Have you got the drain pipe going up to about worktop level of machine?
if the drain just goes downwards then the water just runs out as fast as it comes in. get a sililiar situation if you put drain pipe too far down a standpipe - then a syspon forms and water drains out

Hotpoint first edition WMA10 making a bangin noise during wash programme. Cannot find filter in order to clean. trishisfit2000@yahoo.co.uk


I have the same model at work only under the frigidaire branding. The shock mounts for the
drum are made of plastic and can break (especially if the unit is moved without the
shipping screws) If one breaks the unit will make a clunking sound.

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water


hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

Washing machine WMA54 Hotpoint sticks on prewash


I realised that the washer was not filling properly with water!  So I pulled it out from the wall and noticed the cold water fill pipe had been squashed and had a kink in it so not enough water was getting through.  I remedied this by pulling the pipes through the under sink cupboard and securing them with gaffer tape,  Hey presto the machine now works again!  Hooray :D

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
