Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 front loader

Hi, the machine runs all through the programme and empties water. But, the spin cycle does not work! it tries to run to full speed but something stops it from doing so thus leaving the clothes wet. I have checked the brushes on the motor and they have over 20mm still available. Any ideas much appreciated?

Re: hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 front loader

I 've had this problem a few times with these machines.

Some solutions that have worked for me are.

1 change the motor.
2 change the wiring loom
3 change the board.

The most common one is the motor even when the it has decent brushes the motor just will not pick up speed on the spin cycle.

hope this helps.

Very noisy when Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 is on spin

It is the main drum bearings that is causing the noise.
There is no provision made for lubrication.
It can be done as a DIY fix, but it is a very involved repair, as it means having to remove the whole inner workings of the washer,
Not a task I would recommend unless you know what you are doing, and feel competent to tackle it.
Good luck.

Wash machine stays on wash cycle and doesnt go to rinse or spin

If the water is not getting hot, this will probably stop the programme advancing .Check heater.
Plz rate solution to prob.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 1300 , front loader

half loads will vibrate more than full load
check transit bolts are removed
if vibration persists, then fault is probably shock absorbers worn

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.

Washing still wet - door won't open.

not a fault with washer. i guess you are plumbed into trap under sink. the spigot you fastened drain hose to is blanked off - there are various methods of doing this including have to saw off the end of the spigot with the bread knife. possible also a fault with pump or filter

Hotpoint aquarius deluxe1000 WM22 Its not working........

Surely by now you've checked to see if your water inlet into the machine is good, ie turn on the taps. The machine wont start if there is no water coming in. Try the spin only function, it works??
