I have a wma 10 which is a couple of years old. The door seal now leaks when the machine goes onto a spin? Is there anything that you can suggest?


Sounds like there is too much water left in the drum as it goes into the spin cycle, and the centrifugal force of the drum spinning is forcing the wate past the door seal probably, needs the filter cleaning, or the door seal itself may require replacing.

Clean the door itself and the door seal. close the door and give the glass bowl a tap at the bottom where it meets the seal with your fist this should do it.If not change the door seal

Hotpoint wma 10, rus through cycle till it starts the fast spin it does a few revs, shakes alot, it then trips to the end and prog end light comes on together with the door lock light, it must be unplugged...


Just a thought but you never tampered with the water level on the pressure switch did you? This would give off similar faults. It could be the pressure switch itself or the chamber is partially blocked it could be a broken or loose tacho wire on the motor. Or it could be a fault on the main control board.

WATER IS COMING OUT FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE WASHING MACHINE ONCE THE WASHING HAS STOPPED, IT DOES NOT LEAK DURING CYCLE AND IT SPINS AND DRAINS FINE..


i would inspect both the hoses on the pump
no leak during cycle is explained because water is moving through them to fast to leak when the machine settles it starts to leak

Goes straigt to spin


TRY CHECKING THE BOARD ON THIS MACHINE ESPECIALLY THE MOTOR CONNECTION. WHAT YOU WILL AHVE TO DO IS PUT THE DIAL IN TO THE OFF POSITION ( ONLY AS GUIDE ) THEN DISMATLE THE BOARD FROM THE FRONT FACIA. HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT THE MOTOR PLUG CONNECTION SECTION OF THE BOARD CHECK TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY TRACKS THAT HAVE BLOWN. I RECONDTION WMA ALL DAY EVERYDAY AND I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE ONCE AND AM THINKING YEH THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. OR IT COULD BE THE TACO ON THE END OF THE MOTOR BUT THIS IS VERY RARE FOR HOTPOINT WMA UNLIKE THE HOOVER MACHINES.
