Hotpoint Aquarius WD64 - Tripping the electric?!

Mid cycle the other week the above machine flipped my electric. Everytime we switch it on at the wall now, it trips the electric. We bought the door switch because we thought it was the door, fitted that but it still trips the electric. We have tried changing sockets, no joy. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Re: Hotpoint Aquarius WD64 - Tripping the electric?!

Something is going down to earth, start by unplugging the motor and retesting, if it doesn't trip them check the motor carbons etc, if it trips then check the heater element for contact down to earth, replace if needed etc, then check the outlet pump the same way if i have helped rate me please ps when working on machine remove from power supply

I have water leaking from the dispensing tray, only on the pre wash filling..any suggestions I have a hotpoint washer dryer wd64

Check the level of the machine, may be leaning slightly forward allowing water to leak on that one fill cycle. Lift the front a little by using the adjustable feet and see if it stops.

How do i tighten the drum weights on my hotpoint

Remove rear cover, and you will see the concrete weight at the bottom, sometimes the securing nuts work loose, or break off.
There is also a concete weight in the top of the washer as well,so check this as well

Hotpoint WD64 No power - help please !

hi from n/west uk from the symptoms you describe ? that you have no lights on machine? this is most definately total power loss to machine so if you are certain? the fuse is ok? next is has the wire/lead from plug chaffed or damaged breaking the supply? this next possibility may sound odd but the socket you plug machine into ? may be faulty ie the damp location at rear of machine could have caused deteriation of socket terminals or wires even the wire may have broken/come loose? have had this happen in homes and caused by wires not secured properly and eventually arcing/ resulting in power fail at socket ? may i suggest try another elec appliance ie lamp/hoover/ iron? to check if socket is operating just to eliminate? also if the socket is a fused type? make sure this fuse is ok too? finally have you checked consumer unit for possible seperately fused/trip out for the machine use socket ? hope this helps find fault best wishes

Hotpoint wd440 flashing dryer heat button and onoff button !

I had to have a tech come out for the same problem two weeks ago. They had to clean the lint collector which you cannot get to on your own. He said now that this has been done everytime I use the machine, take the clothes out and then run a rinse spin cycle.

Ref Hotpoint - aquarius extra - WD64 Washer trips the electric just before the end of the wash cycle. Fault always happen at the same point. If manualy turn nob (on to dry) before end of the wash cycle...

I had this problem. It is not to do with the switch.
The point at which it trips, will be when the spin starts to get fast.

There is a design flaw - and this is particularly easy to see in the dark, as you can see the spark!

The bundle of wires that links to the end of the motor rubs against the motor mount, and one or more wires break through the rubber insulation shorting whenever the drum and motor start bouncing around. Find the break, and use a stack of insulation tape to re-insulate - better still, get a professional to replace the wire.

That worked instantly for me, and have no other problems since.

Washing machine tripping everything in the house

Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the machine:

washers heater unit
or suppressor.

Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments.

To fix a fusing washing machine you have to use a diagnostic electrical meter that puts high voltage across the appliance - Not something I can offer more info on. So whatever has happened (and in the interest of safety) you would probably want a qualified proffessional to take a look or as a last resort a hotpoint engineer!
