Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer
Machine is stopping mid cycle. Still has water in but will not empty on pump out. On/Off light, reduce creases and time saver lights are all flashing - help!
Just had this problem whilst trying to get kids off to school you know the deal, suit on reddie brek in your ear, wife shouts back as you scream help me get the bowl!!!!!!!
This is a pump siezed inication. Well thats what mine was. Switch it off at the wall, remove bottom whit cover by the screws, mind there are some hidden. On the right at the bottom the pump has a plastic splash cover on it. flick that off and slide the pump towards the cylinder it is held in by 2 lugs on a top heavy eight figure and then it lifts out. Remove power lead dont worry it only goes back in one way. The 2 clips holding the black pipe from the machine (this will have 2 bowls full of water so have one standing by and within reach, also make sure the wife is behind you and keeps quiet!! the white that is the drain are both ratchet style. with a bit of persuasion they will slide off each other if you get a twist on them with a screwdriver. (the teeth go across each other a lot easier than trying to pull against whats they are designed not to do). once you have the pump in your hand look in both ends for obstructions, mine was a party balloon which was well and truly wedged. Try it for free movement if not then maybe a new pump, get the part number off its id plate. Further tests if your careful plug it back in and cycle the machine and see if it spins up. If not then you may be in another world of components and relays. i have had my machine for 7 years and am amazed how well its doing, now its becoming an old friend as i am getting to know its inner workings more and more. Good luck, i am on email if you need. firstname.lastname@example.org.
