    Not quite there yet i know which solenoide is which but the wires r fixed lugs like you say only thing is im not sure which lug goes in which solenoid there colour coded but the coluors dont match the solenoids.
    black and red wire together which is colour coded red goes in the hot which im sure of solenoid is orange.

    so im left with a lug which is coded black with black and grey wire in.

    and lug which is coded grey with blue and black wire.

    can you tell me which of these goes in the cold solenoid and which goes in the conditioner.

If its just a case of plugging one in each, then this then can only be done by trial and error, plug one into the cold and one into the conditioner, close the drawer set the machine off on a rinse only, watch where the water goes, if it goes into the conditioner cup then swap the plugs round, the cold should move the powder from behind the conditioner cup, the machine will not trip, you will just work the wrong solenoid, hope that helps, sometime it says a letter on one of the wires about a few inch from the plug, but i guess you have tried that. if i have helped don't forget to rate me thank you

One of the wires will be the neutral and will have 3 ends to it (spades) all linked together (follow me)each one of the ends will go to one of the spades on each one of the solenoids (taps, now you will have a space on each solenoid to connect to the Blue generally indicated cold and Grey indicates conditioner, conditioner is generally the middle solenoid, if you follow the flow looking from above it goes furthest to the front of the washer (WMA models or later only) if the wires are as fixed lugs that is 2 wires are in a mold then just match the colours, the clue is on the back of the machine it also says C or H next to the respective solenoid, hope all is ok then

Dear fixya, I have a hotpoint aquarius wma52 which sounds like it grinds when drum turns. I gather it may be the bearing but I don't see how to take off the back and check to replace.thankyou


HI,
First of all, is the noise only heard when the drum is rotating or when the pump is running? This really makes the difference. Sometimes an object can rub on the outer tub during rotation and cause the same noise, other times, I have found foreign object within the pump and caused the same problem. So when is the noise heard is very important to lead you in the correct direction.
I will be glad to assist you if you like

I have got a Hotpoint Aquarius tumble dryer. I have just put a new belt on it and a new rear drum axle with new bearings and front bearing pads.I have made sure that the front of the drum is sitting...


Make sure that you have fitted the spacing washer provided with the bearing kit on the drum shaft, and that it is sitting between the rear of the drum and the rear bearing, double check that you have got the front of the drum sitting on all the plastic bearings at the front.
If it still catches, then fit another washer on the drum shaft to space it off from the rear of the cabinet.

Suspect bearings gone


I do not advse you to attempt to change the bearing, it is a very involved repair, and you need to know what you are doing. the normal procedure is to change the whole drum assy.
Check with Hotpoint

Bearing kit?


When you re-install the bearings make sure you use a good red appliance grease it is for high temp high speed use. Use a good amount of it then install the bearings the same way you took them out.

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....
