Hotpoint Washing Machine smells mouldy as has mould

I have had a Hotpoint Washing Machine for the last 3 years and have done most of my washing on cold cycles. I heard this week that this will cause a build up of mould on and under the seal at the door - which has now happened. The mould has started to smell.

I was sold some descaling powder to help with this problem and told to run the machine on a hot wash with nothing in it with the powder. I have done this twice now but the smell is still there. Does anyone have any other suggestions about how to get rid of the mould - could we buy another seal or will we need to get a new washing machine?

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA58 (about 16 years old) is leaking, seemingly from under machine (back looks dry), and leaving clothes wet after spin cycle. Door seal seems sound.


no not worth repair at 16 years old
its got issues with aging worn motor
not spinning fast enough
door seal if you can buy one
may not be the water leak fix

time to replace the washing machine

Hotpoint WT 960G Smell from the machine when in use.


Usually the smell is caused by bacteria from the soiled water when washing is done on a cool wash. I have told customers before that to clear the smell you need to do several hot washes maybe using your white so as not to fade or run colours and in time the bacteria will clear and smell will also.

Error E30 flashing on washing machine


What brand. Ih it is a hotpoint. I found this on the net from a washer help site in the uk

Error 30 (on Hotpoint) just means the motor isn't working. Several things, including the power module, can cause this. The most common cause though is worn carbon brushes. There is also a 7.5 amp fuse on or near the power module, which can blow. This fuse is on the motor circuit to protect the circuitry of the power module. If it blows, then the motor won't work and you will get error 30.

If it has blown, it's likely to be caused by the motor. I had one last week where the armature in the motor had shorted to earth which blew the 7.5 Amp fuse.

To check the brushes, with the machine unplugged! Have a look at my Hotpoint and Creda carbon brushes diagnostics You can also Buy Hotpoint & Creda carbon brushes

Hi my hotpoint washing machine is near 3 years old the last few weeks it is making a terrible noise when on spin only. \r\nthe noise is really loud but everything is washing and drying the same its just...


Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

to find the leak take your lid off + the access panel on the back now turn it on if u still cant find the leak tip it backwards and have another look but it could be a fault theyve done by not sealing the 2 halves of the outer drum if thats the case they should come out to it straight away or get in touch with the trading standards because it has only just been done and it must be something theyve done if it wasnt leaking before

Leaks after wash programme ends


Check your inlet hose or hoses if it is hot and cold fill.
Turn off supply to washer and see if it still leaks, if it does then you have water coming from inside m/c somewhere

With my hotpoint washing machine the clothes are soaking wet at the end of the cycle, don't know if its not spinning properly or what?


hotpoint machines are renowned for needing carbon brushes to be replaced in the motor they usually last between 12 months to 2 years depending on the amount of use the machine has.i would check these first as they are a common cause of hotpoints not spinning, if they are ok then check the pump and sump hoses for blockages (not emptying water out)
