Remove power first! The pump is very easy to remove, ( unlocks from the base ) take the pump apart and check for foreign objects inside the pump assy. The power wires pull off and matters not which way they go back on. Also check the hoses to and from the drain pump for any  foreign objects. The pump is usually at the back right side ( looking at the washer from the front ).

Water goes in then straight out of the waste pipe


The waste pipe is probably too low, this is letting the water syphon out.
Try lifting the outlet pipe higher up, this should solve the prob.
There is a line on the back of the washer, which incates the min hieght for drain outlet.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Washing comes out smelling horrible! Any ideas?


It is not the washer that is causing the prob, more likely to be coming from waste pipe, and or sink if the pipe is connected to the sink waste pipe.
Check and clean filter in washer if it has one, and remove waste pipe from washer and check outlet is not partially clogged up with sediment and other substances.
If pipe goes into sink waste, then pour a sink pipe cleaning fluid of some description down sink waste.
Also make sure you are not doing too many low temp wshes, as this can cause a prob as well
Do a boil wash at least once a month without clothes in but with powder in.
This is called a maintenance wash, and helps keep the inside of washer clean, and free from smells.

Thanks.

Hi,
First remove the filter (if you can do this easily) - place a roasting pan under it to catch the water.

If you cannot get to any filter, remove the rear pipe from the waste pipe, and check it is not obstructed.
If it looks good enough, try a hot wash with 1 cup of soda crystals. This should clear any accumulation of grease in the pipes.

If still no good, you may have to open up the machine to clear any internal filter before the pump, and check pump vanes are still intact.

Will not drain


It sounds like the drainage may be blocked to prove this ;
1. Switch of the Washer
2. check youve switched off.
3. have a bucket handy.
4. Pull unit forward so you can access the pipes behind.
5. Locate the grey waste corrigated pipe connected to the waste plumbing. (Not the thin water pipe)
6. Remove corrigated (thicker) pipe and hold over the bucket.
5. switch unit back on. (Holding pipe over bucket)
6. Set the unit to final spin and start - this should empty the machine completely.

If the machine empties then your plumbing may need attention because the washer cannot push its waste water out through it.
You should get a full bucket load maybe more - so be ready to empty the bucket down the sink and reposition it.

If not then the drain pump motor may be faulty. This costs £19.99 + delviery from hotpoint - see : http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/search.pl?parts_search=s&model=wd63&part=pump. You will have to fit this yourself - or get a friend/engineer. I have never fitted one but anyone handy and safe with tools should be able to fit. I would guess no more than one hour to do.

However:

If you have warranty (machine is less than 1 year old) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to see if they can be booked in urgently...This should be free.

If you don't have warranty (your machine is older than 1 year) then its still worth calling Hotpoint - you will be charged £90 callout but parts are free for machines less than 5 years old + its warranted for 30days. This is what I recommend - especially if you have kids at home over easter!!! (then get the Extended Cover afterwards)
Call hotpoint service on 08704422510

kind regards...
