Question about Hotpoint First Edition WMA12 Front Load Washer

WMA10 abridged programme cycle

Model actually WMA10 but similar to WMA12. Which ever programme is selected machine starts up as normal but will then rotate several times - hold for a while - rotate several times more then tells us it has completed the cycle. ie prog end(light comes on) and door unlock (light off). Water will fill and also will drain. Any ideas please? Would like to know what component is at fault if anyone can help. My wife is giving me serious grief about having to use the laundrette.

Hotpoint first edition WMA10 making a bangin noise during wash programme. Cannot find filter in order to clean.

I have the same model at work only under the frigidaire branding. The shock mounts for the
drum are made of plastic and can break (especially if the unit is moved without the
shipping screws) If one breaks the unit will make a clunking sound.

I have a Hotpoint BWd129 washer/dryer. When I

I have a similar Hotpoint model to this, that does something very similar now and again, usually when trying to set a delayed start.

The only way I have found to "fix" it is to turn the machine off for at least 5 minutes, and then try again.

Hope this helps.

Wixe 127 how do you get max spin 1200 on spin cycle can only get 800 down to off?

It can actually depend on the programme you have selected.
You have to select a programme that will accept a 1200 spin, as not all programmes do.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint first edition washing machine door will not open after completing its full cycle

hi from the uk susan ? this is not uncommon and easily fixed if you are confident DIY ? and req's a little patience with a posi drive screwdriver if you want to save $$$$s on call out fee ? the problem is most probably the time delay switch which prevents door opening too soon after cycle/machine has finished and the light has gone off then door can be opened if you feel confident ? will help/instructions on how to rectify fault if you reply back ?

Bosch WFL 2872 washing machine has just started beeping (3 beeps) at approx 1 minute intervals at end of program until I turn machine off. washer is 3 years old & has never done this before - does it...

A similar thing happened to mine. I think it starts when there is a power cut or something similar mid cycle. The solution (which you would never guess!) is the following:

Select any programme - say 30 Cottons
Press and hold any function button - NOT Start Signal will sound at varying levels - release button when it gets to the level that you want, off in your case. De-select programme Good luck!

Faulty Hotpoint WMA76 washing machine

it may be 1) a connection loose at the motor 2) motor brushes are worn out 3) a pcb fault check in that order.
