SOURCE: Hotpoint WT540 1400 spin Washing Machine stuck on cycle

Could be a sticking water level switch, which controls the water level, or a blockage in the hose to the switch, or a trapped or split hose to the switch. the hose in question is about 6mm in diam,and goes from the sump hose to the pressure switch,if u remove the hose from the preesure switch chamber, check for a blockage there, and blow down the hose to see if it is clear, u should hear the switch click if it is clear, if no click and hose is clear, then I wud say the switch is faulty.
Plz rate my comments.
Thanks

SOURCE: can you remove hotpoint bwm 12 washing machine filter

Hi, yes it is. Hotpoint bwm12 is a built-in washing machine, the filter is located at the bottom (black round knob). Undo the filter by turning it to the left (please be sure there's no water inside the machine, or getas much as possible out before opening the filter).
Cheers

SOURCE: washing machine keeps tripping electric switch

Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

My hotpoint Aquarius washing machine keeps tripping out and won't stay on


Hello Russell;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide your model number so I have to be general.

There are 2 components that will shut the dishwasher down after start-up.

Door latch contact switch.

Turn the dishwasher power off at your breaker box. Check to make sure the power is off by turning your dishwasher on.
Remove the front of the control panel. Some units have a small front panel and other units you have to remove the whole front of door. Generally the fasteners are torque screws.
Remove the door switch. Using a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohm setting touch both contacts on the switch with the meter leads and depressing the switch in. If the meter reads 'O' the switch is good. Anything else the switch is bad.

You will have to find the component in the machine that has
gone live to neutral,live to eath or neutral to earth if it is protected by a RCCBO. Check on the back of the printed circuit board for "BLOWS" black marks blown components.

My machine flicks the mains switch as soon as i turn it on, both washing and drying. it first flicked the safety switch about halfway through a dry load...what could it be?


Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

This sounds like a heater issue since it's tripping the power on both the wash & dryer, in events of overheating the machine will trip your power for safty & to prevent the risk of fire however since you mention that it trips the power as soon as you switch it on you could have a blocked pump or burnt out motor too if your finding that the machine is tripping the power earlyer & earlyer each time you retry i would focas on the motor or the pump 1st

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys..
remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

Hotpoint wm53 unknown problem


Hi.
Unplug the motor and try it again, if it does not trip, then the prob is the motor, could be worn carbons.
Re the noise, remove belt, and spin drum round by hand, if it is noisy and rumbling, then main bearings have failed, quite a big job to put right.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WD51 fuse issue


is it the motor that got hot?, if so then check the motor carbons for wear, as these heat up when worn, also if the carbons are fine check the pump and filters for blockages, this makes the motor spin while water is still in the machine causing the motor to overheat, and subsequently tripping and blowing the fuses etc hope i have helped a little
