Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

No power Hi there we have a 3 year old servis 1100rpm washing machine. We first noticed it did not spin, then suddenly no power at all, no noise, no lights, nothing. We have replaced the fuse in the plug, and replaced the door switch, still nothing, yet when we bypass the switch, i,e, make a connection to the 2 out of the 3 wire plugs that go into the switch, it works. Any ideas? Thanks Elena

This is a lack of neutral feed to the door switch. The feed comes from the circuit board which is where the fault lies. However if fitting a new board i would advise replacing door switch as it was probably the initial cause.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

HI THIS SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD BE THE CARBON BRUSHES IN THE MOTOR SO YOU NEED TO CHECK THEM OR GET SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU IF THEY ARE LOW (APPROX 5MM LONG OR LESS) THE MACHINE WILL TUMBLE BUT WONT SPIN IF THEY ARE LONGER THAN THAT THOUGH IT COULD WELL BE A CIRCUIT BOARD PROBLEM WHICH UNFORTUNATLEY IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS BRAND IF THIS IS THE CASE BE PREPARED TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON A REPAIR AS THEY ARE EXPENSIVE!

Either the child lock is on - press and hold quick-wash and anti-crease, at the same time for three seconds.

Or your machine need re-seting

Turn power button off (not at wall)
Select 90 degree wash
Press Start and Cancel button down at same time for 3 seconds and turn power button on whilst still holding buttons down - Start light will flash.
Leave power on.
Select any Spin position.
Press Start and Cancel button at same time again for 3 seconds - other buttons may start to flash - if they do, press Start and Cancel button together again for 3 seconds.
Machine should be re-set ready for use.
Good luck!
