HOTPOINT WMA46 filter reconnect problem

My washing machine would not spin all the water, a bath mat had disintegrated, I got all the bots out of the filter the filter, I have replaced the filter but feel that I may not have replace it properly as it does not spin now. I am positive that maybe I have not put filter back in properly as it was awkward to put black cover back on

Regardless of the filter not being back in properly, this would not stop the m/c spinning. Remove the filter, and check it again for blockage. Push the hose on as far as it will go, or it will leak
Try spin again
Make sure you have not disturbed any wires to the motor, if still no spin, then remove motor and check carbons in motor.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

When I wash a bath mat the spin cycle never takes most of the water out of the mat so it is heavy with dripping water and difficult to put into the dryer. When I put on only the 'final spin' cyle it...


If your bath mat has a rubber backing, that would prevent the water from being centrifuged out of the mat. Even if you laid the mat in the drum with the wet side outwards, it would still only have a limited effect on removing the water.

My Samsung washing machine won't rinse or spin, I have been told to unscrew two bolts on the water pump but can't find the two bolts on the water pump, what does this look like?


I washed a bath mat and the dryrot from the back came off in the washer. The washer stopped spinning and won't drain now. I checked the hose to see if it was clogged, but appeared to me clear. Sounds like motor is trying to spin but won't move.

Water will not drain from the machine. We washed a bathmat with a rubber backing and it came apart. Something is clogged, but the owner's manual just says to restart the DRAIN program. We've done that...


Hi,
Draining problem is very common in Bosch washers. However, it is very easy to fix.

1) Remove the white circular plate, located on the bottom left. Push a small screwdriver or needle through it and simultaneously rotate the plate clockwise.
2) Open the drain valve. Rotate the circular black handle counterclockwise. Beware of residual water.
3) Clean it. Re-assemble in reverse order.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

We think we overloaded the machine with bath mats and since then the water did not drain and the machine does not work any more. All buttons are flashing.


your pump is totaly clogged with the math matt sand
you should be able to access the pump from the rear wall,
bring towels you will loose water

remove both hoses from the pump and ensure they are clear, wash the drain hose completly run water through it

make sure you pump is clean and free
to spin

reassemble and and plug back in

errors should clear

Calypso washer - LD Code - clothes still wet


harborstuff,
The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. I would bet that the bath mats left a bunch of stuff stuck in the recirculation pump hose, or pump itself, and the water cannot be drained fast enough. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. Hope this helps.
(Definitely get under there and check to make sure the pump hoses are not clogged. At $129 it's an expensive fix for a $10 bath mat that clogged up the hose with fuzz. 'know what I'm sayin'' :o) )

-samson39

BTW, I have the maintenance manual & have experience at replacing the recirc. pump, control board, motor board, touchpad, & lid switch so far.

LG Washing Machine stops spinning in mid cycle


IE:

• Water supply is not adequate in
area.
• Water supply taps are not
completely open.
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.

Solution:
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Straighten hose.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.

UE:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
spinning.

Out of balance with wet, heavy rug.

Do not use in washer. The fact that you got away with it before is your hint NOT to do this again or else bigger problems???
