Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Hotpoint Aquarius WT540

My washing machine as above is holding up water,makes an uncommon sound i.e grinding noise and smells like there is some rubber burning.I figured out that if I use the rinse and spin option it might do the trick. It did spin but when it came to to the final spin the above keeps on happening and the reduce creases, mini load as well as the on/off button starts to blink. The pump out option did not work as well ......btw I can even open the door to take out my soaked washing ... i guess it is because it is still filled with water ..?

Sounds like the water pump is plugged with something. The pump could also just be locked up. The smell is probably the belt slipping on the pulley. To drain the unit you will need to lower the drain hose into a bucket and let it drain that way. Most pumps can be opened and cleaned. It will be inside and attached to the drain hose. It has a pulley on it where the belt rides. If it has a clamp holding the bottom on remove it and the clog. You may be able to do this without removing it from the unit. Let me know if you need further help.

Got a hotpoint washing machine aquarius WT540 think catch is broken how can i open the door

If the catch is broken you are going to need to get at it from inside to release it.

This is usually best done by taking the top or back off and reaching in to release the lock.

Make sure you disconnect the electricty and water before trying this.

When we can see oil in the wash tub and smell of strong oil odor.

sounds like the spyder has leaked oil from the bearings into the drum, does it make a grinding noise on spin?

Drum will not move

Try to remove drum belt, and then turn drum by hand, if it does not turn , then you have either siezed drum bearigs, or some thing jammed between the inner and outer drum
If drum turns freely, then check motor to see if it is free to turn.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 - Grinding Noise From Drum

This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.
