Hotpoint Aquarius Wd63 Banged And Tripped Fuse

Recommended Posts


The washing machine was on then heard a bang, though a belt had snapped or something, then the wife said the power had gone, the washing machine had tripped the fuse.

After putting it back to test, it was just spinning, not filling with water on any cycle.
Have took of the top can't smell anything electrical.
Funny noise coming from a long box that looks like it sits abouve the drum kind of ticking.
Doesn't even sound like it is trying to call for the water.

A friend said sounds like the solenoid, but cant seem to find one for this model

Have looked at troubleshooting guide, non of them fit

Cheers in advance

The tub could have bounced around and cut a wire or hit something and shorted it out. Then again it could have jumped around because of another fault such as on the motor, or the noise could have been something else.. Unfortunately this type of fault is difficult to diagnose without seeing, it could be too many things. You need an insulation test meter to check the electrics for insulation faults. I doubt it's the fill valve. There are some pointers in this article worth checking out though - fusing or tripping electrics
