Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

Lock Hi, I need to purchase a new machine as our Hotpoint developed a fault (E02) and the repair guy said that it can't be economically repaired. It is 2 1/2 years old and was probably overloaded by our tenant. Could you please let me know if any washing machine are manufactured with a locking device to stop unauthorised people using the machine? Also the repair man said that the Hotpoint machines are not reliable and that we should not be buying them. what do you think about this? With regards, Patricia.

    Hi, thanks for that comment, I have had Hotpoint machines in the past that have lasted me 7 years or so and I did not take the seller's answer as true. The ballbearing would be too expensive to change so I am looking for a new machine but with a lock as I do not want a repeat of this problem. Could anyone help with this information? Thank you, Patricia.

    Hi, apparently it's the ballbearing that's gone and therefore too expensive to repair. I have now ordered a new machine as I could not wait, I don't think that there are any on the market with locks so I've gone for a 8kg capacity as the tenant probably overloaded the last one. With regards, Patricia.

How can i fix my hotpoint wt940 with F-01


Hi Hayley,

Please help us help you. Expand on what is working and what is not. SO please add to your comments and repost.

First things first. Water is always a hazard with electricity. Please turn of the power source to your machine and do a fine cleanup, Take canister vacuum and get the hard reach places. A large box fan will help dry the machine and the floor. Pull the machine away from the wall. If possible lift the top off the machine to allow air flow and a panel cover for examination. a hair dryer can be used to dry electronic components in the event of an overload. Give it a chance.


If the machine restarts and is faulting. Here is a link to diagnose the coding Error Codes Hotpoint Service

F01 - Short circuit motor triac*


Here is a place for an online repair manual Free Online HOTPOINT Washing Machine Repair Manual


Here is the Hotpoint manual conversion site Download Manual Hotpoint Service

It appears you may need a new module if the cleanup does not clear out the code

Door lock mechanism replacement


1) Will follow with reason to get hold of company or person who did prior repair.
2) Not familiar with this one.
3) When people more specific then help is a lot easier.
3a) That being said; Hopefully that you have a fix it warranty.
Large home appliances can pay off.
4) My problem was with a Whirlpool top loader. (The newer type with the 4" high impeller.) Machine made noises and had an error code which couldn't be reset. (Powered machine off/on a coupe of times.) Plus the clothes were always soaked and needed to be hand wrung to dry. Couldn't see why as the lid latch prevented opening to watch progress of cycle. (Development of the newer technology.) Had purchased the washer at Lowes. (And for once the extra warranty. A friend's suggestion.) 14 mos. after new the problem occurred. Called Lowes. A repairman came out and being as he had had repetitive faults he went under the machine and tightened the motor's hub nut which was lock washered. 5 days later the problem re-occurred. Called Lowes. They sent a different repair tech next day. This one did the same repair but added a substance (Loc Tite) before he tightened the nut. Loc Tite goes on as a paste or gel then semi hardens to form a lock washer effect by preventing the nut from backing off. That on top of using a new nut and lockwasher. Repair was done a year ago and is still good.
5) See #1. Call the repair company or tech. Hopefully your repair is less than a year old. Not all repairs or techs are equal!

Lights flash even when programme board changed


This problem will almost certanly be a fault which is caused by failure to pump, motor, solinoid, or door lock. the flashing light just tells you that a fault is there. you would need test meter to carry out repair

Hi, I need a repair manuel for a Hotpoint wm 53 first edition 1200 please. PDF download would be great. Many thanks.


You willnot be able to purchase a repair manual for your washer, as they are usually not available to the public to buy.
Try going to a repair forum, there are quite a few on the net, and they are very helpful.

Wash programme won't finish


this happened to my machine, I had to get a repair guy out in the end and he said it was the heating element had gone and that was why the cycle wouldn't move on as it could not heat the water to right temp.
he charged me £60 to repair and for part, still a lot cheaper than hotpoint though. try to get a local guy, hotpoint charge £100 basic.

Drum is loose and banging on hotpoint aquarius wf541


This sounds like a classic case of main drum bearing or drum support failure, it is a major repair and not really a DIY repair, unless you are coversant with w/m's
It involves a complete strip down and in some cases it is neccessery to to have to replace the drum as well.
The cost of the parts involved is well in excess of £100.00,and it really is not an economical repair.
I think you would be better off buying a new washer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WMA13 door lock fault


If the door locked light is flashing , then the main board probably has a fault on it, due to a problem with the motor, or the board itself being faulty.
Recommend calling an engineer.
