Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Hotpoint WD440 Hello.... I have the above washing machine thats decided to go **** up.... Symptoms... The machine will carry out a Prewash programme successfully.. all the way through When I select any other programme the maching will go through the wash cycle but when it moves onto the rinse and spin (Light Comes on) the machine will just alternate between forward and backwards slow tumble.... If I then turn the machine off and back on the wash light will keep flashing .. I have emptied the filter at the base of the drum and checked the pump not blocked all looks clear the water coming in has been checked ie turn each off and on one at a time and can confirm that water enters the detergent tray.... Questions: Whats different between prewash and normal wash... might help to solution.. Im down to 2-3 possible things ... Heater element / Sensor but i presume that pre wash would have stuck if this was shagged.. The presure valve at the top left of the unit behind the detergent tray or lastly the PCB board if so where can I get replacemnet.. Thanks in advance Jim Bailey

    soapy water comes out of the valve at the top, back of the washing machine. we use HE detergent and have been careful not to use too much.

On the power pcb panel, there is an eeprom. This gets corrupted and throws the machine into a frenzy. A replacement should include a new pcb and a new eeprom. Only from dealers unfortunately.

one of the water valves (dual valve)may be faulty. also check the sython tube in the soap drawer is not blocked its the cover of the conditioner compartment.see if the programme will run on a prog with pre wash suspect not as prewash valve faulty. uses both valves to empty conditioner.

I have had the same problem. If you switch the machine to off and then to cotton/linen 95, then press at the same time prewash, soaking, qick wash and stain buttons for 10 seconds switch it off. When I switched it on it worked.

Pre wash not happening

poss blocked filter which also controls your pressure system, on your machine I believe if the prewash ligbt is flashing it would indicate a blockage there
