    I had a blown door interlock about 2 years ago. It had also blown a strip on the PCB. I replaced the door interlock and re-soldered the blown strip on the PCB and it worked fine until last week when the door interlock blew again (I believe there is a design fault on these door interlocks).



    I replaced the door interlock with the new design door interlock, but I also had to replace the PCB this time, as more strips had blown (my solder being of higher melting point than the copper strips - some of the components on the PCB had also blackened with soot).



    On restarting my washing machine, the door locked, the water filled the machine, but the drum is not spinning. I have not had time to thoroughly test, but is this likely to be a lose connection, or have I blown the motor? Anyone have any experience of this?

    Once door closed,machine clicks once as though locked, door lock light continues to flash as tho not locked, so machine doesn't start cycle.

Hellooooooo
Well its either the door interlock or the pcb behind the control panel....

What sometimes happens is that the door lock will blow the the pcb obard if there is an electrical short and if so you will need to replace both..

however sometimes its just the door interlock..

if you need advice on how to get to it then let us know cheers

    Turn the electric off



    the best way to get to the board is to take of the lid firstly as it will make removing the front panel with the knob easier to remove.

    To unde the top lid you will need to locate the oblong screw caps which are on the side of the lid towards the front of the machine.



    Then all you do is lift the lid up from the front and push it back so it comes off.



    The remove the soap draw and undue the three screws behind it,, pull out the soap draw you will what i mean, ps there are no other screws for the other side,,



    Then once you have done that, all you have to do is oukk it back and unclip the wiring and check the pcb, you will have to unclip the pcb board from the panel to check if it is blown..



    To remove the door lock undue the two screws on the lock put you hand down from the top and grab it ..



    other way is to unclip the door gasket and get it out from there but the other way is easier as you already have the top off



    if you need anything else the dont hesitate to ask...

Hotpoint aquarius extra wma 36 trips the electric off 10 mins in to wash cycle B/C/D. can you help. if it in wash cycle k (quick wash) it works ok


Sounds as though the heater is shorting out, there could be a crack in the heater casing and water is getting into it so when it is energised once the tub has filled it would short out. The quick wash does not use the heater so it is not energised on the K wash. Domestic Appliance Help

Hotpoint aquarius extra wma40 - door locked light is flashing and want lock. also before this happened a sound from the machine like an explosion which blew out fuse in the house. please advice


Hi.
I suspect that the top control board has blown , this happens when the brushes wear out in the motor, and short circuit the motor armature, which in turn blows the control board.
Either way it is likely to be an expensive repair, my advice to you would be to buy a new washer if it is more than 5 years old.
I know from experience that this is the most likely course.

The water level on the Hotpoint WMA range of machine should be below the door, check out the error code definition at this site. You probably have a pressure chamber blockage or partial blockage. There are also workshop manuals for the Hotpoint WMA & WM machines which run through this sort of repair.

WMA 54 Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine lights flashing


the problem here is the machine is not emptying when its supposed to, you will find it is stopping at the rinse cycles. there is a sump underneath the machine that needs to be emptied. From my experiences, 9 out of 10 hotpoints that i would of repaired with the same problem as you are having is usualy caused by using the color catcher sheets, they are a disaster.

Hotpoint fault?


Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

Door lock


Switch off. Try some WD40 on the machine lock (not on door) and open & close door many times, to ease out the lock.

I have a hotpoint aquarius 6kg washing machine, i need to cancel a progeamme and drain the washing machine as their is a sleeve caught in the door and water is coming out but don't know how to please...


hiya
if the model starts with wm then you should set the timer knob just before a spin setting and it will empty out.

if the model starts with wma,few or wf then you will have to hold in the start button as this will cancel the current cycle and should start to drain.

hope this helps

Goes straigt to spin


TRY CHECKING THE BOARD ON THIS MACHINE ESPECIALLY THE MOTOR CONNECTION. WHAT YOU WILL AHVE TO DO IS PUT THE DIAL IN TO THE OFF POSITION ( ONLY AS GUIDE ) THEN DISMATLE THE BOARD FROM THE FRONT FACIA. HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT THE MOTOR PLUG CONNECTION SECTION OF THE BOARD CHECK TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY TRACKS THAT HAVE BLOWN. I RECONDTION WMA ALL DAY EVERYDAY AND I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE ONCE AND AM THINKING YEH THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. OR IT COULD BE THE TACO ON THE END OF THE MOTOR BUT THIS IS VERY RARE FOR HOTPOINT WMA UNLIKE THE HOOVER MACHINES.
