I would suggest you check you pump filter, also I recommend that you check the carbon brushes in the motor for excessive wear.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

GO TO www.repairclinic.com enter your model number and look for parts 3365 and 2595. If either is worn or doesn't look as good as the pics you may want to change them. And you also may want to tighten the belt more.

Clothes still too wet after complete cycle


I would suggest that the filter wants cleaning.
To access it, remover lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose on to the tub.
Be careful, as there will be water in the hose.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.
Refit hose and filter..
I would also suggest that you remove motor and check the brushes for wear, whilst you have the rear panel off.

If there is less than 10mm showing, then they need replacing..

Wash is still wet after spin cycle


Hi!

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician

For further assistance need your machines model no.

Thanks

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin
