Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer
My Hotpoint Aquarius wf540 is almost 3 years old. Inside the drum the machine smells damp, mouldy. The washing smells quite sweet when taken out after a wash and also after drying but an unpleasant smell develops after storing like damp dogs!
Does anyone have a solution/suggestion?
PS my machine is also very noisy on spin, it also moves across the floor so my husband has had to fasten it back to the wall with a chain, various Hotpoint engineers have been out to look at it with no solution.
I have a hotpoint wf540 washing machine. when set to a cycle it will not continur through cycle. have to turn dial to empty drum then turn to rinse and spin etc. is the pcb at fAULT

Hi the previous replys to your problem i hope solve the smell however if not? may i ask does your water waste pipe from the machine drain via a seperate waste pipe that goes thro the wall and direct to drain? as some do ? or connect to the adaptor connection on the sink U bend? if it is 1st type of drain it may be that the actual smell is coming from the drain or a nearby sewer that may be blocked ? and fumes take a short time to perculate up your machines waste pipe ? i have come across this prob in past and raised manhole nearby to find scourse of smell was sewer blockage drain rodded and sanizal fluid cleared it up hope this helps? if other solutions fail?

A mouldy smell is often a sign of trapped residual water stagnating somewhere in the machine often just inside the door seal at the low point or in the filter.
Providing there is nothing like a old sock trapped in the pump or filter then there is not much you can do other than to dry the door seal and powder dispenser after use.
Please remember to rate this solution.
