Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine won't spin

Hotpoint Aquarius Extra WMA36 : The machine appears to wash but when it reaches the rinse and spin it just fills up and empties without spinning.Tried to put it on spin only - nothing just the sound of the pump.Before it stopped working I noticed a buzzing/vibrating type noise when it was spinning.

I am thinking moor brushes, but it could be any one of 3-4 different problems.

Hotpoint Electronic 800 WM 12 Aquarius won't rinse


If it won't rinse because it won't fill, it's most probably because the cold water inlet valve is faulty. Many machines will only rinse with cold water....No cold water.....No rinse!! Not a big job.....Nomess

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....


if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

My hotpoint aquarius extra WMA36 is making a terrible banging noise whilst on final spin. When i open the door to take out the washing there was a smokey mist coming from inside the drum. Are the bearings...


hotpoint had a problem with the early bearings on these, so it would probably be the fault. or you may want to check the security of the concrete weights, one at the top and 1 at the rear of the tub.

Does not spin and rinse properly


Sounds like motor is not coming up to spin speed. May be overheating, in which case you would need a new motor.

Washer will not spin


normally i would suggest changing motor carbons for hotpoint washers, but my experience is that the WMA motor armature is weaker than the carbons, normally if there is no connection fault a replacement motor is the answer 9 times out of 10, not a job for the amature
