Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA52 Front Load Washer

NO POWER The washing machine has stopped mid-cycle (full of water) and all the lights have gone out. Have tried changing the fuse, the outlet and the plug with no joy. Any other suggestions? If indeed it has died - how do I unlock the door to get the clothes out??!!

Easiest way to get the clothes out is to power the pump up independantly of the machine. you will need a length of mains cable and connectors. having got the water out, you should be able to remove clothes. another way is to put the drain hose down at floor level into a bucket and this will drain most of the water away. the actual fault is rather more difficult but check there is power the machine side of the mains suppressor. another possibility is the door interlock.

Hi everybody, I have a SpeedQueen Washing machine that does not complete the whole cycle while washing, it stops at the mid-cycle. What could be the cause? Thanks

It could be the heater element, if the wash water does not reach the temp selected by you within a certain time period, the w/m could abort the cycle.
The pump or outlet hoses could be blocked and the w/m cannot expel the waste water between rinses.( This would be if the machine stops and is still full of water). Try running a cold wash cycle and this should confirm if it is the element as it will complete the cycle ok.
Hope this help

My washing stopped working mid cycle. I checked

the timer is probably sticking (needs replacement) or lid safety switch stuck open. try restarting the load and if stops at the same place it is the timer unit, if it fills up with water and than stops - lid switch.

Hotpoint , no power, full of water

Turn off the water supply to the machine

Take the drain hose off the back of the machine and drop it into a bucket , you will need to do this several times.(Take off any clips that stop it from being laid flat on the floor)

Once all of the water is out of the machine try powering it up again, if it lights up do a spin to get the clothes dry , leaving the outlet hose in the bucket.

If that works then once the machine is dry try turning on the water supply with the machine turned off , if water runs into the machine then you have a faulty fill valve.

If that is ok then check the pressure switch and Air Bell which sits on the back of the main drum you could have a soap ball in the Air Bell which will false out the machine and cause overfilling

If there is no power check the mains supply to the wall outlet then the plug top wiring and any fuse fitted inside the plug top

After that it is down to a man with a test meter

Washing machine stopped working mid cycle

First, if you have not done so already, plug something else into the outlet to make sure there is power. If there is power, try other positions of the timer knob to see if there is any reaction. You can drain the tub by lowering the drain hose. If there is a floor drain available, just allow it to drain into that. If no floor drain is available, you could try a large bucket, which you may have to empty a few times. With the tub partially drained, turn back to the wash cycle to see if the solenoid valves will open to fill. Just a quick test, don't refill the tub. If the soleniods will open, then there is power to the machine, and there is a problem at the motor. In which case, you may just have a wire broken off of a terminal at the motor (since that is a moving part) or you may have a bad lid switch, or lastly the timer.

Hotpoint washer/dryer aqaurius stopd mid cycle with message F-01

f01 is a motor short circuit. you will probably need a new one and maybe the circuit board that powers it if all the lights went out unless the fuse is gone.
