Hi if you pull out the machine so you are faceing the back of it there is a flap at the bottom unscrew the 4 screws if you can lean the machine forward it makes it easier,then with a cross head screwdriver undo the big jubilee clip from the hose coming from the bottom of the machine you will find a plastic ball inside pull that out and then clean the filter replace in reverse order hope that helps.

Hotpoint aquarius wf100 has filled with water and wont drain. how do I drain water out of machine so can check filter etc?? Thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Following is my 'standard' word document, copied and pasted, which should assist you!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Please help the washer fills up and turns the


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

Not spinning or draining


Remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.
Thankyou.

Spin cycle not draining


Hi-ya Brian
Probably blocked filter.
To locate and clean, remove rear panel altogether, locate large black hose at bottom of drum, remove from drum, and you will find the filter located inside the hose.
Check drain hose is not blocked also.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Machine stuck on Cycle and wont cancel


Chances are it is the filter that is blocked, you must remove it completely to check,
Pull ******* the filter to remove it,at worst you may have to break the filter to get it out, it would just mean replacing it with a new one.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Aquarius Hotpoint WD440. 1400 Spin


The next step should be the pump out. If it is not pumping check your pump filter for obstructions. Check the drain hose and also your drain in the wall. If all are clear you may have a bad pump. You should have an error code coming up when the machine stops also, please let me know what it is. Thanks and I hope I can FixYa.

sump hose filter blocked, running out of draining time, when you put it on again it allows more time to drain, remove sump hose and clean out internal filter.
