The pump is actually a self cleaning pump, but there is a filter located behind the bottom kick strip at the front bottom of the washer.
To access it you should see 2 screws in the panel, unscrew these and remove the panel, then you will see the filter,unscew it anti clockwise and remove the filter, clean as neccessary, see if you can see anything in the filter chamber. and refit it. This should solve your problem.
Plz leave feedback.

My Hotpoint wdm73 won't drain. how do I fix it?

  1. You will need to gain access to the drain pump through the bottom of the Washing machine. Remove the Drain hoses from the pump, clear any debris, change, etc. If it is clear, or the error continues after clearing, replace the drain pump.
  2. If you replace the drain pump and it still won't drain, you will need a new Control Board.

Could be the pump blocked or not working, check the pump for blockages or wiring faults. For Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit error codes that include flashing lights visit selfix-uk

Hotpoint wf540 stopping on a rinse and spin and

check pump/filter/outlet hose for blockages. if ok, check pressure switch (disc shaped item at top of machine with 4? wires and a tube) by blowing into it gently - should hear clicks, then blow into tube to pressure chamber - should be clear.

Door on Hotpoint WT540P Won't open

I have solved this problem now. I removed the top of the washing machine and opened the catch with a screwdriver to release the door. The plastic handle on the door has snapped so have ordered a new one on line for £5 plus p+p. Should be able to fit it myself. Hotpoint wanted £100 - £160 to come out and fix it. Beware!!

Wd 640

Error code F05 indicates that the water level switch is stuck in the closed position, this is probablly due to a blocked filter or pump.
To gain access to the pump and filter, remove the lower rear panel of washer, locate and remove large black hose fastened to the bottom of tub.
Remove filter inside hose and clean, check inside pump for any blockage or restriction, and make sure the plastic chamber is clean where the small plastic hose is fastened to, as this goes up to the water level switch, and can sometimes get blocked.

Refit filter and hose, making sure it is securely on and fastened, and test, if fault still persists, then you will probably neeed to fit a new water level switch, or preesure switch as it is usually called.
Please rate my solution to your problem.

Water wont drain from Machine or go onto spin cycle

either the level control switch has become blocked or faulty or the drain pump has become stuck.

disconnect from the mains and gain access to the rear look for a circular unit with two or three electrical connections and a plastic tube. this is the level control.follow the tube to its start and you will find a plastic connection that goes into the wash drum, remove the plastic tube from the switch end and blow into it. if there is no restistance then the system is OK at the drum end. next reconnect the tube to the switch and remove the opposite end, very gently blow down the tube and you should hear the switch operate. Test wether the switch is working by putting a meter across the switch and blow into the tube. if all of this is OK then the drain pump is at fault. locate the drain pump. it is connected to the outlet tube, try turning by hand. if it does not rotate smoothly remove the clips holding the pump body together and clear the obstruction.
