I had this problem. It is not to do with the switch.
The point at which it trips, will be when the spin starts to get fast.

There is a design flaw - and this is particularly easy to see in the dark, as you can see the spark!

The bundle of wires that links to the end of the motor rubs against the motor mount, and one or more wires break through the rubber insulation shorting whenever the drum and motor start bouncing around. Find the break, and use a stack of insulation tape to re-insulate - better still, get a professional to replace the wire.

That worked instantly for me, and have no other problems since.

Hotpoint Aquarius Extra washer dryer WD64 will not drain water. Spin works ok.


Was it working before? You may have a blocked outlet hose. Try taking it off under the sink to look for a blockage. You could also try getting some water in from that end with another hose to see if it comes out into the machine. If it is not a blocked hose, then the pump may be faulty.

I have water leaking from the dispensing tray, only on the pre wash filling..any suggestions I have a hotpoint washer dryer wd64


Check the level of the machine, may be leaning slightly forward allowing water to leak on that one fill cycle. Lift the front a little by using the adjustable feet and see if it stops.

Dryer does not work drum rotates but does not dry on hotpoint aquarius washer dryer model wd64. all other functions operate ok


Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Aquarius extra WD64 not turning the drum


Hi Thanks for emailing back I traced the fault to a wireing break in the fused cable. the cable must have got a nick in it and slowly through time arc with the frame of the machine and severed the cable stopping power flow to the drum motor.
Found small amount of black residue on the cable, didnt see it because it was under the black splash shield.

fixed fault by cripping a junction across the break on a fresh cut and bare cable.

Hotpoint fault?


Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

Hotpoint WD64 No power - help please !


hi from n/west uk from the symptoms you describe ? that you have no lights on machine? this is most definately total power loss to machine so if you are certain? the fuse is ok? next is has the wire/lead from plug chaffed or damaged breaking the supply? this next possibility may sound odd but the socket you plug machine into ? may be faulty ie the damp location at rear of machine could have caused deteriation of socket terminals or wires even the wire may have broken/come loose? have had this happen in homes and caused by wires not secured properly and eventually arcing/ resulting in power fail at socket ? may i suggest try another elec appliance ie lamp/hoover/ iron? to check if socket is operating just to eliminate? also if the socket is a fused type? make sure this fuse is ok too? finally have you checked consumer unit for possible seperately fused/trip out for the machine use socket ? hope this helps find fault best wishes
