WMA62 Won't Progress Through Programme

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!?!

thanks in advance

John

Check your brushes in the motor if they start to fail then it would act like this failing that then it will probably be the programer.

Hotpoint WMA62 washing machine door won't release


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.

Water will not empty


Hello
you either have a blockage in the filter or you pump is not working.
how to check is diconnect the waste pipe and lower it to ground level if the water does not empty then its a blockage. if it empties then its the pump.
other things it can be is a blockage where the waste pipe is connected or a loose wire to the pump..

Wash machine


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.....

Washer will not drain


Sounds like a blocked or inoperative waste pump. Remove the rubber hose attached to the waste pump and check for blockages such as a small pice of clothing like a sock or similar. Also check the waste pump spins freely.

WMA62


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.
