Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't complete a wash cycle

My machine had been making a racket when spinning. a well worn pound coin apeared one day and we thought that was it, but now whichever wash programme we use it doesn't advance any further than the wash cycle, just keeps going and going until i cancel, pump out then rinse and spin (these all still work) any ideas?

Sounds like your bearings have gone and thew reason it just keeps going and going is because the heater has blown so it will not move on because it is not heating so u will need new bearings and a heater and that is not a job 4 a novice call an enginer good luck

Washing Machine making a loud whirring noise when water is filling and when the machine is spinning out


Check the motor bearings If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer. Check for Obstructions Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket. Check for Grease Spatter A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing. Check the Drum for Irregularities Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.

My washing machine is making a metallic grating noise on the wash cycle although not all the time. It has also stated to make a louder version of the noise when spinning


Alot of times the underwire of womens bras comes out in the wash cycle and gets stuck in on of the holes of the tub and starts to make the horrible racket. Look in the machine with a flashlight to see if you can spot the culprit. Usually not to hard to spot. I would find it before it gets into the water pump and starts breaking things that are costly to repair.

Washing machine fill but won't go through cycle.


Too empty your machine reset the programmer to Final spin. the machine should empty normally.

If you have a fast flashing light its most likely to be 1 of 2 things.

1. The belt from the motor has broken. (price for belt is less than 20 pounds.)

2. The brushes in the motor have worn down too much to make the drum turn. Look underneath the washing machine to see if black power (Carbon) is deposited under the motor.
(Price for set of brushes is less than 20 pounds)

Labour should be no more than half an hour by anyone decent.
