    I have the same problem on my hotpoint wd63. The drum does not turn. I have checked the belt and in line fuse to the motor and they are ok. The drum turns by hand ok. Could it be the brushes?

Check it's not your door interlock. If the 'door locked' lighton the front of the machine is not lit, then you need a replacement interlock.(the switch that stops you openeing the door when it's in motion)

Mits86 , you are correct - it could be the belt.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

To do the belt...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic caps on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel.
If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wd64&part=belt.

6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!
- If the belt is not broken in your case - it could be the brushes on the motor - I can give you info on this if required!

Please dont forget to rate me as fixya.

Hotpoint Aquarius Extra washer dryer WD64 will not drain water. Spin works ok.


Was it working before? You may have a blocked outlet hose. Try taking it off under the sink to look for a blockage. You could also try getting some water in from that end with another hose to see if it comes out into the machine. If it is not a blocked hose, then the pump may be faulty.

Tip

Rattle or leaking condensor on Hotpoint WD64


This website has been good to me so I thought I'd post back!

A common problem with the WD64 washer dryer is the condensor working itself loose from the heater box on the top of the machine. This will result in terrifying banging on spin and, if left, screws and rubber seals appearing under the machine. If left longer, as it was with my own, the machine will leak from the condensor to backplate joint at the back of the machine.

The problem is caused by poor fixings at the condensor (the white plastic piece) to the heater (the silver box at the top of the machine).The solution is to remove the condensor, clean it and refit it with new more robust fixings. Hotpoint provide their workmen with a kit of heavy duty bolts, but I did it with a few loose bolts I had. Save all rubber parts as they are riduculously expensive to buy. I had to by the o-ring from condensor to drum backplate and could only get 5 at silly money. If anybody wants one at a good price I'm kolleykibber on ebay.

I have water leaking from the dispensing tray, only on the pre wash filling..any suggestions I have a hotpoint washer dryer wd64


Check the level of the machine, may be leaning slightly forward allowing water to leak on that one fill cycle. Lift the front a little by using the adjustable feet and see if it stops.

How do i tighten the drum weights on my hotpoint


Remove rear cover, and you will see the concrete weight at the bottom, sometimes the securing nuts work loose, or break off.
There is also a concete weight in the top of the washer as well,so check this as well

Dryer does not work drum rotates but does not dry on hotpoint aquarius washer dryer model wd64. all other functions operate ok


Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wd64 front load washer-dryer filter


if your hotpoint has no obvious filter its likely to be the type that has the filter built into the main exit hose from the drum to the pump. Clearing these is not as easy.Pull machine out and unplug it, on the rear there is a panel at the bottom which when removed you will see the pump where the exit hose attaches. From the pump to the drum is normally a wider black pipe and this contains the filter. removal of the pipe from the bottom of the drum is normally a jubilie clip but some have plastic clips that are easy to break. once you have dropped the pipe from the drum ( water goes everywhere ) you can then remove the white filter assembly which is like a shuttle **** with ping pong ball in it. clean out fully and make sure its all back together as before.

Ref Hotpoint - aquarius extra - WD64 Washer trips the electric just before the end of the wash cycle. Fault always happen at the same point. If manualy turn nob (on to dry) before end of the wash cycle...


I had this problem. It is not to do with the switch.
The point at which it trips, will be when the spin starts to get fast.

There is a design flaw - and this is particularly easy to see in the dark, as you can see the spark!

The bundle of wires that links to the end of the motor rubs against the motor mount, and one or more wires break through the rubber insulation shorting whenever the drum and motor start bouncing around. Find the break, and use a stack of insulation tape to re-insulate - better still, get a professional to replace the wire.

That worked instantly for me, and have no other problems since.
