Question about Hotpoint WMA46 Front Load Washer
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It does sound as if the motor requires replacement unless the belt is slipping- but I think you would have heard that! It could be the controller but probably motor, especially if the washer isn't exactly new ;-0)
It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor (and belt at the same time) on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
Clearly the choice is yours!
