Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

PCB replacement I have to replace the PCB on this machine - very expensive but the machine is only 2 years old. I have obtained a replacement module and it should be just a case of plugging it in. Unfortunately the old board was removed by my father who cannot remember which plug went to which connector. I can figure out the multi pin connectors easily enough because they will only fit in one place. I am left with two single wires, a green/brown with a shielded spade connector end and a green/blue also with a spade connector but no shield. There are several spare possible connection points on the PCB. I cannot find a wiring diagram so can anyone give me a guide as to how to connect it without blowing an expensive PCB?

Re: PCB replacement

It seems that you are talking about the two wires that fit onto the back of the board where there is a black component that is square on the right hand side when looking from the front the wires fit within the black unit. i cannot remember which way around though. i will post again when i next do a wma repair ,tony.

My machine starts to fill and then stops. It flashes 7 times. What is this error?

What is the Brand and model of your washer ?

Is it Indent ?
Many basic UK Indesit washing machines fitted with a rotary dial indicate error codes by clicking the dial continuously round and flashing the door lock light a set number of times.
If the door light (LED) flashes 7 times it means, "Heater relay stuck - check connections on heater and module (PCB)".
In my experience, this fault code usually required a replacement PCB and EEProm. A connection fault on the heater usually results in the entire washing machine going dead. Nothing will work, but the LEDs light up. This symptom can also be caused by an open circuit motor or other faults.

It's always possible for a connection fault to cause error codes but the heater relay is embedded in the PCB and if it develops a fault the whole board needs replacing. I don't recommend replacing the PCB as a DIY repair. It is an expensive part and it will not be guaranteed unless fitted by an engineer. New PCBs do not come with the micro-chip EEPROM which would also need fitting. Replacing the PCB and EEPROM yourself is risky. If the fault is not cured you cannot send the parts back.
If you have an engineer to replace the PCB and EEPROM I would imagine the cost is likely to easily be over £100. If your washing machine has a 5 year parts guarantee Indesit would supply the PCB free of charge but only if their own engineer fits it at a cost of about £90.
If you are really keen to fix this yourself and want to try another PCB there is a company that might be able to help and are happy to deal with the public called Quality Electronic Repairs (see link below)

Beko washing machine

turn off power and check to see if fuse blown (for the motor) on the internal circuit board (if it has one). You will probably need to remove the cover. If you are lucky you might be able to turn the machine on its side to gain access through the bottom to any fuses ? Get help when lifting heavy objects.

Machine will not power on.

If the display lights do not come on at all then more than likely the Motor Control Board is dead, a replacement can be expensive so if your machine is over 5 years old think about replacing it. Remember you get 2 years warrany on all F&P machines. Most importantly make sure you are getting power to the machine by trying something else is the power outlet like a hair dryer.

Pcb wiring

Its the Printed Circuit Board, basically the main brain of the washer. They range from 70-170 depending on model. If you have a service plan on the washer, it might be worth it, but if not, I personally would replace the washer.

Knocking sound in the spin cycle off balance.

The motor switch that is mounted on the motor may need replacing. The knocking could mean that the "run" winding is cutting off momentarily, and running on the "start" winding of the motor. I dont know about a 22 year old model, but in most "near modern" machines, the switch has a plastic actuator that is pushed when the motor obtains near-run speed, that plastic may be worn or the actuator part on the motor may be at fault. If you replace the motor, you usually get this switch as part of the deal.

I have checked the Hotpoint web site, and a pcb is £114.00.
You also need the eprom which plugs into the pcb,this is another £24.00, and is unprogrammed, this means that it is a blank memory chip, and has to have the programmes put into memory.
This is something that only Hotpoint can do, so you have to add the cost of calling an enginner to the cost of the parts.
This as you can see, makes it very expensive to repair.
It would be in excess of £200.00.
There is one other alternative, and that is, if the washer is less than 5 years old, then you should be covered by the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee, but you would have to confirm this with Hotpoint.
It would certainley be cheaper to do it this way.
Plz rate my solution.
