Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer
I have this old washing machine delivered to me by the letting agency. They are so busy that it is lieing idle since a month. Hence I tried setting it up myself.Connected it to the colde and hot water pipes. cut of the blocked extension pipe at the sink trap and connected the drianage pipe to that.
Everything seemed fine and started it with some clothes.
To my surprise, the whole washing camber got filled with water and when the pressure increased, started overflowing through door, and not a single washing action started. I had to stop the washing machine, turn off hot and cold water supplies to drain out the water.There was still about 4 inches water left in the chamber which I had to drain using cup.
Can you please guide me, what might have gone wrong. The drain pipe connection to sink trap is at about 2 feet hieght(as is in the manual) and the washing machine on floor.
Hey mike mate problem with the washing machine is minor, however your gonna have to get the top off the machine to get to it.
It seems to me that the plastic tubing connected to the pressure swtich has come away. OR is damaged leaking air. However it is common for it to come off in delivery especially when its an old machine and has no transit brackets.
Theres only two screws to undue, their near the front on either side of the machine.. located behind two oblong caps. remove caps remove screws and push the top back and off.. the swtich is directly behind the soap draw. it has two single wires and two wires on a plug attached.. DONT REMOVE THESE.
THE PRESSURE SWTICH COMES IN TWO SHAPES EITHER ROUND OR OBLONG BOTH HAS A LITTLE TUBE STICKING OUT THE BOTTOM..
Check to see if a plastic tube is connected to it and running down to the filter compartment. most likey it aint hence causing it to overflow..
