No power to the appliance. Have checked plug and other appliances in same room.


Don't buy Hotpoint, cheap made in Mexico product. Possible electric surge or power strike. Possibly call local service. Control board may be $200-$300

I need a switchboard for a hotpoint aquarius WF000 6kg washing machine


By switch board, I assume you mean the control module.
If you go to Hotpoint's web site, you should be able to locate the part you require.

States see user manal E 30


The E30 code on Hotpoints means the motor isn't working. This can be due to a failed power module, worn motor brushes (very common on heavily used machines) or a failed motor fuse (usually caused by a worn motor armature). Sometimes it's a failed main circuit board, but this would normally be indicated by other erratic behaviour which you have not described, but it's still a possibility but is the least likely cause.

The tricky bit is knowing what has actually failed if you lack the tools and knowledge to make a diagnosis. The fuse is very cheap, but always blows for a reason: fuses don't just wear out. If the brushes are worn out then it's easy and cheap on a Hotpoint to replace worn carbon brushes: see http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/spare-parts-shop/hotpoint-carbon-brushes-faq.html for an excellent guide regarding this, all credit to the excellent Washer Help website. If the armature (the bit the brushes make contact with) is badly worn then new brushes won't fix the fault and a new motor is the best option. Hotpoint motors are fairly cheap and easy to replace so don't bother with gambling on a worn secondhand motor as it could fail again at any time.

Diagnosing a failed power module involves using a multimeter to test the module outputs. If the module has failed you still need to check the motor as I've known some peculiar armature failures to blow the module as well (even though the 7.5A motor fuse is meant to prevent this!).

Hotpoints certainly aren't the most reliable machines around, but they are relatively cheap to buy and usually cheap to fix. If the motor has worn out then expect the pump motor to fail very soon as well but again it's usually cheap to replace. When the machine is apart, check the drive belt for wear: Unless it's near perfect then replace it as a matter of course.

I hope that you have found my answer to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Hotpoint 800 trips mains and juddery and noisey on spin cycle


about the noise and juddering of the unit just adjust the legs at each bottom corner of the washing machine to make it stand flat on the floor. Do not touch the bearing for now!

My hotpoint ultima keeps triping the trip switch. it had f08 on the screen but now that has gone, but still trips electrics every time i press start.


Hi

f08 means heater relay cannot be actived so try unplugging heater element and see if it stops tripping the electrics.

regards

Wd640 hotpoint washer dryer - error code F03


This indicates that the wash thermistor is "Open Circuit" and I think it is situated on the heater assy at the back of the machine.

Check the wiring and contacts between the thermistor and the PCB. If you still get the fault it could be the Thermistor ( which means replacing the heater ) or a faulty board.
If it is under 5 years old - Call Hotpoint as you have a 5 years Parts Guarantee mind you the call out is £89.98 but thats cheap if it happens to be the board!
