Question about Hotpoint WMA30 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hotpoint WMA30 is leaking a small amount of oily water from the back of the drum when in use. There is a small hole in the back of the drum, should there be a screw in this hole that has fallen out?

Thwater is leaking because the shaft seal has worn, and the hole is supposed to be there as it is a drainage hole.
The outcome will be that the main drum bearings will eventually fail as the water will get into the drum bearings.
To replace the seal involves a complete strip down of washer. not a job to be undertaken by yourself, unless you know what you are doing.

Hotpoint Aquarius Wma30, leaking water...filter?


There should be a plastic filter fitted in the hose, if there is not, then it should not stop the pump working, unless ther is a blockage in the hose from the drum to the pump, or a blockage in the hose from the outlet of the pump.Try removing the hose from the pump outlet, and blowing down it to see if is clear.
Also the pump itself could be faulty.

Where is the filter on Hotpoint first edition washing machine ?


Hi.
Some of these models, I believe, had a filter behind the front plynth. If nothing there then you will have to get to the back of the appliance.
Disconnect the power supply and remove the bottom back plate.
You will see a black hose that connects to the bottom of the drum and the other end connected to a drain pump.
With a few towels handy (make sure washing machine is empty!) unscrew the large clip holding the hose to the outer drum. Indide this hose you will find a filter. Remove, clean and refit.
Make sure hose is pushed firmly back on the outer drum and the clip fully tightened.

test with a small amount of water in the drum to make sure there are no leaks.

Hope this helps

Water leaking from freezer


Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

My washing machine wont rinse and spin, after washing it will beep as if it was finished doing the washing.


A hotpoint WMA30 does not beep on any program as there is no 'beeper' on the pcb. The 'end' led illuminates when it finishes on any program. The most common cause of no rinse or spin is a blocked filter or drain hose. If there is water in the drum when it has finished then this is the probable cause. However if it's empty when finished and has not spun then either the belt has come off or the motor brushes are worn to a point that there is no contact with the motor armature.

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 wma30 drum wont turn


If it has filled with water, and no lights flashing, and then no motor action I would check the brushes in the motor for wear.
Remove rear panel , remove belt, undo 2 screws securing motor,
and lever motor back, disconnect motor plug, noting which way it goes in, and check brushes for wear
Plz rate my solutioin.
Thanks.

Hotpoint washer dryer leaking water whilst drying


driers work by running cold water down the back plate of the machine so the hot damp air condence's on to it. It works on the same principle as your bathroom mirror, because its colder than the air around it the moistier in the air condence's on to it. Most machines use a seperate inlet valve from the cold water to do this, they are proned to rub against the back of the drum.Take the top cover off the machine and check the hose's from the cold inlet onto the back of the machine you'll probably find a hole worn in it.
