Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Off and on grinding sound during wash cycle. 'Stage dial' needs help moving to the next stage. Eventually cycle stops and door unlocks with machine still with dirty water in it.

sound like the contact points on the timer are probebly dirty or arched to where they are not making good contact. you can take and clean them with a piece of emery cloth if you are mechanically inclined and can take the timer apart. Also there's a set of contacts down by the motor ti check too.

if your hotpoint has no obvious filter ( small flap on front ) its likely to be the type that has the filter built into the main exit hose from the drum to the pump. Clearing these is not as easy.
pull machine out and unplug it, on the rear there is a panel at the bottom which when removed you will see the pump where the exit hose attaches. From the pump to the drum is normally a wider black pipe and this contains the filter. removal of the pipe from the bottom of the drum is normally a jubilie clip but some have plastic clips that are easy to break. once you have dropped the pipe from the drum ( water goes everywhere ) you can then remove the white filter assembly which is like a shuttle **** with ping pong ball in it. clean out fully andd make sure its all back together as before.
Not easy but the blocked filter causes so many hotpoint issues. Its a pain the way they have built it inside the machine rather than making it user friendly.
