Question about Hotpoint First Edition WMA20 Front Load Washer

Machine stops mid-cycle

The machine stops after the wash cycle and doesn't go on to the spin stage. It spins fine if you then manually select a spin-only cycle (although sometimes you need to put it through spin a couple of times).

Re: Machine stops mid-cycle

You need to check your carbon brushes need to be more than 8ml in length now what you also need to do is withthe washer empty fill it up with water on any cycle now put it on the empty cycle make sure it fully emptys the water b checking if the door opens after spin cycle finishes if it doesnt then your pump is either blocked or the fan in the centre of the inside of the pump is weak under pressure which means it needs replacing if none of these then it will be your timer that is faulty which if its a old type washer its not worth replacing the timer m8 sorry these are the only faults that it can be let me know what u find m8

    it is either a broken wire to your heating element or the element itself is open circuit. when the water does not heat the machine will not move onto next stage of wash.

    Stops mid cycle. Light flashes, cant get it to move on so have to start all over again

    Hi there.
    I have the same problem with my machine. Whatever program I select, the machine runs fine until it reaches 54 mins of the cycle remaining. To overcome the problem just to select a cycle that will not stop mid cycle, select a program which is less than 54 mins. I think the 40 degrees and quick wash select is the one to run with. The cycle is 45 mins, obviously less that 54 mins. The LED timer will display the cycle time. No problems with this cycle whatsoever. Not the total solution, but at least you're able to complete a cycle. After it's completed, I also run the spin program at 1200rpm. I hope this helps.
    Regards, Ian.

    The machine will start a cycle normally, but after the timer reaches a certain point it stops counting down and the machine will continue to agitate until you force it to stop.

    Thank you for verifying the model type so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A questions in this forum machine specific topic area.

    FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

    You will need the Service Manual for support. I’m an owner like you with a solid repair skills on the machine and will try to help you DIY the repair if we can ID the issue through troubleshooting.

    Do you have this condition in all wash cycles? Will a Quick Wash cycle complete? Do you see the Cycle Status LED ever indicate the machine has moved to the Spin Cycle during the wash cycle? This could be a Control Board failure but we need to troubleshoot.

    I want to make sure the Wash basket will spin up with a Spin Only cycle selection. Can you select a Spin Only cycle with a empty wash basket. I would release the washer top so you can observe this test. I want to rule out a broken Clutch large wrap spring.

    Page 33 of the Service Manual will show you how to release the washer top from the base. In Spin Only cycle raise the top just enough to make sure the wash basket is rotating Counter Clock Wise – CCW with the Spin Only cycle selected and operated.

    If the above test doesn’t indicate an issue I would like you to try the Quick Service Cycle test on page 15 of the Service Manual and see if your FAV6800A will pass that test with no clothes in the washer. When you put the machine in Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys until the machine beeps and the LED display reads 00. Then press Wash/Rinse Temp to start Quick Service Cycle test. Did the test complete with a PA indication in the display? It will only display the PA code for a few seconds. End of cycle will beep washer will unlock and Cycle Status LED will indicate complete.

    Waiting for your reply….Rich

    Our hoover ultra care 1300 large load washing machine spin fault

    The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
    If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.
