (and other named) models there is a common problem often indicated by 'F08' which decodes as 'heater relay (possibly) stuck'. 'Check power supply connections to the heater, wiring and module (i.e. PCB) connections' (apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause).

So- if you are not electrically confident and competent yourself, which you may be, you need to employ the skills of a partner, friend or service engineer ;-0)
Sorry we cannot be of more help!
Good luck, John C

My Hotpoint wdm73 won't drain. how do I fix it?


  1. You will need to gain access to the drain pump through the bottom of the Washing machine. Remove the Drain hoses from the pump, clear any debris, change, etc. If it is clear, or the error continues after clearing, replace the drain pump.
  2. If you replace the drain pump and it still won't drain, you will need a new Control Board.
