Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42. I was using the machine when there was a bang and the electrics tripped. I reset the fuse box, checked the plug fuse and the socket but still nothing. No lights so presumably no power. Could it be the brushes in the motor?

It more than likely is the motor that has shorted. Remove lower rear panel, remove belt. Undo 2 screws that hold motor in place, remove motor plug, lever motor back to remove same,
Remove carbons and check for wear, also look at armature and see if there is any sign of shorting, clean armature with emery paper, fit new carbons, refit motor and belt, test.

If it still does not work, then in all probability it will have blown the main control board.which would require replacing.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 I was using the machine, there was a bang and the electrics tripped. Now no lights or anything. Could it be the brushes in the motor?


Hi there .
Yes ,it more than likely is the brushes in the motor, or a faulty heater element.
Access is by removing the lower rear panel, there you will see the motor and element.
You can test the heater in situ with a meter, but you will have to remove the motor to check the carbons.
With it tripping your electrics, there is a distinct possibility that it will have blown the board in the top of the washer.. To check this,
Remove the dispenser and undo the screws, remove the 2 top screws located behind 2 plastic covers at the front of the top, and remove top cover.
With the selector dial in the off position, slide the console panel to the right and ease forward.
There you will see the board. Spring the plastic retaining lugs back that hold the board in place ,and ease the board out..You will then be able to see if it has blown, look at the right side.
If it has blown , then you will have replace it, as they cannot be repaired.
Hope this helps you solve your problem.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
