Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

Should motor on AQ113F497I be earthed

My 6 month old washing machine has just made some scary bangs, before turning itself off and then on again. It then did the same thing again. It sounded like it was shorting out badly inside so turned it off immediately, but there was a strong smell of burning. Worries me that if I hadn't been in the room then it could have beena fire. As its so new I know I can get it sorted under warrenty but feel that there may have been a major risk to my family. I've attached some link to some pics below. http://postimg.org/image/lpvuedh91/ http://postimg.org/image/j11n609gl/ http://postimg.org/image/5o0cexzl7/ Thanks in advance

Check the brushes in the motor. They've probably worn down and need replacing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You are going to need to clean the washer. You need to get inside the washer and clean the tub, hoses, and water pump. Articles of clothing and other items get stuck in these places. Once you clean it, run a load of bleach water through the system. This should take care of your smell.

Keeps tripping power at 13minutes remaining, just before the spin cycle


Hello. It sounds like the motor has gone bad--possibly a shorted part of the motor, or a jammed drain pump. It also could be the transmission binding at the point of going into spin mode. You didn't provide a brand/model number so my help is limited. The clue here is the clicking before the power trip.

when a machine gets old it is always normal for the vibration and banging to occur, then, after the vibration it settled down smoothly.this is due to worn fan belt .bearings worn out and the preasure on the spindle.so dont get alarm .but you will soon have to replace the washer as the banging and the vibration will get worse eventually.or change the fan belt.and replace bearings.which can be done by a qualified personel.good luck.

It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.

GE washer WJSR4160G0WW agitation is way too fast & hard


check the 4 rubber cords at the top of the tub. If the washer has been moved they may need to be adjusted, you can see them by looking between the top of the tub and the top cover. You can turn them with your hand, and you may need to tighten them after.

My HE3 washer, about 4 yrs old is locked , showed error code 6


Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually if clothes are still in the machine.
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed. Due to this the machine shut itself down.
