Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

When i start my Hotpoint Aquarius WDL520 it goes through the motions of starting(i.e. the door lock mechanism engages), then after a period of 5 or so minutes all the lights start flashing yellow rapidly.The washing maching then empties. The drum does not rotate at all. I have enquired to hot(pants) and they say its a problem with the computer. Its now 14 months old with a 1 year manufacturing warrenty. Basically what i can tell from other websites it may be a problem with the PCB??? I take that this is the issue and needs replaced. Can anyone please tell me if thats right and if so how to replace it? Thanks Billy

Yes exactly---
you are right the faulty control board causes this issue.

But initially check this:--remove the hotpoint washing machine top and the control board cover from the door, check if the wiring cables are damaged as they are run through the door hinge .maybe one of the wires are loose that enters in the terminal plug, if yes then reconnect the wire and test.

you can buy parts from.:--

I have hotpoint wma62 and door lock light flashes, machine will not start as door will not lock any clues ???


Hiya,
yes, i can help..

Firstly, lets start simple. Have you noticed the door lever/handle has got "floppy"? or loose? or easy to squeeze?
This is the most common reason, what happens is there are 2 bits of spring steel behind the handle, these either break or become weak, to test this theory, close the door, put your finger between the handle and the door and push the handle towards the glass, if this works then you need a new spring/handle.
Please let me know,
Please rate my help.

Regards
Sussex engineer.

Hotpoint aquarius WDL520 all lights flashing not spinning water still in bowl cant find instructions only bought it at xmas


There should be a small door at the front bottom of the machine, open it and unscrew the plunger. try that first as there could be a blockage.

The machine will not spin until the water is drained out.
