SOURCE: UL Code

Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust?  The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles.  Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around.  Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load.  That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.

SOURCE: my washer will not spin and drain

The load was probably unbalanced enough to trip the safety and shut the machine down. Have you tried running it again empty since then?

SOURCE: drum is not moving

Hello, I have a couple of question before we can provide a diagnosis and ultimately a solution. Does it rotate in either direction for the wash cycle ? Does it spin if placed in just the spin cycle ? Would it be possible to provide a model number and maybe confirm it's a Bosch washer ? I will try and be helpful, but I'll need a little more detail. I look forward to seeing your reply. Macmarkus :)

Hotpoint ultima washing machine wma74 drum not turning

If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long

My Hotpoint Ultima WMD 960 displays "F04" on the display panel before the programme ends. Have cleaned the filter and it worked OK in spin mode and finished normally but now have put in a washing load, it...

Error code F04 means pressure switch jammed on empty.
Do the following.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside the hose.
Remove the hose on to the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

My hotpoint ultima wont spin, its as thought something is preventing it for spinning. When its switched to spin cycle it turns a little to the left, then a little to the right, but cant seem to go any...

Things that couse this are, worn motor brushes, unplug remove the top, the motor should be at the top, if so remove the wire attached to the spade of the grey cartridge then unclip using a very thin screwdriver pushed down the back of the cartridge, and slide out if there is only a small peice of brush showing they must be changed, if ok spin the drum by hand if it moves freely the the drum is ok, the last thing to check is if it moves through the wash, but its just the spin that it wont move, there is a blockage, and the preassure vessel wont allow it to spin.

Drum wont move

Check the motor and the belt on the back of the unit behind the rear plate. Make sure that the belt is attached and the motor is spinning. If this helped please rate. Thank you

How do I replace the belt that makes the drum spin on a Hotpoint Ultima WF860 ?

The belt goes around the drum and onto the motor pulley. No need to loosen anything. Put tension on the belt and fit it onto the motor pulley by gently turning the motor and pushing the belt onto the pulley at the same time.
