Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, My hotpoint Aquarius WMA50 washing machine has just sparked and blown all the electricity off. I changed the fuse but this had no effect. All the dials are off and the machine will not come on. My wife said it was making a funny noise just before it blew. Any ideas or assistance gratefully received??....Thanks.

Hotpoint aquarius 1000 (wma50p) not taking in water, and i cannot move the drum by hand.


Hello, it sounds like the main motor has blown. This causes the pump to stop as it is connected to the pulleys and gearbox. The only solution is replacing the main motor. Even though it sounds expensive, it should only cost around $100 plus fitting.

The motor does not have provision for belt adjostment, it is self tensioning
To gain access to the brushes, you need to remove the motor from the washer.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, unplug motor lead, taking note which way the plug goes,undo screws securing motor, and lever motor back with a screw driver, remove motor and change brushes.
