I have just taken mine apart because it wouldn't drain or spin. Found the filter under the kick plate at the front to the right. No screws for kick plate as it just pulls off. Filter just unscrews. Very wet floor though lol. Cotton wool bud was blocking blade like fan in back of filter recess. Works perfectly now..

Where is the elusive filter located? I thought it was hiding under the flap thing at the bottom but I can't for the life of me work out where it is


If you were to Google "Hot point first edition FEW manual" using Firefox, the results will lead you to "for Hotpoint FEW washer - Laundry Appliances Manuals" at "laundry.manuals online.com>....> Hotpoint Washer".
Download a free copy of the instructions for Installation and Use for Hot Point First Edition Range User Manual.
I have looked through the manual and there is no direct evidence of a filter as such (common to other machines), but there are details of what maintenance should be followed to clean the machine - not too user friendly but may help.
If you do go to the manufacturers website (Hot point is an Indesit company) you will find that previous buyers have asked the same question as you)

Wd440 not drying. how does the fluff get emptied?


Because it is a washer dryer, there is no fluff filter to clean.
It is self cleaning, because the fluff is washed away by cold water entering the condenser and flushing the fluff away.
Trust this answers your query.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

I have a hotpoint wd640 washer dryer: are you meant to clean the filter for the dryer, and if do where is it?!


The dryer part of the appliance does not have a seperate filter to clean as such, as the fluff and lint is cleared away by a constant supply of cold water coming in on the drying cycle.

Hotpoint dryer CTD00


Remove the lint filter at the front bottom left of dryer, and run water through it to clean all the fluff out. Clean the other filter, and make sure the air vents air clear.
Before you replace the bottom filter reach inside the opening and remove any build up of fluff and gunge that you can ,get a plastic bag tie or similar and feel for and poke clear a small hole that is located there.
I f it still does not work, then the element and or stats are probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
