Hotpoint ultima extra wma64

Q about a hotpoint ultima extra washing m/c. The m/c wont spin, will pump in water and pump out again have checked the outflow pipe/filter is not blocked and the brushes were replaced about 6 weeks ago when it stopped before. This time when the water pumps in the m/c try's to start the rinse/spin but seems like its stuck. It will move an inch or so but then a whineing noise for about a second and then it pumps the water out again, took brushes out again and checked they still seem to have plenty left on them as far as i know. motor and drum seem to move freely by hand, could the brushes be faulty as it worked fine when the new brushes were installed but now it doesnt seem to want to do anything. any help would be most appreciated, thanx wayne

    thanx again

check the wires which run from the motor up to the main pcb, it's quite common for these to rub together and break. i have came across this a number of times now.

hope this helps

My hotpoint washing machine wma64 will not spin

Dear Blaze,

Here is a link for a service manual Hotpoint WMA64 Installation And User Instructions Manual

The drum motor, its brushes, the belt, or idler arm roller, and the drum roller bearings can all be suspect. Here is a link that supports the statement Hotpoint Ultima Extra Wma64 Drum Not Turning E32 Fault Code Hotpoint...

Here is some conversation not relevant to your statement but maybe associated later on Faulty Hotpoint WMA64 DIYnot com DIY and Home Improvement .

I suggest when it is repaired to do a service wash to clear the drum of buildup.

Fare. Well.

Ultima extra wma64 drum is loose and rattling

Your bearings have broken up in the drum. This is a very difficult DIY fix since it involves stripping the front from the machine, taking out the drup assembly, splitting it, knocking the centre spindle free and then knocking out the machine pressed bearings and replacing them.

It CAN be done by an ameture. I do it occasionally when I am repairing machines and I constantly moan about the fact that I really need to build or buy a tool to knock the bearing out. Despite the fact that the new bearings will cost about £20 ($30) ish, this is a nightmare job. Your local repair man will probably come and fit a refurbished drum for you (Then take yours away and refurbish that for his stock when he has time).

If you have never done anything like this, my best advice is that this is NOT the time to start!

Get a quote, then decide if you want the machine repaired, or to go buy a new one I'm afraid

E15 code on display of Hotpoint ultima extra WD72.

E15 means that it is not draining fast enough. As well as checking the outlet pipes, check the filter leading to the pump. Disconnect the power and pipe. If possible take outside because there will be a residual amount of water. Remove the back panel, then disconnect the locking rings holding the tubes on. Your main target should be the big downflow rubber tube from the drum, in here is a plastic filter. In mine I found a child's sock... plus slime. Problem solved.

Will not spin.

could be a couple of causes.First take off panel at back of machine and check that belt is in place.
Has it been noisy on spin lately?

Leaking machine

Could be caused by several reasons.
1- Overfilling, check water level .
2-Blockage in dispenser, or dispenser inlet hose to drum
3-Drawer not in properly.
4-M/c not draining properly, thus when it goes into spin, water could be thrown up by centrifugal force, and come out of the front of the drawer.Check filter.
5-Water pressure very high, forcing water out of drawer, adjust pressure.
Plz rate my soution.
