20 Most Recent Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer - Page 5 Questions & Answers

For most front-loaders:
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.

(There is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)

It does, but our loving friends at Hotpoint put the filter UNDER the drum and it can only be got to by drgging the machine out and attaching from the rear. The filter is the size of a large coffee mug, covered in rubber, directly below the cetrre of the drum and held in place by a large jubilee clip. Remove the clip, pull off the rubber boot and inside is a white conical "pot" with a ping pong ball in it. HOWEVER. Before you do this, if you are getting smells, first take 3 DISHWASHER tablets, throw them in an empty washer and put it on the hottest whites cotton program you can. Modern biological powders use bacteria to "eat" stains and when they get trapped in the machine, they can smell. Dishwasher tablets are made to wash and to KILL bacteria. It may help. Its a good thing to do anyway every now and again and it may save you a fruitless job dragging the machine out for no reason.

You will have to replace the door lock wax motor.

Are you around when the breaker trips? It almost seems as though an electrical connection is getting wet. Especially if it won't let you reset the breaker. Another reason for not letting you reset the breaker could be an overload that tripped but that to me would be within the machine, it shouldn't trip at the panel. You get pull the machine apart and check for these things. Look for and wetness or wire connections being crossed, anything like that. Something at the spin cycle is shorting out and tripping out your breaker. Also is your dryer circuit properly sized (30AMP Breaker with 10/3 wire)?

the motor brushes are probably worn out, unplug washing machine before you check.

If you have ascertained that the door is closed properly, and that the door handle does not feel floppy or weak, then chances are it could be faulty module, as this supplies power to the door lock.

wahing machine must of filled but then stopped on wash wont spin or rinse lights all on any ideas

Hotpoint... | Answered on Mar 29, 2010

Seems like a blockage or maybe pump worn out. Fill machine and take grey outlet pipe on rear of machine. Place this pipe as low as possible into a bowl. If water flows free from this pipe then your pipes are not blocked and most likely you will need to change your pump. Before you try this just put machine onto spin and ensure this will work when machine is almost empty

Something stuck between drums or possibly heating element touching inner drum.

It depends on where you live, and who you call.
If you call Hotpoint, then the callout charge is nearly £100.00.
If you call an independent repair man, then you can expect to pay anything between £4.00 and £60.00 for the call, plus the cost of the belt.
Hope this helps.

There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
Please rate my solution.

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,
