If it has filled with water, and no lights flashing, and then no motor action I would check the brushes in the motor for wear.
Remove rear panel , remove belt, undo 2 screws securing motor,
and lever motor back, disconnect motor plug, noting which way it goes in, and check brushes for wear
Plz rate my solutioin.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WMA30 is leaking a small amount of oily water from the back of the drum when in use. There is a small hole in the back of the drum, should there be a screw in this hole that has fallen out?


Thwater is leaking because the shaft seal has worn, and the hole is supposed to be there as it is a drainage hole.
The outcome will be that the main drum bearings will eventually fail as the water will get into the drum bearings.
To replace the seal involves a complete strip down of washer. not a job to be undertaken by yourself, unless you know what you are doing.

Hotpoint aquarius ctd00 tumble dryer...everything working but drum wont turn


it looks like you need to put the belt back on which is inside the machine. to do this open the lid with screws on back take lid off then you should see the belt inside the machine and where is was before on the drum of the machine. slip it back on and put lid back on and it should start turning again. hope this helps.

Hotpoint Aquarius Wma30, leaking water...filter?


There should be a plastic filter fitted in the hose, if there is not, then it should not stop the pump working, unless ther is a blockage in the hose from the drum to the pump, or a blockage in the hose from the outlet of the pump.Try removing the hose from the pump outlet, and blowing down it to see if is clear.
Also the pump itself could be faulty.

Fitting new belt


Remove top cover and lower rear panel of washer
With some help, tilt washer forward, and fit belt round motor pulley first,slowly ease belt onto drum pulley and feed slowly round, turning pulley at same time, it will be very tight, so watch your fingers, you can align the belt after it is fitted. Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint fault?


Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


If the machine pumps water inside but does not start :

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 , see: It doesn't spin
