It does have a filter but its in an awkward place. first remove the access panel at back of machine. To the right you will see the pump. Follow the pipe from pump to drum and you will notice that its much bigger where it meets the drum. remove pipe at this end and its to take machine outside first.

Drainage pump help.

The plastic clips are a pain to remove but basically push a screwdriver into the clip to pull it apart, buy stainless steel hose clamps to replace them.

Where is the filter on the machine


Unplug the washing machine and turn off the water.

Open the small trap door next to the drain hose connection on the back of the washer to gain access to the filter.

Take care.

Wahing machine washes but will not spin Hotpoint auquarius extra wm836 cant find filter

Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

I have a Hotpoint wma48 and it will not drain the water. It is full of water and none of the programmes will now work, any ideas what might be the cause?

Probably a blocked filter.
Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the plastic filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here.
This should solve the problem.

Does the hotpoint wma48 need a hot water supply connected?

This is true. Just check if the machine has one or two water connections. If it has two you need a hot connection also

Make sure nothing is stuck inside pump, try a drain only prog and you should be able tohear and see if oump is working BE CAREFUL.

firstly you will need to take out the soap drawer and thoroughly clean it and the spray holes that are above the soap drawer. secondly i would reduce the cold water pressure to a fast trickle/jet that way it will not be spraying all over the place. the filter sounds as though it will need cleaning out. unplug machine, from the rear is a metal plate, remove it to gain access to the bottom hose-this incorperates the filter. undo secure jubilee clip and lower hose. remove debris and check the hose and pump for further obstructions. you should be ok after that. try to beat out the dog blankets outside b4 washing to remove as many hairs as poss. tone.
