Have you checked for blockage in the pump. Or the have been some problems with a ball that sits in the hose between pump and the drum. This can block the water. Check this berfore purchase new pump.

    You can also check power to the pump, if you get power to pump then its settled. Or you can measure resisance on connectors on pump. If you have acsess to el tools.

    hmmm. if u dont have any tools that can measure voltage and ohm. than it wont be easy to check the pump. what u can do is dismount the pump from the machine and take it to your local workshop for appliances. then they can test the pump with power to see if it responds to power. if it rotates at the workshop and not on the machine, then you know the pump works. and than it must something with the electronics. we do this all the time at our workshop.

Hi, My hotpoint Aquarius WMA50 washing machine has just sparked and blown all the electricity off. I changed the fuse but this had no effect. All the dials are off and the machine will not come on. My wife...

if your machine is sparking I would say that you should unplug it and not use it --- call a service tech to check it out and see if it can be fixed.
( that unit is now a fire hazzard and a short in the system is obvious,, don't take any chances ).

Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

Noise when draining

U will find the filter by removing the lower rear panel of the m/c.
Locate the large black hose at the right side, and remove clip securing hose. Get some thing ready to catch any water that will be in there, and remove hose.
There u will see the filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose,making sure that u get the hose on properly, test for leaks before u put the panel back on.
U will find this much easier to do if u tilt the m/c forward, and support it with something underneath.. Check inside the pump as well.
Plz rate my solution.

I have a hotpoint aquarius 6kg washing machine, i need to cancel a progeamme and drain the washing machine as their is a sleeve caught in the door and water is coming out but don't know how to please...

if the model starts with wm then you should set the timer knob just before a spin setting and it will empty out.

if the model starts with wma,few or wf then you will have to hold in the start button as this will cancel the current cycle and should start to drain.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj
