Hotpoint WMF760 fills with water but doesn't move through programme

When I put a washing on I can hear the machine filling with water then doing 1 spin then repeating this process. It never moves through a programme. The timer ticks down but the light stays at the first step of the programme. Anyone know whats up with it?

Bad motor/ DC power inverter control assembly. My suggestion is don't buy electronically controlled washing machines. They're designed to stop working and for corporate to sell you parts and service again and again and again, until you go buy a rebuilt second hand fully electro-mechanical good ole reliable mechanical top load washing machine.

SOURCE: Will not drain or spin

Unless you jarred the machine it's the timer. You can check this by bypassing the lid switch and seeing if it will cycle.

SOURCE: WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin

sound like the contact points on the timer are probebly dirty or arched to where they are not making good contact. you can take and clean them with a piece of emery cloth if you are mechanically inclined and can take the timer apart. Also there's a set of contacts down by the motor ti check too.
Good Luck,

SOURCE: washing machine fills then programme timer just keeps rotating

It appears your drive belt/coupling has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Hotpoint ultima washing machine wma74 drum not turning


If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long

Fills with water correctly, will not go to next cycle


Hi ,, ok lets try some fault finding,,, try putting the washing machine on a no or low temp programme like wool,, or even the fill empty spin , see if it moves then,, if the programmer moves through then spins, i would assume the thermostat is broken,, if it moves through but does not spin , it may be the heating element,, if it does not move at all in any programme i would assume the programmer has a problem

Problem with a hotpoint wmf760 aquarius + error code h20 coming up


You may have soap & grease in the pipe that leads to the pressure switch. Remove and flush through and/or replace. dry before refitting.
Thus constant high would give pump faults (thinks machine still contains water). Constant low may cause over filling. If you have a plug that suddenly moves, that can cause the above errors.

Programme not going through cycle


Hi does the machine fill with water? If the machine programme dial does not move then it is more than likely to be the heat cycle that needs looking at!
If you are local to me then we can arrange a visit to repair.
Good luck.............................
