Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

After 13 years perfect service (so, no complaints) our Hotpoint WM25W 1000R front loader has stopped spinning. Power there, water loading ok. It was trying a heavy wash, admittedly, but no joy when that unloaded. Any tips please?

More than likely worn brushes in the motor.
Remove top cover, and disconnect the motor.
The brushes are located at the opposite end to the motor pulley.
Replace if they are less than 3 or 4mm long.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Few12 will not spin after washing, any ideas


Had the same problem. Removed the kick plate at front and unscrewed filter. In the filter recess I found a cotton wool bud. Appeared to have stopped the blade like fan spinning which appears to push the water into the drain hose. Works perfectly now.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....


if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Motor runs, but no spin.


You don't list model number so this will be a bit generic for Hotpoint top loader. If the motor spins but the belt is not moving: With power off, manually turn the large pulley the belt goes around, just a revolution is enough. Spin is CCW, but you may have to try CW (agitation). Now set turn the washer on spin again. This may unlock your transmission, but unfortunately is usually only a temporary solution. If the machine was manufactured prior to 1-1-06 and still under five years old, the transmission may still be covered under warranty. Check the back pages of your owner's manual. (labor would not be covered) If too old / not covered, I'd invest in a new front loading washer. The LG's are #1 rated in Consumer Reports and are direct drive (with a 7 year warranty on the motor) so there is no transmission, clutch, belt, or pulleys. You don't have to get the top of the line model, all LG's are direct drive and very good. Other front load machines, although not DD, will also use much less water than your hotpoint and spin out twice as fast or more, reducing dry time and dry cost. I know this wasn't what you really wanted to hear (bad news), so don't bother rating this "solution". (don't want my rating to go down just because I told someone bad news about there machine.)

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 1300 , front loader


half loads will vibrate more than full load
check transit bolts are removed
if vibration persists, then fault is probably shock absorbers worn

Dear grahamconnor,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!
If the machine is 10 years old or more buy a new one!!
Look at speed Queen washers1 They are commercial and have the best warranty in the industry!
use the least water and wash 8 loads a week for 25 years or more! They start at about $549 for the top loader and 1299 for the front loader, BUT the front loader uses ONLY 13.9 GALLONS OF WATER!
The last washer i will buy! And everyone working in my applaince store has one!

If you decide on service!
Here is a good service that I recommend to my customers,
in our 65 year old appliance business!

A&E Factory Service
1-800-905-9505 -(IN U.S.A.)
They are open to make appointments 7days/24hours
A&E is factory authorized service for most brands!
Including warranty work!!!
They will help you, and all will be well!

Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You

Hotpoint wma 34 front loader will not spin


Open the rear panel and check for a broken belt and whether the motor spins. In case both are OK it could be a bad capacitor issue as well. Good luck!
