Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WD61P (analogue) washer dryer, sparking motor (and stopping)

Dear Experts

Appliance: hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WD61P (analogue) washer dryer.

Problem: Motor sparking and keeps stopping.

1) Does this sound like carbon brushes need renewing?

2) How do I tell what type of motor I have (GDP / FHP)?

3) Do I need to remove the motor to renew the brushes?

4) I am trying to remove the motor and need to stop the whole lot moving to undo the bolts.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Cliff

    I may have not been clear enough in my no: 4 ?

    How do I stop the motor etc moving so I can undo the tight Motor bolts?

    Thanks again

You seem to know what your doing. yes you do have to remove the motor in order to remove those carbon brushes, while your at it, you can also adjust the screwing/bearings of the bolts to hinder the machine from moving a lot.

    2) by FHP

    3) depending on your model how it is arranged. better to remove fully

    4) yes please move on

  • dewan nafees ahmed Mar 17, 2008

    also check if if there is any burn in windings.

    if it has been burnt means then u will end up replacing the whole motor.

    thank you sir.

    that is the way

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.

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 - 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.
