Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA52 Front Load Washer

Hotpoint WM52 first Edition

It will wash my clothes just fine but when it comes to spinning them it wont. I have had the bushes done about a year ago when the drum would not turn at all, But now the drum turns untill it tries to go on to the fast spin where the drum stops and there is clicking from the front but then it turns the nob to the off position. Any advice is very welcome.

I think you will find that if you check the brushes, you will probably need to replace them.

Hotpoint washing machine not spinning with clothes in it

Its either going to be your clutch/brake assembly or the transmission. Both ways are a nightmare to do, and if you've never done one its not something to try for the first time and honestly, being a hotpoint its not cost effective to have a technician come to home and do it

Hotpoint WMA20 will not fast spin

It is rare that it would be the bearings as there would be play in the tub, it would be noisy and would probably leak. There is a small electrical box in the bottom of the machine. This is the speed control for the motor. You will also find the wireing diagram in a plastic bag in this location. You can check to see which wires require current to activate the different speeds.
I hope this helps.

Hotpoint first edition automatic washing machine washes clothes .

I've got a Hotpoint First Edition WM52 that stopped spinning at the end of the wash cycle. Called the repair man and he said it was most likely just the filter blocked? Suggested I reemove the front base panel and try to locate the filter remove, clean and replace. Front panel wouldn't come off, base panel at the rear, 6 screws to remove revealing a black squeezy hose with slide grips holding them on, on removal of the hose two ten pence pieces, a one pence piece and a childs hair clip blackened with dirt sat blocking the top of the hose.
Hope this helps; repair man saved me £58+vat just with a few words and a bit of persistence from myself

WF860 doesn't clean the clothes at all!

Lack of water in wash cycles. possibly due to blocked filters in water valves where hoses connect to machine or faulty water valve, normally cold inlet is the main problem

Hotpoint First Edition 1000 WM52 the turner thing for different washes is very hard to turn now, the machine seems to struggle.


It sounds like the timer is stiff, remove top cover, and spray WD40 liberally over and into the timer unit at the front right of the m/c.

If the motor is struggling to turn then you have another problem as well.

Good luck.
