Question about Washing Machines

Hotpoint WF321 during rinse and spin, will not go into full spin as machine keeps filling with water.

Hi reposting as problem not been solved or answered properly.

The machine should be entering a spin cycle however water continues to enter the drum and drain, the spin will not advance because there is water in the drum still. When no power applied there is no water leaking through the water valve. The pressure switch has been replaced. Why is the machine sending a signal to the water valve solenoid when it should be closed? I understand solenoids are energized open, so where is the voltage coming from to open the water valve at the wrong time?

The water fills the drum, pressure then activates the pressure switch to de-energise the water valve solenoid closing it and stopping water from entering the drum.

If there was a leak in the rubber tube from the drum to pressure switch the drum would overfill.

Hi, my machine will not complete the rinse & spin cycle, it appears to just keep repeating the cycle every time it should be going into a fast spin.

I have checked & cleaned pump and attaching hoses, tried different loads.

I have found if I disconnect the rubber tube from the pressure switch it spins OK.

I have blown down the tube and all seems clear (there is no resistance). II have also changed the pressure switch.

If left over night the first wash is OK, but after that it just keeps repeating the above cycle.

I have also checked the motor brushes which are fine.

Is there a vibration balance sensor somewhere that could prevent it from spinning?

I have noticed when I blocked the rubber tube to the pressure switch it reaches full spin speed, whereas previously before the above fault started it was not at full speed?

Help, please!

regards

Scott

Hotpoint Electronic 800 WM 12 Aquarius won't rinse


If it won't rinse because it won't fill, it's most probably because the cold water inlet valve is faulty. Many machines will only rinse with cold water....No cold water.....No rinse!! Not a big job.....Nomess

My Hotpoint Ultima keeps displaying an F10 fault and doesnt spin correctly. However, if I then switch it to a rinse and spin cycle it seems to spin OK.


F10 meanswater level pressure switch not sensing correctly, there could be a blockage in the switch hose or chamber, or the switch could be faulty.

Hotpoint WMA30 Front Loader Not Pumping Out but still fills if put on rinses, on spin tries but gives up


no easy way to get water out but try putting drain hose down at floor level into a bucket and that may work
fault is probably filter blocked.
to access filter, take rear back panel off. you will see a large diameter hose going from bottom of tub to pump. disconnect this hose at tub end - carefull, water will come out. filter is inside this hose. take it out, clean and reassemble
