Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hotpoint washer WT740which is 2.5years old has this am refused to wash. It will draw its first amount of water and then does nothing . Having cancelled the program (F) I tried to get it to fast spin but would not do that either. It did however pump out when I put it to that setting. The barrel will move freely by hand. Any suggestions please? Joan

    Thanks for trying to help! Have found that it is in the control board, 2 places were burnt out, and after being soldered is now back in use! This washer was bought new in Jan 06 so not up to standard of the Hotpoints of years ago. I have found that the model no is actually WT740T. Thank you very much for your effort.

    Try unplugging the washer for 10 minutes and see if this resets the system?
    This usually does the trick in the new programmable washers today!
    Let me know of your success.
    Thank you
    Sorry, I am trying to find info on this washer!!

Hotpoint hv8b 593g all lights flashing and sounds like its trying to pump water out all the time even when empty

Sounds like a sensor or a computer board is having trouble. My Samsumg Top Loader went after 2 years it refused to spin out anything always went off balance even when nothing was in it. These new washers are Junk! I went back to the old style now I get my work done with out stress! Also the old washer which is a Maytag only cost me $100. that beats a thousand dollar machine which I had and Samsung would only allow a certified tec look at it well that a problem in it's self just for them to look not work on it was very costly and I feel if you have to buy a 1 or 2 year extended warranty that tells me it is a piece of junk! I had a Maytag it lasted me 32 years till it burn up. That is a good product the ones they make today are junk throw aways it is very sad.The best I can tell you is get a used one the old style it can be fixed and they don't cost as much.

Water coming out of the powder draw when the draw is closed

The hose from the drawer into the tub is blocked or kinked, not allowing the water down quickly enough
