Check the motor if this is still OK. If it is no longer spinning or running, look for the running capacitor.
Note the rating in microfarads or take this off as your
sample when you buy a replacement. Put the replacement in place, and restart. Please let us know

I have a Hotpoint BWM129 washing machine and the Delay start and Superwash lights are flashing. Can anyone explain what fault code this is? The door locked light is also on.


Manual says to unplug maching from wall for at least 40 seconds to a minute. This will reset the unit. If that does not work you will need to call a service tech.

Washing machine stopped spinning & tumbling at any cycle. Have limited knowledge on multimeter use, but door lock/switch appears to be in working order. Belt around motor in excellent condition. ...


Check the condition of brushes. Replace if necessary. Check motor rotation. Not rotating, check if it has a soft starter for motor. If there is soft starter, bypass it. Check the motor rotation. If it does not rotate, then it is quite likely that the motor is burnt.

Motor will not spin both ways


Starts fine then stalls, I would check the belt,gear case and also for a seized pump bearing. Pull the machine out and remove the access panel with a 5/16 socket and put it into spin, try to watch as you start the cycle. Then if you don't see any problems tilt the machine back and examine the belt for wear, glazing, cracks and rotate the belt to find any frozen items, gear case and pump.

Hotpoint bwm129 making huming noise


Sounds like the rinse water can't come. Maybe the solenoid for cold water got stuck or a water filter needs cleaning? If the humming is louder, perhaps the drum motor (or drum) needs a little care or cleaning.

If all else fails, download the user manual and check the trouble checklist index. (Or; try learning your kenpo succession move sparring against laundry to clean it.)

Hotpoint washer


Your machine has multiple issues. First, the obvious: are the water lines turned on? When you try to fill it with water, can you hear the water valve humming? Try different temperatures, too. If it lets one temp in, but not the other, you need a water valve. If it doesn't hum at all, you could have a problem with the pressure switch or the timer.
The motor humming is the issue that worries me. Try removing the belt from the motor pulley. If the motor turns now, it's a transmission problem. If it won't agitate (you'll have to satisfy the pressure switch first) or spin at all, your transmission could be locked up. I've had limited success by pulling on the belt (hard) in both directions. This has only worked once to unjam the transmission.
Good luck!
