My washing machine has started beeping during the wash cycle - why?

Try running the same wash cycle with no clothes in the machine, just the water.
If it does not beep you are overloading it or the load is unbalanced.

Our hotpoint ultima wmd960 washing machine timer stops with one minute remaining, but continues the wash cycle on 'a loop', and does not pump the water from the drum. We turn it off and then put it...

Have a look at this and check if your pump is full of things lost from pockets:

However, I suspect the problem is really that something is causing the controller to (falsely) register an unbalanced load, and continually running the wash to try and redistribute the items.
Sorry I'm not sure what the fix is for that - could be motor tacho, or could be controller itself.

Where is filter on my hotpoint aquarius wmf540 washing machine, im getting white fluff over all my clothes everytime i put a wash on, im guessing the filter needs cleaning and just wondered where it is

see last page.

also, you should try run a cycle without any clothes (add a bit of bleach) in it in cold water for once to rinse out the dirt.

Two speed auto washer - found water all over floor - no leaks on any hoses or drain. Wife said last load was unbalanced and machine was rocking around bad. Tub seems very wobbly to me when I move it...

having a very unbalanced load can cause the water to go over . yes the tubs are supposed to be able to move around a load with no clothes in it if it leaks then you may have a more serious problem

The rinse cycle does not work, but everything else does

I don't know if the problem is solved but last night we ran the washer without any clothes in it and everything seemed to work fine. My wife was able to run a load of laundry and it seemed to work. I hope it was just too much clothes the first time it stopped or the washer was just acting up. Either way, I had nothing to do with the fix. Sorry I couldn't be any more help. Thank you for the link to assistance plan, it might come in handy in the future.

Thanks again,

Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer

you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.
