My WMS38 Hotpoint washing machine has the wash, rinse and spin and final spin lights on but nothing happens when the start button is pressed


Assuming tap water is turned on. If there is no water intake, the machine will not start. Check for the sound of water pouring in the machine. Check the water inlet filter, if it is jammed with foreign materials such as rust deposits, small stones, soil etc. Then check for the proper functioning of inlet water solenoid valve. Sometimes the valve gets stuck.

Washing machine will not agitate or spin


If you can hear a buzzing sound during the spin cycle and yet the agitator is not spinning, then there is a problem on the motor itself. maybe you should change the motor or its windings.

Hotpoint Ultima WMA61 loud knocking noise in spin cycle


Hello I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it..

If you need any further advice then dont hesistate to ask....

Washer will not spin


normally i would suggest changing motor carbons for hotpoint washers, but my experience is that the WMA motor armature is weaker than the carbons, normally if there is no connection fault a replacement motor is the answer 9 times out of 10, not a job for the amature
