Hotpoint wd64 water feed tube layout help needed

Hotpoint wd64 water feed tube layout help needed and appreciated!!! I have bought a house that included said washer dryer. It was leaking badly so I opened it up and there was a disconnected tube so I popped it back on the only available place (bottom cold water feed connection) and it was fine until the dryer part of the wash cycle kicked in. Basically water started firing out of what a presume is some sort of air mix port (see pic). I think they have connected the tubes wrong but any help confirming this would be greatly appreciated. The hot water feed is connected to the first input behind the powder tray (looking from te back it's the left side) The top cold water feed is connected to the 4th Middle cold feed is the 2nd And the bottom cold feed goes straight to the pic. Any pictures of how the tubes should look would be great Thanks JD

mits86 , you are correct - it could be the belt.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

To do the belt...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic caps on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel.
If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wd64&part=belt.

6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!
- If the belt is not broken in your case - it could be the brushes on the motor - I can give you info on this if required!

SOURCE: GE Top-loader Leaks Water from Vert Tube Behind Tub on X-Large Loads

Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.

  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details

SOURCE: GE Top-loader Leaks Water from Vertical Tube Behind Tub on X-Large Loads

it sounds like the basket is not locked when it is agitating, if so the water will climb the wall during the wash cycle and leak out of the overflow (which is the plastic tube you described). if this is the case, it is a transmission brake problem. it can be fixed by a professional, but you might want to look into buying a new machine.

It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

If you have any questions, let me know

Hotpoint Aquarius Extra washer dryer WD64 will not drain water. Spin works ok.


Was it working before? You may have a blocked outlet hose. Try taking it off under the sink to look for a blockage. You could also try getting some water in from that end with another hose to see if it comes out into the machine. If it is not a blocked hose, then the pump may be faulty.

Rattle or leaking condensor on Hotpoint WD64


This website has been good to me so I thought I'd post back!

A common problem with the WD64 washer dryer is the condensor working itself loose from the heater box on the top of the machine. This will result in terrifying banging on spin and, if left, screws and rubber seals appearing under the machine. If left longer, as it was with my own, the machine will leak from the condensor to backplate joint at the back of the machine.

The problem is caused by poor fixings at the condensor (the white plastic piece) to the heater (the silver box at the top of the machine).The solution is to remove the condensor, clean it and refit it with new more robust fixings. Hotpoint provide their workmen with a kit of heavy duty bolts, but I did it with a few loose bolts I had. Save all rubber parts as they are riduculously expensive to buy. I had to by the o-ring from condensor to drum backplate and could only get 5 at silly money. If anybody wants one at a good price I'm kolleykibber on ebay.

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.

Hoptpoint WD64 appears to be leaking. Puddle appears an hour or two after cycle completes as expected. Any ideas why / any maintenance I can undertake to resolve?


If leak is occuring after wash is finished I would suspect a leaking outlet pipe joint around the pump as water will still be present in that area. If it is a leaking joint it may just need tightening, but to help it, only if you wish to, disassemble the joint and apply some instant gasket, type used in automotive assembly, and reassemble the joint and tighten. DON'T USE SILICONE SEALER as you may want to get the joint apart at a future date.

Dryer does not work drum rotates but does not dry on hotpoint aquarius washer dryer model wd64. all other functions operate ok


Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.

Hotpoint wd64 front load washer-dryer filter


if your hotpoint has no obvious filter its likely to be the type that has the filter built into the main exit hose from the drum to the pump. Clearing these is not as easy.Pull machine out and unplug it, on the rear there is a panel at the bottom which when removed you will see the pump where the exit hose attaches. From the pump to the drum is normally a wider black pipe and this contains the filter. removal of the pipe from the bottom of the drum is normally a jubilie clip but some have plastic clips that are easy to break. once you have dropped the pipe from the drum ( water goes everywhere ) you can then remove the white filter assembly which is like a shuttle **** with ping pong ball in it. clean out fully and make sure its all back together as before.

Hotpoint Aquarius Washer dryer WD64 Not Heating Wash Water


hi pw82,

its seems you're doing your home work. that cylindrical part is the thermostat itself. it should have a resistance in the range of kilo ohms. around 10 kohm to 25 kohms. you can try to change the range of your testing equipment so that you could be sure that te thermostat is really open circuit.

if there is no resistance, then that is the problem. if there is resitance in the kilo ohms range then it could still be ok and you need todo some further testing.

you can check for voltage presence at the terminlas of the heater. if there is no voltage then it could be the relay on the power board that supply voltage to the heater.
or the board itself.

i hope i was able to help..please rate me..tnx

Hotpoint aquarius 1200 washer dryer wd64


operation will be affected by having only one hose connected - when water from the disconnected hose is demanded then machine will not continue. i assume hot hose not connected. easiest way to deal with this is to connect both hoses to a ~"y" piece. easily available and costs about £3
