Question about Washing Machines

Hotpoint Aquarius will not start.

For months, after setting my Hotpoint Aquarius 1000 Washer (WM62P) I had to thump the door before it would start, a minor irritation. However today it would not start! no matter how I thumped, it would not respond.
Could the problem be a duff door interlock switch.

I'm old fashioned and am not familiar with the "duff door interlock switch" term. However, you are familiar with the fact that there is a switch that is activated when you close the door. That switch or a post that pushes that switch is not doing it's job.
Could be that the switch is not working properly or the post is broken.

My hotpoint aquarius front loader has power but wont work.


Most likely the Door interlock is faulty or has fallen apart (through the banging of the door)

It has a wide variety of wash programmes for white cotton, colourfast cotton, polyester, non-colourfast cotton, wool blends and wool itself. These standard programmes take from an hour and a quarter to three-quarters of an hour to complete.
There is also a quick wash programme lasting just under half an hour for lightly soiled items and a pre wash soak for heavily soiled items. The machine has four buttons providing extra facilities that can be set independently of the main wash programmes to give you a more comprehensive range of settings.
There is a rinse hold button, which I find extremely useful. When set this holds the clothes in the final rinse water until you are ready to unload the machine. You then release the button, let the machine go through the final spin and then you can unload the machine. It means that you don’t leave damp washing in the machine for the time between the cycle finishing and you unloading the machine, which would make for very creased clothes. There is also a button to depress if you want to use the super rinse facility. This merely increases the volume of water in each rinse so that the clothes are rinsed more fully. I have never used this particular facility, as the ordinary rinses are fine for my needs.
The next button allows for a slow spin. I find that this one is really useful for the items that I need to iron as it means that they don’t come out of the washing machine as creased as they normally would on a faster spin. The only problem with this is of course that the clothes are not as dry as they would otherwise have been. The final button is used to set the economy wash feature. This means that the washing machine’s own heating system is not used and the wash is done with the water at the temperature entering the machine from your hot and cold water tanks. This of course means a cooler wash so it’s only suitable for lightly soiled items.
The door remains locked during the wash programmes so that it cannot be opened accidentally and it can be locked when not in use too if you have small children who might get into mischief! The other big selling point for this particular model is that it gauges the size of the load and uses the correct amount of water needed eliminating the need for the half-wash programme. This also means that it is both water and energy efficient

On and off light and energy save and reduces creases lights flash


Hi Snarey, it sound like your door lock has passed away, you will need to make sure the appliance is unpluged, empty the water out of the drum, and check the vacuum switch which opperates the lock.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 won't power on


Could be the plug itself, or door interlock switch, try cutting off plug replacing Interlock cost is around 20GBP.

Door won't open


Usual reason for this is not emptied correctly. The filter on this model is in an awkward place so try lowering drain hose into a bowl to check if water still in.

Hotpoint Aquarius


I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!
