After looking at a similar post on here I thought the problem with my WMA62 was down to blockage in the waste system somewhere, after removing, cleaning and refitting the filter and drainage hoses etc (and cleaning out a fair bit of crud) its still the same, if you try a spin cycle it gives a short attempt at a fast spin, idles for a bit tries to spin again and then stops, if you try a rinse and spin it fills then tries to spin, idles and stops and does the same on a wash programme. Help!?!

An old thread, but this issue drove me crazy so I'll post in case others suffer. The solution for me was quite simple... I thought the instructions meant empty the waste container for the machine to use it to collect water. So I put it back inside and made no progress. It actually means take out and put under the streamer / coffee outlet to catch the water outside. Off it went all good.
If the machine didnt finish the cycle due to the pump being clogged the door will remained locked also if the lock mechanism went bad, the machine will stay locked. Remove the top of the machine by taking the screws from the top back out. Once removed look down the right hand side and you'll see the lock mechanism, usually with a plastic tab you pull to manually release the lock.
Hi just read your posting.When the machine stops and beeps a series of lights will light up on the wash progress line of lights.Starting from left to right which lights are lit when the machine is beeping,is it the 2nd and 6th or the 3rd and 7th etc?Please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.
Make sure that there is no blockage in
the drain hose and that it is not
Is the drain hose installed correctly?
If you have connected your machine to a
sink waste system, make sure that you
have cut out the membrane from the
under sink drainage system.
Ensure that the drainage system,
standpipe or under sink connection is
free from any blockage.
- If any of the above are found to be
the cause of your problem you will
need to run the machine through a
spin only programme.
If you have chosen ‘Rinse Hold’, the
light will flash until you press the
‘Rinse Hold’ button to continue the
There is most likey a blockage the machine needs to empty firts to progress on to the rinse function. A blockage either in the filter or somewhere along the waste pipe (even where it is connected to the sink ) can cause this type of problem.. If this is not the case then its something else but dont know untill you let us know what machine it is.....
remove the kick plate below the door. youll see a white tray behind the kick plate. theres water in the tray thats activating a overflow switch. with a towel or 2 remove as much water from tray as possible. this will solve problem
Have you checked to see that the waste is not blocked? THis is very
common on these machines and causes the pressure switch not to operate,
making the machine fail to spin or spin with water in the drum,
causing unbalance symptoms.
This is extremely common on Hotpoint machines without a accessible
filter. The filter is in the rubber waste pipe under the drum and needs
to be removed to be cleaned out. When iti s blocked it also blocks the
chamber that operates the pressure switch.
