Hotpoint wm53 unknown problem

Hi. i have recently bought a second hand hotpoint wm53 washing machine it works fine. recently when the cycle reaches the rinse stage it is cutting off the power to all my downstairs plug sockets. any time after this that i try and turn it on it will keep tripping the switches. after a period of time (a day or so) it will start working again but the problem will recur. the machine also makes a lot of noise when spinning i dont know if this is normal or attributed to the problem. hope you can help.

Hi.
Unplug the motor and try it again, if it does not trip, then the prob is the motor, could be worn carbons.
Re the noise, remove belt, and spin drum round by hand, if it is noisy and rumbling, then main bearings have failed, quite a big job to put right.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

My WD420 washing machine has been working fine up until recently. First the dryer stopped drying so bought a seperate one as all else was fine. Now I cannot get washer to work. It seems to not be pumping....


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @21:39 Sat evening

Most filters are found behind the bottom front cover. The cover will either pull off or be held in by some plastic screws which need turning 90 degrees anticlockwise.
Now-
POWER OFF AND HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE AND/ OR RAGS TO SOAK UP ANY WATER!

There will be a panel which can be turned anticlockwise and the filter will either be attached to it or remain in its housing. Remove and clean as necessary! At the same time normally the pump can be seen and should be able to be turned by hand/finger ensuring nothing is stuck in it (needle, tooth pick etc).

If there was a blockage the machine should now work.
If it does not may I suggest raising another problem ticket with the same heading as this one but state in the detail that you have already ensured that there is no blockage.

Hope this works for you!

Cheers,

John C

Washing machine motor works fine on spin but on wash, very weak w


Hi Dave, you got the answer right all on your own mate, it is brushes related, I had a similar problem ages ago and as it turned out it was the brushes breaking down, what you need to do is remove them both and clean the armature with some fine glass paper, inspect the brushes and make sure they slide in and out of their housing easily (no obstructions) then if they do, fit them back in to make sure they can reach the armature.

Hotpoint WD420 1200 Spin


Hi I have an Indesit WE16 with some of those symptoms and cannot figure it out - so please don't rate this as useless yet! I am beginning to suspect a bad connection to the motor and I have noticed that the drum only turns anticlockwise in my case - if the program calls for clockwise rotation the machine just hums for a few seconds and then stops.

Does this apply to your machine?
Please add a comment and maybe together we can sort both of them out. D
