Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer
I removed front panel to see pump. When machine is filling with water, in rinse cycle, water flows through pump, like pump wasn't even there. Then when spin cycle starts, pump propeller does not spin, though force of spin cycle makes water flow through pump, like pump is just an open tube. No blockages found anywhere. Bench tested pump, seems to work okay. Not energized, no water flows. Energized, it spins and ejects water. Even if electrical not getting to installed pump, why does water flow through it when it is not even spinning? Washer is only a couple years old, wiring looks good, haven't tried tracing electrical flow or components.
Sounds like the water is syphoning away due to the drain outlet hose being too low..Raise the hose higher, and this should solve the poroblem.
