Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer

Washing machine motor works fine on spin but on wash, very weak w

Hi OK my hotpoint washer as an AEG motor, it wont turn the drum on wash cycle, seems to struggle, but on spin cycle it works fine very `strong` and on 1400 spin it trips the RCD on the mains.
Its not the brushes as they just wouldnt work at all would they, and they would crackle which they dont.

Hi Dave, you got the answer right all on your own mate, it is brushes related, I had a similar problem ages ago and as it turned out it was the brushes breaking down, what you need to do is remove them both and clean the armature with some fine glass paper, inspect the brushes and make sure they slide in and out of their housing easily (no obstructions) then if they do, fit them back in to make sure they can reach the armature.

My hotpoint ultima wont spin, its as thought something is preventing it for spinning. When its switched to spin cycle it turns a little to the left, then a little to the right, but cant seem to go any...


Things that couse this are, worn motor brushes, unplug remove the top, the motor should be at the top, if so remove the wire attached to the spade of the grey cartridge then unclip using a very thin screwdriver pushed down the back of the cartridge, and slide out if there is only a small peice of brush showing they must be changed, if ok spin the drum by hand if it moves freely the the drum is ok, the last thing to check is if it moves through the wash, but its just the spin that it wont move, there is a blockage, and the preassure vessel wont allow it to spin.

Hotpoint motor problem after renewing drum bearings!


Hi dave, Its nothing you have done! It will need the carbon brushes changed in the motor as they have got low. The arcing is caused by the brushes not touching the com properly. Just change them and it will be all good.....

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


If the machine pumps water inside but does not start :

Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details , see: It doesn't spin

Hotpoint Ultima WMA61 loud knocking noise in spin cycle


Hello I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it..

If you need any further advice then dont hesistate to ask....

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.
