The filter is located at the rear of the m/c, remove lower rear panel, and u will see a large black hose on the right, remove clip and hose ,inside u will see the filter, remove and clean ,refit making sure u get the hose on properly.
If your outlet pipe goes into the sink waste, remove connection and clean inside.
If it goes into a stand pipe make sure it is clear at the outlet end where it goes outside.
Also if u do not already do this, put the washer on a very hot wash with powder in but no clothes and let it do a full prog.
This is called a maintenance wash, and should be done 4 to 6 times a year, this helps to keep it clean and stop it smelling.

Also make sure u are using sufficient powder, and not washing everything at 40oC.
Plz rate my sokution.
Thanks.

Hi.

Here few tips:

Check the type of detergent used. Try changing detergent.
Open the drain filter cap and check for blockage. Clean the filter. Access is in front at the bottom.
Check the drain hose at the back. If height setting is incorrect water with flow back inside the appliance creating the problem.
Access the pressure switch and clean the pressure hose connected to the switch. A defective pressure switch may result in under-filling, leaving more detergent than normal at the end of the cycle.

What does the code f-05 for a hotpoint ultima WT640 1400 SPN


F05 measn some blockage, check and clean the filter at the front; remove the top cover of the machine,(power off) and disconnect the flexible hoses from the dispenser. Check if theyre blocked. The dispenser itself can be seperated - generally held together with plastic clips. Clean out any crud or hardened detergent.

Fabric conditioner is taken from the detergent tray by siphon action. Most likely flexible siphon pipe is blocked. Remove machine top, identify the pipe coming from the softener compartment, detach and clean.

Hope helps.

It makes my clothes smell really bad


I am not familar with this machine...but
it probably has a lint filter on the washer somewher inside the tub. Probably close to the front. also these front loaders have a big rubber seal, check and make sure nothing has fallen in between them. They make a specific product for cleaning these machines, sell it on same isle as detergent.

I cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please


you probably have something like a bra wire jammed in there. no option but to pull real hard with a pair of pliers.
smell is not caused by filter. often smell is due to using liquid detergent. after you have done filter, put on the hottest wash and change to powder detergent

Smell in washer


What kind of smell is it?  If I can guess, I think it may be a musty or "locker-room" (sorry for bad memories) smell.  I have found that sometimes a change in detergent (or sometimes the same detergent you have been using for years) can cause build up and retain that musty smell.  I had to actually remove a inner basket completely and wash out both inner and outer drums to get rid of the funky smell.  She had used the same detergent for years.  Do you wash a lot of clothes in cold water?  This could also make the situation worse.  Try running a full empty load on hot with a bunch of bleach through the wash cycle, then stop the unit for a bit and let it soak and see if it clears up.  Also, try changing detergents and use a HE type soap.  HE causes very little sudding action, which in turn will stop the build up.  If this doesnt work, you may have to remove the inner tub and clean out both baskets (a lot of time, and need a special wrench, unless you know how to work it off).  Let me know if this helps any.   Jim

Conditioner tray won't empty


i assume the detergent drawer is really clean especially the conditioner part.fault may be that the roof of the detergent box (the part the drawer goes into) is clogged. open drawer half-way at point conditioner should be taken and check if there is a spurt of water into the conditioner section. if not push a hairgrip or similiar into the holes in roof of box as you may have a blockage there.
