Hello, the reason for this because theres a dead short inside washer or the socket may have a loose wire check all the earth wires inside the washer and the sockets get back to me if you still have trouble

Hotpoint aquariu 900 keeps tripping electric. I have changed fuse in plug but it still trips


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. We would need to know exactly at what point in the programs it does it ;-0(
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Also as a help for the future there is no need to change a fuse if it hasn't blown ;-0)
Sorry again and good luck,
John C

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42. I was using the machine when there was a bang and the electrics tripped. I reset the fuse box, checked the plug fuse and the socket but still nothing. No lights so presumably no...


It more than likely is the motor that has shorted. Remove lower rear panel, remove belt. Undo 2 screws that hold motor in place, remove motor plug, lever motor back to remove same,
Remove carbons and check for wear, also look at armature and see if there is any sign of shorting, clean armature with emery paper, fit new carbons, refit motor and belt, test.

If it still does not work, then in all probability it will have blown the main control board.which would require replacing.
