Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Flashing lights and trips the electric

Hi, We have a hotpoint aquarius wf250 washing machine. Its now about 5 years old so im hoping its not dead and its a problem which can be fixed! Basically its always worked fine until about a month ago. It started by washing (on all cycles it does this) the clothes but when it got to the spin cycle is started to spin but then just stopped and the lights started flashing and i couldnt turn it on/off only by the plug, but now when it gets to spin it starts it then after about 10 seconds of fast spin it trips all my electric downstairs and the fuse box wont let me switch back on for about half an hour. If i try to re-run the cycle or try on ANY other cycle it just does the same! My husband has taken out the 'ping pong' ball in the back and cleaned it all out but still the same he has also leveled it and still the same. I have 2 young children so we are urgently hoping it can be fixed without paying out in these hard financial times! I would be SO grateful for ANY advice/help. Thankyou in anticipation!!

Are you around when the breaker trips? It almost seems as though an electrical connection is getting wet. Especially if it won't let you reset the breaker. Another reason for not letting you reset the breaker could be an overload that tripped but that to me would be within the machine, it shouldn't trip at the panel. You get pull the machine apart and check for these things. Look for and wetness or wire connections being crossed, anything like that. Something at the spin cycle is shorting out and tripping out your breaker. Also is your dryer circuit properly sized (30AMP Breaker with 10/3 wire)?

Drum won't spin


A couple of possibilities,there is something fast in the drum,or the main drum bearings have seized up.
If it is the bearings, and it is under 5 tears old, then you should be able to get it done under your 5 year parts guarantee., you just pay for labour and call out, a much sheaper solution than buying a new washer.
You really need to determine what has caused it to jam up.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wf250 drum wont spin


Well if you see the drum move in the wash cycle than the belt is still attached.Your door latch is the first thing to check.And the control board is the next and most likely problem.

it may be the interlock but is more probably the control PCB in the fascia, this is not a DIY repair as it requires programming when replaced.
