SOURCE: Washer won't run....

It seems as an overload issue. The machine has an overload switch to protect the motor. Take the comforter out and operate the machine,it should work fine. Good luck!

I contact a pro engineer. explained the problem and what I had already done.

He told me it was a common fault and it would cost to much to fix and I'd be better buying a new machine.

SOURCE: I have a problem with my hotpoint WD640

Check the resistance of the heating element it should be anywhere between 0.6 OHMS to 26.7 OHMS. Then make sure the thermal fuse is not blown. Resistance between it's terminals equals to 0.0 OHM

Update me about your progress

SOURCE: Ge Adora washing machine counts down, but won't wash.

It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


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 you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin

A broken agitator paddle can cause your clothesto tear. Don't let this happen when replacing one is relatively simple.
The plastic paddles in the drum on the later washing machines (WMA models) often come looseand come off altogether. They can be replaced. call them lifters. You usually insert a smallscrewdriver down one of the holes (it's the 3rd one on ) and gently press downwhile sliding the lifter out.
Washing trainers in a washing machine is reputedto damage the drum lifters and paddles inside the drum, particularly onnon-quality washing machines.
There are few types of drum lifter; drum Paddle lifters

On hotpoint, creda, Ariston ,indersit and someother makes see video
To fit new paddle, make sure the retaining lugis up slightly see video, line up the lugs on the paddle in the slots in thedrum, and push firmly with both hands towards the rear of the drum, you shouldfeel it click into place, make sure you fit it the correct way round and youare fitting the correct paddle lifter for your washing machine.

Hotpoint wma54 washing machine


sorry but not the job i would recommend to anyone not done or watched it done before its about the most difficult job to do on any machine, even though in my 20 years experience this is the easiest machine to do a drum bearing change on, most of the machine has to be stripped down, removing all the front panel / timer panel / door seal and drum front / drifting out the old bearings fitting the new ones and rebuilding the machine, not counting testing for and rectifying any damage the drum has done to the rest of the machine and surrounding parts, good luck if you attempt it, sorry
