Question about Hotpoint WMA64 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

WMA62 aborts all programs after 2 initial spins

Hi, Very recently my WMA62 (not 64 but it's very similar I think) stopped in the spin cycle. I opened the machine cover and saw that the belt was loose. This is a 4.5 year old machine and not heavily used. I replaced the belt with a new one, still no joy. Then I checked the brushes on the motor and they seem fine, plenty of carbon left and no obvious damage. The motor looks almost brand new. In my opinion, the problem seems to be that the machine thinks it's unbalanced. I think this is what happened with the original wash, I had some heavy items and stopped. I've tried spinning only programs. It starts ok, attempts to spin twice and after 1 min aborts the program and switches off. I've also tried starting a normal cotton/ handwash program, in fact almost all available programs! but still the same, it tries to spin fast (even at the cotton program) then it tries once more and switches off. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with the balancing. I've made sure it's balanced (with a spirit level as well) and I've tried with no clothes and I can see the drum doesn?t shake at all from the outside. I think for some reason it's stuck in an unbalanced state and can't see that it's balanced now. This is the reason it attempts a very quick spin at the beginning of a normal wash cycle. Can you reset it somehow? Does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks alot.

If this washer is trying to spin when you put it on a wash cycle at the beginning and it trys a fast spin then you have a timer fault m8 if on the other hand its working fine through the wash cycle and not doing the spin properly then it has to be your belt isnt tight enough if your cab=rbon brushs are fine m8

Heater problems abort the wash cycle and end the program. May be faulty heater. Does machine drain and spin on spin only cycle? check pump if not - or motor.

No spin cycle


Suspect there is heavy load in the spin cycle which makes it trip off. You need to check the free movement of the drum and also the motor.

Water sprays into machine on spin cycle


the machine is programmed to spray water during the initial period of the spin cycle as an added method of removing any remaining suds
that stops then the spin cycle goes into high speed spin for that last few minutes
If the problem is that it continues to spray water until the spin cycle is finished it will be the program board or program controller switch

check your brushes in the motor if they start to fail then it would act like this failing that then it will probably be the programer.

No final spin


I haven't experienced that problem, but is it possible that the machine becomes unbalanced with the spinning load and then aborts the spin, so it doesn't finish? Has the machine been properly leveled during installation?

Checking the pump woulb be the first step. The pump bearing get worn and begin to sqeal. If the pump is alright then the problem could be the spin bearing.

WMA62


Have you checked to see that the waste is not blocked? THis is very common on these machines and causes the pressure switch not to operate, making the machine fail to spin or spin with water in the drum, causing unbalance symptoms.
This is extremely common on Hotpoint machines without a accessible filter. The filter is in the rubber waste pipe under the drum and needs to be removed to be cleaned out. When iti s blocked it also blocks the chamber that operates the pressure switch.
