    Do you have the correct rated breaker(s) for your washer 40amp? 50amp? etc.

    the instructoin book will tell you what size breaker(s) you must have and, then check the breaker box to see that you have the right ones(s)

Use a stiff new paint brush and give the motor and controller board a good brush
what happens is the carbon drum motor brushes deteriorate
and the left over dust can cause mains tripping as it allows conduction to earth at the motor brushes and plug

you can look for this one for days
its worth noting that there is two types of mains detectors
one is earth leakage ELCD and this usually trips the whole panel
and the other is MCB type just trips one circuit like sockets
so if the MCB trips this is over current and if its just the ELCD this is earth leakage and will be the heating element or dust build up

i agree with the other answer
it would be helpful to know what part of the cycle it fails at
this will tell us more
forinstance if it fills with water then stops and trips
its gona be the heating element

if it trips as it starts to turn its the motor
its something to do with the motor
remember the heating element wont come on till about 1min into the cycle

Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Could be a faulty motor or heater element, you need to isolate the heater and try it again, if it still trips, then I would suspect the motor is faulty, try unplugging the motor at the rear of the washer, and try it again, I'm afraid it is a process of elmination.

Keeps tripping electric as soon as is turned on


Remove the lower rear panel of washer, and unplug the motor lead, then try again, if it still trips out, then disconnect the leads from the heater element, try again, if it still trips, then I would suggest you call someone in to check it.

I HAVE A HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WD62 WASHER DRYER. THE DRYER FAN TURNS ON BUT DOES NOT HAVE ANY HEAT COMING THROUGH, ONLY BLOWING COLD. CAN YOU SUGGEST WHAT NEEDS CHANGING? THANKS - RICHARD S


It will be a faulty thermostat or element more than likely, or a broken wire.
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold over to the right side, there you will see the element and thermostats.
You will need a meter to test them.
Hope this helps.

Loud noise when spin drying, rumbling sound, sounds like concorde taking off! Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 washer dryer WD62


Remove rear panel of washer, and remove drive belt.
Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough, or is noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed, quite a big job to do.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hi i have a Hotpoint WD640 1400 spin Aquarius + and on the control panel it keeps flashing F-13 can anyone help


The dryer fan or dryer thermistor (thermostat) is faulty.
If the fan is working, then replace the thermistor, or check for broken wire.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Door Locked. Cannot open. Washine inside.


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Aquarius 1200 wd62 - Dryer not working


Most likely it is some sort of blockage in the vent, although it could be a bad blower. Check the lint filter and vent openings for a blockage.
