Hotpoint washing machine going into pause mode

The first thing to always try is disconnecting it from the mains plug overnight. Then in the morning press and hold the power button for 60 seconds. Then plug it back in. The is a Power Reset on a machine that has an electronic mainboard. Does water enter the machine? My guess is that the water inlet valve may have failed. It waits, no water comes, so it times out. There are a few things to check there, make sure there is water in the pipe, make sure the strainer screens are clear in the hose connecter on the back of the machine. No model details given but there is help in the link.

Hotpoint WML730 washing machine keeps tripping the main fuse box? Revised FOUND MY OWN SOLUTION

The washer tripped the breaker once and OR after the breaker was reset it ran additional loads with no problem then it tripped the breaker again. Intermittent problems are always difficult to diagnose because the problem usually doesn't occur when you're making the checks. If the washer ran additional loads the problem will not be an electrical short with one of the washer parts. If the lid switch had a short it wouldn't run additional loads. if the additional loads used the same cycle as previously. A timer can have an internal short that might trip the breaker in heavy duty cycle but not the permanent press cycle. If you have access to a clamp on amp meter, see the image below, then you can check the amp draw of the washer. The washer normally will draw about 10-15 amps at start up and about 5-8 amps while running. The house breaker for you washer should be rated at 20 amps. If the washer is running and drawing less than 20 amps and the breaker trips then if can be a weak house breaker. Mid cycle the washer is most likely draining or spinning and if the bearing or pump locks up then the washer may draw additional amps to try to start and trip the breaker. The key to this problem is what the amp draw of the washer is when the house breaker trips. To narrow this problem down, there are three places that could be causing the ( outlet) GFCI to trip, a malfunction in the washing machine, a problem with the downstream wiring (aka load side of the GFCI-other items connected on same circuit), or the GFCI outlet itself. If there isn't anything downstream, then plugging the washing machine into another GFCI outlet, or simply swapping out the outlet for a known good GFCI outlet, will identify if the outlet itself is faulty. If the outlet trips when the washing machine isn't running and isn't even plugged in, then there's a fault in the wiring on the load side of the GFCI outlet. If the issue is neither of the above, then running the washing machine and monitoring to see which step is occurring when the trip happens will isolate what part of the washing machine may be leaking current to a ground. It could be a certain water level, a motor being engaged, a transition step in the controller, etc Beware some techs believe that most Washing machines or any other motor should not be on a GFCI! Should be a dedicated single receptacle. If there are other outlets on the washer GFCI, replace that GFCI with a single receptacle and put the GFCI on the next jump in order to protect other outlets. Another item to check is ur lid switch which may have gotten moister inside and created a short_ or broken open and the rubber seal dried out over time, and the switch assembly will be exposed. water can splash onto the assembly, somehow causing the GFCI to trip. In any event, if you are having trouble with your washing machine stopping mid-cycle for any reason, test and  HYPERLINK "" replacing the lid switch is probably a worthwhile idea, as it is cheap and easy to replace. By the way my advice is free cuz God is good! door switch jumper-undefined-undefined-0_3.jpg outlet test -undefined-undefined-1.gif test4badmotorwindings4-undefined-undefined-2.jpg doorswitch bypass-lid-switch-unplug-undefined-undefined-3_3.jpg

Hello I've got a Hotpoint WML520 washing machine. I've changed the door electrical switch a few times due to it keep melting. Does anyone any ideas why it keeps happening? Thanks.

They melt due to high resistance across the solenoid and contacts. My only thought it that they were not genuine OEM replacements and were copies on eBay or Amazon and sourced in China. also follow the wires back to the control board and clean the contacts there. I can only find one other incidence of a door lock melting and it is here on Fixya. ....

I have a wdal8640, after a while the condenser pipe gets all fluffed up. Remove the lid, the cross bar and unscrew the metal heating unit. You're looking for the plastic tube that bends down the back of the machine. There's a ring holding it on at the bottom, once you've undone that and worked it over the prongs on the filter it should lift straight out. Give it a good rinse and remove any stuck lint (mine was a solid block that I had to break up before I could get it out), clear the filter whilst your in there and stick it all back together. Don't forget to reattach the water pipe to the top corner!!!

I have a Hotpoint WML730 washing machine. Put it on - the cycle began. I think at the spin point there was bang - the machine had jumped 10 inches. Turned off and on - nothing happened...

Based on the description, it seems that the control PCB module is a possible cause of the issue with your washing machine. Checking for any signs of burnout on the PCB would be a good next step. However, keep in mind that handling electronics can be dangerous and if you're not comfortable or familiar with the process, it's better to seek the help of a professional.

Hotpoint FDEU 9640 washer dryer - stops during dry cycle with all LEDs flashing amber

If your Hotpoint FDEU 9640 washer-dryer is stopping prematurely during the dry cycle with all the LEDs flashing amber, it could be caused by a few different issues:
  1. Check the filter: Make sure the filter is clean and not blocked. A blocked filter can cause the machine to stop working properly.
  2. Check the venting: Make sure the venting system is clear and not blocked. A blocked vent can cause the machine to overheat and stop working.
  3. Check the heating element: If the heating element is faulty, it can cause the machine to overheat and stop working.
  4. Check the thermostat: If the thermostat is faulty, it can cause the machine to overheat and stop working.
  5. Check the control board: The control board controls the various functions of the washer-dryer. If it is faulty, it can cause the machine to stop working.
  6. If none of the above steps work, it is possible that the machine has a more serious problem that requires professional service.
It is important to refer to the user manual or contact Hotpoint technical support for further assistance and specific troubleshooting steps for your washer-dryer model. It is also important to make sure the machine is not plugged in before attempting any troubleshooting steps. It is also important to note that it is not safe to use a multimeter to test any of the heating element or thermostat
