Check motor brushes, chech in pump for obstruction, if pump obstructed it would force water back up dispenser hose.

Hotpoint aquarius 1300 wma56 not draining. I've taken out the filter and cleaned. Put all back together, did spin cycle - all good. ran a full wash. Now stuck with water in not draining or spinning.

The motor is not reversing direction when it is supposed to pump out the water from the machine. The timer may be the problem or the motor itself.

Wont spin and the front indicator lights are going from pre wash to end in a night rider fashion

try checking ur door switch may also want to check the water pressure switch which signals the machine to go into wash after the fill cycle

Our washing machine is leaking at the front. What are the most likely causes please, and how can I fix it. It is a Hotpoint Aquarius Extra WMA36 1300 spin. Thank you

It is so common that water leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked from the front then the door gasket can be fault and needs to be replaced

please check this link:

If there is leak at the bottom as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Check for tips on the link below to identify parts and removal:

Leaking water from door during spin

Most likely door seal, check all around the seal, as often very small holes are missed, then they open up during spin

i would inspect both the hoses on the pump
no leak during cycle is explained because water is moving through them to fast to leak when the machine settles it starts to leak

Hotpoint fault?

Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

My hotpoint wma56 wont do its fast spin cycle

Have you checked and cleaned the filter on the machine, usually located and the front near the bottom. If so then there is 2 other possibilities, either your water pump at the back of the machine is blocked or faulty, or it's the timer on the machine. A washer won't go into spin mode until it has drained all the water from the machine first. hence the pump has to run. Just remember to drain all the water from the machine before checking your filter otherwise it will end up on your floor.
