    Same symptoms.... looked at test papers but unable to determine where thermal switch for motor is located. Door lock active, door light switch works, water fills and when timer works around it drains....so pump is active. Unable to determine if thermal switch is problem or if brushes are worn....does seem to be carbon dust build up as finger tips became

    coated while checking for loose connections. I am suspicious of thermal switch since I did-not get voltage at test points later.

Could be a motor problem, maybe the carbon brushes are worn down & need replacing

My housemate washed two garments in my WT540 AQUARIUS HOTPOINT MACHINE and now water is stuck in the drum and not moving. The door is locked. How do I wash out the water so I can get those two garment


something has blocked the pump I susspect, turn off the machine!!! there should be a small cover or door at the base of the machine, have a baking tray and large towel ready to collect the water, open the pump cover place the tray as close as possible and if you have a small tube inside then remove the plug and drain the water to the tray.if its just the screw cap then unscrew the cap behind the cover anti clockwise, water may begin to empty so be ready to either screw the cap back in or replace the stopper as the water in the machine will fill the tray several times, when all the water is empty check the pump is clear by looking into the hole the water flowed from, remove any obstrustion ( if you have the tube you will also have a screw cap to access the pump filter) when obstuction is cleared, screw caps back in and put stopper in, switch the machine on and select a spin cycle,let it finish and end, this should sort it out.

Hotpoint WF860 drum not turning. Belt checked all ok, no error codes it just fills with water and goes through the cycle filling and emptying when it should and the drum stays still. Can someone help?


ours did the same as this........ it needed a new control board after checking everything you have mentioned. it was a couple of years ago and at that time it was a hotpoint part only. but they can be picked up on ebay for around 30-40 quid.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....


if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Ashing machine not emptying


check the drain pipe is not blocked, to empty the machine manualy get a bowl on the floor and lower the drain pipe into it and fill to stop water flow lift pipe up in air and lower to start draining again when empty if pipe not blocked i would suggest a new pump located under the drum and easy to fit

WF860 drum filling with water


Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly.
In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.

problem may just be that drum is not turning so you think program is stopped. try cancelling and select spin program and see if you get spin
