Question about Hotpoint WMA64 Front Load Washer
WMA64 won't heat up the water. I have used a multimeter on the Element and it appears to be okay. One suggestion that I saw suggested there might be something burnt out on the circuit board but, I have checked and there is nothing obvious there. Other posts suggest it may be the Thermostat or Thermistor. What is a Thermistor and what does it do? Also any idea where these components are located and what they look like ? Any help appreciated

its seems you're doing your home work. that cylindrical part is the thermostat itself. it should have a resistance in the range of kilo ohms. around 10 kohm to 25 kohms. you can try to change the range of your testing equipment so that you could be sure that te thermostat is really open circuit.
if there is no resistance, then that is the problem. if there is resitance in the kilo ohms range then it could still be ok and you need todo some further testing.
you can check for voltage presence at the terminlas of the heater. if there is no voltage then it could be the relay on the power board that supply voltage to the heater.
or the board itself.
i hope i was able to help..please rate me..tnx

Make sure the economy button is not selected if it has one, as this bypasses the heater..
you say you have had element checked and seems o/k, to be certain it is o/k then test with a meter when it is on heat stage in the prog, and make sure you have a 240V reading across the heater terminals, if you have and it does not heat, then the element is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.

could be motor not rotating under pressure. When you say brushes have you removed them from motor to check them, also check they slide in and out thier holders ok, as they may be sticking

SOURCE: my hotpoint wma31 won't start,
It's a good machine. Well done for keeping it that long. It sounds like maybe it thinks the door is still open. (What happens if you intentionally try to start the program with the door open - It the result exactly the same? If it is, then it's probably the door interlock sensor.
If this is the case then you may find that a couple of good slams of the door will free off anything taht is sticking. Otherwise, you may have to check to see if there is a wire off the sensor (They do fall off sometimes) or.. after 13 years, it may need a new door sensor

Dryer heating elements come in various shapes and sizes. They are all strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to heat and dry the clothes in your dryer.
