Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW12 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My hotpoint aquaris machine is not engaging the fast spin function. When it comes to the fast spin in the cycle the machine goes dead. The machine was performing the fast spin until recently however the clothes were left saturated in water. Then the fuse blew and since the fast spin is not working. Iv changed the carbon brushes in the motor but it has not solved the problem. Help!!!

Everything you have described points to a blocked pump,worth blowing down the clear pressure pipe from the switch end while your in there to make sure thats clear!

Our Hotpoint Aquarious Extra WMA40 will not discharge water and when it goes through it's cycle the water builds up and the only way it comes out is through the front and soap tray


I would guess something is blocking the drain pump. Collar stays are enemies with drain pumps, couldn't tell you how often I run into that.

Hotpoint aquaries wf321 is making a loud clicking/knocking noise when its in the spin cycle, to me sounds like a poss bearing gone or maybe something is caught up?


From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy or rumbling, then the drum bearings have failed.
It is possible that there is something caught between the inner and outer drum.

No longer rinses or fast spins...although drum does go round slowly... My WMA 13 First Edition Hotpoint has stopped fast spin, so although the drum does go round, it does not speed up to a fast spin at...


LETS check the DRAIN MOTOR PUMP it could be clogged , open panel of washer to access inside , look for a small motor with 2 hoses connected to it , take it out , clean it , re install and try it again , hope this helps AJ

You need to check the lateral movement of the drum if it moves by more than 1-2 mm then the bearings need to be replaced.
