WD62 hotpoint washer dryer

Hi there

I'm following your instructions on how to unblock the washer dryer. I've taken off the back panel and then you say pull out the filter and unblock it. Can you explain what the filter looks like please? I've never tried to unblock a washing machine before and I can't tell what the filter is!

Thanks very much for your help.

    The washing machine will not unlock the door. It blew a fuse in the electric plug, we replaced the fuse, the machine runs, but will not release the door.

The filter is a grey piece of plastic which is tube shaped and has holes in it . It can be found in entrance of the black rubber hose which connects the drum to the pump. Release the clip that holds the hose to the drum (be careful about any water that may still be in there) and then look inside the hose end . you can prise out the filter with a bit of force.

You will find the filter located inside the large black hose attached to the bottom of the drum.
Remove the securing clip, and detach hose, you will see the plastic filter inside the hose.
Remove and clean.
Be careful when you remove hose, as there will be some water in it.
Fit back in reverse order, and make sure the hose is on properly.
Plz rate my solution.Thanks.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It calls for a call- to your local service engineer unless, that is, you can change it?
Good luck,

I had the problem. I replaced the water inlet valve, and that fixed it. It seems no cold water was coming in on the drying cycle to condense the steam.

Where do I drain the tumble dry water on a hotpoint wd62 wash/dry

remove the top panel by unscrewing the 3 screws at the back of the washer dryer . remove the top and then remove the back metal panel. the screws are down the side and all around the back of the panel. once you have removed the panel check for the black rubber hose that connects to the drum. remove the clip holding the rubber hose by prising it with a small screwdriver. be careful as the water will flow out quite quickly. Check the hose pipe for any blockages and clear as required.

Lost jewellery in washer dryer

There is a chance you may be able to retrieve it from the fiter if you have one, if not, it may have gone into the pump drain. If you still have the user instruction booklet it may show you how to check this

If not you would need to either remove the lower front panel and then undo the twist cover or turn the machine onto its side and look for a round cap at the end of a stub hose near the pump casing this sometimes has a spring clip securing it around the hose from the pump.

Remove the cap and check if possible, if nothing there, also check the pump on the inlet side by removing the hose.

Remember to disconnect the washer from the electricity supply before attempting this also turn off the water valve.

Please remember to rate this solution.
