Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

We've got a Hotpoint Aquarias extra 1300 spin washer - had it for about 7 years. It has suddenly started leaking water from underneath (ie not from the pipes going in or out of the machine). Does this sound serious (ie will probably need to replace it?) or worth getting repaired (for under approx £100?)

Hello, if its leaking from underneath the chances are there is a hole in the drum due to a coin damaging the plastic after getting trapped between the steel dum and the plastic outer drum. you would need a new drum only maybe try ebay for around £30 then a good diyer could do for you or expect to pay around £40 to remove old one and fit replacement

When it goes into full spin , it makes a large banging noise and leaks from underneath,


When our Hotpoint started making banging noises like a road drill I found the bearings were shot. When I stripped it down one of the arms on the spider had sheared off, was lucky it didn't cause any damage. The leaking may be due to a faulty hose clip or split because of the vibration. There's a lot of diagnostc and DIY tutorials on YouTube. Worth checking the drum bearings.

Our washing machine is leaking at the front. What are the most likely causes please, and how can I fix it. It is a Hotpoint Aquarius Extra WMA36 1300 spin. Thank you


It is so common that water leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked from the front then the door gasket can be fault and needs to be replaced

please check this link:

If there is leak at the bottom as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Whirlpool ultimate care extra large, about 10 years old. when the machine is in spin cycle, it throws the circuit breaker. It started with a heavy load, but now it seems to do it all the time. It started...


Water leaking from tub seal into motor possibly? Try doing spin with dry newspaper under the machine and check for leaks. Could also possibly be water heater element loose or breaking down - leaks from drain hose or water pump body into windings? Dry news paper test should highlight where leaks are coming from.
!0 years old is ancient for a machine and you might consider replacement rather than a repair which will only be throwing good money after bad. Do you drive a 10 year old car? if you do, you expect repair bills to mount up! same with washer. I bet it doesn't owe you much!

Started having a noisy rinse & spin cycle, then stopped.


Open the washer door and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed. There should be little or no noise when you spin drum
This is a major repair, and I would not recommend a D.I.Y solution.
Other possibility is there is something in the pump, but you would only hear this when the pump is working.

Plz rate my comments.
Thanks.

Water leaks from the soap dispensing tray on Hotpoint WMA 56 model


In the sump hose there is a filter, remove the hose and clean out filter insert, water is being forced up dispenser hose because it cannot empty fast enough.
