REMEMBER: when checking the resistance ensure that all wiring is disconnected from testing points!

Remove the top cover of the washing machine, you'll see about a foot size aluminum casing of the heater itself. Using a multimeter set on resistance (ohms) check the resistance between two welded pins (heating element) The readings should be roughly fom 0 to 26 ohms. If there's no readings you'll need to replace heating element, othervise check the resistance of thermo-fuse wich is located between those two welded heater pins. one of the wires connects heating element and thermo-fuse directly. The readings should be around 0 ohms, if no reading just replace the thermo-fuse.

Lets end at this point for now, as replacements thermo fuse solves the problem in most cases.

Please update me about your success, If unfortunately it didn't helped, just say and we'll find the solution!

Good luck

With both the WD 64 & a previous model, I have found that fibres from fabrics build up in the plastic duct that takes the hot air from the heater box (above the drum) and the point where it enters the back of the drum. On our present machine it was so bad that barely any air flow was getting through. This will eventually cause overheating and a thermal 'trip'. The only solution is to competely remove the duct section and clean it out. After disconnecting power, remove the top and back covers of the machine. Working from the top, remove two self-tapping style screws that attach the duct to the heater box, then working from the back, remove three hexagon headed machine screws (8mm AF I think) that hold the lower end of the duct in place by retaining clips. You will also need to disconnect cables from the fan motor (slide off spade connections) and a couple of small bore rubber hoses. You should then be able to withdraw the duct and fan as a unit, out the back of the machine. Watch out for the 'O' ring on the lower end. You then need to remove the complete blower fan unit from the duct (3 hex headed machine screws). With this removed you can access the inside of the duct and rod it out with something appropriate. In our case the fan impeller was completely coated in a thick layer of what looked like grey felt, rendering it virtualy ineffectual. The duct itself was also thickly lined, I had to use a long wooden skewer to poke the felt out of all the passages.

Once the cleaning is done, reassemble, taking care to refit the 'O' ring on the lower end of the duct. Also ensure that when the duct is reinstalled, there is clearance between the drum and the little black cooling fan on the back of the blower motor, otherwise it will clatter against the drum and impede the blower action.

I removed in total a large heaped cereal bowl of 'felt' from the duct and impeller, and dryer performance went up by 99%.

Hotpoint Aquarius Extra washer dryer WD64 will not drain water. Spin works ok.

Was it working before? You may have a blocked outlet hose. Try taking it off under the sink to look for a blockage. You could also try getting some water in from that end with another hose to see if it comes out into the machine. If it is not a blocked hose, then the pump may be faulty.

I have water leaking from the dispensing tray, only on the pre wash filling..any suggestions I have a hotpoint washer dryer wd64

Check the level of the machine, may be leaning slightly forward allowing water to leak on that one fill cycle. Lift the front a little by using the adjustable feet and see if it stops.

Dryer does not work drum rotates but does not dry on hotpoint aquarius washer dryer model wd64. all other functions operate ok

Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint Aquarius Washer dryer WD64 Not Heating Wash Water

hi pw82,

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

Hotpoint aquarius 1200 washer dryer wd64

operation will be affected by having only one hose connected - when water from the disconnected hose is demanded then machine will not continue. i assume hot hose not connected. easiest way to deal with this is to connect both hoses to a ~"y" piece. easily available and costs about £3
