    Remove top from machine. remove soap draw, then remove front door seal from front panel. On left sid of control panel remove 4 screws located where soap draw came from. this panel will then come away by gently pulling from left hand side. If you want to romove alltogether then make note of wire positions.The door lock can also be removed by undoing 2 screws just inside door panel. Now remove 3 screws along the top of the front panel, Also 3 screws at bottom of this panel now panel will lift slightly and come away from machine. Now remove the top front piece by removing screws, and pipe which is attatched to soap box. At back of machine remove the lower panel, then remove pipe from bottom of tub, all wiring will need to be unplugged making note of positions. To make thing a little easier you may want to remove concreat block from top of tub. The tub is now ready to lift out from machine, lift upwards to release top springs, and the shocks under tub then bring tub forward, take care of wires and motor. The tub then splits into 2 halves. Try and remove bearings before you purchass new ones as there are 2 differant sizes fitted. If youget stuck you may emailme at archie4805@yahoo.co.uk and I will try to help. this is by no means an easy job.

SOURCE: Hotpoint WMA74 does not pump out after programmed

No test available other than:
Remove pump - check motor will turn by rotating impellor. There is a slight resistance then moves freely, then slight resistance and freely again. This is correct for this machine. worth checking there is no hair, elastic band or other obstruction around the impellor fins and shaft whilst the pump is out.
There is no spin cycle so you have to use rinse & spin, which means if the pump is shot you need to empty the machine each time :(
Worth checking lower filter as stated and blowing down the drain hose whilst the pump is off to check for obstructions.
The resolution to my problem was a new pump - £20.
All working fine again now !

Started to get a whinning, grinding noise on starting the machine and especially on spin cycle. is it the bearings and how much to repair?


yes it sounds like the bearings are damaged due to the ingress of water. It's a costly job, but if you're a good diyer you could try it yourself.

Hotpoint wma74 wont spin


It could be the motor's carbon brushes have worn out. Replace with the same type. Need to get at the motor, you simply unscrew and slide out. If they are hard to reach then you will have to take the drive belt off and remove the motor and then take them out. These brushes provided the electricity to the motor in order for it to spin.
