Question about Hotpoint First Edition WMA20 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hotpoint first edition

My hotpoint operates perfectly normal until it comes to the fast spin. The machines just rotates clockwise then anticlockwise continuously. I have emtied the filter, this has no effect. Could there be a loose connection at the speed control board (if it has one). Or do the brushes in the motor require replacement. I look forward to ur speedy response as the wife is gettin on my nerves a bit.

Wma washers (not the computer ones) normally do not have a separate control board, just the one at the top that has the timer dial on it, check for wires off or blown or burnt marks on it, after that check the wires at the motor, without doing multi-meter checks it could still be either i would not suspect the brushes as the motor at least rotates, it could be a blockage in the pressure system pipe, the thin one that comes from the top of the machine (a round item about 2 inch diameter) hope i have helped, if so rate me

Simpson swt8043 top loader washing machine agitates anticlockwise only from new.


The agitator is designed to “ratchet” and turn one way but not the other. If your clothes are being twisted, that is most likely a transmission problem where it tries to agitate and spin at same time

Unable to open pump fillter


Remove the kickstrip, front of the appliance. Unscrew the pump filter by rotating it anti-clockwise, A little water may leak from the pump: this is perfectly normal. Clean the interior thoroughly, removing any visible debris. Refit by screwing the filter into place.

Hotpoint WMA20 will not fast spin


It is rare that it would be the bearings as there would be play in the tub, it would be noisy and would probably leak. There is a small electrical box in the bottom of the machine. This is the speed control for the motor. You will also find the wireing diagram in a plastic bag in this location. You can check to see which wires require current to activate the different speeds.
I hope this helps.

Hotpoint WD420 1200 Spin


Hi I have an Indesit WE16 with some of those symptoms and cannot figure it out - so please don't rate this as useless yet! I am beginning to suspect a bad connection to the motor and I have noticed that the drum only turns anticlockwise in my case - if the program calls for clockwise rotation the machine just hums for a few seconds and then stops.

Does this apply to your machine?
Please add a comment and maybe together we can sort both of them out. D

I think you will find that if you check the brushes, you will probably need to replace them.
