Re: machine not turning

Could be motor or module problem - can't tell remotely but at least check the motor brushes

My machine starts and then flashes F12 and stops working what's wrong please?


if your machine is a Hotpoint/Indesit the F-12 error code is a communication error between the main pcb and the display pcb. No simple fix im afraid, a new main pcb is required.

you will need to contact the manufacturer.

Indesit washing machine pumnp burnt out, replaced it but it still won't pump or spin. Does it need a new programmer or can the programmer be fixed?

You're absolutely right. If you look at the wiring diagram on the machine it is clear that the drain pump is powered by triac on PCB (part code C00270972).
I think it is definitely safer and probably cheaper to replace than to repair the PCB.
It is always a good practice to visually inspect PCBs that there are no visible defects such burnt out elements, etc. before replacing. Sometimes the reason for burnout PCB may be on a completely different side.

I have a 609 Intuitive washer that was dead. Controller fuse was blown, pump control FETs shorted out. Another smaller chip in pump control circuitry obviously dead (small crater in the top). Corrosion...

i just love these machines they are not the best but there great when they work correctly. ok yes the most common problem with the f/p washers is they blow there power control boards the reason why is this there is no power short protection in the pcb have you ever unplugged the washer lifted the lid and turned by hand the barrel and seen that the lights on the control light up it allows the capstan drive motor to reverse its poer back to the board when the washer spins too fast it imt/s too much power back to the pcb. your completly ok to fit the control board it wont burn out 32 ohms on the pump is great give it a little spray of wd-40 anti corosive oil spray now the impulse reader on the side of the barrel small circuit board that must be clean and free of water marks and dust rust e.t.c then the drive break will respond faster stopping pcb burn out do this every 6 months

Sounds very much like the program PCB (printed circuit board) needs replacing.

A job for a qualified engineer I'm afraid.

Hotpoint wma42. drum not turning, brushes changed last november, have tryed a new motor twice still not turning... suspect pcb. what do you think.

Pcb is a distinct possibility but would check loom from board to motor as i have found many broken wires on wma series.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.

Ariston a1600wd not working

There is a filter of sorts in the pump inlet pipe, its a big item catcher coins etc, but thats got nothing to do with the module error wich is a pricey item at £120! I've had one go already and in the last year, a inlet valve plus a control pcb panel in fact its almost a NEW machine! i'll never buy another hotpoint or ariston again. The machine is two yrs old!

Hotpoint WD440

On the power pcb panel, there is an eeprom. This gets corrupted and throws the machine into a frenzy. A replacement should include a new pcb and a new eeprom. Only from dealers unfortunately.
