Re: hotpoint bwm129 making huming noise
Sounds like the rinse water can't come. Maybe the solenoid for cold water got stuck or a water filter needs cleaning? If the humming is louder, perhaps the drum motor (or drum) needs a little care or cleaning.
If all else fails, download the user manual and check the trouble checklist index. (Or; try learning your kenpo succession move sparring against laundry to clean it.)

Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
Confirm wash arm has rotated
Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
Use small tweezers to remove
Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.
Problem is too much soap. Wrong soap. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.
Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.
Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
Sounds like you have a heater problem. Program 5 should take around an hour and 6 should be around 30 min, both with the heater on according to asko's manual. So I would get the heater element checked.
Answer to your question "Is there any way to set them different?" Short answer is no. The Maytag Neptune like many other washers that display a time of cycle first start with an estimated time this relays a lot on the last cycle ran. But, more importantly it also takes into consideration other washing options. For example, lets say that your quick wash cycle used to only display 35 min. now if you select an extra rinse option the time will increase from that 35 min. to a higher amount of time. This is due to the longer time it takes to go through a second rinse cycle. The MAH5500 if I'm not mistaken also has a heater in it so there are options such as sanitize which takes 120 degree hot incoming water (suggested temp. for hot water heaters) and heats it to approx. 165 degrees. And as you can imagine this takes a washer some time to do this (increasing wash time). If you would like to lower washing time check the washing options and remove any that are not needed at that time; pay close attention to extra rinse cycles and the soil levels that are selected. Hope this helps. Cheers.
Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.
If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.
1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize 2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil) 3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil) 4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items) 5. Rinse & Hold.
These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.
If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:
1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil) 2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil) 3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items) 4. Rinse & Hold.
With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.
I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.
I'm and owner and will try to help. Are you handy and do you want to try a DIY fix? From the wash times is sounds like the washer is agitating the wash load (tumblers are rotating the wash basket load) is that correct? If so see if the machine will complete a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Set the Spinsetting to Spin/Hang dry seting and start the cycle.It should take about 10 min complete.Does the Spin Only cycle complete with no clothes in the wash basket? Some handy links if you are going to DIY.........Service Manual for reference.
Hello djlampl, With the lowest spin cycle setting I enter spin cycle in Quick Wash around the 21 minute mark.But first question is do you hear the grinding noise with the tumblers rotating during the wash/agitate cycle? If you start a spin only cycle do you hear the grinding noise? Does the washer error code out with an error code to the display?Codes such as dC, uC, Lr?, I assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW is that correct? Any additional info will help in troubleshooting…..Rich Assuming the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A here are some handy links; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
