Question about Hotpoint WMTL80 Top Load Washer

Open Question

My washer's acting up. The timer doesn't turn on it's own. Where can I get a new timer and how can I access it? It's an old hotpoint if that helps. I don't know what year it is, could be an 80's though if it was put here when the apartment was built. Btw the "what is the product about" question forced me to pick a product, but I really don't know which top loading washer it is. All I could find is a number on the back, 143B8673P003, and a cardboard panel covering the back attached by ratchet bolts.

SOURCE: How to remove top panel and front facia on a Hotpoint Aquarius WDF451 washing machine

This is for everyone out there who has a Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 and has trouble removing the top to replace the drive belt. Ignore all the tips you've had in the past as they are innacurate. It is actually quite easy to remove the top. Once you have removed the two rear screws you will be able to lift the lid up from the back, but only a couple of inches or so as it is attached to the front panel by clips. THERE IS NO NEED TO TRY REMOVING THE FRONT PANEL. The top panel actually comes off by moving it back towards the rear of the machine. However the clips are quite tight. All you have to do is go round to the front of the washing maching and give the top a firm tap backwards with the heel of your hand. Don't worry about hitting it firmly as you won't break it. It will come off the clips and hey presto, the top is free. It is as easy as that.

I spent a day and a half trying to get the top off our machine until a friend showed me how it was done. I felt a right tw*t as you will now I've told you the solution.

Replacing the belt is quite tricky. You will have to get someone to help you hold the drum forward as far as possible while you put the belt back in place on the wheel and spigot. You will see that the bottom spigot is notched to take the belt. However, it is much wider than the belt and finding the corrrect position is tricky. It's a case of trial and error, I'm afraid. Place the belt on the bottom spigot (roughly central) and then thread it onto the top wheel. If it is too far over one way and catches the plastic drum you will have to take it off, move it forward a notch and try again. You will probably not have to purchase another belt. Ours came off, didn't look at all worn, so I placed it back on and it has gone okay ever since.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board

A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen

I have a hotpoint , heavy duty large capacity washer and it runs but after each cycle , you have to manualy turn the knob to next cycle for it to work ,it is an older washer but does it just need the knob...


Some of the old washers have a delay between each cycle that seems long but less than 2 minutes. If this is not the cause you will need to order a new timer not the knob. Sorry if its very old it may not be worth it.

Hotpoint wma 64 machine seems to work ok but not turning


hi friend,
Is your washer getting power? The first things to check if your washer suddenly stops working are your circuit breaker, lid switch, or fuse box. After making sure there is power to the appliance, you can start troubleshooting other problems. To verify there is power at the outlet, try plugging in a small electric appliance such as a hair dryer or radio.
Sometimes the motor will overheat and then requires a cool down period before it will restart.
Is the machine in a pause cycle? Is the lid up? Washers will not spin or agitate if the lid is up. There is a lid switch probe that can sometimes become dislodged. This is generally a little plastic piece that is in the hole under the lid on the washer. This probe activates the lid switch when the lid is put down. Manually advance the timer if the pause is too long.
There are some washer models out there that will not run at all until the water is filled to the level that has been selected. Sometimes the mechanical timer knob on certain washers doesn’t exactly line up with the graphics on the control panel. You can try advancing the timer slightly and pull the knob out again to see if it will start.
hope this helps u
thank u for using fixya

I suggest testing theServicing the Timer

Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.
