Question about Hotpoint WMA76 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hotpoint WMA76s Hey FunkyBoogy, Wondering if you could help please. We have the above Washing Machine, everything seems ok, except it has started to overfill then comes up with an error that in the manual says means that it can't get water. If you advance the program, it finishes ok, but it really gets to full to leave it on it's own... what do you think? Thanks, Jon.

Re: Hotpoint WMA76s

It sound that your problem is cause the water level switch. The level switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help,you should replace the level switch unit. Good luck !

Hotpoint aquarius wml760 noisey when spinning with stuff in but ok empty

more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

My WMA76s is extremely noisey on a spin cycle only. The problem is getting far too loud. It is only when there is a load inside (no clothes-no noise) Is drum bearing at fault? I only ask as its quiet as a...

if this is a front load washer you broke the spider gear from using to much eats at the gear and unfortunitly it's cheaper to replace it than to fix it.if it's a top load washer it sounds like the tranny is bad,model number is no good,can't look up your machine

Hotpoint wt965 f04 error

F04 indicates that the pressure switch is jammed on empty,
check that the pump is working o/k, if it seems o/k and it drains o/k, then you have no alternative than to call an enginner
This really is your only option.

Washing machine tripping everything in the house

Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the machine:

washers heater unit
or suppressor.

Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments.

To fix a fusing washing machine you have to use a diagnostic electrical meter that puts high voltage across the appliance - Not something I can offer more info on. So whatever has happened (and in the interest of safety) you would probably want a qualified proffessional to take a look or as a last resort a hotpoint engineer!
