It sounds like your timer might be faulty. the timer controls the washing cycles. I would bet if you replace the timer your problems would be solved. Of course, nothing is 100% certain. Premmy

Re: Hotpoint aquarius 1200 washer dryer

The timer consists of a rectangular bakelite piece with a bunch of spade [push-on] terminals. On this timer assembly is a small motor that looks like it came out of an electric clock. It is this thing that operates the washer/dryer cycles. through a series of cams inside the assembly it either makes or breaks contacts. if you replace this motor it may solve the problem or at least tell you if the rest of the timer assembly is good or not. anyway, replacing this motor is cheaper than the whole timer which costs about $130.

The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.

check the cold water supply, either from the mains pipe, there is no water getting into the machine, if water is there up to the machine check the solenoid for circuit, to do this unplug from electric, remove lid, and test the two wires on relevant solenoid, no circuit means faulty solenoid, (test with the 2 wires removed from solenoid) take care note position of wires to put back properly answer above based on info given

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
