It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi. The door seal is split on my Hotpoint Aquarius 900 WM61. Could you please advise as how to change it,or is there an on-line giude you could refer me to? Thanks!


For most front-loaders:
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.
(There is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)

Pl rate me nice for the free help!

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63 Not Spinning Clicking Programmer


I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long
This would give you the symptoms you are describing.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Can hotpoint aqaurius 900 WM61 operate from cold water supply only


Hi.
Yes it can.
You to purchase an adaptor called a "Y "piece for the washer..
B&Q sell them, they are easy enough to get hold of.
Fasten the straight end of the adaptor on to the cold inlet valve..
Then fasten the 2 inlet hoses to the other 2 connections, and the 2 hoses as normal to the washer,,
Then whatever prog you select, it will draw \in cold water.
All new washers are now cold fill only, so you will be right up to date..
This will solve your problem.

Hotpoint Aquarius


I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!

Hotpoint aquarius deluxe1000 WM22 Its not working........


Surely by now you've checked to see if your water inlet into the machine is good, ie turn on the taps. The machine wont start if there is no water coming in. Try the spin only function, it works??
