Turn off the water supply to the machine

Take the drain hose off the back of the machine and drop it into a bucket , you will need to do this several times.(Take off any clips that stop it from being laid flat on the floor)

Once all of the water is out of the machine try powering it up again, if it lights up do a spin to get the clothes dry , leaving the outlet hose in the bucket.

If that works then once the machine is dry try turning on the water supply with the machine turned off , if water runs into the machine then you have a faulty fill valve.

If that is ok then check the pressure switch and Air Bell which sits on the back of the main drum you could have a soap ball in the Air Bell which will false out the machine and cause overfilling

If there is no power check the mains supply to the wall outlet then the plug top wiring and any fuse fitted inside the plug top

After that it is down to a man with a test meter

Hi, got a wt960. it stopped mid cycle(dont know at what stage but drum had water in it.) it took out the 13a plug fuse and after replacing the fuse the display does not function but the door lock still...


the problem may be your pressure switch. If you have a multimeter, use it to check for any electrical issues. If there is no reading the pressure switch needs to be replaced.

Hotpoint wma22 fills with water but won't wash or spin


Suspect motor brushes need replacing.
Simple task accessed by removing the top of the washer and releasing the clips holding the brushes into the motor - clip on back of brush - to remove the brush assembly.
Replace complete brush assembly.

f01 is a motor short circuit. you will probably need a new one and maybe the circuit board that powers it if all the lights went out unless the fuse is gone.

Hotpoint WD64 No power - help please !


hi from n/west uk from the symptoms you describe ? that you have no lights on machine? this is most definately total power loss to machine so if you are certain? the fuse is ok? next is has the wire/lead from plug chaffed or damaged breaking the supply? this next possibility may sound odd but the socket you plug machine into ? may be faulty ie the damp location at rear of machine could have caused deteriation of socket terminals or wires even the wire may have broken/come loose? have had this happen in homes and caused by wires not secured properly and eventually arcing/ resulting in power fail at socket ? may i suggest try another elec appliance ie lamp/hoover/ iron? to check if socket is operating just to eliminate? also if the socket is a fused type? make sure this fuse is ok too? finally have you checked consumer unit for possible seperately fused/trip out for the machine use socket ? hope this helps find fault best wishes

hi there the problem you have sounds like the motor has shorted out causing the pcb to blow, sadly this is a costly repair and is usualy not worth repairing as you will need a new motor and pcb

NO POWER


easiest way to get the clothes out is to power the pump up independantly of the machine. you will need a length of mains cable and connectors. having got the water out, you should be able to remove clothes. another way is to put the drain hose down at floor level into a bucket and this will drain most of the water away. the actual fault is rather more difficult but check there is power the machine side of the mains suppressor. another possibility is the door interlock.
