Question about Hotpoint WMA58 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Hotpoint WMA58 washing machine is not heating the water so the cloths are only getting washed in cold water. Will this be the heater element that has gone? If so how do you change it.

We had this problem & called our repair man in. We had accidentally knocked the 'Variable Temperature' dial down too low. It should ALWAYS be set to max (95). The programmer will still sort out the correct temperatures for the different programmes, such as cold wash, but setting that to whatever temperature means that that is the max it will ever reach, Since then, we have not had that problem again.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA58 (about 16 years old) is leaking, seemingly from under machine (back looks dry), and leaving clothes wet after spin cycle. Door seal seems sound.


no not worth repair at 16 years old
its got issues with aging worn motor
not spinning fast enough
door seal if you can buy one
may not be the water leak fix

Washeing machine not heating up


It sounds like either the cable's have rusted off, fallen off the water heater element. Or the Water heater element has failed.

We have no hot water boiler kaput - will washing machine heat water (hot wash) if only cold water is going into inlets.


Yes. The washing machine contains heating element and a thermostat. It will try to get water from both hot and cold sources and will heat the water to the required temp.

Hotpoint aquarius will not heat water


Hi,

Although I do not know your particular machine I strongly suspect that the heater element is malfunctioning/broken. Even if it is a hot and cold fill it still requires the element to heat the water up to the correct temperature for the selected wash. If it is cold fill only it certainly needs the element all of the time- apart from rinses!
Sorry but it depends now on who you have at hand to repair as to your next step.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WD420 washer/dryer that is not heating the washing water, yet does heat when in drying mode. Does the machine use the same heating element for washing and drying, or are there...


There is a seperate element for the water heater. so likely to be a faulty heater or thermistor which is fastened toi the element
You really need a test meter to determine which part is faulty.

Hot point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)


All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

ZANUSSI ZWD162701 washing always comes out cold - WHY?


Washers are meant to rinse in cold water, so clothes should come out cold.
If you are not sure if it is getting hot, then select a very hot wash, and feel the door glass periodically, it should gradually get hotter, if it does not , then it is washing in cold water only.
This could mean that the heater element has gone.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hoypoint WMA58 won't empty


As you have probably found out, hotpoint washing machines do not have any customer accessible pump filters...

If you want to get on and fix this yourself you will need to get machine out and tip it up. have a look underneath. You will need tools etc.

1. Firstly check the power is off / disconnected.

**Next double check the power is off / disconnected.**

2. Check for obstructions inside the sump hose leading to the water pump. These machines have a filter/flap located in the sump hose which can get jammed up. See link http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=636775&brand=&model=WMA58&part=sump

3. My bet is that the pump itself is faulty. Check visually for blockages inside it - (do not dismantly)
For a replacement see the following for info on the pump. http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=640428&brand=&model=WMA58&part=pump

4. Finally I have heard of hotpoint wma's failing to pump water because the heater element is faulty -because water temp never reaches correct heat so programme halts.- but I cannot confirm this. To prove this put your machine on Final Spin - the first thing it does is empty the machine - no heating...
if it does then its probably the heater.

Regards

And don't forget to rate; thanks!
