Hi, common problem with this make of machine but easy to repair. Take off the lid and make sure it is un plugged from the mains...... You will need a pair of hook nose pliers to remove the carbon brushes from each side of the motor. They should be an inch long if not there is your problem.. Just replace and it will run.
Let me know how you get on..........

Hotpoint WF860 drum not turning. Belt checked all ok, no error codes it just fills with water and goes through the cycle filling and emptying when it should and the drum stays still. Can someone help?


ours did the same as this........ it needed a new control board after checking everything you have mentioned. it was a couple of years ago and at that time it was a hotpoint part only. but they can be picked up on ebay for around 30-40 quid.

The drum doesn;t turn during wash or spin cycle


Hi,
Kindly remove the back panel of the unit and check whether the belt is properly fixed if it is ok means check the wire connection if everything is fine. kindly check the motor humming sound once the water is filled if you find the humming sound means kindly replace the motor

No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains


brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin
