Re: 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

Hotpoint Aquarius wms38 1200spin Machine fills with water after wash cycle is finished and it is turned off

If the water is coming in after cycle has finished, then it is 1 of 2 possibilities.
1- A faulty inlet valve, replace it.
2-Water is syphoning back from the sink if it is connected to the sink waste outlet pipe, raise washer outlet hose higher up to solve problem

Please help the washer fills up and turns the

Seems like a blockage or maybe pump worn out. Fill machine and take grey outlet pipe on rear of machine. Place this pipe as low as possible into a bowl. If water flows free from this pipe then your pipes are not blocked and most likely you will need to change your pump. Before you try this just put machine onto spin and ensure this will work when machine is almost empty

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

Granddaughter just bought second hand hotpoint aquarius extra wms38 1200 spin .fixed it all up water coming through the ppipes but not in to the machene not filling up or doing anythging any advice please

Soumds like the water inlet valve is not working. You will have to remove the top of the casing and replace thr inlet valve. If the valve is ok then the trouble will be at the programmer. Usually it is the inlet valve.
