    The machine has emptied all the water. The problem is the door handle is very loose as if something has broken. You move the handle and there is no resistance. I wondered whether there might be another way to open the door other than using the handle

Depending on which part has gone, some hotpoints door trim post snaps which makes too much play not allowing door to open, in this case needs new door trim. others need drum to be empty of all Water, or could be door interlock faulty .give it a slight bang with your hand to ease open, remember has a 3 min delay on door....

Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?


Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

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.

I have a Hotpoint ultima stream washing machine (WMA63) which the light says the cycle has ended but the water will not empty and we cannot open the door, any suggestions??


first to empty the machine--lower the drain hose at the back below the tub into a basin--once all the water is out--wait for about 3 mins and the door will unlock--then check your filter--probably pump prob

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.


This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

WF100 door wont open


The interlock has jammed, first try gently pushing the door frame on the latch side of the door and then hit the outer door frame with your fist, not too hard but a reasonable bang this may release the door, if this works spray a lubricant into the latch hole in the panel, open and close the door a few times before reusing, if this fails then you have to force the door open, the best way is to remove the lid and manouver the door lock from the inside, either the lock or the latck will eventually break, this is unavoidable, then replace the interlock and any other broken part.
