Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Drying cycle runs but does not dry clothes

After washing one evening, the clothes had almost stuck to the outside of the drum during the spin cycle. Subsequently when drying later I noticed the machine making a funny sound - I stopped and checked the load to find that there was a burning smell - I am presuming that the drying element may have burnt out due to the fact that no air could enter the drum because the clothes were stuck in the drum holes?? If anyone could advise if this is the case and the element needs replacing or if something else has burnt out?? Currently the drying cycle runs but the clothes are still wet afterwards? Regards Martin

More than likely that your thermostats have blown if you could smell the heater element getting hot then this will be the case m8

During the spin cycle it spins correctly until the last 2-3 minutes and then it just fluffs clothes


Some machines used a variable speed slow down process to avoid clothing damage, this removes the items from the outside of the drum where if the clothing was left for a length of time after the cycle has finished it could damage the fibres, this way the clothing is also easier to remove from the machine and promotes airflow over the items

check the agitator module unit and the start capacitor both in the back of the control panel One controls the agitation and the other starts the motor. If the start capacitor is failed simply replace it with a new one The agitator module will cost more . Have an appliance electrician check it out.

HI. your unit is equipped with a spin control board. this board, if damaged, will not initiate an adequate spin. This will not allow for proper drainage and drying of the clothes. The spin motor regulates the rotation speed during the spin cycle. It seems to be the culprit at this time. Have the spin board replaced asap.

This part will usually cost around $150.00 at the most.

My LG TROM wash googd but dosn't want to spin


Check and see what type detergent you are using. I bought regular liquid detergent and the machine began making noise during the spin cycle and the drum would not spin. I was informed that you have to use detergent that is labeled HE (High Efficiency). The regular liquid detergent will suds up during the wash cycle which then causes the drum to slip and not spin during the spin cycle. What you are hearing during the spin cycle is the drum slipping. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and let it reset. This lets the suds dry out. Run a cycle with no spin to rinse out the drum. This should eliminate your problem. If you have clothes in the machine, run a cycle with no spin, just don’t add any more detergent. Then run the normal cycle with spin a second time with no detergent. I hope this cures your problem.
