Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer
My machine occasionally freezes. It usually occurs during the final spin stage - and the machine can only be reset by unplugging it. I've spoken to a hotpoint engineer (by telephone) who suggests that the fault code displayed (ON/OFF light, Time Saver & Rinse Hold flashing) indicate a short somewhere. It's completly intermittant, and has not improved despite cleaning out the filter bowl, pump, standpipe etc. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a) what exactly this fault code indicates? and b) what repair(s) are needed? Thanks for your help.
This is typical of a control board problem.
About 60% of the time they can be repaired, but it's easier to replace it than keep testing.
If you are competent at electrical repairs, then read -on, otherwise order a replacement, and have it fitted.
Remove top cover by removing screws at top rear, slide cover rearwards.
Control board is on right at the front.
Test connections - remove and replace all connections, checking for signs of arcing.
Check main wiring loom to motor for integrity and damage.
If no signs of damage, remove control unit board, and examine for arcing or poor contacts, overheated components or damage.
If everything still looks ok, a replacement control board should be fitted and the machine tested.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
