Could be the brushes, only way to prove it is to remove the motor and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4 mm long, then they need replacing. If brushes are o/k, then it is probably a control board fault.

My machine hotpoint WMA54 takes the water but the drum does not turn, what could be the problem? thanks


Could be motor brushes in need of replacement.
To check them, remove lower rear cover of washer.
Unplug motor and remove earth wire, remove drive belt.
Undo 2 screws securing motor to drum, and lever motor off
the mounts
Replace brushes if less than 3 or 4 mm long.
If brushes o/k, then could be control board problem.
Check all connections between module and motor.
Please rate my solutioin.
Thankyou..

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius flashing lights


My wife had the same problem last night.This morning when I turned the m/c on, there was a lot of noise and when I looked underneath, loads of sparking. Closer investigation shows I need new brushes and I imagine that if the drum on your machine is not turning, you do too.

However you said that you can hear the motor? That may indicate a belt problem instead. get someone to turn the machine on it's side and manually turn the drum. If the motor rotates it isn't a belt problem and someone needs to test/repair your motor.

Hope that helps a little.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


If the machine pumps water inside but does not start :

Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details , see: It doesn't spin

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin


Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.
