Hotpoint Front Loader Washing Machine

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WM63 (i think) which won't turn on. I think the problem is with the door lock, is this easy to fix?

My neihbors Maytag had a bad "wax motor" on the door. It's the locking mechanism. When it went bad it also damaged the control board which I was able to repair luckily. Total cost was less than $50. I don't charge labor..haha. If it's just the lock I'd say <$200. If the control board is bad I'd say >$500.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63 Not Spinning Clicking Programmer


I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long
This would give you the symptoms you are describing.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

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

The heating element for this paticular model is located on the front casing of the drum.. you have to remove the front panel complet with the door and you will see it at the bottom behind a black protective cover.

Sounds like a faulty door interlock (quite a common problem)
UNPLUG POWER first, remove lid, remove screws holding door lock in place and lift lock assembly up, replace door lock, ensuring cables are replaced in the correct order. Refit and test.
Good luck.
